I’m always a bit sad when fall arrives, because summer is my favorite season. But then I remind myself of all the good things that fall brings: colored leaves, roasted chestnuts, the cozy layered fashion, dark lipstick, and last but not least Pumpkin Spice Latte. Since Starbucks introduced this drink back in 2003, it has become one of the most popular seasonal beverages. I created this recipe to have a healthier and cheaper alternative to the original one – with real pumpkin, less calories and all natural ingredients. So snuggle in your onesie, make yourself a cup, turn on Netflix and enjoy fall season! Continue reading
Hello lovelies! As fall is approaching and the temperatures are sinking, I crave homemade comfort food even more. This week’s recipe is a colorful combination of savory roasted eggplants and flavorsome spiced rice inspired by the yummy ingredients used in the oriental cuisine.
Dear friends, please be aware that the following recipe contains a shit load of sugar, fat and chocolate. Basically all the good stuff. As you may have guessed, this is not a healthy recipe. I repeat: THIS IS NOT A HEALTHY RECIPE. Common side effects may include overeating, prolonged cheat days and a serious chocolate addiction – which I won’t be held responsible for. Please enjoy these muffins at your own risk and in reasonable amounts. Also, please share them with your friends and family. They will love you forever. You’re welcome.

I see we’ll get along perfectly 😉 If you also prefer your food healthy and dairy-free, you’ll love this recipe. It’s the perfect combo of sweet, salty, crunchy and creamy and my favorite treat this summer.
Paris is the perfect place for food lovers. I was blown away by the variety and quality of the food we had. One of my discoveries was canelé, a pastry flavored with rum and vanilla, that was incredibly tasty. But not only the sweets were great, also most of the other food we’ve encountered. Here are my favorite places from my weekend in Paris.
Paris always had a special attraction to me. Mostly because I’m obsessed with macarons, but also because (unlike most Swiss Germans) I love the French language as well as its fashion and food culture. Last June I finally got to visit Paris for the very first time. I spent three nights there with a friend. We did some sightseeing, went to Disneyland and had our taste buds blown away by the local cuisine.
Here are some of my favorite places I’ve encountered as well as some practical tips for visiting Paris.
If you’re trying to sneak in more veggies into your diet, this recipe is for you. The subtle sweetness of the bell peppers combined with the hearty meat and the oriental seasoned rice make the perfect dinner treat. Serve it with a leafy salad for some extra vitamines or enjoy them as they are.
I don’t know about you guys, but I wouldn’t survive without photo editing apps. Maybe I’m just a terrible photographer, but my unedited pictures usually look like something that wouldn’t even pass as experimental art. I’m glad there are so many nifty apps helping me making my pictures look more professional. Here are the three apps I use the most for editing my photos.
One of my favorite dishes I’ve encountered on my travels is the poké bowl. It’s a traditional Hawaiian dish usually consisting of rice, veggies and seasoned raw fish. You can get it pretty much anywhere if you happen to be in Hawaii (lucky you!). If not, go ahead and make your own. This recipe is packed with some of my favorite ingredients: salmon, mango and avocado. If you thought this triple threat makes great sushi rolls, wait until you taste this kickass bowl.
