Breakfast in bed? I might just do that tomorrow morning and have my overnight cherry oats with a cup of coffee πŸ’› Because I do it like @shisodelicious did it earlier this month and have a whole birthday week πŸ™ˆ And that means breakfast in bed all week is totally okay. It was my birthday yesterday but I didn’t do much really except for getting excited for our long weekend getaway to Italy πŸ’› We’ll be flying out tomorrow and visiting Bologna, Florence and the coast. So if you do have any delicious or wonderful recommendations, please share those in the comments below ✨ . . . . . #bhgfood #tastespotting #plantstrong #pgminseason #wholesome #healthyliving #sugarfree #vegan #veganfoodporn #veganfoodlovers #veganfoodshare #vegantreats #plantbased #plantfueled #diaryfree #lifeandthyme #cntravelereats #eattheworld #foodandwine #stilllife #appetitejournal #autumnvibes #proventiallife #bbcgoodfood # #foodphotographer #myopenkitchen #theartofslowliving #seekthesimplicity at Istanbul, Turkey

Almost Vegan Plum Cake with Honey and Black Pepper ✨ The recipe is now on the blog. I also included a vegan substitute for the honey. As I mentioned before, it's important to buy local honey from an ethical and sustainable bee keeper. But if you still want to go all vegan, I also think that swapping honey just with some sweet syrup, doesn't do it justice either. I did some research and it seems that light-colored agave nectar comes closest to the taste of honey. What are your favorite vegan honey alternatives? . . . . . . #letmeeatcake #letscookvegan #gatheringslikethese #lifeandthyme #vzcomade #feedfeed #f52grams #vegan #kitchenbowl #wholefoods #TCMlivingwell #eeeeeats #thekitchn #ourplatesdaily #realfood #heresmyfood #hautecuisines #huffposttaste #thechalkboardeats #thatsdarling #foods4thought #bestfoodworld #istanbul #saveur #beautifulcuisines #foodandwine #whatveganseat #eattheworld at Istanbul, Turkey

Italian Comfort Food: Pasta e Fagioli ✨ Often times when we feel down or have a bad day or week, we crave comfort food, right?! I certainly do. But sometimes food won't do it anymore. Sometimes food is not enough to cure my inner restlessness, worries or discontent. Then I need to get to one of my comfort places. When I'm abroad for a very long time or have travelled a lot, I miss my home a lot because it's one of my comfort zones. But there are times when my home can't give me all the comfort I need. It doesn't have much to do with my home itself but more with the environment it's located in. Istanbul is a very busy and overwhelming city. Even though I feel calm at home, it happens that there are periods when I feel stressed out the second I step on the street. And there is only so much time you can spend inside all day. So when I reach one of those days again, I crave my comfort place(s). It's usually countries or cities I've visited many times and feel almost at home, either because of the people that live there or because the culture feels so familiar and relaxing. One of those places is London. When I visited last weekend I came back home all energized and happy. I had eaten some great food, met with friends and simply enjoyed the city's lifestyle. Other comfort places in Europe are Paris and France in general, Amsterdam and Italy. Surprisingly Germany is not among them, I actually feel a little out of my comfort zone when I travel back home πŸ™ˆπŸ˜„What is/are your comfort place(s)? . . . . . . #lifeandthyme #cntravelereats #eattheworld #makeitdelicious #appetitejournal #tablesituation #vzcomade #inspiremyinstagram #simplepleasures #untoldvisuals #gatheringslikethese #kinfolklife #myopenkitchen #hautecuisines #smallthings #thelifestylecollective #simplethingsmadebeautiful #thehappynow #mycommontable #huffposttaste #beautifulcuisines #gatheredstyle #click_vision #goop #scrumptiouskitchen #heresmyfood #saveur #f52grams at Istanbul, Turkey

Cardamom Pumpkin Porridge with Pears, Macadamia Nuts and a drizzle of Maple Syrup ✨ This was the first time I tried pumpkin for breakfast and really loved it. I think it was only last year that I had sweet pumpkin for the first time. Before I only knew it as a savory vegetables in soups and stews. But in Turkey they serve candied pumpkin with cream and walnuts as dessert and this has become one of my favorite seasonal sweet treats here in Istanbul (that and poached quince with syrup, cloves and cream). Fanny of @fannythefoodie did a pumpkin smoothie bowl the other day, so that will be my next pumpkin experiment πŸ˜„ Btw, I made this porridge the evening before I left to London, to have it for breakfast on the plane. While all the other passengers ate their mushy scrambled "eggs", I enjoyed my fancy pumpkin oats πŸ™ˆ Do you have a favorite sweet recipe featuring pumpkin? . . . . . . #vegan #tcmlivingwell #eattherainbow #cleaneats #bloglovin #eeeeeats #istanbul #thechalkboardeats #food4thought #foodblogger #vegansofig #seasonalfood #bevisuallyinspired #documentyourdays #foodie_feature #foods4thought #realfood #kitchenbowl #thekitchn #bestofvegan #onthetable #letscookvegan #autumnvibes #wholefoods #slowmorning #foodphotographer #gloobyfood #saveur #whatveganseat at Istanbul, Turkey

White Chocolate Hazelnut Cookie Cake with Macadamia Nuts, toasted Coconut Chips and Coconut Cream ✨ I'm a gatherer. I collect flowers, stones and leaves. Sometimes I keep them, sometimes I give everything back to nature. I just like the process of finding the most beautiful stone at the beach, a magically colored leave in the park or the perfectly round chestnut in the forest. I don't need to keep these little treasures, I'm just happy I found them. I also like to collect recipes. Again I don't bookmark anything or keep recipes in a folder. I just like reading them. And sometimes I remember that I had seen a recipe that I really liked. Like today. When I was craving something sweet but didn't want to make a traditional cake. Then I remembered the cookie cake recipe by @_faringwell πŸ’›Lesson learned: Good things happen to gatherers πŸ˜‹ . . . . . . #lifeandthyme #eattheworld #cntravelereats #foodandwine #makeitdelicious #vzcomade #appetitejournal #gatheringslikethese #simplepleasures #inspiremyinstagram #hautecuisines #tablesituation #untoldvisuals #smallthings #kinfolklife #huffposttaste #myopenkitchen #thehappynow #beautifulcuisines #thelifestylecollective #mycommontable #simplethingsmadebeautiful #thatsdarling #gatheredstyle #click_vision #morningscenes #goop #f52grams #saveur at Istanbul, Turkey

Is it the weekend yet?! I wish I could go on a weekend trip to the foggy forest with @fevonos tomorrow and have a slice of that (vegan) Turkish BΓΆrek Pie with Mushrooms, Spinach and Thyme.

"And all at once, summer collapsed into fall." What has been your favorite fall recipe so far? I'm currently loving everything with cauliflower. Until I moved to Turkey I didn't know that it has its peak season in fall. I always thought it's available year around everywhere but it does actually taste best now. I love to roast the whole cauliflower and serve it with a tahini dip and sprinkle it with pomegranate seeds. A recipe I first ate in Israel and though it's simple, it's so tasty. . . . . . . #lifeandthyme #eattheworld #foodandwine #cntravelereats #vzcomade #makeitdelicious #simplepleasures #gatheringslikethese #appetitejournal #hautecuisines #inspiremyinstagram #tablesituation #smallthings #untoldvisuals #kinfolklife #huffposttaste #myopenkitchen #thehappynow #beautifulcuisines #mycommontable #thelifestylecollective #simplethingsmadebeautiful #thatsdarling #finditliveit #gatheredstyle #click_vision #scrumptiouskitchen #goop at Istanbul, Turkey

Turkish BΓΆrek Pie with Mushrooms, Spinach and Thyme ✨ I think one of my favorite blog posts is finally online today (link in profile @blackwhitevivid ). It's the recipe for this BΓΆrek Pie, shot in the moody and foggy forest of Bolu in Turkey. Just skip my intro text and head straight to the images πŸ™ˆπŸ˜„ I wish I could take photos in this kind of weather and scenery every day. Outdoor food photography is (in my opinion) so much more challenging but also so much more rewarding than studio photography. . . . . . . #foodblogger #vegansofig #seasonalfood #istanbul #thrivemags #eeeeeats #food4thought #foodphotography #seekthesimplicity #bevisuallyinspired #campinglife #documentyourdays #foodie_feature #realfood #pursuepretty #autumnvibes #foodphotographer #gloobyfood #saveur #wildfoodlove #goop #wholefoods #whatveganseat #scrumptiouskitchen #heresmyfood #simplethingsmadebeautiful #thehappynow #appetitejournal #vzcomade at Bolu

Cardamom Pumpkin Porridge with Pear ✨ Thank you so much everyone for your quince recipe suggestions yesterday. Your really had some great ideas on how to use quince. I absolutely loved the potato, quince and parsnip soup by @k_a_t_h_r_i_n, Quince bread by @chlorosiswolff, Quince Cheese by @foodiegudi, Spiced Cooked Quince in Red Wine by @picturethatfood and Quince Pate de Fruits by @lulu_and_the_balayette. I think I have enough quince inspiration for now. Also, some of you might be aware (because I left so many whining comment underneath your pumpkin photos) that I finallyyyy got my hands on this season's first pumpkin 😍 So inspired to get back to the kitchen after my weekend trip to London. But for now, I'm super excited to be flying to London tomorrow morning and seeing @shisodelicious tomorrow and @thebotanicalkitchen on Saturday πŸ’› . . . . . #lifeandthyme #eattheworld #gatheringslikethese #tablesituation #inspiremyinstagram #appetitejournal #untoldvisuals #mycommontable #myopenkitchen #huffposttaste #thehappynow #finditliveit #heresmyfood #feedfeed #f52grams #ourplatesdaily #scrumptiouskitchen #goop #whatveganseat #wholefoods #saveur #wildfoodlove #diewocheaufinstagram #letscookvegan #thekitchn #kitchenbowl #gloobyfood #foodie_feature at Istanbul, Turkey

Just a Breakfast Jar in front of a waterfall in Iceland ✨I first wasn't sure if I should be taking about my new found love for outdoor food photography or German Unity Day which is today. Since I'm currently working on a recipe post for a Turkish BΓΆrek Picnic Pie which I shot last weekend in the forest, I thought I keep that topic about outdoor photography for tomorrow. And instead, talk about what I personally think is the most important public holiday in Germany (yes, even before Christmas).😊 I've been tagged lately by some people to talk about 10 random facts about me. I won't do all 10 today but start with one. I was born in the former GDR (or also know as East Germany). I was 4 when as they say the wall came down. Now, I'm not someone who lives much in the past. I also don't like the 'what if's' and 'would have's' when talking about past events and history. But if the East German Government hadn't announced in November 1989 that all GDR citizens could finally cross the boarder again after years and decades of oppression, travel bans and dictatorship. If 27 years ago my mum wouldn't have been allowed to finally see her sister again who fled the GDR with a boat despite high chances of being killed or imprisoned. Then, I wouldn't be able to enjoy this free life I'm living today. I wouldn't have travelled to over 70 countries and lived in so many places. I wouldn't know most of you I had met in real life. So, today I'm just thankful for the past...and present. πŸ’› . . . . . . . #eattheworld #foodandwine #cntravelereats #vzcomade #simplepleasures #hautecuisines #gatheringslikethese #smallthings #kinfolklife #untoldvisuals #tablesituation #beautifulcuisines #thelifestylecollective #thatsdarling #huffposttaste #inspiremyinstagram #mycommontable #simplethingsmadebeautiful #myopenkitchen #thehappynow #myeverydaymagic #gatheredstyle #finditliveit #click_vision #whatveganseat #searchwandercollect #scrumptiouskitchen #nestandflourish #diewocheaufinstagram at Iceland

Honey, Black Pepper and Plum Pie (almost vegan, except for the honey) ✨ How and where do you find cooking inspiration? Last week my fridge was filled with the last plums of this season and I didn't really know what to do with them. I didn't want to do yet again another plum compote or cake spiced with nutmeg or cinnamon. So I asked one of my best friends Google again (she is so smart πŸ˜‹). "What goes well with plums" and see here, I was in 'fruit pairing' heaven. One article suggested to pair plums with black pepper or honey among other spices. So why not even combine both? The result is this Honey, Black Pepper Plum Pie and it might be my new favorite flavour combination. Of course, I didn't use any honey but from a very ethical and small beekeeper in the U.K. This is not only important to guarantee sustainable beekeeping but also makes all the difference in the taste. Honey isn't supposed to taste only sweet but it has its own strong and delicious flavour. . . . . . . #lifeandthyme #eattheworld #foodandwine #cntravelereats #vzcomade #simplepleasures #makeitdelicious #gatheringslikethese #hautecuisines #smallthings #untoldvisuals #kinfolklife #beautifulcuisines #thelifestylecollective #inspiremyinstagram #appetitejournal #tablesituation #simplethingsmadebeautiful #thatsdarling #huffposttaste #thehappynow #mycommontable #myopenkitchen #myeverydaymagic #morningscenes #gatheredstyle #f52grams #finditliveit #feedfeed at Istanbul, Turkey

Spelt Pasta with Fresh Herb Pesto and Figs ✨ Happy Friday everyone! I just wanted to give you a short update on my @pinnertestusa results. I got a few questions after posting the results of my food intolerance test and I thought I'd answer the most common one here and now 😊 Some of you asked me if I did already feel the positive effects of eliminating nightshades. My body has the strongest (negative) reaction to potatoes and eggplant so I'm currently focusing on these two. Eggplant is easy but potatoes is more difficult than expected. So the answer is, yes and no. Yes, I do feel better sometimes but there are some setbacks. Just a few days ago I had an episode of inflamed skin and stomach issues again. I was sure that I didn't eat any nightshades so I couldn't explain it at first. When I thought about it the only thing I could that came to my mind were the new vitamins and adaptogens I had only very recently started taking. I didn't see any potato starch on the ingredient lists but 3 out of 4 listed something called maltodextrin. One Google search later and I knew that this was made from rice, corn or potato starch. Duhhhh! And I even bought the more expansive brands but maltodextrin is used as a filler to fill the capsules. Well, my mum will be happy about some new vitamins and adaptogens πŸ™ˆπŸ˜„ . . . . . . . #lifeandthyme #eattheworld #foodandwine #cntravelereats #simplepleasures #makeitdelicious #vzcomade #smallthings #gatheringslikethese #hautecuisines #kinfolklife #inspiremyinstagram #untoldvisuals #appetitejournal #tablesituation #beautifulcuisines #thelifestylecollective #thehappynow #mycommontable #simplethingsmadebeautiful #thatsdarling #huffposttaste #myopenkitchen #myeverydaymagic #gatheredstyle #heresmyfood #f52grams at Istanbul, Turkey
