Best Ever Double Chocolate Brownie Bread

Double Chocolate Brownie Bread (Vegan)

I really mean it when I say that this double chocolate brownie bread is the BEST EVER I’ve ever made. I only other thing that comes close to it are these — real brownies. This chocolate bread is equally addictive, but a whole lot healthier. It’s made with spelt flour, just a little muscovado sugar […]

Easy Apple Pear Phyllo Tart Recipe

Easy Apple Pear Phyllo Tart

Simple, delicious AND perfect for those who don’t like super sweet desserts. That’s me! I love savory. And that’s what’s so great about this apple pear phyllo tart. It relies mainly on the natural flavors of the apples and pear. Though, I also use a little pure organic unrefined mascobado cane sugar to add a […]

Honey-Puffed Rice Granola with Cardamon Recipe, Gluten-free

Honey-Puffed Rice Granola with Cardamom

Honey-puff granola, oh yeah. Equal amounts of organic gluten-free oats and puffed brown rice cereal add a “cloud-effect” to a normally quite crunchy granola. And when I say “cloud-effect”, I’m talking light and airy. Light and airy together with some good ‘ole crunch. Kinda like mixing “honey pops” cereal with something healthy like müsli, but […]

Full of warming flavors like cinnamon, bourbon vanilla and ginger, here’s a crisp made with wholesome ingredients (oats, walnuts, maple syrup, caramel-toned mascabado sugar, coconut oil, and a winning combination of cranberries, apples, and oranges). Love […]

Inside this apple crumble are a number of tender apples and crumble topping that provides plenty of sweetness and crunch. This is an original German recipe that has been passed down for generations, thanks to my friend Ines’s Oma. It’s a simple recipe that uses just a little more than a handful of ingredients and […]

Apple Celery Lentil Salad with Walnuts & Parsley

Apple Celery Lentil Salad

Apple Celery Lentil Salad – what a combo! Okay a combo with flashbacks to my childhood. My mother was all about granny smith apples and celery sticks as the perfect snack for kids. Albeit our celery were smothered in Cheese Whiz, which back then was the equivalent to today’s Nutella. Okay, not that you would […]

Kohlrabi Apple Salad with prosciutto and dijon-mustard dressing

Kohlrabi Apple Salad with Honey-Dijon Dressing

This Kohlrabi Apple Salad recipe was ignited by my French friend Magali who continues to inspire me. It’s based on a salad she makes often. Though, her version uses jicama and baby spinach. I’ve searched everywhere in Hamburg for jicama (pronounced hee-cama) — not a chance. Whether the farmers markets or specialty food markets, I […]

Miso Kohlrabi Apple Salad

This crunchy miso kohlrabi apple salad tossed in a Japanese inspired miso dressing is the perfect way to introduce Germany’s darling to your table – although this gnarly looking vegetable may look a little “alien”, don’t let it’s looks deceive you — it’s actually super tasty. I absolutely love it raw in salads or on […]

Lamb Merguez, Mushroom, Thyme and Apple Wild Rice Pilaf

Merguez and Apple Wild Rice Pilaf

There is something about wild rice pilaf that is so comforting to me. Winter. Cozy. Comfort. Food. Yes, the kind that is perfect for those chilly winter days, one that screams comfort food. Maybe it’s because, when I was a kid wild rice was one of those things that always found its way to the […]

black rice salad with mango, tart apple, fresh chili, cilantro, mint, coconut flakes, and cashews in a sesame lime dressing

Black Rice Salad with Mango and Apple

Although there are times when I enjoy eating a salad more than others (ahem, every day ending in “y”!)… I don’t ever really need an excuse to have a salad. Even at this time of year. In winter, that just means I am eating more grain salads, or warm salads loaded up with roasted vegetables […]

Thai Inspired Kohlrabi Coleslaw

Thai Inspired Kohlrabi Coleslaw

This crunchy kohlrabi salad is the perfect way to introduce Germany’s darling to your table – although gnarly looking, it’s a very tasty vegetable. It can be stir-fried, steamed or boiled, but I swear raw is the way to go! Flavor and texture-wise, kohlrabi has an apple-like crunch, slightly resembles a radish in texture and […]

Gluten-Free Apple Pie Squares (So Delicious!)

Gluten-Free Apple Pie Squares (So Delicious!)

This recipe is thanks to my dear French friend Magali from Geneva. One of her friends has a strong allergy to gluten (he actually went to the hospital a few times due to bad reactions before he was told about having an intolerance), so her daughter Gaelle made him these apple squares with gluten-free ingredients […]

Snowball White Radish and Apple Salad with Fresh Dill & Pine Nuts

White Radish Salad with Apple, Fresh Dill & Pine Nuts

Italian white radishes are a cool-season crop which grows best in spring and fall. They are a great addition to salads or, as in this recipe, as the basis for a salad. When buying radishes, make sure that they are very fresh, with smooth skins and firm roots (wrinkles and cracks are a sign of […]

Oxheart Cabbage Coleslaw with Apple and Mango

Oxheart Cabbage Coleslaw with Apple and Mango

Oxheart cabbage is the one with the pointy head and my absolute favorite cabbage. Actually it’s the only cabbage I buy on a regular basis. It has succulent leaves making it excellent choice for salads like coleslaw and is everyone’s darling for sauerkraut. More often than not, I add it broth-based soups, let it wilt […]

Banana and Raspberry Muffin

Banana and Raspberry Muffins

Here’s another perfect on-the-go any time of day snack. This batch of beautiful, healthy banana and raspberry muffins are made with yogurt, homemade apple sauce (easy as pie, by the way) and sweetened with a little bit of natural cane sugar and a smidgen of honey. I used half all-purpose flour and half whole grain […]

Beet and Apple Salad with Dill and Tarragon

From September until March flavorful beets are especially easy to find. Get creative and add them to your salads. If you are a beet lover, this combination of beets, apples, sautéed shallots, fresh dill and crispy fried tarragon is a must try. I am a big fan of fresh beets – boiled, steamed, roasted and […]

Parsnip Apple Risotto

I have to admit, I recently developed a soft spot for, yes, here it is…parsnips! Subtly sweet and a touch earthy, I would have never imagined that I would ever touch a parsnip. My early recollections of them are, well, just that one time a year, when they were roasted in the oven along with […]
