Today I have something nice for you guys. But even more I have something nice for my Bridesmaids, as they are the ones that actually come and eat the food I have prepared.
I am getting married this summer and even if we don’t have the tradition with the Maids here in Switzerland, I believe it’s a lovely one. So for our special day this summer I’ve decided to have my friends of honor and best sisters being my Bridesmaids. And as they do so much for me through this time (just thinking about all my wedding bla bla they deal with), tonight I can give them back just a little bit, by cooking for them and celebrate our friendships.
With a big plate full of veggie sticks and some Corn Tortillas to Dip. But these Lentil crackers! Guys! Heaven!
It’s all low fat, vegan, healthy and super yummie!

Yesterday was my friends birthday. I asked her sister, what her favorite cake was and she said Poppy Seed or Chocolate. You know me: Why choose if you can have both, right?
A Poppy Seed Chocolate cake with a Marzipan layer
This Marzipan layer should have stayed in the middle, Poppy and Chocolate everywhere, but the little cake had other plans and made this incredible gooey chocolate marzipan base (Yes, it sunk). The bigger cake handled my plan a bit better. Either way, the taste was delightful and the little trick of the situation: You just act like the result is exactly what you wanted.
So I made a little experiment and the result was a beautiful cake, tasty and moist. Actually 2 beautiful cakes. A normal sized cake for my dear friend Andrea and this little sweety in the photo.
You probably know that tomorrow is Valentine’s day. And even if I and my soon to be husband don’t celebrate this at all (at least that’s what we say), it is hard to forget about it, if it’s all over the stores and commercials. So what happens is, a week before Valentine’s day I get reminded at least once a day, that this day is around the corner – This day we kind of don’t want to celebrate (Because why show love and gratitude on one day if you can show it every day).
But every time by the end of the week I capitulate: I just looove making presents and love notes and it’s just an other reason to bake some sweets for my love – with a little self cheating trick: I just bake it a day before – resisting the Valentines pressure not.
And then there is the other reason why to bake cakes: There is no lovelier smell for me then the smell of bread, cake or cookies in the oven, while it is raining or snowing outside. That simple.
But why is this cake so incredible rich and moist? The secret ingredient is no more a secret: Creme fraiche or Plantbased Cashew Sour Cream/ Silken Tofu
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do and I wish everybody a beautiful Valentine’s day or just a great day without Valentine, whatever you prefer.

I first thought, it might be a bit early for this post (as most people want to detox in spring time), but I changed my mind. It can’t really ever be too early for this!
So it’s the end of cold and freezing january and after all the holiday deliciousness and hearty savory food I enjoyed in the last 2 months, it’s time to get back on feeling-fabulous track.
Also I wanted to wait with this post, because we just saw some green drinkable something in the post before. But then I thought, the green hell with it. You can never eat or drink too many greens. And I myself love recipes that show me new ways how to increase the daily greens. Especially in the winter time…. were we sometimes forget about their existence.
The second reason is, that so many people around me these days are ill and have bad colds etc. So it is definitely time for an immune system boost!
So I thought about this warm half raw- half cooked Soup for the maximum of nutritions.
All you need is a blender (I know I’m a lucky girl with my Vitamix blender, but i believe any blender will work)
The trick with the soup is to not cook the greens. They stay raw. For the warmth of the soup we add warm water to the blender instead of cold. And for the warmth inside us we add Garlic, Ginger, Pepper and Cayenne Pepper. Only the Peas are cooked and added while still hot.
This metabolism/immune system booster soup is full of Potassium, iron, zinc, and lots of Vitamins. Also the celery is high in sodium and gives the soup a natural salty taste, in case you don’t want to add salt.
It’s a super savory and satisfying meal and perfect for a detox or energy boost.
The preparation time is less then 10 Minutes.

Here it is, my second guest Post straight from the recipe book of Mama Lovestone.
You might think “Isn’t this cold Cucumber and Basil Soup more of a summer dish”. Well, I won’t contradict. But hey, there is an other half of the world that has summer time right now. So this is for all you people that enjoy a warm climate right now or that simply don’t care and like to enjoy some cold creamy soup when it snows – just like me.
You can prepare it the day before and it only takes you about 10 Minutes to make this super savory soup.
It’s a great dish to serve in small glasses at the Buffet or also as an appetizer.
That certain something comes from the Noilly Prat, a french Wermouth. If you can’t find that brand, you could also use “Martini extra dry”. Not the same taste, but it would work. The Original Recipe is with greek yoghurt, but I “veganized” the recipe (replaced with soy yoghurt) and as I have tried both ways before, I must say, there is no taste difference. This Soup is simply a taste bomb!

Happy weekend to everyone with many many tasty highlights of course!
As I promised, here my first guest post from no one less then my mother. For the new years eve dinner she prepared a beautiful Buffet for 16 hungry people. Two of the recipes I would like to share with you, as they are simple and fast to make but are a little star, when it comes to tickle your taste buds.
And…my personal opinion: Little scrumptious food combinations in small classes make me happy just to look at. This is a great option for a Buffet or also as an appetizer.
For me there is no better cuisine then cooking with simple high quality ingredients. And the combination of sweet Cherry Tomatoes and creamy rich Avocado just scream to be eaten together….at least in my head (common, Avo-Toast with Tomatoes and cracked Pepper- who doesn’t get a kick out of this 2 Minute prep. meal)

As a first course I would maybe make some homemade focaccia to go with it. Or what are your serving ideas?
What a looong wordpress summer break I had….guess I was busy drinking that Watermelon-Mint juice. But with this beautiful fall arriving, I created a new Recipe. My kitchen is full of great autumn ingredients like Persimmons, Figs, Grapes, Pumpkins, Apples, Coles and Carrots and Soups and Stews are almost a daily must for dinner.
9 years ago in Key West, Florida, I ordered a Beet Pasta Plate. I don’t exactly now the combination of the dish anymore. But what I do remember is that impressive pink pasta on my plate and I loved it.
Remembering this, I created a Beet Pesto, with 5 simple ingredients: Beet, Garlic, Sun dried Tomatoes, Cashews and Pepper.
I have to say, I’m a little bit in love with it! And to keep my karma balanced I of course share.

In my kitchen I have 2 horse power standing! What? Yes, it’s true. (careful, this might be little surreptitious advertising) And the 2 horse power have a name: Vitamix!
I bought me this High speed Blender about 8 months ago and I have no! idea how I lived without it.
Not just that I make all my Smoothies ( and yes, I drink A LOT of Smoothies), Sauces or fine Soups in it. It’s also great for my next Recipe (not that you really need a Vitamix to make it….but if you have one, you know what I’m talking about Hashtag Vitamixlove)
I’m in Mango heaven with this Dip and could eat it all the time. If your mixer doesn’t chop the Lemongrass fine enough or you don’t have fresh Chili etc, you can also use some Red Thai Curry Paste instead of Chili, Lemongrass, Garlic, Onion and Cumin (Vegan Info: normal Curry Paste contains Fish Sauce)
This Dip is fresh and extremely flavorful and brings me some Summer into this crazy first day of April (we had some snow this morning, then rain at lunch and now for dinner time beautiful sunshine. Make up your mind!)

I’m back with a few more recipes for you guys…..as mostly easy to prepare.
This Recipe can be perfect for a Buffet at a Party or a lunch or dinner for the family.
*** Couscous with crunchy spicy Falafel and a light “Yoghurt” Sauce ***
As a little extra to the taste buds I sprinkled Pomegranate Seeds over the dish….goes so well with the oriental spices!

Chai in August? There is a good reason for that. 3 weeks of rain and wind and storm – movie nights, wool socks and tea. Does that sound like August to you?? Maybe in Australia! But not on this side of the world! And I am not kidding, when I tell you, I will make a soup for dinner…
Most people that follow me, know about my passion for smoothies and so today I combined my passion with some warming spices which took me to creamy heaven! This delicious vegan Chai Mylk was born!
All you need is a blender, Bananas, Dates, Water, Cinnamon, Cardamom, Ground Clove and Fresh Ginger.
Even though its raw, the spices warm you from the inside.
If you follow the 80/10/10 or rawtill4 concept, this is a great breakfast in the winter time.

A great day to everyone! Let the fruit be with you!
