I love it when a cake recipe comes together fast, and bakes up without fail. Better yet, it looks “fancy” enough for company, but you can toss a slice into a lunch pail, and it arrives looking and tasting great. This Easy Eierlikörkuchen Recipe is perfect that way. Think of the Eierlikör Cake as the […]

  I really am my father’s daughter… I have a thing for lists. This includes making a fairly detailed traveling to Germany checklist every time I go (He even makes notes on his lists after returning, and files them for future reference… I’m not THAT far out there). In the old days you could pack […]

I’m pretty sure this Black Forest Cupcakes Recipe would confuse my Oma for a bit…but then she’d tuck right in. Granted, cupcakes aren’t much of a German Thing. (Maybe we could call them Black Forest Törtchen…little cakes). So, why did I make them? You see… Black Forest Cake / Schwarzwälder Kirsch Torte is my daughter’s […]

I think some of my strongest memories relate to food. Especially the German foods I grew up with. The steam in Oma’s kitchen while she prepared our mid-day meal, while I sat on the counter watching her. The good smells of Eintopf, roasting chicken or Königsberger Klopse in my mother’s kitchen when I came home […]

Of all the nicknames I had growing up, my favorite was bestowed on me by my German family, “Leseratte” (Reading Rat). Probably because every time I went to Germany, I spent a LOT of time reading. Why would I spend so much time with my nose in a book in GERMANY? Well, the family was […]

Fasching! Karneval! And that means it’s time for Berliner! Honestly, I seldom make them, because fried foods are not really great for the waistline, and we live down the street from one of the world’s great Donut places (shout out to SloDoCo!). BUT it’s Karneval season, and Berliner (which aren’t really donuts, more like a […]
