A German take on fruitcake - Stollen.
So I have about 1.5 lbs of chicken, a package of bacon, over a dozen tomatillos, and more than half a dozen tomatoes that need to be eaten ASAP.
I want to do some sort of Tex-Mex inspired dish for dinner tonight, maybe a casserole/Mex-lasagna type dealy. Does anyone have any ideas, or even a recipe I could look at for inspiration?
My hubby and I have been living in Germany for about 8 months. We've been wanting to have a few of our friends over, but our apartment is TINY! Like 23 square meters tiny. Like my kitchen consists of 2 electric burners, a 6"X12" bit of counter, a sink, and a minifridge tiny.
I'm having a few friends (4, so 6 people total) over Saturday night for dinner/snacks and movies. (The twist is everyone has to come in PJs).
Oh, and I'm also on a tight budget. Any suggestions for finger foods, or even main dishes that I could make ahead? As I said, not a lot of storage space in the fridge, and limited cooking space on the counter. I've tossed around the idea of chili, chicken paprikash, a DIY sandwich bar... and dessert is leaving my mind blank!! I'm trying to play up the whole pj party theme...
A rustic pesto over tomatoes and mozzarella for a classic Caprese Salad (no food processor needed).
The most popular street food in Germany is not a sausage - it's a Turkish sandwich: the Döner Kebap!
The Wunderbar - A German treat! Or is it...?
A creamy/crunchy peanut sauce coats soft noodles and crisp fresh vegetables. A quick summery recipe that's great hot or cold!
To anyone who owns/operates a food establishment - donut shop, bakery, cafe, hot dog cart (or if you know someone who does), what have you found to be the biggest challenges? Something you thought would be easy, but you were way wrong? Any funny stories about it?
I'm not thinking about opening my own or anything (no time soon anyway), but I'm working on a writing project and looking for interesting/funny stories for inspiration! If you have a blog about your exploits running your foodie business, feel free to mention you do, and I'll check your profile for the link.
Thanks in advance!
Classic stovetop Mac & Cheese. Recipe includes stir-in suggestions, including my personal favorite: Crazy Awesome Mac!
Inspired by a response to the Iced Coffee Roundup here on SE, I wanted to put it to you out there in SE Readerland: Have you ever made cold-press or "toddy" coffee at home? How do you think it compares, and how do you recommend doing it with nothing more than a French Press?
A great hack for Hollandaise (no special equip), and what to do with those leftover egg whites when you're done!
We just had a thread about ridiculous food stories, but what I'm looking for are the funniest one: the stupid mistakes, the stories that you look back on and STILL can't help cracking a smile to. Mistaking salt for sugar is a classic one; what silly or wacky things have happened in YOUR kitchen or dining room?
The perfect meal to celebrate the end of Spargel Season! Rich homemade Hollandaise over fresh white asparagus, with potatoes and salty smoked salmon, yum!
Sweet and savory teriyaki-marinated pineapple mini burgers- a twist on the classic slider method.
Seems impossible, but here are 2 ways to make this season's luscious strawberries even better! Easy no-bake desserts.
Feel bad for drinking that second (or third) cup? Find out why it may actually be a great idea!
A creamy no-bake avocado cheesecake, balanced with a sweet-tart Strawberry-Rhubarb compote, over crunchy cookies that pack a surprise!
Creamy sauce dressed with smoked salmon and leeks, served over hot pasta, and topped with a fresh tomato and avocado salad - date night anyone?
I kept seeing this funky looking vegetable (?) in the produce section of my German grocery store, so I decided to buy a few (only like, 30 Euro cents each).
What do I do with it?
Sorry if this has been asked/answered before, but I looked in the FAQ's and didn't see anything.
When you submit a photo/photos to Photograzing, how do you know if/when it's been moderated and accepted or rejected? Do you just have to check day by day to see if your photo(s) posts?
So I moved out to Mainz Germany a few months ago, and I'm looking for some fresh ideas for dining options. I've done wursts, I've done schnitzel, I've done beer and wine. I'm looking for the next step in authentic German cuisine.
Next weekend is the Spargelfest, the next weekend is Bretzelfest, and the next weekend is Johannesfest, so I'm down with the fests, and I am very aware of the Weinfests in August (what a great bday present for me!!). Anything else I shouldn't miss?
Any suggestions? Thanks!
I am living in a teeny tiny German apartment with a "kitchenette" that consists of 2 stovetop burners, no oven, and a minifridge. I have incredibly limited space and supplies, but I really want to try my hand at making fresh pasta. I've gotten to the point that I don't even buy tomato sauce, I use a very basic (and delicious) recipe from Marcella Hazan.
Now I just need the pasta recipe. And how important is semolina flour, anyway?
I feel that food is one of the best ways to tie us to our past, our heritage, and memories.
What is your favorite childhood-related food memory or dish? Is it a special meal you had on your birthday? Or the one dish that always makes you think of your grandmother/grandfather/sister etc? Is there one smell that just takes you back?

So, what are your secret food Pet Peeves that you keep pent-up inside because you know they're wrong? I'm sure I'll get flak for this because I know there are TONS of you out there... but that's what will make...
I came home from the market with a bundle of green asparagus and a few potatoes, and wondered what to do with them. How I ended up on Anne's Food, a Scandinavian food blog, is beyond me, but there I was mixing up every mustard I had into a large bowl with sour cream, and adding a bunch of boiled vegetables. The mustards help add some zing to the dish, and the carrots add a touch of sweetness. It's a rather lovely light dinner.
