Nectarine Galette: a BBQ Dessert {sponsored}

Your BBQ can be used for more than just meat and veggies. You can even roast some delicious desserts like this nectarine galette. Use a pizza stone like thePizza Stone & Trayfrom Weber Grill. The roasted nectarine galette topped with sour cream ice cream is the perfect guilt free summer dessert! Are you a sweet tooth? You’re gonna love it then, I promise! JJust look how easy it is to prepare this little dessert! Don’t forget to prepare the ice cream first and heat up your BBQ with the pizza stone on it to a temperature of 240°C. The best thing is to use a gas barbecue, as you can regulate the heat with it. I use the Weber Q2200gas barbecue. Never put the stone on the grill afterwards because it may crack due to the high degree of heat difference. Recipe Inspiration Ice Cream: sour cream, Greek yoghurt, honey Short-crust pastry for 4 galettes: 170g flour (a mix of almond flour, oat flour and flaxseed flour) a pinch of sea salt 2 tbs honey …

Grilled avocado with some energizing multicolored salad {sponsored}

Have you ever tried grilled avocado? When grilled the fruits get a different taste and mixed with the grilled flavor they are really delicious! A perfectly light dinner on a hot summer day! With a roasted hazelnut topping it tastes wonderful. It’s a great idea to combine the same ingredient, like hazelnut, with more than just one component in your meal. Here, the hazelnut has been used as a salad topping as well. This way you can enjoy some nice harmony served on your plate. Barbecued potato wedges with some Merquén spices are the perfect side dish.

Guilt free starwberry tarts

Summer is a combination of sun, swimming and lots of berries. I could eat them all day long. They’re so beautiful, colorful, vitamin packed and super tasty.

zucchini pasta

Zucchini Pasta

I love to spend free days in Italy. It’s so close, there is mostly warm and sunny weather and the food…! The Italians really now how good food is made. So I love to make pasta and other Italian dishes at home – it always feels a little bit like holidays. And if time permits, i make the pasta by myself. For my zucchini pasta, I just put some zucchini noodles (also called zoodles) to the homemade spelt pasta and top it with some smooth parsley and grated parmesan or even better grated pecorino cheese. If you also like to go with homemade pasta, head over to the „Authentic Italian Pasta“ post to learn how it’s made.

homemade almond milk

Almond Milk

    Almond milk is quite a hype now a days but it is nothing new. Already in Middle Ages people loved cook with or drink almond milk. It is a plant based alternativ to cow milk. It tastes pretty good but what is all about this milk?   Almond milk is actually just made out of water and almond oil. The best almond milk is the homemade. I did not find one milk that tastes as good as homemade one and the most almond milks contains stabilizers or other thing you do not really want to consume. So how to make almond milk by yourself? INGREDIENTS: peeled and soaked almonds, water. Soak some peeled almond in cold water over night or longer. Then rinse the soaked almonds and process them with some cold water in the food processor until it get’s a creamy homogen liquid. Put a sieve over a bowl and cover it with a thin cotton towel. Now put the creamy liquid on the towel filter and drain all the liquid out of …
