When life gives you lemons - make your own lemon jam! ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿ˜ The new KACHEN spring issue features a new series โ€“ 5 recipes for one vegetable. This time, itโ€™s turnips. Tonight I will make them wrapped in pastry and layered with lemon jam and basil. A true sensation of flavors!ย But first I needed to make lemon jam! I could go buy some, but then thereโ€™s sugar insideโ€ฆ so I just made it myself with erythritol. Only lemon was a bit too boring for me, so I added black pepper to give it a spicy touch and cardamom for some freshness. Letโ€™s see how it turns out! ;) #homemade #cooking #jam #lemon #spring #luxembourg #whenlifegivesyoulemons #foodphotography #foodstyling #instafood

Yaas!! New York cheesecake with sous-vide blood orange curd - a little something I made for my guests last Sunday ๐Ÿ˜ New York style because it's made in a bain-marie. Check out the recipe below! And you'll find the blood orange curd via the link in my bio ๐Ÿ˜‰ . Makes 1 New York style cheesecake with no crust (bain-marie method) . For the cheesecake: 500 g low-fat curd 180 g Greek yogurt 4 tbsp erythritol pinch of salt 2 tbsp flour 1/2 tsp ground vanilla 4 eggs . Preparation: 1) Preheat the oven to 160ยฐC (top/bottom heat). 2) Grease the springform pan and sprinkle with flour. 3) Place all the ingredients except the eggs in a bowl and mix until smooth. Add the eggs one at a time until well combined. 4) Pour the batter into the springform pan. Wrap the whole pan in 2-3 layers of aluminium foil reaching half way up. 5) Place the springform pan in a bigger bowl and fill up with boiling water. It should not go above the edge of the aluminium foil. 6) Cook the cheesecake for 1 hour and 45 minutes. 7) Turn off the heat and leave the door closed for another 30 minutes (the remaining steam will continue to cook the cheesecake). 8) Open the oven just a crack (you can clamp a wooden spoon in between) and let it slowly cool for 30-60 minutes. 9) Remove the cake from the bain-marie, remove the wrapping and place in the fridge for 6 hours or best over night. Just before serving, carefully remove the cake from the pan, and spread the blood orange curd on top.

As soon as the sun warms the earth enough that you can truly *smell* spring โ€“ like the smell of warmed soil โ€“ the first crocos show up. They just suddenly appear and turn the meadows into fields of purple and white. Thatโ€™s the moment to have a first glass of Corvers-Kauter wine! While sitting on the terrace for a sunbath and listening to the song of the birds..๐Ÿท๐Ÿฆ๐ŸŽถ #sunday #weekend #wine #luxembourg #crocos #spring #flowers #glassofwine #corverskauter #metime #enjoy #relax #terrace #garden #sunny #meadow #countryside

You not that song โ€œlove is in the airโ€ฆ๐ŸŽถโ€? Today I felt just like that but with spring ๐ŸŒฟMore and more birds start singing their songs๐Ÿ•Š๏ธ and the sun warms your face in the still icy cold morning. So looking forward to this season! Half a month leftโ€ฆ ;) This morning I went for an hour walk through the forest and it was just so beautiful! There are still the long winter shadows and in the early morning the colors are totally muted. I wish you a lovely Saturday!

2 years ago I made these in our old apartment. I would have never guessed to be miles away in Luxembourg two years later ;) And exactly 25 years ago I gleefully returned home from school in Boston. I had only joined the class for a very short time, but already got a few Valentine notes. I cherish this moment of kindness and love until today :) #waffles #valentineday #loveyourselfmore #love #dessert #breakfast #brunch #strawberry #blogger_lu #blogger_de #baking #dayoflove #kindness #boston

Half of the first month is already over. Do you feel like the year is already passing by too quickly? :D Then itโ€™s time to do something for yourself! Sit next to the fire, pour yourself a cup of tea, turn on some fairy lights and enjoy the cuddly feeling of winter. And while youโ€™re fully appreciating yourself and the season, try this lovely tea of almond milk with cardamom and rose water! ๐ŸŒน . _Almond Rose Tea_ Serves 1 1 cup of almond milk 4 cardamom pods 1 pitted date 2 frozen strawberries 2 tbsp almond flakes plus for decoration 1 tsp erythrit 1 - 2 tsp rose water . 1) Crush the cardamom pods and cut the date in little pieces. 2) Heat the almond milk in a pot and add the cardamom, date, frozen strawberries almond flakes and add erythrit or sugar. 3) Cook on medium heat until the strawberries are warm and the milk is steaming. Transfer into a mixer and blend until the milk turns to a hint of rose. 4) Add 1-2 tsp of rose water, stir and sprinkle a few almond flakes for decoration. . #recipe #luxembourg #selflove #loveyourselfmore #timeformyself #metime #teatime #rosewater #rosetea #almondmilk #erythritol #sugarfree #tea #recharge #regenerate #memyselfandi #sharesomelove #weekend #winter #hotbeverage #mindfulness #mindful #cozy #love #pinchoflove #rose #rosetea at Bech

2018. A year full of contradictions. From great pain, empty batteries and exclusion to rewarding creative work, highly valued colleagues, new friends and a peaceful home. It's time to celebrate, to new beginnings and an even better next year! ๐Ÿฅ‚ We have started preparing this feast since Saturday evening (the bread dough), yesterday we made the veggie broth for the soup and already mixed everything in our magic mixer. ๐Ÿœ Today I will prepare an avocado chocolate mousse ๐Ÿซ๐Ÿฅ‘ - although only my portion (the others get the classic normal one ๐Ÿ˜‰). I avoided eating any industrial sugar the whole year and instead used a bit of xylitol or erythritol when needed. For me this has been a blessing, so I will definitely stick to it.๐Ÿด I hope that all in all 2018 has been a good year for you too. Happy New Year! ๐ŸŽ‰โœจ๐Ÿฅ‚ at Bech

Have you survived the holidays?๐ŸŽ„ Make sure to get some time for yourself - by baking this yummy chocolate nut cake and enjoying every crumble of it for example ๐Ÿฐ ;) And if you're still searching for healthy New Year's resolutions๐Ÿฅ‚, consider not only your physical but also your mental well-being๐Ÿ’–. Find more space for your own happiness and really do say NO more often (how it is always recommended, but how often do we still say yes yes yes?). Do things you love, be with people that make you happy, take that nap when you need it, and here's a good one - laugh more often! ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜ #dessert #cake #chocolate #luxembourg #happyholidays #careforyourself #mindfulness #metime #selflove #selfrespect #foodphotography #nutcake #baking #homebaking #winter #mentalhealth at Bech

On the weekend my sister @fraeulein_tunichtgut came to visit and we made these wonderful apple pies! ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸToday I was in the mood for painting, and this was the result. A little art for the evening ๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ˜‰ I'm also trying a little less social media for the next months. It gave me too much pressure to post awesome things all the time ๐Ÿ˜… So instead I will use the time to do something for myself - like painting ๐ŸŒŸ #baking #sisterweekend #luxembourg #art #ipadpropainting #pies #applepie #dessert #breakfast #goodtimes #careforyourself #metime #loveyourselfmore #family #painting at Bech
