There’s a running joke lately that says we can frustrate and confuse the whole next generation by using handwriting instead of printing. And anyone hoping to research their German Genealogy from original documents… or even read letters from their Oma… understands that frustration all too well. I’ve written before about German Handwriting, and how it’s […]

Ask most people what they miss the most about Germany, and they will say…”The Bread”. Flavorful loaves made from rye for Abendbrot, Brötchen (rolls) with crisp crust at the breakfast table, seeded loaves to accompany soups.

When my cousin Linda sent me a photo of Tante Edith’s German red wine cake recipe, I had a feeling I was in the British Baking Show tent doing a Technical challenge. The ingredients (naturally) were all in German, and the amounts in grams. Ok… I can handle that. The instructions though, were a bit […]

A few years ago I started making these cute little Baiser Geister or Meringue Ghosts for Halloween. The kids love them… and since meringues are favorites of mine, I love them too. I can hear it now… but Halloween isn’t a GERMAN THING. Well, no. Germany isn’t Halloween crazy like here in the US. But… […]

When my friend, Gerhild Fulson, founder of Quick German Recipes, and author of German Meals at Oma’s asked me to take a look at her newest cookbook, Baking Just Like Oma, I got excited! Partially because I just love cookbooks… but mostly because I knew that any book of her recipes would be solid, and […]

A few months ago, Monica Jirak sent me an invitation to visit the DANK Haus Chicago. Finally in September, while traveling with my father, I had the opportunity to spend a few hours touring the historic building and learning more about what the DANK organization does. I have to admit, I was astonished! I went […]

I’m a big fan of all things citrus. In the past I’ve shared my Oma’s Lemon Cake (Zitronenkuchen), and a Citrus based White Glühwein recipe perfect for warming the toes AND providing a full daily allowance of Viamin C. And for those of you, like me, who just love the refreshing tang of citrus, I’m […]
