feta & tomatoes

The 1st step … The Businesswoman’s Kitchen has got a new look! It took me some weeks thinking about a new look, designing some new look, looking for a solution – i. e. a new theme – and finally plunging into the cold water by applying it. Of course I’m not finished with anything … there remains a lot of fine tuning – even maybe some major adjustments. So be surprised what happens during the…

a big potato salad w/ mediterranean touch

Is there any surprise in a potato salad? Yes: you may add Mediterranean herbs for a delicious summer & holiday flavour … Some years ago I made this potato salad rather spontaneously because suddenly all the rainy weather in Germany cleared up & sun came back w/ fine temperatures fit for some last BBQ events in the garden. … & a real bit potato salad is always one of the best companions around (together w/…

montpellier & pasta salad

When we started our trip to Southern France, end of 2022, we made a stop-over in Montpellier. If you like details: we arrived in the afternoon of 30th of December, stayed in Montpellier for New Year’s Eve and restarted to Carcassone on 1st of January. I remember that it was rather cold and rainy … except of New Year’s Day when suddenly the sun appeared on a blue sky. We then enjoyed a lazy coffee…

For the record:My better half & I are no explicit friends of store-bought deep-frozen pizza. We never store a supply in our freezer. If there is a specific irresistible craving for pizza we either go to our trusted pizzeria in the neighborhood which serves excellent pizza – not only in the restaurant, but also…

more sandwich: pan-fried tuna mozzarella melt

Dieser Beitrag enthält Werbung – advertising.   I’m somehow obsessed w/ sandwiches. Nothing changed so far. Maybe it’s a by-product of Corona Times. Working in home office, no canteen, no lunch meetings in cafés or so … all is homebound, all meals are at home. So what to cook each day? A sandwich seems a fine idea. If you use a substantial bread, thick & big slices, adding substantial ingredients … & it’s an easy…

baked vegetables & an open sandwich

Dieser Beitrag enthält Werbung – advertising.   This is the destiny of an open sandwich. On one side there is the bread, on the other side there is a crisp lettuce leave – both encapsulating the inner delicacies of baked vegetables, baked eggs, melted pecorino, crisp arugula in a soft yoghurt cream! At the beginning …     … there was this open sandwich where the bread & the yoghurt cream & the arugula is…
