The potato in Germany…it’s been a central part of the diet for so long, that it seems like it’s always been there. Mashed, boiled, fried, formed into Klöße, baked into bread… They might turn up at every meal. We had a bin in our kitchen JUST for potatoes! But considering how widespread the potato is, […]

  Pockets of German culture in America have always fascinated me. I wonder why and when the group arrived in the United States, how they live (and how much different their new home is from Germany), and what parts of Germany do they hold onto.

Don’t you just love a fresh tomato in summertime? It tastes of sunshine. Even when I can’t get any other veggies to cooperate, I always seem to have success with tomatoes.
