Gingerbread Cookies

I didn’t plan to bake any Christmas cookies this year since we are spending Christmas abroad, but my kids just wouldn’t stop talking about baking gingerbread and kids can be VERY persistent.    

White Bread with Oats

An incredibly soft bread with a rather mild flavor and a large portion of healthy oats.      

Yogurt​ Bread

If you tried and liked my Buttermilk Bread than you will like this one as well. A plain wheat bread, refined with yogurt for extra flavor and freshness.

Buttermilk Bread

This bread here is a simple wheat bread refined with buttermilk, which not only benefits the freshness of the bread but also the flavor. The delicate-sour note makes the small but subtle difference.  

Matjes Herring Tartare

Ash Wednesday marks the end of all New Year’s and Carnival festivities, and the beginning of the 40 days long Lent. The word Carnival derives from Latin “carne vale” – meat, farewell! Religious people are fasting today and abstain from meat. Some people, like myself, use Lent to exercise self – discipline.  I’m giving up desserts, sweets,…

Stuffed Bell Peppers

Sometimes the smallest things have the biggest impact. In this case, a teaspoon of fennel seeds and a few capers turn boring minced meat into this piquant and flavourful dish.

Sonntagsbrot (Sunday Bread)

Richer than a simple wheat bread but not as sweet as a Brioche. I reserve this bread for weekend breakfasts with the family. Butter, strawberry jam or Nutella are my favorite spreads on the Sunday Bread.
