On a balmy night in mid-August, we sat on our patio with friends enjoying food and wine of the season. For the “contorni” course, I served a late-summer rendition of…
Ice cream flavor showdown Blueberry frozen yogurt Jul

2007
I know, I know, I promised more ice cream recipes and I certainly won’t stand you up, but to be honest, narrowing down my favorite top 3 flavors wasn’t as easy as I had thought. Maybe because we continuously enhanced the flavor throughout the preparation process, until…
Walnut ice cream with Padre Peppe Walnut ice cream with Padre Peppe Jul

“…something with walnuts”. Skimming across my cookbooks and the net made me realize, that most recipes for walnut ice cream looked like clones of each other, so I started thinking of ways and means to add a little twist. Sitting on our liqueur shelf, Mr. Padre Peppe lend a hand!
Getting seasonal with strawberry dumplings Strawberry dumplings Jun
30th,
2007
Since the strawberry season is in full bloom we already had them in every thinkable way, with panna cotta or on-top of a cake, but as a filling for dumplings? Warm? They are actually quite easy to prepare – once I mastered the sticky dough that is – and the combination of strawberries and poppyseed is not only a visual hit, it’s delish.
Ask Curd Curd mousse Jun

Being done in 10 minutes probably makes the curd mousse the quickest dessert I can pull from my sweet tooth repertoire, at least when neglecting the time to strain and chill the mousse. The strained curd cream not only makes a delicious…
Crumbling cakes and a strange experience Rhubarb Crumcle Cake May
5th,
2007
As soon as we got a handle on the kitchen mess, my kitchen spirit asked for a non-elaborate, quick summer cake – we enjoyed the warmest April in the last 100 years (and finally got some long awaited rain this morning). Rhubarb is currently on everyone’s mind, so I quickly settled for a easy to make crumble cake…

Hermann, the new family member Hermann Apr

Want a baby? were the words, Kristin welcomed us with recently. Not exactly sure, whether I was up to a discussion about family planing early morning, so I simply glazed at her with questioning eyes. She laughed wholeheartedly about my silly face and revealed the background of her deluding question: She was raising a Hermann and therefor looking for adoptive parents.

Help came from leftovers of milk chocolate coating and ordinary cookies, I usually give little “time of day” to: broken in bits and pieces, covered in molten chocolate and decorated with coconut flakes…
Canned Cakes - Baked with Love Canned cakes Feb
21st,
2007
The idea was picked up by trendy bread baked in clay pots and cakes on sticks. But trends pass by and so I almost forgot about them until I was looking for a neat little foodie gift. I not only rediscovered a great concept – 12 glasses of cake over the last two weeks certainly speak for itself – but what I found myself is the best poppy seed cake recipe I have baked so far.
Jello - under the influence Jello Feb

2007
Take the English jelly and American Jell-O/jello for instance, both stand for a gelatin dessert and are quite obviously a modification of its main ingredient, the mighty gelatin. Jelly, jello, all fine by me. But…

…this year’s absolute favorites were the chocolate coconut cubes. How I can tell which cookies were our favorites you think? Well, I had to make them four times and considering the yield of one batch, that’s quite impressive…

Based on an easy and quick to prepare vanilla-scented shortcrust, very flavorful and coming with a light mouthfeel, one of my very few must-have-or-die-cookies each year.
