Quiche Lorraine

Can we just agree to call this Quiche Lauren if it comes from my kitchen? Thought so, thank you. In the (never ending) recent lock down of Switzerland, I have made myself a calendar of classic recipes to try that I’ve not previously- and walks to take in new places – not difficult in a…

Ina’s Roasted Veggie Frittata

With five (known) weekends of lock down in sight, I’ve put together a calendar of new walks to take and classic recipes to master or cook for the very first time. Cooking in a small space, in Celsius, with grocery stores that are mostly like those of the US, until you’re planning a recipe and…

Spinach Ricotta Brunch Bake

Family Christmas typically comes with a plate of infamous egg casserole, some love it, others, not so much. This year, our lean squad was traumatized by an abundance of croutons thanks to some belated Thanksgiving stuffing and decided to forgo the bread laden egg casserole. So, we tried a new, but still not-so-light breakfast bake…

Birthday Brunch at The Living Room

My dear friend hosted me for a wee birthday brunch at The Living Room restaurant in The Ritz Carlton in central Geneva. Waiting for her in the lobby was an absolute delight as I was taken with both the modernly elegant chandelier and shabby-chic, yet ever so cool Christmas tree. The Living Room was also…

Max – Geneva

If you’re looking for a cute weekend brunch spot, Max in Eaux Vives is an easy choice, just be sure to book ahead for its tiny interior. The tables were really well spaced for Covid and one board of a menu ensured that you couldn’t read it at a distance, but that you certainly didn’t…

The Fluffiest of Omelettes

Need something to impress your luvah (orrrrrrr just yourself) and have nothing in the fridge? Thought so. I imagine that’s why Gaby whipped up this insanely gorgeous, impressive, and oddly simple recipe just for the occasion of Sunday morning luvah-land. Gaby’s Omelette Edit 3 large eggs, separated 1 T. parmesan Salt & pepper 1 T….

Third Place Recipe of Quarantine: Teigan’s Parmesan Waffles

It’s Sunday morning, and if you aren’t immediately heading to your kitchen to whip of the third place recipe of quarantine, are you even living? Holy hell, these are incredible and not all that carb heavy. The parmesan brings a umami quality that I cannot even explain. Your kitchen smells incredible and after you eat…

Coconut Flour Banana Bread

When you’re slowly cleaning out your pantry to get ready to move a casual 5,000 miles across the globe, and find that you have an abundance of weird ingredients that won’t make the cut- you’d better use them now. This weekend I decided to tackle the bag of coconut flour that had been lurking among…

Chalet d’Adrien

While La Grange was less than impressive for my first Verbier meal, the next day brought me to Le Chalet d’Adrien. The chalet is perched up just a quick 10 minute walk up the mountain from the main street in town. The exercise was nice and the view was gorgeous on a Sunday morning heading…

Jalapeño Popper Eggs

Pop this in your mouth! Just your mouth. Only your mouth. Don’t touch your eyes, nose, open cuts, or netherlands for days after prepping this. I won’t share which combination of mistakes I made with this…. I do not know what on earth happened, but I purchases either the hottest batch of jalapenos or perhaps,…

Green Eggs and Ham – aka the recipe for Arugula Pesto

Just in time for St. Pat’s, or Dr. Seuss Week…I understand that is a thing…? Here is a very festive way to clean out your fridge – a green eggs and ham egg bake. First, you’re going to take that bag of arugula that you bought a week ago and didn’t really touch and turn…

Funk Food: Sweet Potato Muffins

After my weekend of experiments with mashed sweet potatoes, I didn’t know what to do with all of the leftovers…and there were quite a few! I came across this recipe on Pinterest for “muffins” made of mashed sweet potato. They looked lovely, but after they came out of the oven, I wasn’t totally bowled over…
