The moment the first warm rays of sunshine hit Berlin at the beginning of summer you know it’s time for rhubarb to make a comeback ;) The red-green stalks pop up everywhere – waiting for you to do something with them. The first thing that might come up, in that case, is baking a cake with rhubarb. Obvious. But how about making some Homemade Rhubarb Curd and doing something with that to celebrate rhubarb season? Something like these delicious Popovers with Rhubarb Curd and Strawberries? Super easy to make and really tasty. Something your guests will reach out and grab several times ;P
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
I think brownies are a popular sweet treat all over the world. Lovely chocolate flavor and a great texture (if the brownies are baked properly)… simply delicious! If only you could avoid those dirty fingers every time you grab a brownie ;) I know there are forks you could use, but who does that?! The easiest solution for this “problem” are probably these Brownies on Sticks (with Oreos). Brownies that can be eaten like popsicles. No chance to get dirty fingers. All clean. All day ;P
Brownies are something almost everyone likes. I bet these delicious Oreo Brownie Chocolates (Pralines) will get the same attention when served… probably even more ;) They are small, cute, and super chocolaty – so small nobody will notice you grabbed one from the plate with the sweets. At least that is what’s happening here at home. Gone in a hot second and never seen again. Well, unless you make another batch ;)
I guess… if you like to cook and bake as much as I do, you normally have something prepared when guests come over, right? Whenever I got someone coming to our place for a movie or game night I love to prepare stuff I normally don’t do (during the week). Snacks that are great for a crowd but not perfect if you are only two at home. Snacks like these Potato Skins with Bacon & Cheese, for example. Absolutely divine but a bit much if you want to eat all of them alone ;P
What’s the most important thing you need when you have friends or family over on your terrace? Drinks? Well… yes, but what about food? Most definitely! ;P I think snacks are more important than drinks. I am fine with water only if I get some olives to nibble on or nice bread and something to dip ;) That’s why I always have stuff like that at home or at least, the ingredients to make something like this Feta Spread with Sun-dried Tomatoes. Nobody sits on my terrace without anything to eat ;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 ;)
