Food photos from my Germany trip

I spent 3.5 months in Germany, from October 2014 to mid January 2015. I also took a trip to Graz, Austria and Prague, Czech Republic. The following pictures were taken during that time, all with my smart phone camera. As a result, some pictures are not too well light, over exposed due to the flash, or grainy due to the lack of light. I was able to get some nice pictures but not all are awesome. Yet, I felt I should show them anyway, it was a fun trip with awesome food after all.

Applesauce Muffins

It’s alsmost the first day of fall but frankly, I have been in fall mode for at least a week. I love this season because I was born in October and falling leaves, changing colour, and the slightly cool and crisp air with some sunshine just get to me. Apples of course play a big role in fall so here we go with another apple recipe.

Nectarine Biscuit Cake

By now you are, hopefully, aware that I am of German background. Living in Canada can be a challenge sometimes, especially when it comes to cooking and baking. On the other hand, it is nice to see that you can surprise people with things that you are natural to you, like certain dishes. The past weeks I have become a part of a German-Canadian Baking and Cooking Club and as such I am preparing for a baking class.
