I am by now out and about on my way to go brunching with a dear old friend but of course I do have a delicious treat for you – in fact I have two.
Who else doesn´t love side dishes ? In fact I love them more than my main dish at 90 % of the time so I love to try out new ones and if they are delicious there is nothing better than sharing with you guys. But for today I have not only one, but two great sides.
– purple onion
– feta or mozzarella cheese
– olive oil
White Bean Mash
– a can of white beans
– cottage cheese
– red pesto
– parsley and chick peas to garnish
– salt and pepper for seasoning
Both are quick and easy made. Each is under 10 minutes , I promise. Just throw eyerything together and enjoy. If you are planning on making one or both let me know or tag me.
I haven´t posted a Food Friday post in a long time and I really don´t know exactly why. The last couple of weeks were really hard for me in terms of finding delicious meals to cook cause it was just to hot for me and I am not hungry at all with these temperatures so I made my usual meals and tried nothing new. But then my Crockpot arrived from the amazon Prime Days and the temps also dropped so I got back my sense and happiness for cooking and saved so many new recipes I wanted to try. Absolutely going to write a full review on my Crockpot but that is another post.
Anyways since this pie is no Crockpot recipe it is a total different theme here today. I am a lover of all things pie. In my opinion these are the most versatile cakes. Just fill your crispy pie crust with whatever you crave that day. For me it was a simple but also as delicious buttermilk pie. We love a gooey cake at the Reisinger house so this was so perfect and also tasted super fresh for summer time.
I got the recipe from the Southern Living blog and you can view it here. They also share the story about this totally underrated pie we love so much. Definitely going to make this pie again.

Wishing you a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by.
I am checking in with one quick and easy but oh so delicious recipe today. I love it this much I already made it twice in the same week. We are talking about spinach mozarella spaghetti.
The recipe itself is super easy and you can adjust it as you like it cause I always put some spicy seasonning into the sauce to make the most out of this simple dish.
So these are the ingredients you need and I bet most of them are ones which already sit in your pantry and wait to be used.
– spelled spaghetti (you can also use normal ones)
– frozen spinach (about 1 1/2 cup but in fact you can use as much as you like)
– 2 cans of diced tomatoes
– 1 cup of heavy cream
– seasonings (salt, pepper, tomato seasoning and some chili flakes)
– mozzarella (dice it yourself or use the mini mozzarella balls)
– basil leaves to garnish you dish
– cook the noodles al dente
– make your sauce by putting the diced tomatoes, the heavy cream, the seasonings and the spinach into a pan and heat it up, stir ocassionally and taste to make sure you have seasoned right, I would start with a half taplespoon of each
– serve on a nice spaghetti plate and garnish with the diced mozzarella pieces and some fresh green basil leaves
This recipe make a super easy weekday dish. It is done in under 20 minutes and tastes great. You can also double the ingredients to have enough leftovers for the next day.
I am wishing everyone a great weekend and if you are looking for more recipe ideas check out my recipe tab.
today´s topic is eating and drinking at Lake Garda and which places we tried and loved. I have already shared our day in Verona here and I am sharing a summary of our whole stay next week. But you can always have a look at my travel tab too if you are interested in other places we have been to.
Lake Garda is surrounded by several small cities we have mostly visited during our last stays so we know already where to go to lunch and dinner and what we like and what not. So for today´s post I am sharing some of our favorites and also recently discovered ones. This was the first time we haven´t had breakfast at our accommodation so we also ate breakfast someplace else everyday.
I am gonna split it up by cities so you can have a look at which one you are close or which one you want to visit.
Peschiera del Garda:
Opening hours: 6:30 am to 23 pm
Best breakfast spot we could find. We had the pancakes with Nutella and the bacon and eggs. Both tasted delicious and we ate every last crumb. They also have fresh pressed juice and avocado toast. Definitely coming back next time. Also how gorgeous are the big dog statues. Adorable.
Opening hours: 8 am to 11 pm
We had the brioche (filled croissants)/orange juice/coffee and the scrambled eggs, bacon/orange juice/coffee menu.
Lunch / Dinner:
Restaurant Bella Vista
Opening hours: 12 am to 3 pm / 6 pm to 11 pm
I had the tuna steak with spinach as a side and Florian had the Gnocchi. Both dishes tasted absuletly delicious. We had been last year too and it was great too. Worth a visit.
Lido Mirabello Beach
Opening hours: 9 am to 9 pm
We had a piece of apple cake and a ham and cheese toast. They don´t offer real breakfast so this would be everything you can get but the view is amazing.
Lunch / Dinner:
10 am to 12 pm
I had the tagliatelle with chanterelles and Florian had a pizza. Both was delicious and the house wine (white) tastes great too.
Sportsmann-Ceola (between Garda and Bardolino on the promenade):
Lunch / Dinner:
Torre al Casello
Opening hours: 9 am to 11:30 pm
We love to come here immediately after we have arrived at the Lake. It is the perfect first meal with the best view. The prices are almost cheap and the service and food is great.
Lunch / Dinner:
Opening hours: 8 am to 12 pm
One of our favorite spots we always have dinner. I had the sphaghetti bolognese and Florian the tagliatelle with chanterelles. For desert I ordered my absolute favorite and it didn´t disappoint – crema catalana. So delicious. You have to try it. Florian took the surprise desert and it came with the best and most flavourful pistacchio ice cream I have ever tasted.
Lunch / Dinner:
Opening hours: 7 am to 12 pm
We have been here last year and had great memories but this year the food wasn´t that good. I had the tuna salad and the lettuce was very bitter and hard at times. Florian had the spaghetti and said they were okay. Overall you have a great view and the staff is very nice and quick but the food did not convince me this year.
This have been all the restaurants we have been to during this visit. If you are visiting one make sure to tag me in your story or just comment on my Instagram or blog post.
As always thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.
