I have so got to work on my presentation… A time-consuming, yet effortless and very rewarding dish:
These are the Udon Noodles I had for lunch yesterday. Thrown together from what I found in the pantry and deemed suitable – but at least with a decent originally japanese broth (at least as far as I know).
Can any japanese Person from my valued readership perhaps provide me with a japanese word for „thrown together“ or „rag-tag“ or „random“ or similar, so I have a name to call them in the future? 🙂
As I’m still not able to move around a lot and freely, I’m cooking a lot these days and I’m growing a serious set of love handles from it… For the first time, I appreciate the benefits of the small northern germany kitchen: Almost everthing I need is within an arm’s reach and I don’t have to stress the broken knee too much.

I came up with this dressing a long time ago and it’s been an evergreen in my kitchen ever since. Simple and delicious – the magic lies in the tyrolian pumpkin seed oil (“steirisches Kernöl”).

I’m always glad for hits on my recipes – gives me a feeling that some people out there do indeed benefit a little from this website. Here’s what you all clicked most in 2020. Thanks!
This recipe from my sister-in-law was commented with “that’s how we make gnocchi!” by an italian friend of hers. Of course, this had to be tried 🙂 It’s surpisingly easy and no fuzz and they easily win the day over any store bought product.
You can prepare them in advance and, when ready, cooking them is done in a breeze. We like to fry them with butter and sage, but they can be used for every recipe calling for gnocchi.
They had some wood bbq planks on sale at the hardware store, so of course I had to snatch at the offer. I want to make some flame grilled salmon finnish style (“Loimulohi“) and I’m not willing to spend money on an overpriced plank-holding-contraption. So I had to come up with my own and this here is my shameless copy:
