cranberry-orange-cinnamon infused vodka

by Eva Felis on November 30, 2015

Yesterday was the first advent, it’s officially Christmas season! It’s the time we have to go through awkward company Christmas parties, but furthermore the time to invite family and friends and be jolly or whatever vodka does to you. For that reason I had been making infused vodka like a maniac lately.



nonni – orange liqueur and prosecco cocktail

by Eva Felis on July 20, 2015

One of Henry James’ famous quotes is: “Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.” Add “happy hour-happy hour” to this and you have my favorite idea of summer afternoons. It has become a thing around my house to have a Friday-afternoon-hell-yeah-it’s-weekend cocktail on the Weiterlesen



crema di orancello

by Eva Felis on March 4, 2014

A couple of days ago we celebrated an anniversary. It had been five years since we left Germany to life for the next three years in the USA. Life may be a journey, but the path is not a long and straight stretch of road. And I don’t mind. Wouldn’t it be tedious to have Weiterlesen



orange marzipan cake

by Eva Felis on February 18, 2014

This orange marzipan cake turned out to be striking and a good example of opposites attract. The orange segments are rather tart and lost their sweetness as expected. And that’s a good thing for the reason that this was exactly what the marzipan cake wished for. If you don’t care for oranges, try tart apples Weiterlesen



orange curd cake – like sunshine on snowy hills

by Eva Felis on December 28, 2013

I am a late summer birthday girl and can’t actually imagine, how unfair or complicated it is to have a birthday just around Christmas. I heard complains like: it’s hard to celebrate because friends and family are already busy with all this holiday stuff and a party is not as appreciated as in any other Weiterlesen



The healthy morning glory muffins

by Eva Felis on April 19, 2013

Once someone told me, if you have nothing to say at all, talk about the weather. Well I have a bucket load to talk about but the weather is the most exciting thing right now.  It’s like summer in Germany but in the South we call it spring. I am still not used to it Weiterlesen



sunshine bars

by Eva Felis on April 20, 2012

All this started with ordinary  lemon bars, I was eager to create my own recipe. Here in my casa we love them and after trying a lot of recipes and thinking: good… but… too sweet, too tart, too thin. And don’t even make me start with the crust! Just not the real deal. So I Weiterlesen



orangey sweet bread

by Eva Felis on March 29, 2012

Everyone around here love this orangey sweet bread but I have to admit, for no reason I make this recipe only from time to time, mostly because I got buttermilk around that has to be used up. And this is exactly why I made it last weekend and since then I am suffering from a Weiterlesen



flan de naranja

by Eva Felis on January 23, 2011

Lazy on a Sunday afternoon. We spend nearly the whole day at home, cozy not far away from the couch and nice food on the hand. Can it be any better than today? Outside shivering -7 C / 20 F with grey clouds, inside cloudy sofa cushion and coziness. And of course NFL playoffs are Weiterlesen

I know many of you are already done with Christmas cookies baking, but make an exception for this guys. No I am not insane these are not chocolate covered french fries. Although I am not sure about this one…?
How I get the idea of making this goodies? Well, long story short: we got adopted by Weiterlesen
