My Magic Monster – After 9 months of Kenwood Cooking Chef

Kenwood Cooking Chef – A Magic Monster I didn’t have a kitchen machine/food processor/mixer for years, but have wanted one for a long time. No room, no justification for the expense as a student etc. However, last year, after having handed in my PhD I thought I deserve a REAL treat. Like one, that will […]

Kasseler Bread

Kasseler ‘Grey Bread’ – One of Fifty shades of German bread

Very delicious this one. And the first yeast-bread I somewhat mastered! It is soooooooo good!!! I started making this without a mixer, so it is possible, the ‘Krume’ as it is called in German – the stuff inside the crust, will not turn out as flexible and homogenous if you make it by hand, but […]

Rhubarb Cashew Cream Cake

Rhubarb Cashew Cream Cake – A Creamy Dessert

This is a plant-product only (vegan) cake. It resembles a cheese cake, but while I had the intention to make it somewhat resemble so we can have a nice cake as dessert after dinner, I wanted something that is just very yummy in its own right. Plant-only food is like that, if you know how […]

Autumn Maple Pecan Kiss

Autumn Maple Pecan Kiss Gelato – Vermonster – Hand and Homemade

So busy I was, I couldn’t post, part of it because we had a pest infestation, which took weeks to clear. Not pleasant, but I will dwell on this later – it’s solved now for good it seems. However, I also loaned my ‘Monster‘ to a friend who was instantly convinced she needed ‘something’ like […]

Your Ideas? Pumpkin-Zucchini Did-Not-Turn-Out-Fritters

It’s summer and the first pumpkin in the garden has grown enough to make something out of it. I never grew pumpkins before, generally they are not a main staple for me, but I gave it a go this summer. Also the pumpkin-mix-seed sachet is nowhere to be found, so I wasn’t quite sure which […]

Hazelnut Gelato Ingredients Close Up

Going Nuts One More Time – Hazelnut Gelato – Hand and Homemade

Just because – a little Christmas special! This is amazing. I never knew how easy it is to make homemade gelato (which translates to ice-cream). Having an ice cream maker at hand is not even necessary, even though the results get somewhat better, but not to the point where it becomes a major problem without […]

Homemade Nutella Ingredients

Going Nuts Again – Homemade Nut-Chocolate Spread “Nutella”-Style

It’s addictive and full of energy, but not necessarily the kind of energy source you need more of. Nutella is full of simple sugars. However, about twice a year I have an episode where I eat a jar. This recipe allows me to get a bit more control over what I spread on my piece […]

My Magic Monster – A Kenwood Cooking Chef Review and Comparison

The Kenwood Cooking Chef Kitchen Mixer and Food Processor. It’s lengthy, it has a lot of my last 3 months experience and search on the web in it and I hope this helps people deciding whether this is the right one for them. It certainly is for me!

Pesto Siciliana Ingredients

Going Nuts with Pesto alla Siciliana – Ricotta e Noci (from scratch)

Italy. It features ancient culture, emotional language, loving and interesting people and last but not least bloody awesome (and healthy) cuisine. I’m happy Italy isn’t everywhere, since there are soooo many uncounted delicous cuisines (and awesome cultures and people), but you can bring a little bit of Italy (alsmost) everywhere.
