Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

This was not the first time I baked with peanut butter but it was the first time I liked the result. I love peanut butter on bread and absolutely adore to cook with it, but until now I wasn’t thrilled with the baking results. Somehow peanut butter on the sweet side is not my thing. But this pie was different: nice and cheesy and creamy. Really good. Everybody (especially the…

Spaghetti With Vegetables

Spaghetti With Vegetables

  This is another recipe I have tested for QimiQ. Here is the first. It was unexpected good. And what was even more unexpected: my children loved it. Both of them! They ate everything on their plate – VEGETABLES – and wanted seconds. Ok, I admit, the vegetables were cut pretty small, but still, not a word against them – it was wonderful! The QimiQ can be of course replaced…

Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter

Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter

This is the healthier alternative to Nutella or similar products. I’ve made this as a present for my best friend, who is absolutely Nutella addicted. And who mostly has a bad conscience about it when she realizes that she finished yet another glass of it in less than a week by herself. Personally, I cannot really understand that. I don’t like Nutella, never did, I am normally not a chocolate…

Apple Tiramisu

Apple Tiramisu

A few weeks ago I applied to make some recipe testing for a product newly introduced on the German market. That is QimiQ, a fat reduced kind of cream that you can use either for cooking, for desserts or for making sauce. I find the product a much better substitute for heavy cream than the ones I knew before, because there are no chemicals and weird stuff inside. Just cream…

Seitan In Red Wine Sauce

Seitan In Red Wine Sauce

This is the first time I had seitan and I must say I liked it. I’ve heard of it before and knew what it was but this is not something one could buy in the area where we live. I found it about 200 km away from home at Maria Laah. That is a wonderful monastery that we visited about a month ago. There is not only the monastery one…

Amazing Autumn Salad

Amazing Autumn Salad

A chopped salad fit for autumn, full of seasonal fruit and vegetables and dressed in a creamy, sweet sour pomegranate dressing. This is really an amazing salad, we absolutely loved it. I was in the mood for a salad including pomegranate and after perusing several recipes on Pinterest, I came up with this one, which includes a lot of the stuff I had in the house at the moment, like…

Hazelnut Chocolate Cake

Hazelnut Chocolate Cake

This is for me an autumn/winter cake. I wouldn’t even consider making it in spring or in summer. All the ingredients make me think of frosty wetter, of fallen leaves getting already sticky on the ground, frozen grass in the morning and cold hands. And then coming home, putting some logs in the chimney, making a cup of hot coffee, cutting yourself a nice piece of cake and just enjoying the…

Lemon Curd Raspberry Tartlets

Lemon Curd Raspberry Tartlets

I came up with this recipe because I wanted to use a rest lemon curd which was starring at me every time I opened the fridge this last week and because there were still some nice raspberries hanging in the bush in my garden. They came out really good so I thought someone out there might be interested. Lemon and raspberries are for me a match made in heaven. It…

Lemon Curd and Blueberry Cheese Cake

Lemon Curd and Blueberry Cheese Cake

I found this recipe on Adora’s Box, here and I am soooooooooo glad I did. I think it is the best cheese cake that I have eaten until now. It is soooooooooo gooooooooooooooooood. So creamy and sweet and full of flavor. I made it for my best friend’s birthday on Sunday and everybody just loved it, it was amazing. I know, I know the photos are not amazing, they’re not…
