oh, I’m getting lazy. At least in blogging. Maybe due to my acute phase of knitting addiction… Nevertheless, I’m eating. Always. And cooking. Less than eating, but still quite often. And when friends are coming over here, it’s always the question: what for dessert? Something yummy. Something easy. But not just some ice cream. Too boring. With hot raspberries? Yeah, yummy, but a bit boring.
Moosewood helps – as often. Their warm apple-walnut-sauce (from Moosewood restaurant book of desserts) is just perfect! Not too boring, not complicated and not too exotic. And you can declare it as – at least a bit – healthy because of the apples. (Just don’t mention the butter and the sugar…)

I was in Munich about one week ago – and found there one of the nicest cafés ever. In fact, it’s a bakery with a special history: 2 Japanese people who lived in Japan ate some German sourdough-bread in a German bakery in Japan and decided to learn how to make this bread. So they went to Germany, learned German and followed an apprenticeship in Bakery. Later, they opened their own little bakery in Germany. There, they offer bread and yummy cake, you can have a coffee and sit there in a really, really, really lovely shop. (Seeing the cake, I thought, that they surely went some time to France, too – their mini-cakes looked just like made in France!).
I had there some coffee and a good cake – and bought brownies, a cake for le gros père and a bread. Took all thishome by train carrying a big bag – no… nearly home. I must have forgot the bag in the train. This was pretty sad. Or stupid. Continue reading ‘Last time in Munich’

Right now it’s the perfect season for soups. Coming home from the cold weather outside, it’s nice to eat a warm soup in the evening. So I’m testing many recipes of Moosewood’s book “Daily special”: last time it was a celery soup with blue cheese. As it’s hard to find celery (Bleich-/Staudensellerie) from Germany right now, but easy to find regional celeriac (Knollensellerie), I decided to make a little change and used celeriac. Gives less color to the soup but also quite a lot of taste.
For one large pot for 3-4 persons you need: Continue reading ‘Creamy tasty winter soup’

We had 1/2 a cabbage in the fridge. And I knew that in Austria, there is a dish called Krautfleckerl – Pasta with cabbage. Sounds weird, but is yummy! So I looked in the internet how to make them, read a bit here and read a bit there and made then well… something. Result: tasty stuff – and one more nice way to eat cabbage! The cabbage gets quite sweet and tender, which makes it very yummy.
I followed more or less this recipe, but I’ve read that others season with marjoram or caraway seeds. I decided to use allspice as Senta Berger recommends.
For the dough, I just used my durum wheat – water – oil mix, as always. Sister of a vegan and daughter of an egg-saving mother, I am sometimes also an egg-saver. And I like my pasta dough. Continue reading ‘Austrian pasta – once again!’
