Summer Berry Bircher Müsli

I was recently working in the offices of a newspaper that had a staff canteen. As well as lunch, they also served breakfast which is a great thing, when you’re running a little late in the morning and don’t have time to make any food, which, of course, never happens to me… It’s can be […]

Valentine’s Fromage Frais Waffles

  Happy Valentine’s Day… To be honest, I’m actually not much of a Valentine’s Day fan. Having grown up in Germany when it wasn’t yet a thing over there I can still happily do without the rather commercial fuss.  But I decided to use today’s date as an excuse for a breakfast of heart-shaped waffles in […]

Figs with Quark

  Now that it’s summer, even I can’t always have sweet cakes for brunch and breakfast. Baking is also not that great an idea if the apartment is already heated up through the sun… If it’s warm I feel like something lighter instead, something without the carbs and without cream or butter as cutting the calories a […]

Grilled Apricots with Ricotta

We’re definitely at the very end of summer now but here is one last summery post, featuring those sweet, end of the summer apricots that you should hopefully still be able to get hold of right now. These ricotta topped, grilled apricots are so delicious and, at the same time, so easy to make. The […]
