Delicious Kale Salad for Summer

Happy Friday!

Finally I am back to my blog after a few weeks, I have missed all of you here. Life has been good but I had to take some time for some other projects I have been working on and I did travel a fair share as well in the last few weeks.

It is already August and it is hot in LA, which I actually love and I thought today I am sharing my delicious Kale Salad with you I made yesterday for lunch. It is healthy, yummy and super easy to do.

Here is what you need (for 2 people):

1 package fresh Kale Salad (Trader Joe’s – Organic)

2 Eggs

1 cup of Quinoa

1 Pear

Olive Oil

Balsamic Vinegar

Salt, Pepper

1/2 teaspoon Raw Brown Sugar

Wash the Kale Salad and the Pear and chop them into small pieces. (I always wash the salad – even if the package says pre-washed and ready to eat)

Put the eggs into cool water and bring them to a boil for 2 – 3 Minutes to get them to be perfectly Medium – Boiled. When finished, rinse them under cold water and peel them.

Add 1 cup of Quinoa and 2 cups of water into a saucepan without cover and bring it to a simmer until the water is absorbed.

Add the chopped Kale, Pear and Quinoa into a salad bowl. Drizzle Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar over it, add Salt, Pepper and Brown Sugar and mix everything through.

Serve the Salad and cut the eggs in halves and put them on top of the salad.

Voila – Lunch at BB’s is served. Enjoy!

What have you been up to? Let me know and I would love to hear about your favorite summer – lunch recipes!

Lavender-Honey Ice Cream

Dress: BCBG(old) – similar styles here, here and here

Let’s brighten up this gloomy week with some delicious ice cream. My Favorite flavor right now is Honey-Lavender. The best one I found at Jeni’s in Calabasas, it is sooo good. I always loved ice cream and sometimes I skip lunch or dinner and have just ice cream instead… the BEST!

I found a recipe for my favorite flavor this summer. Independence Day is coming up soon and this would make the perfect desert for family and friends.

Here is what you need (makes 6 – 8 scoops)

  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 cups whole or 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons dried culinary lavender

Add the heavy cream, milk, honey and lavender to a medium saucepan set over medium heat. Bring the mixture to steaming. Stir occasionally.

Check to see that the honey is completely dissolved into the cream and then remove the pan from the heat. Allow it to rest at room temperature for 15 minutes. Using a ​fine-mesh sieve, strain the lavender cream and discard the solids. Chill the mixture for 1 hour and then freeze it in an ice-cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Voila – that’s it. So easy and sooo good! Let me know how it turned out!

Beautiful Mountains

Happy Thursday!

I decided to stay longer in Austria to spend some more time with my family. Yesterday was the first beautiful and sunny day. It was the perfect time to enjoy the beautiful mountains.

I don’t have any skiing clothes – and no snow gear since I live in LA. So I raided my mom’s closet for today. But I did get inspired to get my own again and I put together a look book for you. Here are some super cute items I am already obsessing over.

Winter is coming to an end and today is the first day of spring. This is a great time to get a steal for the next winter and snow season.

Thank you so much for visiting me here,
