Pasta with Mixed Mushroom Ragu

The great thing about cooking for yourself is that you can basically do whatever you want in your own kitchen. There are no hard, fast rules. You whip up a work of art or prepare something simple, experiment with unlikely combinations, try new cuisines, whatever you like. Cooking is your own personal canvas and who’s […]

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 […]

Porcini Risotto with Sage

Porcini Risotto with Sage

What can be more satisfying than a bowl of homemade risotto? Sadly something I think we enjoy far to seldom. All that stirring, right? Yes, we love to eat it but seldom what to go through the trouble of making it. I actually don’t mind making risotto. It’s easy enough, and while keeping a watchful […]

Pasta in a Gorgonzola Sauce

Pasta in a Gorgonzola Sauce with Spinach, Mushrooms and Fresh Herbs

This dish is inspired by a pizza that ABSOLUTELY love and used to quite often make for myself. I remember this phase well. I constantly had a hankering for wild mushrooms, gorgonzola and spinach. Something I secretly enjoyed when I had evenings on my own. Yes, we all have people in our lives that have […]

Pasta with Artichokes and Wild Mushrooms

One of the things I love about fall is the assortment of wild mushrooms available at the farmers market. I absolutely love mushrooms—they are fantastically hearty and filling. Together with artichokes they add so much flavor and texture to this delicious pasta dish. Harvesting mushrooms in Germany is big business. Germany has some 5,000 mushroom […]

Beef and Shiitake-Lemongrass Miso Soup

Cold season has approached and I am in serious need of hearty, warming foods. With all the veggies in this miso soup, it’s a wonderfully healthy and nourishing bowl of soothing deliciousness and umami glory. Ginger adds an incredible zing, lemongrass, a bright, fresh flavor, shiitake mushrooms a boost for the immune system and nutrient […]

Spicy Mongolian Beef and Shiitake Mushroom Stir-Fry

Craving something spicy and slightly sweet? Despite what the name suggests, Mongolian beef doesn’t actually trace its roots back to Mongolian cuisine. Neither the cooking method or the ingredients have anything to do with the country of Mongolia. The name only implies that it’s “exotic”. I can only say that the picture doesn’t do this […]

Foods That Are Good For Your Smile‏

Dental care is a very complex theme. Both scientists and dentists have differing opinions, only to confuse us even more. One says we should brush our teeth with a soft “manual” toothbrush, the other says, no, you should definitely use an electric brush. Yes, and fluoride is good, only to told later, actually it is […]

Crustless Spinach, Prosciutto and Mushroom Quiche

Real men don’t eat quiche, they eat smoked bacon and egg pie! Well, I’d say quiche isn’t much different. The name itself originated from Germany (the word ‘quiche’ is derived from the German ‘Kuchen’, meaning cake) and was later called ‘Lorraine’ or ‘quiche Lorraine’ by the French. Although by definition, a quiche must be in […]

This quick and easy pasta dish with chanterelle mushrooms is a great option for a weeknight meal that gives the impression you put a lot of work into it! Pink peppercorns & mascarpone turn it into something delectable! I picked up a package of bird’s nest egg noodles which are somewhere between tagliatelle and linguine […]

Buckwheat Risotto with a Medley of Mushrooms

A extra nutritious spin on the traditional risotto, buckwheat risotto makes for a hearty and healthy dish. Why use buckwheat in a risotto? Well, not only is it gluten-free just like rice, buckwheat is superior in nutrition to rice, especially white rice. Yes, it has a misleading name that, understandably, can cause confusion. Buckwheat is […]
