Simple apple muffins

The star of today’s post is, as you could probably guess, an apple. I don’t think there is any other fruit that can be used in so many ways. You can enjoy it raw, in cakes, marmalades, salads, juices, soups, pancakes, wine- you name it. The thing I like most about apples, aside of the taste, is the fact that they are available all year round, even though the actual season is between August and October.

The German Flammkuchen

It is finally time that I post something from the german cuisine again. I showed you few other recipes here, somehow most of them having onions in their ingredients list. Well, this one can also be modified with onions, lots of them, as well though there is no limit as to which toppings you can use. I am talking about the german pizza, which is called the flammkuchen.

Accidental Nectarine Buttermilk Cake

I know one of my latest posts was a cake recipe, but what better to celebrate than with something sweet? What do we celebrate you may ask? As it happens, this is my 101st post! I somehow missed the milestone when I posted the meatballs in beer sauce, but wordpress did not forget. So I decided to celebrate the happy news with this recipe. I mean, 100 posts!

German meatballs in beer sauce, Bierklopse

We have been cooking so many different dishes lately that at some point we both decided that it would be nice to have something simple, housewife art, for a change.  I mean all the dishes were simple and easy, but we wanted something we knew from our childhoods. Our discussion, like so many times before, consisted mostly of all the typical dishes we just didn’t have in a very long time.

Celery cream soup

You know, there are some vegetables which when you see them, you immediately have an idea of what to do with it. Like a broccoli for example. When I think of broccoli, a broccoli soup, or a gratin or just plain boiled as a side dish come to my mind. It would be the same with the cauliflower, for which I shared quite few ideas of what to make with it. Or a sweet potato. Easy, right?

Aloo Gobi- indian potatoe and cauliflower curry

Today’s dinner is presented by a cauliflower. I have already shared few recipes with this beautiful bulb in focus. Admittingly everytime I buy one I mostly go for the cauliflower puree, or cut the bulb in smaller florets to use as a side. But this veggie can so much more! One of the very good examples comes from the indian cuisine.

Turkey roast for Sunday dinner

In my family we always celebrate Sundays. Mostly with tasty and festive food. I remember my parents were always up very early to start preparing everything for dinner. It was usually a three-course menu so it was a bit time consuming (well, so much for lazy days, huh?) But everything was always prepared fresh and from the scratch. And it was always so good. Everyone would help and we would gather at the table early afternoon to enjoy the meal, followed by a coffee and cake.
