Grünkohl


In winter it’s basically a winter custom here in Northern Germany to eat Grünkohl (kale or leaf cabbage). It might have something to do with the fact that kale is harvested after the first autumn frost, which means you get it during the cold seasons on the table. Grandma invited me yesterday because she prepared Grünkohl, Kassler (smoked pork chop) and Kohlwurst (cooked sausage). Together we just call it Grünkohlessen (eating kale). That’s the usual combination and of course you eat it with cooked potatoes or fried potatoes. The good thing is, you can eat it on the second day … Continue reading Grünkohl

Mutzen


Every winter or before Christmas I buy a bag of Mutzen sometimes, and they are tasty small biscuits. I am not a great cook and I can’t give you an exact recipe but as far as I know they are made of flour, eggs and sugar. The pastry is put into hot oil and the result are those cute and tasty looking pastry balls. Mutzen are a Rhenish recipe as I have read, and it was a traditional biscuit for carnival and new year’s eve. But that just seems to be the history of it, but today you will probably … Continue reading Mutzen

Tasty French Fries For The Almost Flat Belly


Today I went to a takeaway with my mother because we got the idea to eat french fries. My mother wanted them with ketchup and I got mine with mayonnaise because I love mayonnaise. It was very tasty, and I just allowed myself to eat it. As I previously mentioned, I had the plan to make more sports and to shrink my belly by doing so. I didn’t want to change my nutrition too much, but I definitely experimented with low-calorie food and I do now only drink water instead of ice tea. With that said, I did some things … Continue reading Tasty French Fries For The Almost Flat Belly

Tasty Bulgur Salad


I like to eat some Turkish and Arabic meals and side dishes. I do for example like Bulgur salad. I have a Turkish fruit dealer around the corner and I know this family since a very long time. Years ago when I bought fruits, she suggested me to try her Turkish Bulgur salad. I said that it would look like Cous Cous and that I really love Cous Cous, but she replied that it would be similar, just still not the same. I got a small box filled with Bulgur for free, including the suggestion to put it on lettuce … Continue reading Tasty Bulgur Salad

The Pancake Issue


My uncle, my mother and me sat together some days ago and we decided to make pancakes. To be more exact, my mother made the pancakes because I am way too stupid to make them. It’s not that I don’t know how to make them, it’s just that my pancakes would look like noodles on the plate, because I never managed it to get them in one piece on the plate. You think it’s impossible to destroy pancakes before they land on the plate? My mother thinks that too and always chuckles when she hears about my problems with making … Continue reading The Pancake Issue

Salad Time


You can probably find a lot of posts on my blog where I praise salads, but well, here we go again. I am a real fan of salads with tomatoes, cucumbers, onions and so on. Grandma did it already, my mother too, and even I as a kitchen noob can do it because it’s just like slicing and throwing the ingredients into a big bowl (laugh). A few days ago, me and my mother were hungry but it was very sunny and warm when we sat at her balcony and we decided to eat salad. As always, this was also … Continue reading Salad Time
