Liege Waffles

It’s really hard not to love waffles. We used to make them for special Sunday breakfasts with my family, especially when we had some friends and family over. The old waffle iron we had made heart-shaped waffle bits, six forming one large waffle, so it was really all about sharing and loving while tearing the…

Avocado and Feta Cheese on Sourdough

I love avocado and all the ways you can use it, but be it guacamole, baked or in a salad, nothing can top this easy spread. A friend visiting from australia showed me this amazing combination and it has been a little obsession for almost a year now. What’s perfect is it can be a…

Pear Tart with Frangipane

My love for fruit pies and tarts is ever-growing and if they have a special twist like this one… well even better. The secret of this pear tart lies in the frangipane, a delicious almondy sweet layer between the pastry and the pears which gives the tart a crunchy sweet texture (and it is similar…

Sachertorte or Sacher Cake

This was one of the first cakes I ever made (still a teenager then), it is really easy to make and is still one of my favorite chocolate cakes. This recipe is an improved version of the recipe from my mom’s old cookbook and definitely my favorite version of the famous Austrian cake. What I particularly like about…

Tita’s Red Pie

  Berries galore is what this pie is all about. My friend Tita first made a pie like that ages ago, and we all loved it so much, we’re always begging her to make it. I’ve been craving it so many times and finally thought about making it. It’s fairly easy and won’t take much…

Sweet Potato “Fries”

Sweet potatoes are naturally packed with more nutrients and fiber than regular ones, which makes them healthier by default. But they don’t even fall much behind in the taste department the regular French fries if you prepare them correctly. With this recipe they’ll be crunchy, tasty and not to mention without any unhealthy oils. Served…

My Favorite Chia Pudding

My latest breakfast obsession (after long periods of smoothies and overnight oats) is chia pudding. It’s refreshing, delicious and really good for you – full of healthy fats and superfoods that will benefit you on every level, and it’s even gluten-free, for all of those who can’t tolerate it. I love that I can make…

Best Salad Ever

So easy to make, this salad is the perfect combination of sweet, salty and sour. I prefer to have it for lunch by itself, as it is packed with flavor and nutrients with some toasted bread (&butter of course) on the side, but it goes really great with red meat dishes, risottos or some rich…

Lemon Tart

I know lemons and other sour and refreshing fruits are usually more popular in summer, but with this one, I never really care which time of year it is. Whenever in need of sth sweet & sour this tart is perfect – refreshing but still so rich in flavor. You can add another meringue layer…

Apple Crumble

Sometimes I really crave a sweet dinner and I want to make a proper meal of it, not just have a dessert after I’ve eaten something. This apple crumble is one of my favorites for that. It’s healthy, nicely sour and not too sweet, and great with some greek yoghurt as well, so you can…

The Richest Flourless Chocolate Cake

There is no such thing as too much chocolate, and if you eat the dark one it is also pretty good for you. So here is the recipe for the ultimate dark chocolate cake. It is light, fondant-like and gooey in the middle, flourless = gluten-free and seriously DELICIOUS. It’s amazing on its own but depending on…
