I am so loving this dessert. I actually only eat it at Christmas time when we are all together with the family believe it or not. And it never fails to make me happy. This Tiramisu can be enjoyed by everyone in the family as there is no alcohol in it. The ingredients are very basic and its so easy to put together. What you need: 200 g Cream (I suggest double cream or whipping cream) 250 g Mascarpone 250 g Quark 100 g Sugar 200 g Spiced Biscuits (crumbled into small chunks) 400 g Mixed Berries (I used only…

I tried over a very long time to make the perfect scrambled eggs fluffy and light; I think I finally perfected them. The secret is so simple: “beat the egg as if there is no tomorrow”. The more air is in the eggs, the more fluff will end up on your plate. What you need: (4-6 people) 8 eggs 1/2 cup of milk (or 125 ml) 2 Tbsp Butter or margarine Salt and Pepper to taste What you need to do: Crack the eggs into a bowl Beat the eggs, preferably with an electric whisk, until they are nicely combined…

When we grow up, many of us like to remember the times when we were kids and visited the grand parents. I personally remember my grans breakfast and lunches, as she for sure made some very memorable dishes for me and my sister. Many of those we are still making to date as they are just so tasty. It surely will never taste as good as it did back then when we were sitting together at her kitchen table, but it brings back the wonderful memories.  In this blog post I am sharing with you my granny’s Green Bean Stew….

This recipe is a winner on every dinner table. I know that the red cabbage is more widely used in salads or pickled in vinegar outside Germany. However, there is this one special way of making this cabbage really tasty. cooked red cabbage is for me always an absolute must have during the winter months and especially during the festive period.It’s easy to prepare and will just cook away for 2 hours while you can work on other things. What you need: 1 x medium to large red cabbage 3 x medium to large white onions very thinly diced 3…

I was usually a bit skeptical when it comes to backing with beans. But I guess I was nosy at the same time and checked out a few recipes that are out there. These muffins not only taste absolutely amazing they also are gluten and dairy free and you can of course make them sugar free as well. For sure not the last time I made these and not the last time i baked with beans. This opens a whole new door of ideas… I am using a miniature muffin tray for this recipe, as I am a fan of  bite…

These chilli & thyme oven-baked chips are just so delicious. I made them as a weekend dinner. I cannot say often enough how much better homemade chips are compared to what you buy off the super market shelves and it’s such an easy to make dish. Best though is that you can decide what flavour you prefer them to be and you know exactly what’s in it! Recipe below for you to try this at home and maybe make it your own little creation by adding something else? You can get super creative with this recipe for sure.    …

This cake is a definite show stopper if you have family and friends around. I made it several times over the past years and it never let me down. It has a light fluffy consistency but don’t be fooled by that, because this cake got calories!! So best to stop the diet for the day and simply enjoy this beauty. So, believe me when I say I am a typical German and I definitely love the large cakes. However, it was time to re-design the original cake and go from a large 26 cm round cake tin to a smaller…

This is by far my favorite oat snack recipe of them all at the moment. These are a must have in my house these days and they are so easy to make. I have to say that all of the energy bites I made in recent months have now completely replaced any kind of ordinary chocolates or cookies that you can buy off the supermarket shelves. Simply because, these are so much more tasty and they are better for you as well. So I really hope I can inspire you with this little recipe post and you give it a…
