German Krautsalat – coleslaw

by Eva Felis on June 11, 2014


The dust had settled, in retrospect the renovation of my living room had been more than smooth. Gradually I am getting used to the feeling being fortune to life in a house I transformed just the way I like it: fitting to my needs and wishes. The walls between living and dinning room disappeared and Weiterlesen



hot brown

by Eva Felis on June 4, 2014

The downside of moving to a different city every year is you have to leave your friends behind every time. The upside is you have friend to visit and very good reasons to come back. Last weekend I had been walking in Memphis again. It had been a couple of months since my last visit, Weiterlesen



bean there, done that

by Eva Felis on May 20, 2014

You know what they say: if it tastes good it’s not good for you. These days the only exceptions seams to be chocolate, I am kidding, totally not, that’s what I need to believe. Let’s say there are two exceptions that prove the rule: the delicious Mediterranean cuisine is known for colorful vegetables, lots of Weiterlesen



kale pesto with a touch of lemon and capers

by Eva Felis on May 12, 2014

I had been going back and forth about if and how to remodel my living room. The whole situation is a complex one, as in small or rather tiny. I needed to close an opening between two rooms to creating a proper office space but would create a living room in size of a shoebox Weiterlesen



arugula rösti

by Eva Felis on January 22, 2014

Rösti are my recently rediscovered comfort food and I just say it like it is, without wasting my breath, make them. They are good for you, I saw the weather news, it’s cold outside, you need Rösti. I have to disclose with a little regret, I didn’t grow up eating Rösti.  And even later in Weiterlesen



pickly pickles

by Eva Felis on August 11, 2013

Growing up my parents had been tending a Schrebergarten (community garden) in our hometown in Germany. This garden was not part of one of those gardening communities, where they constantly check if you cut your grass accurately and you find some (actually many) of them strangely decorated with garden gnomes and plastic deer. Not at Weiterlesen



beet greens stir-fry

by Eva Felis on July 25, 2013

Every now and then I crank up my oven (yes I am crazy enough to use it even in summer months), I also put in some red beets, drizzled with oil and wrapped up nice and tightly with aluminum foil. I love them roasted the best and store them ready to go in the refrigerator Weiterlesen



salmon and goat cheese stuffed portobellos

by Eva Felis on July 16, 2013

Do you remember this situation? You are on a farmers market and you discover the most beautiful and freshest portobello mushrooms you have ever seen.  Well maybe not, but for sure you had been intrigued by a fascinating and/or unknown food before. I believe this is what enjoying food is all about. If you don’t Weiterlesen



potato and tomato salad with gremolata dressing

by Eva Felis on May 2, 2013

Once upon a time I wished I were a princess. No never the queen, ladies with this job description have kind of a bad reputation. I guess there had been too much Grimm’s fairy stories in my early youth where the queen tent to be evil and demanding the princess’ heart. Lucky me becoming a Weiterlesen



leek and pancetta quiche

by Eva Felis on April 24, 2013

Did I brag about our sunny weather here in the South East last time? I did and I won’t take it back even it is raining right now and drops are falling on my window. A spring shower gives me a break from the sun. My belly asks for comfort food and my mind for Weiterlesen
