Feed your inner hippie: self-made Granola

The recipe I want to share with you today is a variation of a Granola that is served at the Tassajara Zen Mountain Center.

Passionate Baking: Millet-Chocolate-Shortbread (vegan)

Lately I’m not so much into cooking, but baking is the big thing for me. I don’t need a psychiatrist to tell me where my passion for baking comes from. I remember the moment very vividly.

Shockingly easy sunday brunch: Carrot-zucchini-bread

Cookie is my copilot – vegan thumbprints

A green love story – salad with feta dressing

As a kid I was already adventurous when it came to food. I ate more or less anything. The only thing that I didn’t like for many years was salad. To me it tasted like grass and I found it incredibly boring to eat. My grandmother was the matron of our house and she cooked … Continue reading
