It’s always nice to have some small snacks that you can munch on if you have friends over for a party or movie night. If the snacks are delicious this can be a bit tricky though. If you like everything that is lying around the chances are good you eat too much. These Easy Vegan “Sausage” Snack Rolls are especially delicious and dangerous ;P I think I have eaten half of the plate here… if not more. I had to take an extra walk with the dog at the end of the day. These little things are vegan but neither healthy nor without calories ;P
There is a lot you can do with tomatoes. They are great in a salad, for cooking, and even for baking. Especially in summer, when tomatoes taste best, they are used constantly in my kitchen. Mostly for salads like this tomato salad served with a creamy burrata and toasted bread slices. It’s super easy to prepare and on the table in no time. Perfect as an appetizer or as a snack along with a beer on the terrace. So good ;)
Maybe I am the only one here… maybe not. When you cook one of your favorite dishes – do you get excited just from smelling the spices you add because you know it’s going to be super delicious? Well… when I make this delicious Butter Chicken it is exactly like that. The flavors are soo good! Don’t even get me started on the tenderness of the chicken or I will end up drooling over my laptop while writing about it… :P
February is almost over. This means it’s time for a new “Bake Together – The Baking Surprise” with Zimtkeks & Apfeltarte. Our topic today is something that fits perfectly for the “5th Season” – a term we use here in Germany for Karneval aka. Carnival or Mardi Gras. Today is all about finger food! Simple and easy snack for a party like these Easy (Pork) Sausage Rolls made with puff pastry dough. (Almost) Everyone loves them! (if you are vegetarian or vegan – the recipe can be adapted easily) ;)
Fall is the perfect time for some hearty dishes. Something to warm you up and keep you warm for some time. In the area where I am coming from in the south of Germany, we have a lot of these dishes and I am loving each and every one of them since I am a kid. One quite popular stew is called “Saure Linsen mit Spätzle und Wienerle” aka. Sour Lentil Stew with Spätzle and Sausages. Really good. It’s one of my favorite dishes my grandma loved to make ;)
There are some dishes that are soooo good that everyone should have them in their cooking repertoire. For people who like to eat meat, for example, this is Slow Braised Beef Ragout with Pasta is a dish you should know how to make. It takes some time to prepare (that’s why it’s called slow-braised), but worth every minute you invest ;) We might not eat as much meat as we did in the past, but whenever we want something meaty – this is almost always the first dish we can think of to do ;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 ;)
