Celery cream soup
You know, there are some vegetables which when you see them, you immediately have an idea of what to do with it. Like a broccoli for example. When I think of broccoli, a broccoli soup, or a gratin or just plain boiled as a side dish come to my mind. It would be the same…
Potatoe and vegetable soup with minced meat
With my last post I was probably way too early and optimistic talking about picknicks. Since then we had one sunny day and the rest of the week was pretty winter-like weather. In a way it was my own fault as I could have expected it from April. In German there is a saying “April…
Savory goulash soup for cold days
Easter is only weeks away, and I thought it’s about time to post few suitable recipes. You know, something light. I was really looking forward to it, even though outside it doesn’t feel like Spring just yet. And then today morning I looked out of the window, only to find snow and temperatures below zero.
Carrot soup with an orienal twist
I hope you are enjoying Winter as much as I do. I have been covered in snow for the good part of this year, and mind you, the year just began. Well, more like I had to go away to see the real Winter, but who wouldn’t want to wander in waist-deep snow in -20C…

Carrot cream soup with gorgonzola cream
The new year started and with it also a new week. And along with it my holiday is going to an end. It is probably the first time I really did nothing during that time. Ah the blissfulness of doing nothing.
Zucchini soup with potato croûtons
Let’s talk about zucchinis. Although its season is between June and October you can see them in the shops all year round. I have to admit, it’s one of the vegetables I always have in my fridge.
Minestrone, inspired by Jamie Oliver’s 15 minutes
I don’t watch cooking shows very often. They always make me so hungry and a little bit jealous of how perfect and organised it all looks on the screen. Of course I’m aware of the many takes and hours it all requires, but still.
Is there a vegetable you don’t like? I’m pretty sure everyone has. For me it was a cauliflower. Maybe it was the way my parents usually prepared it, cooked and sprinkled with bread crumbs. Or maybe it was just the taste. Whatever it was, it was probably the reason why I avoided it in my…
