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



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



sweet potato schupfnudeln with brown butter and thyme

by Eva Felis on September 27, 2012

Schupfnudeln are on my to cook list (or craving list) since weeks. They are what I would call German comfort food and usually eaten with the mostly well known sauerkraut and bacon. Another name but rather uncommon is Finger Nudeln (finger noodles). Though they are called Nudeln I would rather translate them as dumplings as 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



yellow split pea and sweet potato soup

by Eva Felis on May 15, 2012

The summer in southwest USA can be brutal, hot and humid, I had been told. It’s going to be my first summer down here and I have to admit, saying I am not a fan of this kind of weather is high understated. That’s not me complaining, not at all, since my move in December Weiterlesen



roasted veggies with browned butter

by Eva Felis on March 13, 2012

After spending a few days out of town some of you might come home with a coffee-table book from Burned Water, Arizona or Mosquito Ville, Vermont. Of cause this is the right thing to do…After a few days in Dallas I am coming back with a cauliflower and a bag full of sweet potatoes. Am 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



baked sweet potato soup with onions

by Eva Felis on February 2, 2011

Sweet potatoes? Not on my menu a couple of years ago. Besides we also had a bad start. We first met (as I remember) on a Thanksgiving dinner, the sweet potatoes had been sprinkled with brown sugar, covered with marshmallows and baked. They looked really good and I thought: “what a great dessert idea”. But Weiterlesen
