At the top, you see a photo of a very classical and traditional Northern German dish. It’s kale with fried potatoes, smoked pork chop, and smoked sausage. I’d argue if you ever been to Northern Germany during the cold days but didn’t eat “Grünkohl” (kale) as we call it, you absolutely didn’t experience Northern Germany. 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
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
Above you can see another dish that the husband of my mother did cook. The ingredients are potatos, beef, paprika, carrots, onions, red cabbage and sauce. I love that so much. The onions, the paprika and the carrots are made together with the sauce. The secret here is that the flavors of the ingredients go directly into the sauce. If I visit them and if we eat that meal, I usually ask for extra carrots on my plate because I love cooked carrots so much. What you see on the image, is typical german cuisine. Very hefty and extremely tasty! Continue reading Hefty And Tasty German Cuisine… Looks Tempting?

The photo is a little bit older but I still have so many photos in my folders and I really want to save and share them all on my blog. I must say, looking on this photo makes me hungry. Continue reading Noodles With Sauce, Steak and Vegetables
Above you can see beef with potatoes, paprika, sprouts and a tasty sauce. The mother of my husband did cook it some time ago but the image is a little bit older. I still have so many photos here, and I want to save them on my blog, for the future. The husband of my mother is not a cook by profession but he is anyway a very good cook but specialized in german cuisine. I always said to him, he should open a restaurant because his dishes are so delicious but well, he has already a job and he … Continue reading Yet Again Another German Dish
It´s not a secret that I am german and it is not a secret that germans love Bratwurst and mustard. We have many different types of brats. If you need a fast meal when you are outside, it is always convenient if there is a bratwurst stall on your way. The Bratwurst on the image above was pretty expansive. I was shocked when the salesmen said I should pay 6 Euro (8 USD converted) for the tiniest Coca Cola bottle and the Bratwurst. That means 4 dollar for each! Anyway, the Bratwurst was as always tasty and a good snack … Continue reading Here Another Tasty Bratwurst…
