It’s all about flavor.

Easy homemade focaccia

German recipe below Like many other hobby bakers, I’ve recently looked into making my own bread. You can bake a delicious focaccia without many tools, so that is what I decided on. For the first try, I made a simple version with rosemary, for the second I added dried tomatoes, black olives and mozzarella. TheContinue reading “Easy homemade focaccia”

One-Pot Pastalaya Stew

German recipe below This recipe is inspired by one of my most-used cookbooks, “The American Cookbook” by Caroline Bretherton. The original recipe required quite a few spices and also uses shrimp which my husband doesn’t eat, so I’ve simplified it. You can also deviate from my version and use any proteins and vegetables that youContinue reading “One-Pot Pastalaya Stew”

Apple Peach Crumble

German recipe below Is there anything better on a rainy day than a hot sweet treat right from the oven? For a slightly more complex crumble, I like to mix two kinds of fruit, but if you just have apples on hand, this will taste great as well. This recipe makes about four portions ifContinue reading “Apple Peach Crumble”

Weeknight tuna penne

Depending on how much sauce you like on your pasta, you should have enough for three to four generous helpings. It also freezes and reheats well. What you will need – 300 -350Continue reading “Weeknight tuna penne”

If you don’t like spice at all or are making this recipe with kids, you can also omit the hot sauce for the chickpeas and add some driedContinue reading “Crispy Chickpea Wraps”

Turkish Lentil Soup

Their recipe for an Anatolian recipe makes a wonderful soup that hits all the right spots: Colorful, packed with flavor and supereasy to make! I served it with some store-bought pita bread for a light lunch. ThisContinue reading “Turkish Lentil Soup”

Fluffy cinnamon buns

Make sure to factor in enough time for your dough to rise several times to get really fluffy buns. The recipe makes about 12 pieces. What you willContinue reading “Fluffy cinnamon buns”

Comforting “Kaiserschmarrn” Pancake bites

Whether it’s pancakes, waffles or crépes – sweet main dishes have a special place in my heart. They’re great comfort foods and come together with pantry staples. “Kaiserschmarrn” is a traditional Austrian dish, my recipe fittingly comes from a small cookbook, Wiener Spezialitäten, which we bought while visiting Vienna (also available on amazon). The recipeContinue reading “Comforting “Kaiserschmarrn” Pancake bites”

My favorite lasagna recipe

This recipe easily makes enough lasagna for six people – if your household is smaller or you don’t want leftovers for a couple of days (but then again, who doesn’t love leftovers?), I recommend sizing down the ingredients. Personally, I also like a very pasta-heavy lasagna, unlike what you will get in most restaurants. IfContinue reading “My favorite lasagna recipe”
