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.

One of my first baking experiences, besides a simple cake, were muffins. I love muffins! They are simple and versatile and fun! Of course there is this rivalry with Cupcakes, but often I find cupcakes too sweet. Muffins on the other hand can be savoury as well. This recipe isn’t, but it’s on my “Baking Bucket List” to make a savoury muffin one day.
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.
This week we invited some friends out for supper to thank them for helping out last October. We set up the Fondue since we haven’t done that in a while and it’s a lot of fun. You can eat while you talk and not stuff yourself like crazy. The challenge was dessert because one of your friends is living gluten free.
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 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.
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.
