Zucchini Parmesan Basil Soup

I feel so bad for disappearing for such a long time! Honestly, I have no excuses. I was unmotivated and uninspired to take pictures of anything I had cooked or baked in the past weeks. Let me explain how such a thing can happen to me, me who is in love with taking pictures of anything but mostly of food!
So the joy that filled my days after graduating from college and that I could enjoy life and summer has ceased as August rolled in. Because the enormous question has risen that what now? I need a job. 
So I started searching frantically for a job or an internship. Turns out it's one hell of a job itself to find a job! I know, it should have been obvious but it wasn't to me until now. So I got less and less enthusiastic about being out of school each and every day. 
Decisions, decisions... 
So until a few days ago when I finally made up my mind to go to a graduate school in the spring and until then I'll just do some work. This calmed me down a bit so inspiration is emerging. Slowly but steadily :) So here you go, an incredibly tasty soup that is perfect in every way! It's quick, it doesn't require a ton of ingredients, it's crazy healthy, diet approved, dairy-free and most of all GOOD! 
Have a sandwich with it and it's the ultimate weekday lunch! 

Zucchini Parmesan Basil Soup
recipe adapted from Our Life In Food

2 small or 1 big purple onions - chopped
3 medium zucchinis - chopped
vegetable stock or water - as much as will cover the vegetables
1/2 cup grated parmesan
a handful of fresh basil leaves
2 tablespoons dairy-free cream

Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a pan. Add in the chopped onions and sprinkle it with 1 teaspoon salt. Saute it until they're soft and then add in the zucchinis. Add some salt and let them soften for a few minutes. Stir it a few times. Then add as much stock or water that will just cover the veggies. It's about 3, 3 and a half cups. Season it with more salt and dried vegetable mix if using water. Turn the heat to low and let it cook until it's starting to simmer, about 15 minutes. Add the grated parmesan and basil leaves and puree the soup in a food processor. Transfer the soup back to the pan and turn the heat on again. Add in the dairy-free cream and let it simmer for a few minutes. Serve it with a sprinkle of parmesan. Enjoy :)

Brown Butter Walnut Cake with Chocolate-Mocha Ganache

This post is yet again an example of how I procrastinate when it comes to studying or making a presentation. Whichever. This is going to be a lovely tale about a "magnifique" cake.  I got my inspiration to make that brown butter walnut sensation from  Procrastobaker . It is seriously one of the best things I've ever baked. I do not think the photos do justice when I tried to catch how breath-taking the cake is once a bite lands in your mouth... It is crispy on the outside and so juicy in the inside and the chocolate-mocha ganache goes just perfectly well with it. I changed the original recipe a bit, as I worked with walnuts and I added a layer of chocolate cream inside the cake, as well. Also, it is important to add that it is best one day after it was made. While it chilled in the fridge. Oh my... It was such a hit! Definitely going to make it again...and again... :) But I won't keep you on your toes and fill you in with this lovely recipe!

Homemade Nutella

I was an exchange student (ah how many times I've said this sentence...) 5 years ago in the US. I'm not gonna talk about how it was (AMAZING) but then and there I gained sisters! Now I have one living in the States and one living in Germany. And next week we are gonna be reunited! I can't wait, I am so excited! So this week I am going to Germany and was thinking what I should bring. Because basically Germany has everything that Hungary has, if not more. So what to give what to give? I was thinking really hard when a completely random thing came to my mind. I should make some nutella. She loves nutella. Frankly, who doesn't, right? I love it, too although it's been years since I ate any. I can't really explain why because I always think that if I eat just one spoon, I will gain a 100 pounds immediately. But with this thought, I shouldn't be eating any brownies, cookies...etc.  BUT today I tried my homemade Nutella. OH MY GOD. I wouldn't have though
