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 […]

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 […]

It’s a pretty common question this time of year… What is Lebkuchen? is it like Gingerbread? The answer is yes… sort of. When someone offers you a Lebkuchen cookie, you shouldn’t expect a snappy gingerbread man. Lebkuchen is not crispy or crunchy…and it tends to be round or rectangular (seldom person shaped). It’s a rich, […]

“Quadratisch Praktisch Gut”…. Square Practical Good… I can’t think of a more German slogan for a company than the one used for Ritter Sport Chocolate bars. Ritter Sport bars are famously square, so it’s the perfect size for your pocket (practical!) And good… That might be a vast understatement. Now, you don’t find Ritter Sport […]

This isn’t just Oktoberfest Food… Soft Pretzels are found in the Bread Basket … right along […]
