I love fall. The crisp air, the cooler temperatures and the abundance of fruits and vegetables. After all the salads and cool dishes of summer, I enjoy making the stews, roasts and comfy dishes of fall.
One of those are the pears in red wine. I love that they can be a side dish to a roast, as well as a delicious, simple but elegant dessert. They are festive and yet easy to make. What‘s not to like?
Samhain night or Halloween is a night when the veil between the worlds is The most thin, spirits are near and faeries can cross over more easily. One of the most powerful nights of the year should be celebrated with a festive and protective drink. What better then a witches brew.
The apple harvest has begun and it is time to make apple strudel again. Every time I make it, I remember watching my mom spreading out the dough really, really thin. If you did it right, the tea towel had to shine through without tearing the dough. Then she‘d brush it with butter and spread apples and cinnamon sugar and finally she rolled it up and placed it on the sheet pan. And then the whole house smelled deliciously...
If you want to make it, slightly sour apples like boscoop are best!
Golden Milk by IvyBristol, GB
Sharing my favourite hot beverage when the cold days are kicking in & I just would like to stay in bed all day for the whole winter..... the secret ingredient for surviving the cold months to come: Golden Milk!
Easy to make, convenient to have on hand, anti-inflammatory, sugar-free
& super tasty! Just boiling the spices and milk (any milk) until they will have a smooth, creamy texture. Enjoy! And share with friends.....
Spice it up - this spicy, hot fruit drink is my go to whenever a sore throat is approaching. It is very spicy, but delicious and feels like a comfy scarf from the inside. It calms the pain in my throat and makes me very warm. Perfect to snuggle on the couch and recover.
My friend gave me a recipe for spicy berry chutney and told me it disappears in minutes after opening the jar. The recipe was in German (a language I only know a few words and how to construct sentences :))) so I tried to translate it and the minute I saw the word blackberries I remembered the marvelous forest path in the mountains that we often go to on the weekends. At this time of the year it is full of blackberries and they are very juicy and fragrant.
So we went berry picking and came back with the most substantial ingredient for that chutney.
I changed the recipe a bit and here it is! It is super easy and very delicious. Enjoy!
