Regularly I long for cake, but we don’t consume much cake in a 2-person household. Also a freshly baked cake tastes much better, then one that gets stale after days on the counter. So I longed for cake and had some eggnog left, so I decided to give cakes in jars finally a try! Now I cannot imagine anything more convenient! Instead of using a large baking pan you use […]

First tomato jam sounds strange, doesn’t it? I thought so, too. But then I had a large bunch of tomatoes, which needed to be processed and I thought why not try it? I’m open for experiments and when you make some research tomato jam isn’t the fancied thing in some countries, but an old hat. The jam tastes great with cheese! A really divine combination. And in winter you bring […]

Last year I made a batch of barbecue sauce with peaches. Unfortunately I couldn’t manage it with the peaches last summer and so in autumn the barbecue sauce in stock looked very meager. Then in November I was invited to a whisky event and after that I was able to experiment with the smoky Single Malt Whisky Ardmore. And nothing fit better than to refine my barbecue sauce with that […]

Marisa writes about this recipe that you want to put these onions on everything as soon as you have them in you pantry. And she is totally right! Caramelized red onions are the best, anyway. And if they are available anytime then, well. I already discovered a lot of great possibilites to use the relish and I will soon introduce you to more over-the-moon homemade pantry-staples, which you should always […]

Some time ago I told you that I love to have breakfast. Just, I don’t have time for that. I want to sleep instead. At least in the week. So mostly I eat a yogurt at work and that’s it. That’s ok, but not the best. And because I’m a bit fastidious demanding about yogurt (don’t buy the big brands, no fruit pieces, no softened granola, no artifical flavours, so […]

Summer time, pickling time! Well, I already told you so, didn’t I? I can’t say it often enough ;). The second year I made pickled cucumbers, because the batch of last year was THAT good! Seriously you won’t consider buying pickles again! The only flaw: you have to wait one month until they are infused and are ready to eat. But hey, then you can enjoy them all year long!  […]

Rhubarb jelly was a true discovery for me last year and since then I cannot imagine my jam pantry without it. I prefer mostly jams, which feature the main flavour of the fruit and not ones that are mixed with five other fruits and ingredients. I want to taste every ingredients and assign it properly. Therefore I do not favour four-berry-jams and stuff like that. Rarely there is a combination […]

Mostly I use clarified butter for cooking and roasting. My grandmother gave me the good advice to use only clarified butter for cooking. And she cooked really great, she knew what she was talking of! I also love the taste of butter without burning it. I like cooking with clarified butter much better than with sunflower or olive oil. Not just because I think it’s easier to use, but also […]
