One of the best things that can happen to an egg is Pavlova. The other is pudding. The beautiful, delicate Pavlova bears the name of the Russian ballet dancer Anna Pavlova. It is crunchy outside and soft inside. Every bite is a dream.
This is a traditional French cake originating from Brittany in France. Usually baked with prunes, but I also like to add a handful of raisins in the batter.
Quiche Lorraine is probably the most famous French pastry in the world. It’s filled with crispy bacon, onions, and cheese. What’s not to like!
Whenever I want to pamper my family with a nice Sunday breakfast, I opt for pancakes. Because everybody likes pancakes. This time I chose an autumn version with plums and walnut, seasoned with cinnamon.
My typical day starts with a porridge. The colder the weather gets, the spicer I make it. I especially like to add fruit to it and the caramelized pear was the right choice to go with this cinnamon and ginger-spiced porridge. Happy International porridge day!
Chickpeas have a special place in my heart. For example, I prefer the spicy falafel to any kind of meat. Chickpeas are a great source of protein. This time instead of using whole wheat flour, I used chickpea flour to make wraps. I filled it with grilled veggies and spicy yogurt, but you can serve it with just about anything.

Finally, the pumpkin season is here. I’m a big fan of these orange beauties. You will see many pumpkin dishes from me this month. I love all kinds of pasty with pumpkin, but this galette is one of my favourite from all. It is deliciously spicy from the Harissa, and the Nigella seeds add something special to the taste. Perfect for Meatless Mondays.
A mousse is always a good idea. I’m a big fan of the dark chocolate mousse, but you can not beat a good old coffee mousse. It is a nice change from time to time.
