The cristmas eve edition of homemade bread dumplings as made by my sister-in-law. It’s an absolutely traditional southern german / austrian dish and it’s my first time to make them myself and not use the store-bought ones. Well, the pre-made dumplings will have a hard time from now on.
Since I was already working on fermenting chilies and, more important, since I’m a “Kraut”, I decided to try to make Sauerkraut on my own. Here’s what I did:
… or “Kasspatzn” in southern german slang. I posted an article on them before, boasting around that I would make them myself. Today was the day and we finally made some. These are gorgeous, delicious little bastards and they’re surprisingly easy to make! An easy, yummy and filling crowd-pleaser.
TL;DR: I’ll never buy the pre-made ones from the supermarket again!
Made these little creeps yesterday for dinner. They’re absolutely easy to make but are very flavorful and yummy.
Gnocchi for two (about 200g each)
8-10 leaves of sage, coarsely cut
125 g butter
1 small shallot, finely diced
1 clove garlic, finely diced
Salt and pepper
Grated parmesan cheese
As a kid I loved the Bud Spencer & Terence Hill movies! Great stories, even greater comments and… cool food. Just remember them grubbing a full pan of beans and bacon fresh from the campfire and niftily stolen from some starving-ass villains (and occasionally sharing it with their horses). Here’s my (very simple) version – a tradition for the last 20 years:
They’re garlicky, buttery, crispy and simply yummy. If you gave me a bathtub full of them, I’d want to drown in it. Had them last night again and here’s how:
500g small, round potatoes
2-3 tbsp. butter
2-3 tbsp. olive oil
2-3 big cloves of garlic, minced
Dried rosemary to taste
Salt & pepper to taste
I made “Bangers and Mash” today, which is sausages and mashed potatoes with onion gravy. Veeery yummy! Here’s how:
To be (rudely) honest, I don’t like those “Tasty” videos so much, but this one really caught me and I tried it. It’s a cool way to re-use your kitchen scraps by just keeping them in the freezer and – once you’ve collected enough – make vegetable stock from them.
And. It. works. 🙂
Yesterdays dinner. Oyster- and king-oyster-mushrooms, deep fried with some veggies. Man I really need to get hands on some tips on how to properly take photos of food…
