This bread wandered around in the english bloggersphere for months and after ignoring it first, I took a chance, bought some ingredients and baked it. Two times. It’s just that good. Sarah from My New Roots says it’s life changing. I can’t disagree. First I was quite sceptical, if this bread tastes good and if it tastes like bread after all. But after the first bite I didn’t even realized […]

This recipe is on my blog list for a few weeks already, but since there are still a lot of beans in the garden it’s still in time! I really love green beans, but I’m still pondering what to do with them than the normal green bean dishes and green bean salad. The internet isn’t much help either since recipes with green beans don’t vary that much. In Simon Bryants […]

I love love love this ice cream with peanutbutter and crunchy chocolate chips! And I love the book from which the recipe is, which is Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream at Home by Jeni Britton Bauer. I already recommended you this book last year and now at the peak of ice cream season I’m recommending it again strongly! For a more detailed review of the book hop over to the Kuriositätenladen, […]

Actually I wanted to blog more asparagus recipe this season, but I just didn’t manage to do it! Soon the asparagus season will be over again, but maybe this year it will be delayed a bit, because it was so cold and rainy? I would love that, since it was more difficult to get green asparagus this year. This recipe is amongst our favourite ones with green asparagus. It’s from […]

Some months ago Heidi blogged this wonderful salad on 101 cookbooks. Originally named the greenest salad, because you can’t make it any greener than this. This salad combines vegetables, fruits (yes, avocados are berries!) and nuts for a dish which sticks out for its different aromas and textures. Therefore it’s just more than a green salad, it’s greener than green, the greenest salad it is. If you are struggling to […]

We hadn’t sweet dishes here for a while now, not to mention cookies. That has to change immediately! We are going straight to cookie season, that’s a fact (and I will give you some recipes then, indeed), but this is a recipe, which you can make throughout the year. These cookies aren’t just cookies, these are the luxury version of the famous chocolate chip cookies! The idea is from Joy […]

After a long abstinence of recipes, I have this delicious potato terrine with goats cheese, basil and pine nuts for you! I made this a couple of weeks ago for our brunch and it was one of my favourite dishes on this day. I love to brunch. To go brunching, as well as to host a brunch. Unfortunately Stuttgart isn’t a brunching town, except you want to go to expensive […]

 We harvested well enough beetroots from our vegetable patch, yet. We love beetroot, but as it happens with a lot of vegetables that are abundant, you don’t know where to put them or what to make out of them anymore. Luckily I stumbled upon Petra’s blog entry. Beetroot gnocchi! As a huge fan of gnocchi I surely had to make them. Truly it was a bit of an effort to […]

Fighting the zucchini glut and making use of leftovers, that’s this bread, which is super delicious and moist, too. Zucchini and bananas make the bread moist, without noticing both in flavour. Cinnamon and mixed spices (or pumpkin pie spice) bring the right flavour. Although it might not be the right season for these spices yet, the rain and the cold wind make me feel like it is. Pecans are making […]

I made this for my exchange partner Jasmin from Elbmadame for the current issue of “Post aus meiner Küche” ( “Mail from my kitchen”) with the theme Very Berry! Jasmin already blogged about my parcel here! She really liked it and that makes me very very happy. Very Berry is a great theme, but also difficult to put into practice, if you want to send it by mail. Berries are […]

This recipe moved quickly after it’s first baking into my classic repertoire. I’m now making it since years and every time when it’s rhubarb season this dish is the first to be made. In this recipe rhubarb is likely to be loved by everyone. The scoop of ice cream is not mandatory, it’s a must, because the crumble tastes a lot of better with the ice cream. Probably because of […]

  One of the first thoughts I had, when we where back home after our vacation was: ” what is a good gift for our neighbours for sitting our apartment and caring for our plants for 6 weeks”. Something home made of course. Since I’m in possession of Nicole Stich’s fabulous book Geschenkideen aus der Küche (yet, only in German) this question is much more easy to answer. So after […]
