Too many recipes for one post, but who cares?

Our Fasching/Carneval or Mardi Gras, whatever you call it, begins with my Birthday and ends this weekend. So here are some pictures to say goodbye to Green-Violet-Gold: And what did I cook for this weekend? The coq au vin won. But before I’ll come to this, I want to show you the recipe of one…

A short note on Plain Jane Cookies and French regrets

Here’s another quick and easy recipe for you, nothing spectacular. Energy cookies,which I made for this year’s Valentine 400 g spelt flour 200 g butter 150 g raw sugar 200 g ground almonds 2 eggs 1 tsp orange extract 1/2 tsp salt water Mix all ingredients and knead them well -the dough will be a bit…

The butler, the bounty hunter and the wardrobe

First of all the Movie ‘The Help’ mysteriously turned into ‘The Butler’, a great journey through U.S. history in a soft tone and without too much pathos and with a great cast even in the smallest parts. Even Darth Vader liked the movie…but he didn’t make it to the end, he was Cherry Coke flavored…

Et in Arcadia ego, your sincerely Acedia

I’m really shocked! Everything in our home seemed so perfect and beautiful and everybody was happy and then you get the news that your cat slowly transforms into a stone or something immobile because he is too lazy to move at all! Now we have one hyperactive Hannibal always running around and making you stumble…

The British Patient-Books-and Heasty-Non-Super Cooking

Now we have another ill cat in the family..no that’s not the right word because Lenny has heart problems for quite a long time, but now he also got serious neck pains because (now listen on!!) he just sits around and doesn’t do anything else but sleeping and eating…so he gets laser acupuncture and massages……..

Black Valentine and a bit of this and that, hoping that it’s not spoiled

In Order to give a very unstructured post an apparent relevance and a sophisticated look just use numbers at the beginning of every pointless contribution…okay I’ll try… First of all Mimmi was at the doctor’s and he found out that she’s got kidney insufficiency AND via functional thyroid…that’s really no good news, but he also told us…

Fairydust intolerance or the confession of a chain gang member

If I was entitled to make one wish it would be a new job! It’ really a kind of living hell for me, I cannot sleep anymore, lose weight(which could be a positive effect for some people) and get grey hair <_<(which has nothing positive at all). But I think luck or good fairies steer…

My crown is called crispy, a crown that seldom kings enjoy

Last time I showed you a picture of my great crowned pancakes and I thought maybe somebody would like to have the recipe we use for plain pancakes, just a basic….but I like basic recipes, they are short to write down 🙂 Lenny’s Plain Pancakes: 1 cup flour 1/4 cup corn meal (makes the pancakes…

Call it Birthday 2.0 or pointless babble

So have a look at my Non-Birthday breakfast! It was pancakes with crispy bacon and egg, covered with Hot Sauce and Maple Syrup, one of my absolute favorite beginnings of a wonderful day. Look at the pancakes, I baked them myself (my sista made the batter, but hates to bake them…strange, strange…) and I decorated…

Gumbo Beauty Gallery: The taste strikes back

As I already told you in some former posts I had/have a Mardi Gras themed birthday party and speaking of New Orleans and Louisiana I think  it’s time to talk about GUMBO. It’s one of my absolutely favorites, I love cooking it and I love eating it….with fresh French bread and a cool beer, a…

Photo Archive: Part??

Here are some old pictures which I like because they are things built by men but only nature makes the motives really interesting… And here it looks like a real triptychon 🙂 BTW the black & white ones are taken in our former garden….oh it looked so great and I really miss it when I look…
