Ground Turkey and Mushroom-Pine Nuts

Ground Turkey Couscous & Mushrooms with Pine Nuts In lieu of my usually horridly unhealthy baking post of the week, I though I’d share with you two of my more recent weekly dinner meals. Normally I try to aim for something mildly healthy – with a good mix of starch, vegetables and protein. The first…

Double Whammy: Chicken and Lamb Skewers

Like it says in the description… this is a double whammy. Last weekend, I had the one of my favorite pleasures: cooking with my cousin up in New York. We always have such a lovely time together that when we add cooking (and he’s a pro-chef, so we always do) – I can barely wait…

Stirfry Lunch

Admittedly, I’ve been complaining to people about being home. It’s not as though I don’t love being around friends and family, but my heart is just yearning to return to Berlin and back to the life that I started to build. That being said, there are some things that I absolutely love about being home…

Stovetop Garlic-Tomato Chicken

Chicken should be hailed potentially the best meat to cook with, if you haven’t cooked meat in months. That would be my issue. Living with a vegan for the past five months has certainly opened my eyes (rather forcefully) to the great options for vegetarians and cooking. There’s nothing I’d rather do now than do…

Homesick Cure Frittata

My childhood is formed by memories of cooking frittatas. Every Sunday, my dad and I would arrive in the kitchen, pajama-ready and bed-head prepared to cook out two 12-egg frittatas for the week. He would aim to be healthy and use only egg-whites and smoked salmon, choosing to be light on butter and skimp on…

Peaches and Bananas Covered in Chocolate

Recipe: Peaches and Bananas Covered in Chocolate Ingredients 1 peach, cored and sliced 1 banana, sliced Dollops and honey and coconut oil (or just normal oil) 2 squares of milk chocolate baking chocolate Chopped walnuts If you’re wondering whether this recipe is as simple as it sounds, you are not incorrect. Sometimes, we all have…

Roasted Radishes

Roasted Radishes Recipe Ingredients: Bunch of radishes Walnuts, crushed White onion, diced 2 cloves garlic, minced 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper and paprika Something left over in the freezer…? I may have a slight tendency to lose my focus at work and go on The Kitchn maybe once every two hours… or hour. It was on…

Chickpea Zucchini Semi-Frittata

Recipe: Chickpea-Zucchini Semi Frittata Ingredients: 1 can of chickpeas 1 zucchini, diced up 1 red onion, minced 2 eggs 2 heaping tbsp flour 1 clove garlic, minced salt and pepper to season Let me admit that this recipe only happened because my original plan for zucchini-chickpea fritters failed tragically. Apparently, chickpeas are not so easy…

Weeknight Vegetarian Pasta

Weeknight Vegetarian Pasta Ingredients: 50-100g whole wheat penne pasta 1 onion, diced 3 cloves of garlic, minced 80-100g of peas 1/4 head of cauliflower 1 veggie burger, sliced 1 cup chopped broccolini 4 tomatoes, diced Optional spicing (Coriander, Paprika, Cheese…) Note: I like to think of this as a kitchen-sink style dish. Normally, I wouldn’t…

Roasted Peaches and Yogurt

Roasted Peaches and Yogurt: The Recipe Ingredients: 2 peaches (the closer to ripe, the better) Some white wine (your preference) Nutmeg Cinnamon Butter Honey (Raw is better) Lime Juice/Zest Yogurt or something creamy Note: This recipe is incredibly easy and insanely delicious and I’m warning you now that you will probably eat a whole batch…

Successful Adulting

As of last week, I feel like I have finally learned a little more about “adulting,” in small quantities at least. I didn’t write my usual weekly post last week, mostly because nothing at all happened that could have made for interesting reading. My job is *eh* fun, but I can’t write about the different…

Laksa, Salaman Rushdie and Berlin

I wouldn’t use the word momentous┬áto describe this week necessarily, but I almost want to throw it out there, because this week was one of the better ones since arriving in Germany. Living abroad, while having its incredible perks, I have found can be incredibly isolating and lonely. This isn’t to say I don’t go…
