DSC_2959

January is kind of slow when it comes to baking. Christmas is just behind us and there a still some lingering cookies here and there. So, a bit more focus on the cooking side might be not too bad an idea. That’s where this recipe comes in. It’s simple and quick and delicious and, well, you get the point.

Vegetarian Week and Running

By all means, I am not a vegetarian, I couldn’t be. I like meat as much as the next guy though I prefer chicken over pork and beef. However, once in a while I think about it and wonder how it would be. I have several friends who are vegetarian and during my university years a discussion about vegetarianism came up more than once. In 2010 I finally decided that I should do a little experiment and Veggie Week was born.

Ratatouille – JC 100 Week 11

Wow, I am sorry. I have been gone from the blog for a week. *ups* I didn’t mean to, really! It just happened that I was busy. However, I have not been idle so here we go. Oh, this is a rather lengthy post btw.

Often that involves a pizza crust bought at the store but this time I was able to convince him I could make that myself. I don’t need those additives that are very likely in them (though I honestly never check, so I am making assumptions here).

Noodle Salad German Style

German noodle salad

Last weekend it was once again time to provide some food for two potlucks. This is always a nice opportunity to make something I haven’t done before. On the other hand it also poses a problem because you never know if someone else will make the same thing. Another question is: main dish or dessert? I like dessert a lot (I am sure you know that by now) but people here tend to bring a lot of dessert. Then it can get a bit problematic if there are not enough main dishes.
