A Perfect Burger


Today I visited my mother as we wanted to cook something together. We decided to make burgers. We both think that the burgers of the known fast food chains are not very special, they taste a little bit like cardboard or something as drily. But creating our own hamburger? We never did that, it’s simply not that common here. To be honest, I pretty much like the idea of eating burgers, at least if they are freshly made somewhere, but not those you get from the very well-known big fast food chains. So, we though we should try to make … Continue reading A Perfect Burger

Barbecue Time


Yesterday we decided to have a barbecue in the evening. We drove to our garden, the weather was mixed with rain and sun. Pretty crazy and choppy, it changed every 20 minutes from sunny day to rainy, really crazy. But we have a roofed area and a garden house anyway so that the rain didn’t stop us to start the barbecue. We didn’t prepare our own salad, this time we did buy some of these ready-made salads in a store. However, they were not bad either. We had potato salad, but we also had a salad called “Party Salad”, that … Continue reading Barbecue Time

I Should Cook More Often


Above you can see a dish that I cooked yesterday. I made meatballs stuffed with ewe’s cheese. I did eat it with noodles and gravy. I used ground beef and ground pork, I added one egg, ketchup, mustard, freshly sliced onions and fresh parsley. I added some salt and pepper and breadcrumbs. Then I did knead everything together and started to form meatballs. I am not sure if this is different elsewhere, but that’s how most people do it in Germany. The only thing that was not so German about my meatballs is that I stuffed ewe’s cheese into them … Continue reading I Should Cook More Often

My Special Pasta Bolognese


I am not one of those who can conjure the greatest dishes in the kitchen. What I mean is that I don’t really know how this and that is done, which means the list of dishes that I can cook is rather small. Apart from that I am too lazy to cook and too lazy to learn other dishes or new things. However, the dishes I can cook, they are perfect, and I know, self-praise is no recommendation. But there are moments when you think you have outdone yourself. Today it happened again, that’s why I am excited right now. … Continue reading My Special Pasta Bolognese

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
