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.➢ KEEP ON READING
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.➢ KEEP ON READINg
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.➢ KEEP ON READING
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.➢KEEP ON ReadING
Do you have the luxury of an own garden? If so you are probably in high BBQ season. We only BBQ with friends in their garden or when in the country home. So I hardly have the chance to enjoy the delicious food. But we did bbq this year and while I’m usually in charge of dessert this time around that was already covered. So I decided to make some homemade bbq dips. And let me tell you it was yum.➢ Keep on ReadING
