As soon as rhubarb is available at the farmer’s market in spring, the world is a little better again ;) I am a big rhubarb fan and look forward to this delicious veggie to come back in March/April of every year. There is so much you can do with these red-green stalks – for example, this delicious Rhubarb Frangipane Galette. Perfect for the first coffee party with family and friends in the warming spring sun ;)
Easter is the time for yeast bakes. Easter would be impossible without a Sweet Braided Loaf or a Classic German Easter Bread like this one here. At least in our family. Those bakes are necessary for Easter like Christmas cookies are for Christmas ;) Our Easter breakfast/brunch would not be perfect without it. To make things easier you can prepare the dough in advance and bake the braided loaf or bread the next morning. Preparing the dough does not take long – it needs quite some time to rise… that’s all. Same for all yeast bakes ;P
Dunno how you feel about it, but I really love cakes with cherries. So good! Unfortunately, those little red fellas are not available all year round. At least not if you want to get them from a local farmer, for example. But… that does not mean you can’t make this delicious Easy Cheesecake with Cherries all year round. Luckily, this cake works perfect with frozen cherries… and those are available all year round if you prepared some during summer. Means cherry cakes all year round. I could not think of a better way to celebrate the hopefully soon coming summer ;P
In times, I am not sure what to cook, a delicious stew is often the first (and most often best) choice. A few ingredients are thrown into a large pot, you let them cook/brown a bit to get some nice flavors, and then you add broth or something similar. A short time later you got yourself a delicious meal ready to be served. This simple Sausage, Potato & White Jumbo Bean Stew also follows this principle. Everything is done in one pot and super easy to do. You can enjoy the stew on a cold day as well as on warm days – always great! ;)
I’m a big fan of cheesecakes – everyone around me knows that. Don’t really care if the cheesecake was baked or, as in this case, just had to chill in the fridge for a while. All great! I have to admit, though, that a No-Bake Cinnamon Roll Cheesecake like this one here does have some advantages… especially when you have various other things on your to-do list and can’t focus your attention on just one thing. When baking for small and/or large festivities there is always a lot to do – so not having to worry about a showstopper like this one is always great ;P
If you like to eat carbs in the evening and want them to be quickly on your plate – search no more – I got the perfect dish for you: One Pot Pastalaya. A large enough pot to feed many hungry family members. A super easy recipe that’s perfect for weeknight dinners. Perfectly seasoned with a homemade creole spice mix. So good!
Hi, my name is Marc. I'm a graphic designer.
I love my job, but in between I love to bake and try new things in the kitchen. A lot of my friends and colleagues encourage me to bake - for a very simple reason: they get the leftovers - and it seems they like it most of the time ;)
