We don’t talk about calories. Never.
We are non-professionals managing recipes & food preparation our way to get quick & foolproof results.
All recipes & photos in this food blog are real.
We like vegetables.
If we can produce 6 servings instead of 2 (which we need at the moment) we always go for 6 servings & freeze any leftovers for later: it’s efficient – no significant changes in preparation & cleaning time.
We don’t need to produce everything from scratch: there are many convenience products of excellent quality in our trusted food store.
We’ll never have enough time off to spend up to 2 days (or even more) in our kitchen to prepare lots of food for an upcoming family & friends get-together at our home. We rely on a renowned catering service or create a buffet by intensive help of an exquisite deli.
We don’t invent any new food combinations just to impress.
We are not afraid to simplify recipes & processes. Never.
If some ingredients happen not to be around – just substitute.
Food Shopping: Keep it simple & be flexible. Always.
(If we cannot lay our hands on any fresh Italian tomatoes in our trusted food store we rely on canned Italian tomatoes – instead of raiding 2-3 more food stores!).
We are absolute fans of one-stop-shopping (time saving).
Pantry: Keep it simple & be flexible. Always.
(If there aren’t any spaghetti in our kitchen cabinet we use macaroni instead!).
We don’t allow leftovers to clutter our pantry!
We don’t fall in love w/ impressive kitchen equipment we won’t really need …
