Sunday's Recipe: fig pizza with goat cheese and caramelized onions

My experimenting with fruity pizza toppings continues...
I've made this pizza countless times during October to savor the fresh figs of the season but I guess it could also be made with dried figs. Can't decide which recipe I like better, the one with peaches or this one with figs, they're both so delicious!

If you have any recipe recommendations with a bit unusal toppings please let me know in the comments, I'd love to try new ones!

The recipe for the fig pizza with goat cheese and caramelized onions can be found here.

Have a good Sunday!

Not too cool for school

Mi-Ji and I met at university back in 2006 and decided some time after to start a blog together. Most of our outfit pictures from these years were taken in or around the university and are sort of documenting our friendship and daily life as students. There is for instance a picture of me with crazy hair and even crazier outfit in March 2009 in front of the main entrance of the University of Zurich, or the one in May 2009 right after our last German literature class together or the one in 2008 titled “Too cool for school”. Well in hindsight I doubt that. ^^

Why the sentimentality you wonder? Today I handed in my Master thesis on which I’ve worked for several months and I’m getting closer and closer to graduating and whilst this is all very exciting and stuff I also had the need to look through our archives… Because even though the last 5.5 years weren't easy, the friendships I've built in university made them so much more bearable...

What I wore today:

Trench and Jeans: H&M Sweater: Zara
Bag: Liebeskind

Sunday's Recipe: Zeytinyagli taze fasulye (Turkish fresh green beans in olive oil)

As most of you know by now, I am of Turkish origin and cherish my heritage very much. If you asked me about the Turkish cuisine my answer would be totally biased so I'll ask you instead: Have you ever tried Turkish specialities? Which is your favorite dish?

One of the dishes I love is Zeytinyagli taze fasulye, fresh green beans in olive oil. Yes, not with but rather in olive oil. There is a plethora of olive oil dishes that are served as cold starters or side dishes and this is a very popular one.

I did this at the end of summer with beans plucked straight from the garden. Had I only written this post earlier so that Iconjane, who had a sudden craving for Zeytinyagli fasulye the other day, could have used the recipe I'm about to share.

At this point I'd like to redirect you to a blog I think is very interesting and also where I found the recipe: almost turkish recipes. It has provided me with lots of ideas and and I love it when Banu writes a bit more about the origins of a certain dish...

Even though mine didn't taste like my mom's, which is in my opinion the worlds most delicious Zeytinyagli taze fasulye, it was still pretty good!

Afiyet olsun (bon appetit)!

Just somebody

Blazer & Bag - local shop in Seoul, Silken blouse & Boots - H&M, Jewelry - Flea Market

I promised to let you know the content of the packet - it's a black blazer like I assumed! Mom, you're the best! I wasn't actually brave enough to wear all black, although I stated "black is such a happy color" a few days ago. So I combined the blazer with the H&M Kimono I recently found at half-price!

I didn't really realize that dressing ALL black needs a certain amount of courage since you appear very strong and severe..

Remeber when we mentioned the Renaissance Zurich Tower Hotel?
We were invited to enjoy a lovely dinner and to explore the cuisine of the Equinox Restaurant, which is part of the new Renaissance Hotel complex. Since multistory buildings aren't common in Switzerland, the Hotel Tower is kind of an attraction itself.

The dinner was more than delicious as you can guess from the photos. Unfortunately we couldn't capture every single menu course since we were too busy with eating, drinking and chatting ;)

To grant an additional point: The main course we had is listed as "Pimp my Steak" in the menu.
Nothing more appealing than a chic restaurant matching the pulse of our time.

Wednesday's Interior Decoration Inspiration:

Designer Lisa Sherry's house

It's been a long while I did interior inspiration posts! I missed posting interior pictures I like and hope you enjoyed them in the past, too. These have been in my folder for a couple of weeks and I thought I'd bring back this series by posting from time to time what I thought was beautiful and interesting. Here you can have a look at my previous posts in this category.

When it comes to interior decoration I'm so torn between dark and light colors. I love the dramatic touch of black but also the sereneness of white...

Taking MiJi's last post into consideration, what would you say: black or white?

Black is such a happy color

These days I feel like wearing black more than ever. My mom told me that she's sent a package and I assume that it could be a black blazer - yay! I told her that I was looking for a simple black one at an affordable price some time ago. I'll let you know the content of the packet...

Toffee colored

These wedges transitioned well from summer to early fall when the sun was shining, so I wore them together with this toffee colored jacket when I went to the boutiques I wrote about in my last post.

I like to wear my hair in a high pony tail to show off the slightly defined shoulders of this jacket.
