braised celery

by Eva Felis on January 5, 2016

Celery stalks have the supporting role in many dishes, only once in a blue moon they play the lead role. Many recipes call for one or two stalks of celery and the rest of the bunch is just going to wilt in the fridge. I needed a go-to recipe to prevent those stalks from fading Weiterlesen

sweet potato and peanut stew with kale

by Eva Felis on November 5, 2015

It rained all day last Sunday. It was cold, dark and unpleasant outside. I loved it! We cozied up together on the couch and sipped on hot chocolate laced with dark rum. It was my turn to pick a movie from my infinite list and I chose Hector and the Search for Happiness. At first Weiterlesen



roasted cauliflower with whipped feta-tomato dip

by Eva Felis on November 3, 2015

I am a dip and smear person, lover of hummus, guacamole, salsa and aioli – you name it. Unfortunately the vessels to transport these sauces into my mouth, are for the most part unhealthy pita chips (yum), nachos (also yum) and in best cases baby carrots (healthy but…). The plan behind my roasted cauliflower with Weiterlesen

by Eva Felis on October 27, 2015

It seams like there is a new restaurant opening in Atlanta every other day. On the other hand, some are also shutting their doors for good.

by Eva Felis on March 8, 2015

My mum never insisted on me eating my vegetables. Although she made sure that I eat something at all, it was always up to me what I put on my plate. This might give you the idea I grew up on chocolate and spaghetti, but it wasn’t like that at least most of the time. Weiterlesen



kung pao brussels sprouts

by Eva Felis on February 11, 2015

I can’t believe it’s already two years ago since I moved to Atlanta. It gladdens me that it feels like home to me by now. One of the first things I learned is, Southerners are big in eating and enjoying good food. Restaurants are on every corner, new ones seem to pop up every week Weiterlesen



lemony red beet and sweet potato soup

by Eva Felis on January 22, 2015

You can’t beat a bowl of hot soup on a cold winter’s day. That’s what they say. Although only the calendar says it’s winter, yet it’s feels like spring in Atlanta these days. I’ll take it and this soup too. If red velvet cake would be a soup, it would be this lemony red beet Weiterlesen
