Chocolate Cupcakes

I don't care for Valentine's Day at all. But since I knew I'd be given something I felt obliged to have something on my hands aswell and whipped up the Basic Chocolate cupcakes from VCTOTW.



Threw in some mixed frozen berries and they were devoured by happy people! =)

Clean-out-fridge-lentil-soup

Since it's still freezingly cold here I've been cooking soup non-stop. And that always comes in handy when one's trying to use up whatever there is left in the fridge.



I threw together broccoli, bell pepper, carrots, onions, garlic, canned tomatoes and lentils and 45 minutes later enjoyed hot soup with chicorée leafs for spooning.

Now I feel like having hot chocolate and some of Katie's fudge babies. But I'm out of milk and nuts and pretty much everything else I'm craving at the moment. If I run to the supermarket, can I count that as my exercise for today? =p

When in doubt, make curry!

I believe we've all had those days where we just couldn't decide on what we felt like eating. So many possibilities, yet none of them convinced you really. I had that a couple of days back and decided you can never go wrong with Thai Curry.

So I cooked some spinach linguine and whipped up a curry sorta thing with broccoli (I could live off that alone, my ever favorite vegetable to eat), bell pepper, onions, coconut milk, green + yellow curry paste, curry and ginger powder and some pepper. On top of it I threw some mixed salad and cherry tomatoes.



And last night I had a salad that I topped of with coleslaw and mungbean sprouts. I forgot how much I love coleslaw. Can you blame me? I'm German... we don't get called "Krauts" for no reason =p



It's been so long since I updated this blog... I'll try to whip out my camera more often and revive this thing a bit.

Raw Cheesecake

I made this for my mom's birthday and she has been raving aout it ever since. Ha ha, I love how I can get out of stressing over what to buy someone as a gift by simply baking - or in this case freezing - a cake.



She even bought the ingredients to make it herself next time. After the birthday brunch I was left with three notes of her friends asking for the recipe. I used this one.



On Thursday I'll finally have my written exam. Oh the weight that's gonna fall off my shoulders...

La Mano Verde - Organic Gourmet Cuisine




This is a 100% organic vegan restaurant (with raw&gluten-free options) around my corner which I highly suggest you to pay a visit should you be in Berlin for whatever reason!
Hey, even Woody Harrelson & Ben Foster were there.

The first time I went there I almost fainted from all the goodness and was close to dropping down on my knees in front of the cook and praise him =p
Whenever I have extra money to spare I stop by and pretty much order the same things every time. The Curry or the raw Red Beet Ravioli. Just writing this makes me want to go over there immediately =p



The first (and only) time I've had vegan cheese that was actually melted

Raw Red Beet Ravioli with Fennel Salad & dried Figs

Salad and fruity treats.

It's been friggin cold here lately and there was a snow storm today, so I've been craving and eating lots of soup lately and the only raw things consumed were apples and some salads. Here are a few from a couple of days back though.

Lamb's lettuce, red cabbage, zucchini & tomatoes with green olive tapenade and lots of chives and basil.



Banana, pear, raspberries & a date (gotta get more of those soon, I'm hooked) sprinkled with shredded coconut.



Blueberry-Banana Ice Cream (1/2 frozen, 1/2 fresh, 1/3 cup frozen blueberries) with a pear. This stuff is brilliant, even better than the raspberry one due to no annoying seeds being stuck between your teeth ;)



Well, back to hitting the books. Or should I say book, only 1/4th through the 500-pages one. We finally got the topics for the final exam though, so now I don't have any justification for procastination =p

Raw Eats

I've decided to eat more raw instead of having PBJ sandwiches all the time.



Banana sprinkled with cinnamon in romaine leafs along with dates & red grapes.



Yes, the penis was intentional. =p



Mixed salad with tomatoes, cucumber, bell pepper and ABM-dressing.



Breakfast this morning was half an orange and for lunch I made a salad which I couldn't even finish.
Mixed salad with yellow bell pepper, fennel, red cabbage, tomatoes, zucchini, broccoli, red grapes, ABM-dressing and raisins.



ABM-dressing
1 small apple, cored and diced
1/4 banana
1/4 cup mango
dash cinnamon

blend until creamy
