Dessert is my favorite meal. It could be! right? with all the eggs, milk and goodness. favorite would be pastries! I have a serious aversion to Butter Cream icing and have NEVER had any I liked. It's just so sweet. Most German pastries don't have alot of sugar and even cakes revovle around… MORE

Gurken are cucumbers, generally the english ones (no seeds). A wonderful refreshing side dish that I had so often growing up. I didn't know you could do anything else with a cucumber for the longest time, lol. This isn't a time consuming recipe but trust me when I say the more this marinates… MORE

Week #6,  Oh boy I am behind. I am working on catching up. My stove got sick and the medicine is on backorder. Amazing how all of a sudden my mind became a complete blank as I attempted to come up with dinner ideas. Funnily though it seems we don’t bake everything and we have survived a whole MORE

Speatzle              Speatzle dough is very similar to pfannkucken (pancakes) dough. When I actually had that light bulb moment that these recipes are pretty close, I couldn’t figure out why.  I mean why a noodle recipe would and a pancake recipe is so similar? I believe speatzle have been… MORE

German cuisine is different in many ways. We don’t deep fry anything that I’m aware of. We used senf, mustard, instead of ketchup. There is pancake soup and all those sausages. The variety of sausage alone could mystify although some of them seem pretty gross to me. The main meal MORE

About Me
I am married to my high school sweety and we have 3 boys, in their teens. I have been cooking since I was a young girl and learned to cook by sight.It had to look "right" . That is still how my mom gives directions for recipes. I am of German descent and hope to increase my german cooking/baking repretoire.
My favorite things to cook
Pastries and german cuisine are my tendencies. I love trying new things. I love fresh baked bread, yummm.
My favorite family cooking traditions
German pancakes, Paprika schnitzel and speatzle,
My cooking triumphs
Tiramasu Cake...yummm!!! everyone always requests it. I absolutly love that people love something I made.
My cooking tragedies
My sister raved to some German ladies that I made "out of this world" German Cheesecake. I made them a cake, since they HAD to try it. Turns out I forgot the sugar, no one ate it. I am still embarrased about that. Definetly a lesson learned.
