Port de Pollenca

A few weeks ago, I fled from the freezing temperatures in Germany and escaped to Mallorca for a short trip. I booked a simple but wonderful Hostal close to the port of Palma de Mallorca and seized the days to explore the region. I took the bus to Port de Pollenca on my first day,…

Spaghetti with meatballs

This is one of the classics that I learned to cook and to love while living in the US. The recipe my hostmom gave to me came without a sauce so I combined the meatball recipe with the sauce that my grandma taught me. Ingredients – meatballs: 1.25 lbs ground turkey 1.25 lbs ground beef…

On rituals and dreams

Different strokes for different folks. This phrase can be linked to various situations. For instance, many people have shared rituals which may appear strange to other; welcomings, register, repeating actions. Just like my mother and I. When I still lived at my parent’s I helped with the house work; I had the dust everything about…

something new: a hot and creamy chicken soup

🇩🇪 You are all aware of it by now: I love soup. One of my all-time favourites is chicken soup, but I feel like I am getting tired of this good old classic. That’s why I did some research and wrote a new chicken soup recipe last week. It is creamy and spicy and very…

Potato gratin with goat cheese and apples

🇩🇪 Merry Christmas! Thank you for stopping by. I wish you and your beloved ones a good time, no matter what and if you’re celebrating! For the season of love I am giving away one of my new favourite recipes :) For a change I purchased a vegetarian winter cookbook and I already tried a…

Seasonal baking

🇩🇪 I am sorry I’ve been out of touch lately, but I’ve been thinking long and hard about this post. To be more specific: I have been thinking about baked goods. There. I said it. Those of you who have read several of my recipes may have noticed that I always encourage seasonal cooking meaning…

Baked Paprika-Turkey Stew

🇩🇪 Last night I felt like taking the time to cook something a bit more special and I already knew the ingredients, but I just couldn’t find the right recipe… so I ended up writing one myself. :D I present to you my very own „Geschnetzeltes“ (a dish that kind of works like a baked…

Nothing written, again.

🇩🇪 Sometimes I am just sitting here, staring at my laptop. I want to write. But it doesn’t work. Then I resort to other things; editing photos, watching YouTube videos, reading what other bloggers write. I get up, make some food, check my my phone, sit down again,… and after a few hours I give…

Spicy Pumpkin Soup 🎃

🇩🇪 Actually, I am not much of pumpkin lover, but every year in fall I crave one. Last year I tried butternut squash (here’s the recipe) . This year I killed an hokkaido pumpkin – it jumped right at me at the farmer’s market. The great thing about hokkaidos is that you don’t have to…

The Power of Encouragement

🇩🇪 One of my favourite Saturday morning activities is a stroll over the farmer’s market right around the corner – the smell, the noise, the bustling about. One thing in particular caught my eye last week. A young man of about 10 years knealing in a corner, strumming his tiny guitar, singing a few songs…
