Big News: I am self-hosting now!

Dear readers,

Maybe you didn’t notice, but I moved to a self-hosting platform. I have had readers reporting back to me that they had to unfollow my blog and follow it again in order to realize that yes, I am still active! Feel free to check:

In fact, there are some major changes since I moved:

  1. The layout with many new features, including a cleaner look and easier printout of the recipe.
  2. I am slowly translating my blog to German, so it is going to be fully bilingual, yay!
  3. Many new recipes since I moved.

My readers like the following the best:

Chicago-Style Pizza (can be vegetarian)

Everybody has an opinion how the perfect pizza is supposed to taste like. There are huge fights about the pizza dough, the thickness, the crust, the amount of cheese, the toppings. I know. I am not getting into that. I am simply going to introduce you to a pizza which is more like a pie. And since I like pie, I was excited to try this one. Deep-dish pizza is another term for this pizza. Because you need a springform. You will put so much cheese and tomato sauce onto it that the regular circle simply doesn’t cut it. Chicago style pizza is my new favorite. It starts with a very buttery dough, which is then sprinkled with mozzarella cheese (yes, the cheese goes on the bottom), then comes some chorizo (if you like it to be non-vegetarian) and then lots and lots of tomato sauce. Let’s have a closer look at each layer: Continue reading “Chicago-Style Pizza (can be vegetarian)”

Creamy Blueberry Cheesecake (no bake)

I have to confess something, so far I have never worked with gelatine or a vegetable gelling agent. I know, it is crazy. Somehow I thought it was super complicated and I also felt that often the taste was weird or cakes looked unattractive. But I decided enough was enough and simply said, OK, let’s give it a try. I decided to try with this wonderful cake. I mean, wouldn’t you want to try a bite of this beauty?

Eclairs with Raspberry Filling

I decided to take part in a baking challenge. I know, I am crazy. Andrew from the Facebook group Bake Off For Fun invited participants to bake something with these three criteria for April:

  • The color pink has to appear
  • Something has to be piped
  • A heart shape needs to be found

I first wanted to bake a chocolate cake in heart shape, but decided against it. My husband loves eclairs and I still need to practice the batter, so instead I decided to go with eclairs in heart shape. When I did some research on the internet, I was surprised to see that either people made them the classical eclair shape or the shape of cream puffs, so basically balls. Occasionally I would stumble across a swan, but that was about it. Continue reading “Eclairs with Raspberry Filling”

Soft Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies (my husband’s favorite)

Let’s talk about cookies. Cookies are my comfort food. Cookies are the best. I prefer them to a fancy dessert any time. I know, I am crazy, but cookies call me from afar. They remind me of my childhood. They usually don’t require that much time to prepare and they are easy to freeze, to ship, to make somebody happy, including myself.
