chai chocolate banana bread

by 1 big bite on April 7, 2014

The mother of all questions, at least if it comes to banana bread, is for sure: Do we really need another banana bread recipe? For the last couple of days, knowing I am working on one of those “another” recipes, I paid more attention to blog posts and articles related to this topic – take Weiterlesen

 applesauce tiramisu

The majority of people who come into our life, don’t stay. They hang around for months or even years, until we move on or they do. They are former classmates, neighbors and coworkers. Afterwards most of them disappear from our sight. Often they don’t leave more behind than fading memories, not all of them Weiterlesen

orange marzipan cake

by Eva Felis on February 18, 2014

I hate throwing away food. I am aware of the harsh intensity of this word hate, which I am just throwing around and at you. However it is not an angry hate, I would describe it as a disgusting hate, whereas disgusting on it’s own wouldn’t kick it. Around here leftover food will be revived Weiterlesen

a birthday cake like sunshine on snowy hills

by Eva Felis on December 28, 2013

I am a late summer birthday girl and can’t actually imagine, how unfair or complicated it is to having a birthday just around Christmas. I heard complains like: it’s hard to celebrate because friends and family are already busy with all this holiday stuff and a party is not as appreciated as in any other Weiterlesen

vanilla kipferl

by Eva Felis on December 10, 2013

One of Germany’s favorite Christmas cookie is actually of Austrian origin, Vienna to be precise. I didn’t know that or I did and forgot about that and at the end, it doesn’t matter at all. What matters, and I might totally disagree at this point with most of Germany’s population, is that they are mainly Weiterlesen

christmas skillet cookie

by Eva Felis on December 2, 2013

I had been growing up in Germany and obviously Thanksgiving had never been much of a big deal. Why? Someone actually asked me that… Well no pilgrims, no Indians, no Thanksgiving Day, that’s basically the explanation for the lack of it in an otherwise very holiday friendly German calendar. Now it’s one of my favorite Weiterlesen

by Eva Felis on November 13, 2013

 
Tastewise there is a lot going on with this cakelettes. They are little bundles of flavor, no doubt about that. Nevertheless I have to admit, I went somehow overboard with this title: white chocolate macchiato cakelettes with coconut flakes.  What you read is what you get. Although all this different ingredients come together very well, Weiterlesen

pumpkin spice muffins

by Eva Felis on October 22, 2013

I am sitting at my desk and it doesn’t actually matter if I look to my right or left, there are piles of papers and notebooks everywhere. The stacks continue behind me on my bookshelf and even on the floor.  All these pages are about food, they contain ideas, tips and tricks, but mostly recipes. Weiterlesen

fall fruit streusel cake

by Eva Felis on October 14, 2013

I told you, I would serve you a cake as soon as my oven is back on duty. The service guy gave us the pleasure of his company – finally. I have to admit I had been miffed about this situation. We are in the era where anything can be delivered in between 24 hour Weiterlesen

apple and pear jam with green cardamom

by Eva Felis on September 26, 2013

 
What can I say? It’s sat but true. My oven still suffers from a mysterious case of an exploding glass door. There is nothing about good customer service if you need it, ya think? Yes this is sarcasm! But me uber excited about the approaching fall and the affiliated arriving of seasonal fruits like plums Weiterlesen
