Growing up my parents had been tending a Schrebergarten (community garden) in our hometown in Germany. This garden was not part of one of those gardening communities, where they constantly check if you cut your grass accurately and you find some (actually many) of them strangely decorated with garden gnomes and plastic deer. Not at Weiterlesen

Every now and then I crank up my oven (yes I am crazy enough to use it even in summer months), I also put in some red beets, drizzled with oil and wrapped up nice and tightly with aluminum foil. I love them roasted the best and store them ready to go in the refrigerator Weiterlesen

Do you remember this situation? You are on a farmers market and you discover the most beautiful and freshest portobello mushrooms you have ever seen. Well maybe not, but for sure you had been intrigued by a fascinating and/or unknown food before. I believe this is what enjoying food is all about. If you don’t Weiterlesen

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

Did I brag about our sunny weather here in the South East last time? I did and I won’t take it back even it is raining right now and drops are falling on my window. A spring shower gives me a break from the sun. My belly asks for comfort food and my mind for Weiterlesen

The other thing that’s bothering me about being new in town, is starting Weiterlesen

We survived Halloween! Everything went fast. Everything! Unbelievable fast. This time I was well prepared, there is not much to do anyway. Get a load of candies, put everything in a bowl, wait for the door bell. I make it short, we all know the process. Do we? I have to admit I felt a Weiterlesen

Schupfnudeln are on my to cook list (or craving list) since weeks. They are what I would call German comfort food and usually eaten with the mostly well known sauerkraut and bacon. Another name but rather uncommon is Finger Nudeln (finger noodles). Though they are called Nudeln I would rather translate them as dumplings as 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
