Bagels are a delicious option for breakfast and lunch. On days when I am too lazy to cook, I also like them for dinner. They are great and you can top them with so many things! Bagels are also great for a party or a buffet… if you bake them a bit smaller than usual ;) Regular-sized bagels are probably not the best finger food – but these Mini “Everything” Bagels are definitely great for that. Especially, when topped with some cream cheese and smoked salmon… so good!
It’s time for another banana bread. Haven’t made one in a long time. At least two weeks ;) Today I got a delicious specimen with honey, oats, and pecans. This one is considered to be slightly “healthier” than other banana bread recipes I got here on the blog. No refined sugar and wholemeal spelt flour instead of regular a/p flour. Don’t worry… it still tastes good and not “healthy” ;P
I love bread. I eat it every day ;) These Turkish Bread Rings are very high on my all-time favorites list of bread. So soft and fluffy! We used to pick them up quite regularly at a Turkish supermarket when we stocked up on dips and olives – another thing I eat almost every day ;P For a long time I had no clue that this type of bread is called “Açma”. I also did not know how easy you can make it at home. Well… whenever we have some time now, these bread rings are baked at home instead of buying them at the supermarket. Really, who does not love fresh homemade bread?! ;)
I am not the biggest fan of soups, to be honest. In Germany, we even have a name for people like me based on a fairytale – “Suppenkasper”. The translation would be more or less a “soup clown”. Not very flattering ;P Well… it’s actually only a specific type of soups I don’t like. This delicious Salmorejo Cordobés, a cold Spanish tomato, and bread soup, I love very much. It’s the best thing to make and eat on a hot summer day. So refreshing!
The month of June is coming to an end… time for another “Bake Together” with Andrea from Zimtkeks & Apfeltarte. We already had several nice summer days here in Germany so it’s time to heat up the grill and get the next bbq party going on. Not without a delicious Focaccia with Tomatoes, Garlic, and Thyme. The perfect companion for everything grilled. No summer party is perfect without it… at least in my opinion ;)
Sometimes you just don’t feel like standing in the kitchen for a long time and cooking an elaborate dinner. I write “sometimes”, but actually mean “almost always” ;P After a long day in the kitchen I often just do not feel like spending even more time at the stove to prepare a whole dinner. In those moments, simple melts are a great solution. Chickpeas and tomatoes end up on a piece of bread, with some cheese on top – that’s all you need. Perfect for a lazy person like me ;P
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 ;)
