This is almost the last part of our road trip in the US. We spent about 3 full days in NYC. Its way too short for all the things you can do there. We could have been there for a week or more. Every borough is full of surprises. We only had time for Manhatten and Brooklyn. This post is of course of all the things we did in Brooklyn! Where to eat, where to shop and what to do! ...

I’ve been exploring using different grains to add to salads to make a turn fluffy leave salads to something more substantial, filling enough to have it as a main dish on its own. We used French green lentils – Puy lentils, which according to the package is good in salads as they remain firm after cooking. This is a real simple salad that requires almost no cooking at all but the flavours...

Hi guys, Are you suffering from the hot weather like we are? Usually if it is this hot and humid The Wife and me don’t really like to eat a lot of carbs at night because it will feel very heavy. So we try to go for some meat and salad as a side. This is a quick dish that is basically made from left overs that we found in the house and that had to be used. Thinking about this still make my mouth...

Hi guys, Honestly I am not too sure what I should write about this wonderful dish. For the last couple of years we have been living on the “meat side of life”. In the area where we are living in Germany fish is not amongst the most popular dishes so we usually have fish during our yearly visits in South East Asia. But one morning I was watching this great Youtube video from Gennaro and...

What do you do with ripped bananas? Besides baking the classic banana bread of course. Bake this baby! Its a super simple but extremely moist banana chocolate cake with chocolate ganache recipe. It stays moist for more than 3 days. ...

This recipe is pretty similar to our Chorizo pasta dish. We used cabanosi instead which is similar to salami but milder in taste. The taste is still smoky nonetheless. If you have no idea what cabanosi is or where you can find it, you could always substitute it with salami! ...

This is the reason why we went to Pigeon Forge. For the Great Smoky Mountains. As mentioned in the pervious post that we loved the GSM so much that we extended our stay for another night! This is an extremely scenery packed photo post! Nothing about food, mainly the three different trails we took while we were there. ...

Hi guys, It was always one of my dreams to make my own lasagne so I always looked out for great recipes and inspirations. The usual lasagne that you can get in Germany is usually pretty dry and heavily loaded with meat. Usually made using cream or Béchamel sauce. To me it just doesn’t feel right and so I started searching for lasagne that is juicy and doesn’t feature the previously mentioned...

Pigeon Forge has got to be one of the highlights of our road trip. Driving up from Savannah. Pigeon Forge looks totally different. Well yea it was a 7 hr drive and we basically drove through 2 states to get there but it sure was nothing I had in mind at least. We had our fill of southern food here. Read on to find out where we ate and what we think! ...

Burger without the carbs. This is pretty similar to the steak salad we made the other time. Instead of a pricey piece of steak, why not burger patties? It is effortless to make and easy to put together on a weeknight. ...

Looking for a simple white vanilla cake for all occasion? This is the perfect cake! Its basic, simple and everyone loves it. I frosted this with a cream cheese frosting and some fresh blueberries. Making it more summery. This is also a good wedding cake base! ...

We are experimenting new grains since there is a quinoa shortage. While millets are not the super grains like quinoa it is still a pretty good substitute. This is an easy and healthy roasted cauliflower and carrot millet salad with lemon mint dressing. ...
