Tasty German Barbecue Combination


Above you can see a very typical German barbecue combination. Not that every German barbecue plate would look like the one on the photo, but I´d say you would at least always find sauerkraut and potato salad on the table, and meat or other things for sure. I used garlic dip and herb butter to make my steak even more delicious. I am a big fan of barbecues. I always laugh when people can´t await to put the meat on fire but when we are finished, people look totally exhausted because they did eat way too much. But if there … Continue reading Tasty German Barbecue Combination

Super Tasty Salad


Not sure how often I mentioned it, but I suffer from salad addiction. Ok, this is partly a lie. I am addicted to salads but I don´t really suffer, I rather enjoy salads. On the photo above you can see a salad that my mother made. It´s a tomato salad. You could also call it tomato and onion salad. If there is a reason why there are so many onions in the salad, then because my mother loves onions, well, I love them too. Some of my friends would probably say “Oh there are too many onions!”. Salads are a … Continue reading Super Tasty Salad

Grilled Wienerwürstchen


Above you can see a sausage that we call “Wiener Würstchen” here in Germany and I think the English name is “Vienna sausage”. You can eat this sausage raw but usually people boil it and this is tasty too. But even as a German, it was new to me that some Germans do actually grill this sausage. The husband of my mother was born in East Germany and he told me that they usually did grill the “Wiener Würstchen”. I didn´t know how it would taste like but he is right, it´s fantastic and delicious too if it´s grilled. If … Continue reading Grilled Wienerwürstchen

Bulgur Salad, The Perfect Dish For Warm Weather


From one day to the other the weather changed from rainy weather to hot weather. It´s at the moment very warm and I really dislike to eat warm dishes when the weather is so warm. I prefer colder dishes as salads then. One of my favorite salads is the Bulgur salad that the woman of the Turkish fruit dealer creates. I think I wrote about it already but I have some new photos and thought I do it again. Bulgur is made of durum wheat as she told me and it is often used in Turkey, she said. She said … Continue reading Bulgur Salad, The Perfect Dish For Warm Weather

Chili Con Carne Fire Edition And Some Talk About Spicy Food In General


I think I didn´t talk much about it here but I have a huge passion for hot and spicy food. Fifteen years ago or more, my family had friends (or let me say someone did marry into our family) which had Tunisian roots or let me simply say they were Arabs. So, sometimes on weekends we did sit together to have a chat and either we did cook or they, depending who was the host. I was still teenager at that time and when we did eat Arabic food, it felt like flying with a rocket to the moon, so … Continue reading Chili Con Carne Fire Edition And Some Talk About Spicy Food In General

Photo Gallery: German Barbecue Fun With The Family


My mother, her husband and me drove to Salem today, to visit my grandma and grandpa, my uncle and aunt and their kids. They have a caravan site there in the nature as I mentioned already a few times on my blog. They have this spot since decades when I was still a child. It´s basically a place where you can relax in the nature near the forests and the lakes if the warm season starts. But I think I mentioned often and you can find all the stories about Salem on my blog. Long story short… we met each … Continue reading Photo Gallery: German Barbecue Fun With The Family
