greyhound meets elderflower cocktail

by Eva Felis on April 2, 2014

I obviously missed the peak of grapefruit season by a couple of weeks. Yet it’s never too late for a good recipe and too early for a bracing cocktail. Thus I am right on time somehow…
For the most part of my life, I haven’t been very fond of grapefruit. If I would have eaten one, Weiterlesen



crema di orancello

by Eva Felis on March 4, 2014

A couple of days ago we celebrated an anniversary. It had been five years since we left Germany to life for the next three years in the USA. Life may be a journey, but the path is not a long and straight stretch of road. And I don’t mind. Wouldn’t it be tedious to have Weiterlesen

Lately on a girls night out… that’s pushing it a bit, it was a weeknight and nothing about it said party at all, rather catching up with long missed friends, good talks and nice food. But there had been a cocktail, that left a strong impression on me and it wasn’t even mine. I tried Weiterlesen



plum and cinnamon flavored bourbon

by Eva Felis on October 4, 2013

October sneaked in on me, it’s getting colder, even in the South. Although we are blessed with gorgeous weather throughout the day, the nights really cooled off. Yet it’s not the time to give you the fall speech for me, you know… get your blankets out, heat up the fireplace and make yourself some hot Weiterlesen



mango rosemary caiprissimo

by Eva Felis on September 18, 2013

I had been eager to share one of my favorite fall recipes with you. I had been literally waiting for cooler weather, as well plums to show up at farmers markets. I was looking forward to turn on my oven and pull out a fragrant cake. But this doesn’t look like my beloved plum cake Weiterlesen



cherry and cinnamon vodka

by 1 big bite on July 17, 2012

“You are like your mother!” Depending on your mum this could be a compliment or someone is asking for trouble. I like to say this to Mr. F then he shows his ‘gem sensitive’ side. I grew up eating sand in the sandbox as a baby and climbing on trees as soon I could reach Weiterlesen



not the classic sgroppino

by 1 big bite on June 28, 2012

Some of my favorite treats evolved from traditional recipes, they are twisted and tweaked until they fit my taste buds. But most likely I simply have to change some ingredients, it’s necessary if you are for example out of caviar (happens to me all the time). And not to forget, being creative while cooking is Weiterlesen



flipper: orange juice and ice cream float

by 1 big bite on May 31, 2012

Is it wasting your youth when you spend a big part of it, sitting in an Italian cafe preferable at a table outside, watching people and at the same time hoping not to be seen by a certain group of them like mums and teachers. If you are having a flipper in front of you,  Weiterlesen



Brazilian coffee cocktail

by 1 big bite on February 10, 2012

Lately I am a magnet for minor and intermediate disasters, actually I always had been but things are escalating. Sometimes I believe bad things just happen to me but at the end it is how it is, this is me and I should come with a warning. Just a list of last days debacles: I Weiterlesen



hot chocolate

by 1 big bite on December 8, 2011

There are some quite busy days behind me! We moved from Illinois to Tennessee and although I unpacked boxes from morning to night there is still some unsorted stuff around that needs to find a new space. So far I like it here although I am a little surprised about the weather, we heard about Weiterlesen
