Spice Rubbed Salmon with Mango Salsa

Print Friendly and PDF




Well, Samuel is finally on spring break, if you can call this spring. One of the best parts about Samuel going to school in Germany is that they give him 2 months off for spring break. Not only does that mean we have plenty of time to spend vacationing (hello, Rome!), but it also means we have some romaaantic time in the kitchen together.

Mini Eggplant Caprese Pizzas

Print Friendly and PDF




So, this week is one of the worst of the year. It is the week of Samuel's finals. Therefore, I have had to relinquish one of my favorite hobbies for the week: distracting Samuel from studying. The main reason for me giving it up is not, as you may think, my supportiveness of my husband to work hard at everything he does, but rather because he is so dang motivated that he refuses to be distracted.

How to See London in One Day

Print Friendly and PDF

 


My sister visited us here in Berlin in December and we had a totally awesome time. Not only did we show her all the great sights here, but we also fulfilled her lifelong dream of spending the day in London. London was never on my list of top travel destinations, but I'm so glad we went. It was way cooler than I ever dreamed.

Here I will write a post for you about our day in London and give you as many tips as I can so your experience in London can be as fun as ours was.

Reese's Peanut Butter Brownie Pie

Print Friendly and PDF




I have another sister visiting from the US. You know what that means... more freshly imported American delicacies for me! I think I now officially have enough peanut butter and Reese's Cups to last me until I return to the US (and that is a LOT of peanut butter and Reese's Cups if you know me and my peanut butter cravings).

The Top Ten Recipes of 2015

Print Friendly and PDF



Well, 2015 has been quite an eventful year for me. Definitely the most awesome year of my life so far. I got engaged, then got married, and moved to Berlin. I've made my fair share of soggy sweet potato fries, rock hard fudge, and burnt cookies, but in the midst of all that, I think I made a few things that were alright.

Hot Chocolate Mix {With Real Chocolate!}

Print Friendly and PDF



Hey, everybody. Long time no see. I know I disappeared at an inconvenient time just as your Christmas baking was beginning, but I do have an excuse! My sister was visiting all the way from the USA. Since she's my favorite cooking and baking buddy, I actually had thought we might make a few posts together while she was here, but we ending up being way too busy running around Berlin, eating döners and currywurst, checking out the Christmas markets, seeing the sights, and even spending a day in London (in case you didn't see on Instagram).

Chewy Sugar Cookies {Gluten, Egg, and Dairy Free!}

Print Friendly and PDF



If you've been scouring the internet, looking for the perfect gluten free, vegan, and or allergy friendly sugar cookie recipe to make for Christmas, then look no further. Even if you're just a regular old joe who likes flavorful, chewy sugar cookies and has no allergies (quit looking so smug!), you should still make these. Even if you are one of those people who hates coconut for some unfathomable reason (*cough*samuel*cough*), you still might like these. They've got the sweet flavor of coconut without the coconut texture that you might hate.

Pumpkin Cake With Sticky Toffee Sauce

Print Friendly and PDF




Okay guys, one last pumpkin recipe and then we can move on to Christmas. I just had to get rid of this last bit of pumpkin from my Thanksgiving pumpkin pie. And when I say "had to get rid of", what I actually mean is "had the pleasure of devouring". It's always a pleasure to find a new way to use Grandma's famous pumpkin bread recipe. I've made carrot cake with it, banana bread muffins, and pumpkin cupcakes. It is always perfect. It's moistness, fluffiness, deliciousness and Grandma-tried-and-true-through-the-decades-ness can't be beat.
