I always wanted to make some Truffles but never got around to do it. Several pages like Sumptuous Spoonfuls have some lovely ideas on how to go about it. So here I am, making Truffles.

Book Review: “Poptails” and Triple Berry Treat
Who doesn’t like a cocktail once in a while? Especially when you are out with some company in a nice little bar. At home though, no one really mixes is own cocktails, unless you have an awesome bar in your house or you are a bartender. Yet, once in a while you wish you could do that for a party you are giving. Regular cocktails though a bit boring. Fear not! “Poptails – 60 Boozy Treats Served on a Stick” will surely help you out.
Canning Apple Sauce – No Washing Machine required
Did you ever can before? In my 28 years I’ve never done it though I remember my mother doing that. Living in the GDR that was the way to preserve things from your garden. The more you canned the less you had to buy. So, when my mother-in-law offered some apples I jumped to the opportunity and said yes.
Today, I will tell you how to make Crème fraîche. You might wonder what that is, well, it’s something like whipping cream, but thicker. I guess. Ahhh, the wonders of Dairy Products are great and I love to broaden your perspective.
Egg Salad on Toast
I know, I know, this is so basic, but it’s ohh so good. Egg salad on toast is one of my favourite dishes, I guess it’s one of those childhood memories. I am sure everyone else has something like that, something that was made by your mom, grandma, or your aunt.
Book review “Grace’s Sweet Life” and Tiramisu
A while ago I received a copy of Grace’s Sweet Life, which was written by Grace Massa-Langlois an Italian-Canadian baker. While I am mostly concentrating on German and North American recipes I was intrigue by the book. Italy has very unique desserts and many are known throughout the world. Tiramisu being one of those desserts. Btw, this is a rather lengthy post.
Chocolate Covered Bacon
This one does not involve any baking, it rather involves some cooking but the result might be used for baking. I am not even sure how I came about this one, I might have been inspired by the “National Chocolate Covered Anything Day”. Yes, you read that right, on December 16th you can celebrate this very delicious holiday and completely feel guild free when eating. If I didn’t see it there I might have stumble across it somewhere online, or I saw it on TV? It doesn’t matter, I thought it genius and wanted to try it.
You don’t speak German to understand, well, here’s the English word for word translation: chocolate kisses. No, not Hershey’s Kisses… The dictionary says: chocolate marshmallows or small chocolate-covered cream cake. But neither of those do the thing justice. So the only thing I can think of is giving you the German name…and a pictures of course. Those are the ones I made but they are not looking like the ones from the store, obviously. It’s a bit tricky but stay with me because it’s a fun and different treat.
