I really like fancy foods. Don’t get me wrong, I’m perfectly happy with a takeout pizza but every now and then I want to spoil myself with something special, like this Pork Loin with Truffle Red Wine Sauce.
Ginger & Olives - German Girl Cooks Posts
The name of this blog hints at the fact that I have a thing for ginger – and I really do. It is one of my favourite elements of Asian cooking and no dish is boring when it contains ginger, right? Furthermore, ginger comes with a bazzilion different health benefits so it’s not just a treat for the tummy but also for the rest of you.
I am a big fan of homemade burgers of any kind. Plain burgers, lamb burgers cheeseburgers – you name it! Jalapeños are probably one of the hottest add-ons for homemade burgers and if you like the spicy things this is something you will love! There must be millions of burger recipes out there and it might take a while for you to find the right one.
In 2011/2012 I spent one semester living and studying in Hong Kong. It was an amazing time and filled with very interesting culinary experiences. I think I only encountered very few dishes that I didn’t like and many that I loved. One of the dishes I had at least twice a week is Hong Kong BBQ Pork Rice which was available everywhere, including the university canteen.
Sometimes the easiest dishes are the most amazing ones, such as this simple salad with baked goat cheese and honey balsamico dressing. It only takes few ingredients and little time to create this tasty dish so maybe it’s something you could try for next meatless Monday? :)
Considering all things edible, dumplings are probably one of the most versatile out there. Those little pieces of dough present the perfect canvas for ingredients from all around the world. It seems like you can find dumplings in most cuisines around the world, either sweet or savoury, using different kinds of dough, fried or steamed and so on and so forth. Reading the Wikipedia article on dumplings it looks like a challenge worth taking: Try all the dumplings. Maybe (probably?) someone’s done that already.
