baby kale with red beets, grapefruit and apples

by Eva Felis on October 23, 2015

The days still feel sunny and warm here in the South, but the nights are chilly and I pulled out my blankie weeks ago. The summer is officially over and ordinary lettuce doesn’t cut it anymore. With dropping temperatures a salad has to offer me more than just a “healthy” label. Lately I am really loving Weiterlesen

by Eva Felis on September 28, 2015

This cauliflower and spinach salad is not just an easy recipe that happens to be gluten free, it’s also the help you need to transition more smoothly from summer to fall.
“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall,” as F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote in The Great Gatsby. I couldn’t agree more. Weiterlesen

by Eva Felis on June 11, 2014

The dust had settled, in retrospect the renovation of my living room had been more than smooth. Gradually I am getting used to the feeling being fortune to life in a house I transformed just the way I like it: fitting to my needs and wishes. The walls between living and dinning room disappeared and Weiterlesen



bean there, done that

by Eva Felis on May 20, 2014

You know what they say: if it tastes good it’s not good for you. These days the only exceptions seams to be chocolate, I am kidding, totally not, that’s what I need to believe. Let’s say there are two exceptions that prove the rule: the delicious Mediterranean cuisine is known for colorful vegetables, lots of Weiterlesen



potato and tomato salad with gremolata dressing

by Eva Felis on May 2, 2013

Once upon a time I wished I were a princess. No never the queen, ladies with this job description have kind of a bad reputation. I guess there had been too much Grimm’s fairy stories in my early youth where the queen tent to be evil and demanding the princess’ heart. Lucky me becoming a Weiterlesen



oven salad with kale, sweet potato and brown rice

by Eva Felis on August 2, 2012

It is hot as blue blazes and my a/c is on duty nonstop and tries to keep the insight temperature at an human-appropriate level. I love my sweet treats, so I am still cranking up my oven despite the weather. I am not giving up my baking, that’s why ceiling fans are invented.
After popping cakes Weiterlesen



salmon and cucumber – the appetizer

by Eva Felis on March 20, 2012

Visiting my family in Germany itself is a happy event, the other thing is the food. I always have a long must-eat-list and a not shorter nice-to-have-list, usually I manage them both. I know in advance I have to cut back sweet treats for a while after returning home. In addition to my superb and Weiterlesen



apple cucumber salad

by Eva Felis on January 9, 2012

Usually I would have a desire for hot soup this time of the year. The calendar says it’s winter but outside it’s warm and sunny, strange weather isn’t it? Don’t get me wrong I am not complaining, love it. A couple of days ago I splurged on tea. The lady in the store told me: Weiterlesen



lentil salad with smoked almonds, sweet potato and goat cheese

by Eva Felis on January 2, 2012

I can’t believe 2011 is already gone! It was a great year and never boring: I conquered the wicked witch, moved twice into different states and made new friends (miss my old friends).
I baked countless breads, cakes and cookies, but it was also a year full of coffee, red wine, chocolate and many good dinners. Weiterlesen



roasted bell pepper salad

by Eva Felis on November 30, 2011

How could I seriously mention not to be completely in the whole Thanksgiving holiday celebration thing? Was it just because I am a newbie? Or because of my aversion to sweet potatoes with marshmallows? I herewith change my statement from my last week post and I have to tell you I am totally convinced Thanksgiving Weiterlesen
