VHS Cassettes, Chips and Salsa


Here is just a snapshot I took with my phone. I did spend quite a bit of time with my mother the last days as we went through several VHS cassettes that our family recorded.

Man, we had a good laugh because the `80s haircuts make our family … Continue reading VHS Cassettes, Chips and Salsa

This is also a very common German dish and extremely tasty. Continue reading Beef Roulade

But as said, it’s a dish you’re more likely to find during the autumn and winter months here, that’s what we call “Grünkohlsaison” (kale season). That’s because back in the days if you wanted fresh kale, you got it from autumn to March. Temperatures down … Continue reading Northern German Cuisine: Grünkohl
