plum grütze with red wine

by Eva Felis on September 15, 2015

Plums have been one of my favorite fruits for ages. I grew up with two giant plum trees in my backyard and used to climb those trees like a monkey, reckless and almost likewise skilled all year long. Although this is kind of long ago, I still remember those late summers with the opulent plum Weiterlesen



marzipan budino with caramelized applesauce

by Eva Felis on February 23, 2015

Atlanta had its share of winter weather alerts and cold fronts this year. We experienced some freezing nights alternated with spring-like days. I enjoyed the few warm afternoons outside, eagerly soaking up enough sun to compensate for the rain, ice and snow. And there is one more thing that brought me through the winter, the Weiterlesen



munavalgekook – egg white cake with brown butter

by Eva Felis on April 27, 2014

I don’t know about you, but beside April being the month for the first sunburn on my nose and getting soaked to the skin during one of those rain showers, it’s also the time I start making ice cream, like it’s out of style next month. Egg whites are usually a by-product, which I don’t Weiterlesen



applesauce tiramisu

by Eva Felis on March 12, 2014

The majority of people who come into our life, don’t stay. They hang around for months or even years, until we move on or they do. They are former classmates, neighbors and coworkers. Afterwards most of them disappear from our sight. Often they don’t leave more behind than fading memories, not all of them are Weiterlesen



white chocolate macchiato cakelettes with coconut flakes

by Eva Felis on November 13, 2013

Tastewise there is a lot going on with this cakelettes. They are little bundles of flavor, no doubt about that. Nevertheless I have to admit, I went somehow overboard with this title: white chocolate macchiato cakelettes with coconut flakes.  What you read is what you get. Although all this different ingredients come together very well, Weiterlesen



peach wähe

It’s the Swiss National Day today! I have an ode to the Swiss cuisine on my mind, to tell the truth, I wished I had one. But I bet you are not honestly interested in my lyrics. You are here for the food, so am I. Swiss cuisine is so much more than fondue and Weiterlesen

First: Baked pudding will surprise you Weiterlesen



cranberry and apple tart with coconut streusel

by Eva Felis on November 17, 2012

I never got the right understanding about cranberry sauce on Thanksgiving. We never connected well. Come on it’s a berry! Although I would never put a raw cranberry in my mouth (never again, I learned it the hard way) I consider a cranberry as something sweet or at least in the category for sweet stuff. Weiterlesen



plum galette for one or maybe two

by Eva Felis on August 23, 2012

Mr. F is traveling and I am home alone. The truth is and I am just saying it: I like to be on my own once in a while. Growing up in a big family and a house equally busy like the NYC subway at rush hour crunch and with a tendency to a nut Weiterlesen



not the classic sgroppino

by Eva Felis on June 28, 2012

Some of my favorite treats evolved from traditional recipes, they are twisted and tweaked until they fit my taste buds. But most likely I simply have to change some ingredients, it’s necessary if you are for example out of caviar (happens to me all the time). And not to forget, being creative while cooking is Weiterlesen
