Well, I have to be snappy about writing this post. I just crawled out of the woods to get onto internet in town so I could post this awesome hot fudge for you while Samuel runs some errands. We have to be quick though because it's a beautiful day back on the lake.

Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese

Print Friendly and PDF




This is so weird right now looking at my table back home in Berlin right now in these photos. Wasn't long ago I was eating this awesome spicy mac and cheese and chatting with our German neighbors out the window.

Now Samuel and I are driving in a McDonald's scented car through the beautiful woods of North America, our mosquito bitten feet freshly soaked in the waters of Lake Superior.

So guys, remember when I asked you the other day for ideas because I was stocking up on recipes to post while I'm on vacation?

Well, here I am, 4000 miles later in the USA, with a bunch of awesome things lined up to show you in the next few weeks. I think this post fulfills pretty much all of your requests.

Frozen Watermelon Coconut Mojitos

Print Friendly and PDF




The other day I bought a watermelon. 

Being a stereotypical pregnant woman, this was very exciting for me. I waited for days for the perfect moment to break into it.  

As soon as a craving struck, I split it open. It had given a deceivingly juicy sounding crack, but I was horrified to see before me not the succulent, bright color I had been dreaming of, but rather the pale pink flesh of an underripe watermelon. 

I really almost cried. I'm not kidding. Like I said, stereotypical pregnant woman.

Coconut Cream Pie From Scratch {With Boozy Option!}

Print Friendly and PDF








So, we have a problem.

I had been asking Samuel to rearrange our furniture in the living room for a while, ever since everything was pushed into the corners as it became a bedroom for our refugee friends for a few weeks. Being the busy man that he is, he simply hadn't gotten around to moving everything back into place. Plus he needed someone to help him since I think it's against the rules for a pregnant lady to help move furniture.

BLT Chicken Salad With Balsamic Vinaigrette

Print Friendly and PDF




I've been having kind of a hard time writing this post today.

Samuel is home, which means that both of our productivity levels are suffering. It started out with Samuel reading his book about the science of bread while I uploaded the photos for this post. Innocent enough.

One Pan Balsamic Roasted Chicken and Vegetables

Print Friendly and PDF



I hope you guys all had an awesome 4th of July. We sure did. I never felt so patriotic until I moved to Germany. I guess it's just like my grandma always says, absence makes the heart grow founder!

Anyway, we had an awesome grill-out behind our apartment. Samuel made pretzel buns, my baked beans finally turned out for once, and I even made some patriotic brownies at the last minute.

Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake {With Easy Strawberry Roses!}

Print Friendly and PDF






So, as you may already be aware if you follow me on Instagram, I made this cheesecake for a café here in Berlin last weekend. I was sort of excited about it (GAAAAAH!). Just a little.

It was approximately 1 million degrees and humid outside that day, and the cheesecake, strawberries, and I were all sweating furiously as I made the final touches before dropping it off at the café. I now know why pregnant women aren't supposed to complain when they experience prolonged sweatshirt weather in June and that they should be careful what they wish for.
