Food, glorious food

There has been a sad, sad lack of new recipes on my blog recently. I hope you’re not going hungry on my account!? 😉

Here’s a tiny dish for your next office party or simply for when hunger strikes.

In letzter Zeit habe ich eindeutig zu wenige Rezepte gepostet! Hoffentlich ist deswegen noch niemand verhungert!? 😉

Hier also ein kleines Rezept für einen Brotaufstrich/Dip, der eigentlich viel zu einfach geht. Vor allem dafür, wie lecker er ist! Continue reading

Just a quick update on the things I’ve been doing.

They are good things!

Real good things!

Sorry about the lack of a picture – this stuff is so good that I couldn’t take a picture before it was all gone. 😀

Why have I never thought of making pizza with my second-favorite vegetable and loads of cheese? Beets me!

If you like pizza but can’t be bothered to decide on just one topping and/or flavor combination, this pizza is for you. If you want pizza NOW and do not have the time or patience for yeast to do its magic, this pizza is for you as well.

So today I thought I’d make him one of his favorites for dinner to cheer him up a bit: sun-dried tomato risotto. Continue reading
