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.

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.
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.
I receive “The I love Trader Joe’s Vegetarian Cookbook” the other day in the mail and it was a perfect week for that. Because once a month I am doing a Veggie Week and it sometimes is difficult to find a meal for supper. Now I’ve got a book load full of recipes.
If you’ve been to the Farmers Market in Saskatoon before you probably know of Bill and Giuseppi’s. They have the best lemonade by far in town and serve quiche, burgers, sandwiches and soup. Bill opened his new restaurant this past Saturday, September 8th on 20th Street and we went to check it out.
The other day I was working on a list of German foods for work and I came across the Onion Tart. Immediately I thought I should make this and googled a recipe. Although I had envisioned something else when I first heard Onion Tart, the version I present here is pretty good as well.
Sometimes, as a food blogger, I am wondering how many people I reach and what kind of influence I have. Ok, I know how many people I reach thanks to the “My Stats” page on WordPress. And yes, on can get obsessed with those little gadgets, checking back so often to see if more people have visited me. But besides that, I am also wondering about how people perceive my page. Do they see it as a resource for recipes? As and inspiration to get into the kitchen and bake/cook? Are they attracted by the pictures or rather disgusted? (Some people don’t like food, right? Or at least not desserts.)
