Sandwich - Freestyle

Yesterday, after I hopped through one of Hamburg`s farmer`s market, we had a more or less simple dinner - just sandwiches.

I freestyled a little bit, so the first one was spread with Ajvar & Harissa , I added mackerel, olives, chopped salted  lemon (which I prepared one and a half month ago already, yumm!), salad and roasted pine nuts.

Normally, I would have used tuna, but because tuna is one of the most endagered and overfished fishes, we decided already 6 month ago, not to eat it anymore.
(You can read that here: ...
We always watch out for the logo of the MSC, the Marine Stewardship Council - they look after  natural and healthy fishing...>>>>

The other one was with peanut-cocoa-sauce, chicken breast with roasted fennel seeds and cinnamon, olives, chopped salted lemon and apricot.

Happy, happy evening.

Spitzbuben - christmas cookies part 2

Don`t think I am lazy and my kitchen stays cold...noonooo!
I made a lot of christmas cookies, cute packaging and gave them all away...
But I always have to prepare the whole kitchen for photography sessions, and after hours of baking, well...there is sometimes no power left for that.

But I have been in Brandenburg, where my parents enjoyed the pre-christmas a house in the forest..., and I used the opportunity to bake cookies with my mum, what I didn`t for years!...All the good old childhood cookies...mmmmh!

So here are some pics of  my favourite ones: "Spitzbuben" .. so it is called here.I guess, everybody knows this kind of cookies, it is so so simple, and every part of every country has a different name for it.
But everywhere, they taste delicious, I am sure!

For all of you:
whatever you may eat during the holy days!
