Favourites: Made in Heights & Before Sunrise

Here are two favourites I’d love to share with you today! Music: Made In Heights Made In Heights is a Los Angeles based music duo, adding hash tags as ‘mythical filth’, ‘pop fiction’ and ‘beauty slap’ to their songs on Soundcloud. Those terms didn’t mean anything to me, however, I can see how it fits to their music, with all the perfectly aligned samples and sounds creating something totally dreamy and mesmerizing, alternated with more upbeat and industrial parts. I love their songs so much. They have released the self-titled album Made In Heights in 2012 and already gave away five or six songs of their upcoming second album which ought to be released ‘in the beginning of 2015’. That shouldn’t take long, but until then I will happily continue playing the material that’s already there. It’s so good. I used to mainly listen to artists with male singers, but I actually really love Kelsey’s voice. I love singing myself and it’s amazing to sing their songs, because of the variations and the challenge. The …

The Spiral Vegetable Pie

Look at this magnificent creature. You may refer to it as Spiral Vegetable Tart and Veggie Roulade. I prefer Super Awesome Psychedelic Spiral Rose Vegetable Pie. That is a perfectly accurate description. I created it and since then I’ve spent my time openly bragging about it. It got me 50+ likes – which only encourages this behaviour. It’s really easy to make and I would like to see everybody doing so and posting pictures of the result on their social media. As long as you’re making my version and not the original one of Food Republic, for I have used pumpkin hummus as a base for the veggies in stead of some dairy shizzle. However, you should definitely go to that Food Republic web page and check out the video to see how you do the spiral thing. Or, if you can’t wait, here’s a short cut: they start in the middle. Other than that: the vegetables are just carrots, zucchini and eggplant, sliced really thinly. As you can see I didn’t put too much …

February’s food diary

Have I already come to the point where I am not writing and my blog is just sitting here, holding its breath? I have started my studies and I haven’t managed yet to do the time management thing very well. Plus, my hands feel sensitive already from writing all the other highly important things. Luckily there’s still food! I’ll just make this blog into a food diary then. There’s a huge demand for those. So, I don’t take pictures of my food very often, for multiple reasons. This is the humble collection I built over the past few weeks. Enjoy! Kale and tempeh make such an awesome combination. I just fried it both, with some soy sauce and sesame seeds. This wasn’t the whole meal by the way, but the best looking part. There was also carrot salad with roasted sunflower seeds, raisins and a dressing made out of tahini, spelt syrup and lemon juice. I tried, but it doesn’t work in my pictures. So you’ll have to visualize. Use your taste buds! Pumpkin hummus …
