Crunchy Christmas Crackers

These days many of us are busy decorating our homes. December almost here, beautiful Christmas markets opening up everywhere – at least here in Europe – and radio stations starts playing “last Christmas” again. I thought today, we could bake something that is easy enough, and has a crunchy Christmassy feeling to it.

Or – have the kids make it – it’s that easy!

From unwanted zucchini – to much wanted bread

Not being a particularly big fan of zucchini – I don’t know why I keep buying them.

The quick 10-minute, healthy lifestyle, Schnitzel

Servus!

(Which is “Hello” in Bavaria – the south part of Germany)

If you know anything about the German kitchen, you probably heard about Schnitzel! It’s a quick, tasty and normally not Paleo – or LCHF – or whatever you call your lifestyle – because of the breadcrumbs you’d use. However – who says we can’t substitute them?

Camel Muffin – and what is Zwetschgen?

You know what a cinnamon bun is, right? But, have you ever had a camel bun? Probably not. Me neither.
