More Food from Our Vacation

Oh boy, oh boy. Three weeks of vacation at home and one adds some pounds. No wonder, we were able to eat some really good food, most delicious. Here are some more pictures from those three days. We have Sushi, Döner, and home made meals in this post. Hope you enjoy it.



Vacation Foods


Leaving on a Jetplane

Tomorrow a little after 2 p.m. this little baker is leaving Canada for the first time since she immigrated in 2010. It means going back to Germany for a three week vacation. As you can imagine, I am happy to go “home”, see the family and meet friends again.

On the other hand, I am a bit…well, scared might not be the right word. Though I am excited I am also thinking about work, and the blog. As the result I have asked several other food blogger and a friend to “take over”. I received 6 guest posts and will post them throughout those 3 weeks.

I looked at the dates and since I am posting every other day I figured I need 11 posts in total to cover those three weeks. This will give me the opportunity to have 5 posts of my own. Yes, although I am on vacation I am very likely to bake. Frankly, my mother insisted I make something for her and her colleagues. She only gets to see what I make but never to taste, it’s only fair.

This is the first time since I started the blog that I leave for such a long period of time. I sincerely hope that you will enjoy the guest posts and that you will visit the bloggers on their webpage or Facebook page and show them that you appreciate the effort.

Thank you to all and I hope I will be able to post some fun German things while I am at home.

Happy baking!

That little bit of fame and a vacation

So, I was on TV, early in the morning. Ok, it was 8.17 a.m. so still manageable but nevertheless, I was on TV. Thank you CTV for having me, it was so much fun and the host Chris made me feel comfortable. Of course I was quite nervous, never done anything like this and now what? But it worked out fine and though there is room for improvement it surely wasn’t too bad. However, 4 min are just too short.

If you would like to see the clip, go to CTV Morning Live and look for the “Gingerbread with Andrea MacLeod” clip on the right hand side. I am not sure how long it will be up there, maybe another day or two. I am hoping to get a more stable version up of course (all right are with CTV Saskatoon obviously).

Thank you to all the people who stopped by and check my page. I certainly appreciate your interest. I also have 30 fans on Facebook, which is not all too much compared to other pages, but really nice. Especially since some of those people are not friends or family but complete strangers that take interest in what I do. Of course the same thanks needs to go out to my blog followers here on WordPress. Thank you!


I am sure you know yourself: it’s Christmas time, which means of course baking and cooking but also time for holidays/vacations. That’s what me and my husband will do. Tomorrow we will leave for Vancouver and we won’t be back until the 31st.

I have no recipes or posts pre-written so there will be a little drought here on the blog. However, I hope to upload some pictures from the German Christmas Market with it’s delicious food. So watch out for that.

In the new year I hope to get back to baking asap of course, I should also throw in some cooking I was thinking.

Questions to all: What is your favourite baking/cooking recipe?

Share it here on the comments or post it on Facebook and I will give it a try. I like to try new things and though this blog is here to show off German and North American recipes I certainly would love to try everything else you think is good.

I wish you all Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanuka or whatever you might be celebrating and a Good New Year. Take care and hope to see you back soon.

Happy baking!
