A couple of weeks ago there was a wedding at my parents-in-law acreage. For an easy lunch my mother-in-law made some pulled pork and served it with some side salad. It’s easy to eat while running around and doing some things. I was amazed by the flavour, not just of the pork but also my the soup that was left over as a result.

Like every family, mine has certain dishes that are a staple. It’s those dishes that identify us as a family. Many have been handed down generations, some are fairly new. My mother like to experiment with new things, but she also liked to serve those classics that work with everyone. Such a dish are Stuff Bell Peppers.
Sometimes it needs only one item or ingredients to come up with something quite delicious. That exact same thing happened to me the other day, for breakfast, on a Saturday. Simple things make life wonderful.
The other day I made a simple dinner with ham, vegetables and mashed potatoes. I thought I would share our family recipe with you because I think it’s different from what most people make.
A week or so ago I talked to my mother in Germany and she told me what she made for Christmas. In our family, Christmas supper depends on the person who is hosting it. So each year will be different. She told me what her dessert was and since we are invited over to a friends house I thought I would make the same dessert: Panna Cotta.
I was fairly busy the last days, not with cooking and baking but with other stuff. I barely had time to actually sit down and take care of pictures and posts. Sorry about that. However, I do have a couple of things lined up for you. Lets get started on a fairly simple supper or lunch dish: Potato Gratin.
When you think of starches for your lunch or supper most of the time one of these come to mind: potatoes, noodles, or rice. But there is another option Germans, especially those in the South, as well as Austrians go for: Spätzle. This particular dish has gained attention in North America as well and I know of some restaurants who serve it here in Saskatoon.
January is kind of slow when it comes to baking. Christmas is just behind us and there a still some lingering cookies here and there. So, a bit more focus on the cooking side might be not too bad an idea. That’s where this recipe comes in. It’s simple and quick and delicious and, well, you get the point.
Welcome to the new year, 2013. I hope you had a good New Year’s Eve and that you will have a wonderful new year. May all you wish for come true and that you stay healthy and happy.
We were invited to a New Year’s Eve party, which was also a potluck. Honestly, I had not much inspiration so I wanted to do something simple. Deviled eggs fall definitely under that category.
Lately my life has been busier than ever and I try to keep the regular life things as simple as possible. That’s also true for potluck cooking and the last visit to Germany gave me the perfect idea. My mother made the same dish for my birthday and it was a big hit.
