Spring is one of my favourite seasons. I say favourite because all the seasons have something I like and I am looking forward to.

Everyone has a little bit of a child inside, and to observe the beauty out there is just rejuvenating. We feel somehow younger, healthier and prettier. Blackbirds and woodpeckers have returned once again and all the insects are awaking slowly. Trees are starting to flower.

 

Springish Food

 

Following winter and preceding summer, spring is beautiful, not only weather wise. Rather than that, spring is a true gastronomic feast.

After the season of more satisfying stews, thick soups and fulfilling desserts, I can smell freshness in the air. The freshness of young meat specials e.g. rabbits, veal, lamb. Moreover, a large variation of green and other colorful vegetables, fruits or eatable flowers. So much to work with. Lighter and fresher meals are taking over. So let's enjoy them together.

Homemade pesto, extremely healthy purple veggies, more salads and herbs. I think everyone can find his favourites. We should also not forget to treat ourselves with something sweet and yummy. Check out my list and stayed tuned for new recipes.

I don't know about you but I am always more than ready for the summer time. I cannot wait for the long days with a lot of sunshine and cooling down in lakes or the sea. But for now we have still plenty of Spring to enjoy.

The Summer is a time after the rebirth in the Spring. A time when all fruits and vegetables are fully available and when the grill can be put back on your terrace.

As my boyfriend always says: “There is nothing better than drinking some ice cold beer (Heineken in his case) during a warm and sweaty day”. The warmer days of the year help a lot of people to feel better and feel more free. Do not get me wrong, I do love the short Winter days too. Every season has it’s charm.

Quoting the author Gary Zukav:

“We cannot stop the winter or the summer from coming. We cannot stop the spring or the fall or make them other than they are. They are gifts from the universe that we cannot refuse. But we can choose what we will contribute to life when each arrives.”
