  • Easy brioche buns

    This week is ’real bread week’ so Singlemade will be all about fresh and homemade bread. I looked for another simple and single-proof bread recipe and found these fun buns. It’s a recipe for 8 buns which might be a bit too much for a single sitting but you can...
  • Lentil stew with cumin à la Golli

    It’s been almost a year since we moved from Cologne to Berlin. We spent the first two weeks sleeping on our new red Ikea-couch before we moved our bed and the rest of our stuff over. On moving day I flew back and forth to Cologne to arrange everything: wait...
  • Homemade Nutella

    On the 5th of February it’s World Nutella Day and I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than by making my own Nutella. After several failed attempts I managed to make a hazelnut paste that’s not only healthier but also even better than Nutella. We haven’t bought any...
  • Quick coco-lime soup with glass noodles and broccoli (vegan)

    Almost ten years ago I did an internship in different restaurants in a huge hotel complex in Bangkok. I learned to make wonton-leaves with an axe, how to carve carrots into flowers, how to fire wok like a pro - believe me, a western girl behind a fire wok is...
  • Oven Baked chicken drumsticks with potatoes, spinach and parmesan cheese

    This recipe was supposed to come online in 2018 but it never made it to the blog back then. I just didn’t get around to writing it out and sending it to the test panel. But it was one of the first recipes to be tested in 2019. And it...
  • White beans & cabbage soup with sausages

    To my utter discontent, it is still winter. The days might have started getting longer again but it’s still grey and cold outside. In other words, a nice hearty soup is always a good idea. I had a white cabbage laying around and was looking for some inspiration. On the...
  • Flammkuchen with bacon and onion

    I’ve been living in Germany for over two years now and I’ve realised that SInglemade doesn’t have a single German recipe on it. I’ll be honest, I’m not a fan of German cuisine. Very greasy, lots of sauce, potatoes galore… No, I’ll pass on German currywurst, schnitzels and klösse. But...
  • Golden curcuma syrup

    Curcuma is a miracle spice. It’s anti-inflammatory, it detoxes and it helps your digestive tract. It’s good for your heart, liver, brains, in short, your entire body! No wonder golden milk was and is one of the most popular drinks in recent memory. In case you’ve been living under a rock,...
  • Easy peanut butter cookies with just 4 ingredients

    Only 3 ingredients cookies by CrunchyCreamySweet.com. When I saw the heading, I knew I had found a new addition to Singlemade. Cookies with only 3 ingredients? Too good to be true! But it's true nonetheless! Even though it took me 3 loads to refine the recipe. I don't like things...
  • Two-style oven baked nachos: creamy tomato or hot & spicy

    Our neighbours watered our plants while we were traveling and we wanted to thank them. And when we thank people, it usually takes the shape of food. 🙂 I still had a huge bag of tortilla chips lying around that I’d bought on a whim. Having kids over was perfect to...
  • Easy moussaka with sweet potato

    Moussaka, potatoes, minced meat and bechamel sauce… One of those delicious classics that usually take a lot of work. But what happens when a lazy chef tackles a classic? That’s right, get ready for moussaka done easy. Ok, ok, Greeks and purists will probably resent me for not sticking to...
  • Oven baked cod in smoked ham with olives and tomato

    Today is Sunday, October 7th and I’m writing this recipe’s intro. We’re nowhere near Halloween or the Holiday Season but nevertheless Instagram and Facebook are being spammed with Christmas-stuff. Not only food bloggers are in yule-mode, the shops in Berlin have been crammed with Christmas-chocolate and -wreaths. Yes, last year I...
  • Oven baked chicken drumstick with pumpkin and dates

    Last November was all about pumpkins so Singlemade’s already pretty well stocked with yummy pumpkin recipes. I wasn’t planning on adding another one, but karma, or fate, or some other cosmic force struck! Berlin was freezing cold and that means it’s oven time. I had a little pumpkin laying around that...
  • Halloween special: French onion soup with spiders

    We’re approaching the end of October and that means it’s time to get spooky! Last year I posted a scary pumpkin soup with witches fingers. The general opinion wasn’t at all what I was expecting. I was hoping for my Singlemade-fans to cry for their mothers, but they all said:...
  • Eggs in pots (oeuf cocotte) with salmon

    You’re well aware that I love eggs. What the chef likes, the chef cooks. So here’s ANOTHER egg recipe, called eggs in pots. Cream, cheese and eggs, a very French recipe and therefore likely to be delicious. This French classic is usually served for breakfast because it’s to be spooned...
  • Cauliflower steaks with spicy chickpeas and tapenade

    Today’s trending vegetable is undoubtedly cauliflower. I can’t think of anything you can’t make with it: rice, pasta, cheese sauce… Another hip dish is cauliflower steak. A juicy, oven baked slice of cauliflower, but that’s where the analogy ends. Don’t get me wrong, I love me a nice beef steak,...
  • Vietnamese Udon noodles à la HelloFresh

    While we were moving to Berlin I tried a HelloFresh-box for the first time in my life. I’ve been aware of the concept for a while now (a box with recipe charts and all the ingredients to make them, all delivered at home), but I’d never tried it before. Being...
  • Savoury fig strudel

    The amazing summer has caused Sofie’s garden to bulk with figs. Hungry for inspiration, Sofie sent me an email, asking for original fig recipes. Nothing’s too much trouble when it comes to my loyal fans, so as soon as I was able to get my hands on some figs (I...
  • Homemade egg salad

    During my latter college years, I worked a job in the university’s cafeteria. I must have made hundreds if not thousands of sandwiches. It was the best job ever: my colleagues were the sweetest ladies in the world and I was allowed to take leftovers home. I made a lot...
  • Homemade muesli bars

    The other day, I went shopping for groceries while hungry. Always a bad idea, I know, but I had convinced myself I wouldn’t give in to an unhealthy craving, so I bought a muesli bar. It took away the hunger but that doesn’t mean I enjoyed it. Already at the...
  • One pot orzo with turkey and celery

    The one pot pasta with fennel and cherry tomatoes was a big hit. It was such a big hit that I created a new one-pot-recipe. It’s another pasta, but it’s disguised as rice because orzo is a sneaky rice-impersonator! 😉 I do have to confess that this one-pot takes a teensy...
  • Caponata à la Danoi #cookingwithferleon

    Here it is: the #cookingwithferleon winning recipe! Danoi entered this caponata, a Sicilian aubergine stew. Just one bite of this caponata made me taste Italy’s sunshine! #lavitaebella And not just the flavours convinced me. This recipe is totally easy to make, ànd it’s single-proof! It’s multi-purpose as well: you can...
  • Baked rice with egg, peas and bell peppers

    When I cook rice it’s enough to feed an army. I love having leftover rice, there’s so much you can do with it: a salad, easy rice pudding, fried rice… And I particularly love the latter. The grains have dried which means they absorb taste more easily than freshly boiled...
  • Filo pastry ricotta-apricot pie

    Going shopping means getting inspired so I often end up buying a lot more than what’s on my shopping list. :-p That’s how filo dough turned up in my shopping basket. I hadn’t used it in years, so I thought to myself: let’s get reacquainted. I had half a cup...
  • Stuffed sweet potato with goat cheese, smoked ham and honey walnuts

    Whenever I take my little sister Mathilde out to lunch, the odds are that she’ll order a goat cheese salad. She’d be able to write a huge restaurant guide issuing points purely based on the quality of their goat cheese salad. No, there’s no bigger fried-goat-cheese-monster than her! Mathilde came to...
  • Mango dip à la Anniepannie

    Here we go again with a mango recipe. Ik thought I would limit myself this summer to the mango lassi, but Anniepannie changed my mind. I was intrigued when she posted this mango dip on her Instagram feed. Just three ingredients, mango included… I immediately looked up the recipe and...
  • Homemade rhubarb-strawberry jam + tips & tricks

    Nothing beats homemade, but absolutely nothing beats homemade jam. I can't even remember the last time I bought a jar of jam. In other words: I make my own jam all the time! Is this really something for singles? Absolutely! Otherwise, I wouldn't publish it on Singlemade ! 😉 Making your...
  • No-knead-bread (from the Ferleon cast-iron pot)

    I’ve said it before: homemade bread isn’t all that hard, it’s just a lot of work. All that kneading and resting means that it’s not really a Singlemade-recipe. The Irish soda bread is an exception to this rule and I have some good news: I found another one! Get ready,...
  • No-stir risotto with chestnut mushrooms

    In case you didn’t know it: I’m a lazy chef and proud of it! Why make it hard on yourself when you can take it easy? :-p And being lazy comes with nothing but advantages. It means I’m always looking for the simplest and easiest way to cook delicious food. A...
  • Sheet cake with green asparagus

    There’s no denying it’s asparagus season! Every food blogger has posted at least one asparagus recipe so Singlemade had to keep up! White or green asparagus? A no-brainer if you ask me. I prefer the green ones because they don’t require peeling. I’ll always be a lazy chef, so if...
