Once upon a time I wished I were a princess. No never the queen, ladies with this job description have kind of a bad reputation. I guess there had been too much Grimm’s fairy stories in my early youth where the queen tent to be evil and demanding the princess’ heart. Lucky me becoming a Weiterlesen

It is hot as blue blazes and my a/c is on duty nonstop and tries to keep the insight temperature at an human-appropriate level. I love my sweet treats, so I am still cranking up my oven despite the weather. I am not giving up my baking, that’s why ceiling fans are invented.
After popping cakes Weiterlesen

Visiting my family in Germany itself is a happy event, the other thing is the food. I always have a long must-eat-list and a not shorter nice-to-have-list, usually I manage them both. I know in advance I have to cut back sweet treats for a while after returning home. In addition to my superb and Weiterlesen

Usually I would have a desire for hot soup this time of the year. The calendar says it’s winter but outside it’s warm and sunny, strange weather isn’t it? Don’t get me wrong I am not complaining, love it. A couple of days ago I splurged on tea. The lady in the store told me: Weiterlesen

Or because of my aversion to sweet potatoes with marshmallows? I herewith change my statement from my last week post and I have to tell you I am totally convinced Thanksgiving Weiterlesen

I got no idea where or who it started but printed shirts as a souvenir are available everywhere. I am not just talking about the profound ‘I caught a snow bunny in Colorado’ shirts or the ones who just name a town, a restaurant or what ever on the chest. Actually some of them are Weiterlesen

The weather had been hot in the heartlands since a couple of weeks (I know I am not telling you any news). On the contrary to good old Germany where rain and cool temperature let my family drink hot tea at night. I heard of a smart business idea to set up vending machines for Weiterlesen

It has been 2.5 years since the move from my hometown in Germany to Kansas City and I remember it wasn’t always easy to adjust to the “American way” and to meet new people, literally everybody I met was a stranger and unfortunately I am very bad at remembering names. After a few months I Weiterlesen

I am making this kind of salad a lot recently, one reason is it is a smart way to reuse not so fresh or even stale bread, the other reason it is just a great salad.
I like it as a side dish for grilled meat and if you already heated up your grill you can Weiterlesen
