Risotto with peas, broad beans and asparagus

Risotto with peas, broad beans and asparagus

Risotto with peas, broad beans and green asparagus actually is a typical spring recipe. I created this in the spring when all these vegetables where in season and available at the farmers market. I just never got round to post it on the blog. As I was looking at what to cook this week, I came across my notes for this lovely risotto. I realised that apart from the asparagus this might just as well work in the autumn. The…

One-tray recipe: Salmon and leek

One-tray recipe: Salmon and leek

Avoid too much washing up One-tray recipes like this salmon and leek one are just the best for busy weeknights. I love cooking and baking as you know, but about every other day, I regret all my enthusiasm as soon as there is another pile of washing up to do. I ask myself: Again!? Really? Why exactly did I have to do this? Why couldn’t I just get some of it in the shop earlier?? I usually do remember when and…

Tortilla pizza with figs and feta

Food Photography Finally a new recipe on the blog! I have been working hard on my food photography skills lately. Practice makes perfect they say, so that is what I have been doing, practice, practice and practice some more. Funnily enough that doesn’t make it easier nor quicker. I can easily spend a good few hours on a photo now. Hence, not much activity on my blog lately. Follow

Salad for kids: Strawberries and Lamb Lettuce

. Salad for kids – it isn’t always the most obvious choice, but when it works, it is just brilliant: It is usually fairly quick and easy to make. It often doesn’t require any cooking. You can sometimes use up leftovers out of the fridge Then we didn’t even mention the density of nutritional goodness in it! What is in it?

How kids can make their own lemonade

How kids can make their own lemonade

This is a recipe written for kids to make. Lemonade is so very refreshing on warm summer days, don’t you think? The downside is the amount of sugar that goes in.  That is why it totally benefits from making your own, because you can limit the amount of sugar you want.  Only use just enough for your taste. Usually that is just a fraction of what the shop bought lemonade would have in it. Follow
