TWO Tuesday Recipes and a Kitchen Playlist!!!


5. March 2013 by swissfitchick

Hey friends!!

Now since I spend quite some time in the kitchen in my free time to precook my meals and trying new recipes, I ALWAYS need music while working. Music is my passion and it is so much more fun to dance and sing around in the kitchen while creating the good stuff. It’s possible that my neighbours are watching me and think I am the weirdest and craziest person in the street, but I don’t care at all. So since I know that this genius girl loves music in the kitchen too, I created a playlist. I can only recommend to download it and play it while you are doing things in the kitchen – it’s the best kitchenparty and so much more fun!!!


Runaround Sue – Dion&The Belmonts

Wild Wild West – Will Smith

California – Phantom Planet

Golden Age – Fruit (looove this!!)

Drunk in the Morning – Lukas Graham

Copacabana – Barry Manilow

Marry you – Bruno Mars

Buttons – Pussycat Dolls

Can’t Take my Eyes off you – Boys Town Gang

Black or White – Michael Jackson

……talking about Bruno Mars and his song ‘Marry You’ – I think this is the absolute wonderful proposal!!! PLEASE watch it, I LOVE it!!

And while we’re at it…..

Make Meal Prep, Cooking, Baking, Cleaning a Fun-Party-Dancing-Time!!!


And while it is downloading, you can memorize the recipes and then head straight to the kitchen!!

So now FINALLY I present a savory and so simple dish, PLUS a new and delicious Pancake recipe.

Pumpkin-Asparagus-Chicken-Casserole (1-2 servings)


Ingredients casserole: 
120g raw chickenbreast (skinless)
4 green asparagus
100g chopped uncooked pumpkin

1 egg, 1 eggwhite, beaten with chives and paprika
1 tbsp oatbran (optional – I skipped this)
1 tbsp grated cheese (optional)

I did marinate the chicken before, it’s optional, but it gets jucier. So for the marinade you need: 
3tbsp coconutmilk
1 tbsp mustard
juice of half a lemon
1tsb each; Dill, pepper, salt, curry, paprika, chives
whisk all ingredients until combined well.

Place the chicken in a little plastic bag and pour over HALF of the marinade and marinate for at least 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 180° Celsius
Chop the veggies and place them in a mini casserole or any oven-safe form. Sprinkle with a little olive oil. Pour the rest of the marinade over the veggies.

While this is baking, make the eggmix: 
Whisk together the egg, the eggwhite, oatbran and half of the cheese. Stir well.
Quickly pull out the casserole and spread the eggmix over the chicken and veggies. Bake for another 10 minutes. 1 minute before you take it out, sprinkle with the rest of the cheese. FINAL BAKING TIME IS 30 minutes.

You can leave this just like this in the fridge and warm it up whenever you feel like.


So this pancake recipe comes from my friend Claudia. Claudia is not only a good friend since a long time, she is also an excellent cook and before it all a perfectionist at her job – permanent make up art. She did my eyebrows years ago and I never regretted it.

I tried the recipe on the weekend and it is really really good. I got her permission to publish it here for you! The secret ingredient is the curd cheese or the greek yogurt, whichever you choose. It makes them really soft, fresh and fluffy. AND it makes a delicious topping too!

Claudia’s Oatbran-Curd-Pancakes (2 pancakes)

2 tbsp oatbran
250g low fat curd cheese or low fat greek yogurt
2 eggwhites
1 tsp chia seeds
1/2 tsp each: stevia, cinnamon, vanilla / a dash of salt

Only include 2 tbsp of the curd/yogurt into the pancake dough, and save the rest for the topping. Whisk it with the other ingredients (oatbran, eggwhites, chia seeds, spices/sweeteners) and cook as pancakes.

IMG_2988 IMG_2987For the topping, you can spread the curd or the yogurt just plain. I like it a bit tastier and did 2 frostings:
1.)I mixed it with 2 tsp cocoa powder (unsweetened), added a few drops of stevia, cinnamon, vanilla and cardamom.
2.) The other frosting was less sweet, I added the spices, but skipped on the stevia and cocoa.
I dipped the strawberries in the cocoa-curd-frosting and enjoyed on the side.
You can of course add berries, bananaslices, appleslices, syrup, nuts on top….whatever you love.

Enjoy, sing and dance!! 🙂




Do you listen to music while you cook? 

What is your favorite song to which you start dancing immediately?

    OMG! I’m dancing as I type… at least my feet are! Great post, Lucie! And that casserole is so easy to make!!
    It’s unfortunate I can’t have oats – as those pancakes look awesome. And thank you for the yogurt topping tip! Especially with the strawberries!
    I don’t listen to any music while I cook – maybe cause I don’t cook that much.
    Anyways thank you for putting a smile on my face this morning! I hope to keep that all day long!!

    • Aaaah I am so happy i could make you smile!! Isn’t music the best?? You coul replace the oatbran with wholw wheat or buckwheat flour if that’s more convenient! Have a fab day love!

  3. I love your playlist – lots of feel good tunes for sure :). I love listening to music while I cook, I tried watching tv but it didn’t end well haha!

  4. You already know this post has left me smiling from ear to ear… and that I think these pancakes just rock!! 🙂 🙂

  5. I have a stereo in my kitchen, but I normally have my TV on in the background. I should definitely listen to music more often when I am cooking, though!

    LOVE the looks and sound of that pancake recipe. I bet that those pancakes turn out super moist!

  6. Girl, you have good music taste! Too bad I don’t have a stereo in the kitchen usually using Spotify on my laptop to listen to music. Still, I agree cooking is ten times more fun with music – not that I’d ever admit to using the wire whisk as a microphone or anything ;).

  7. Definitely intrigued by that casserole recipe! I may have to try it sometime. 😀

    And yes – kitchen dance parties. So fun!

  8. kepotts says:

    Oh the casserole looks divine! I always forget to put pumpkin in savory dishes! I’m a fan of what my girlfriends & I call “nasty rap” to always get me moving, those good dance songs you know will make you move!

  9. gosh that casserole looks so good!

  10. Lisa says:

    The casserole looks and sounds so delicious! Yum!
    And the pancakes look awesome too! You are so creative:)
    I don’t usually listen to music, but I do watch TV while cooking. I use it as time to catch up on all that trash I watch 😉

    • Thank you Lisa! I don’t have a TV near the kitchen, maybe I would watch too – but I’d be scared that everything starts to burn while I watch downton abbey 🙂

  11. OH EM GEE. Can we have a cooking party together?? Your songs are all so perfectly happy and dancey and I am already envisioning us shakin’ our booties and using spatulas as microphones. One day. one day.
    ANYWHO thanks so much for posting this! Its so cute and fun and the recipes (as always!) looks great. Love you my dear 🙂

    • WOOOOOT!! Girl, I would LOVE that!! I can totally imagine us 2 crazy chicken rocking the kitchen (that’s even a rhime, I can’t handle it)!! Spatulas, Peppermills, Quirls…..:-)

  12. Nadja says:

    I LOVE singing and dancing while cooking too! Well… I love singing and dancing while doing pretty much everything 😉 and i don’t know if i really need to say something about your recipes because as always they seem delicious!!

  13. I 100% agree – I have music on all day when I work from home and love it on when I cook! I use, love that site.

  14. […] #1: Lucie’s pancakes: In the mix: 2 tbsp. oat bran, 2 tbsp. Greek yogurt (I used honey flavor), 2 egg whites & […]

  15. Yes yes yes!! I ALWAYS listen to music (and sing and dance) while I cook. It’s my “me time,” and I truly believe that it’s more therapeutic (and fun) than any other activity I do! I love every single song on your playlist, and will definitely be downloading the ones that I don’t already have. “Wild Wild West” takes me back to my pre-teen years! I remember when that song was THE song of the summer. Oh, and everyone had a crush on Will Smith! Haha…wow, that seems so long ago. 😉

    Mmm…the marinade for the chicken sounds amazing! I love the idea of using coconut milk to tenderize the meat–yum! I’m also drooling over your oat bran pancakes (and those delicious toppings). I’ve almost never met a pancake I didn’t like, so I’ll be giving these a try!

    Hope you’re having a wonderful week, Miss Lucie! xoxo ❤

    • Oh I am so happy to hear that you are a kitchen dancer too! 🙂 I am totally with you that it is the perfect therapy. Whenever I feel sad or grumpy, I just turn on some happy music and everything looks so much better!

  17. I absolutely frickin’ LOVE you, you sweet sweet woman you!! That playlist is AWESOME! I can totally see myself bee-bopping around the kitchen with that…and I especially love that you included Buttons…that song gets me dancing EVERY time! I used to have it on my running playlist (back when I was into that sort of thing…Ha!) and whenever it came on, I swear my pace would be cut in HALF! That and Electric Guest “This Head I Hold” or The Black Keys “Gold on the Ceiling”…those ALWAYS get me super pumped!

    Those pancakes look amazing! And I’m totally digging the cocoa-infused yogurt topping! But since you know ALL about my recent addiction to healthy chocolate sauce, I’m sure you could have guessed that! 😉

    • Ha, I just KNEW you are a kitchen dancer!!! So fun, and all these perfect Karaoke microphones!! I will download these 2 songs and then make pancakes and dance to them and feeling like Heather! Freekin scary, ey? 🙂

  20. Kath says:

    Hi Lucie, I’ve found you via Greta’s blog (the pancake …). I want to make it in a dairy-free version. The casserole dish also looks very good! 🙂

    • Thank you Kath I am happy you stopped by!! You could swap the curd cheese with Soyayogurt or mashed chickpease of mashed beans!

      • Kath says:

        Chickpeas or beans are a fancy idea! I’m allergic to soy (and dairy and wheat …) so that’s not an option, but I’ve also thought about using almond milk. 🙂

      • Yes, that’s a good idea, though it could be that it gets too liquid. I think mashed beans should work and chickpeas have a neutral taste so you can play around with it pretty well!

Who thought I would ever write again. Link in Bio. ‚'In essence, love is the consistent embodiment of care, compassion, kindness, and joy toward yourself, your partner, and each other as two interconnected and supported beings. If you encounter those feelings, you can't work around your own vulnerability.

But: there is one emotion that is stronger than fear, and that is forgiveness. For power is never simply a possession but an exercise; power is about how we understand ourselves. If we can forgive, we can let go. If we can let go, we can detach. If we can detach, we find happiness.' #blogger #heartstories #detachment #happiness
