Nougat Buttons – A favorite Christmas Cookie

yummy nougat button

I don’t like nougat that much but these nougat buttons are a favorite in the Christmas Cookie Jar. They get made envy year. At least for the past 10 if not longer. I like recipes that are quick and easy and don’t take too much time. This is one. And it taste wonderful too. It has a very smooth almost velvety texture, a chocolate-nougat taste and the white chocolate gives it the extra flavor. I know I am raving but you really need to give them a try. I promise you won’t regret

Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Salmon

Today I have a quick recipe. When it comes to cooking it is not really my favorite activity. Unless I cook for myself. Then I am a bit more enthusiastic because I can try new things. I am not a picky eater and if my creation may not taste that great I will still eat it. I can only remember one time when I actually had to trash a dish because it was uneatable. My body had reactions. The roasted brussel sprouts with salmon is one dish I like to do for myself. It is quick, easy and healthy. Now I am just hoping Brussel sprouts don’t trigger strong body reactions for you. I personally believe that Brussel sprouts should get a bit more credit.

Homemade Granola Bars – Breakfast Idea

Are you a breakfast person? I am on the weekends for sure. I love a long breakfast mainly a traditional German version. That includes “Brötchen” – little bread rolls that you then stack with yummy cold cuts and cheeses and jams. However during the week I often just have a coffee, followed by a tea and then have lunch at around 1pm. But sometimes a little snack in the morning with the first coffee and the first video call is a nice change. And so we started to stack up on granola bars. Unfortunately many of the store bought granola bars have lots and lots of sugar. So I decided to give homemade granola bars a try. And I was not disappointed at all.

Who would have thought last year that we are still in lockdown mode and that another Easter will be celebrated in the smallest circle possible – Mr. ♡ and I. Well it is what it is. So I will continue with my own little traditions. For many many years I have been making a braided easter bread for breakfast on Easter Sunday. Hot steaming fresh from the oven. It is one of the things I am looking forward to all year. Of course this braided yeast bread could be done any time but for me it is an Easter Bread.

Hot Tomato Soup with Rice

When I started this blog there was a regular post series called “Soup Sunday“. Pretty soon I realized I can’t post soup every Sunday. Still my love for soup has not diminished. I love soup and eat it often – specially during winter time. So when I started cooking today my hot tomato soup with rice I had left over, I figured why not share a recipe.

When I cook soup I usually don’t do anything fancy but whip up something with ingredients I can find in the fridge and the pantry. Often times it is made of left-overs.
