You know what the best part about Christmas turkey is? Leftover Turkey Sandwiches the next day! I’m looking forward to them every year! This year we had an exceptional big turkey due to some mix-up with our order, which meant more leftovers and more sandwiches in the coming week! Continue Reading…
You know those nights when you want a home cooked dinner but are too tired/lazy to stand in the kitchen for hours and just want an easy, quick, no-fuss meal? That is exactly what this recipe is! I created it on exactly one of those nights. I wanted comfort food but was tired of the usually tomato pasta that we have way too often. So I chopped up all the vegetables we had in our fridge, whipped up a creamy, spicy peanut sauce, cooked the noodles (they only take 5 minutes), tossed in the veggies and voilà dinner was ready.

Today I have a savory recipe for a change. Flammkuchen is a thin pizza-like crust, usually spread with crème fraîche and topped with bacon and onions. It is delicious and great to get creative and use any leftovers, that are sitting in the fridge. For me that meant potatoes, prosciutto, and a lighter but equally creamy sauce made with greek yogurt, sour cream and low fat curd cheese.
Right in time for the Oscars I want to share with you a super simple and quick recipe that is sure to be a crowd pleaser: Truffled Parmesan Popcorn. If you like things truffled, you will love this recipe!
It is officially summer now and the hottest days are yet to come. A lot of times when it’s hot outside, I don’t feel like having a heavy dinner, but am also not satisfied with just a salad. For those days, I have a light, low-carb dinner alternative for you: Shrimp (Rock N’) Rolls.
Filled full of veggies, these light shrimp rolls are perfect on their own or with a salad on the side. Shrimp (Rock N’) Rolls are my take on Vietnamese spring rolls. These are more coconutty and juicier. I’ve filled mine with a coconut shrimp curry that I’ve cooked before and added some cashews roasted in dark sesame oil for a bit of crunch.
I’ve got a new kitchen toy: an Airfryer. It is a mini oven that uses hot circulating air to cook food and you need little to no oil. Every participant received one at the Food Camp last week.
At first I was a bit skeptical. Do I really need another kitchen appliance just to be able to cook the perfect fries? But after reading the manual and recipe book I realized the Airfryer can so much more than faux-frying, as I like to call it. It is more like a mini oven making it possible to roast, grill and bake as well. And I got really excited to try it out.
