Pasta al Limone - and the sun is rising
January 11th, 2019 | main dishes
Pasta al Limone – there is hardly a noodle dish easier to prepare and more aromatic. And the lemons are freshly picked from the tree in our conservatory…
Unfortunately, as we know, we do not live in the country where the lemons bloom. But a few years ago we bought a lemon and a lime tree for our conservatory. The lime tree turned out to be a lemon tree, but no matter. Now we call two lemon trees and one calamansi tree our own and enjoy completely untreated citrus fruits from our conservatory.
Pasta al Limone is the perfect dish to harvest the small, yellow vitamin bombs and process them directly. Heavenly!

Barcelona in Spain is one of his absolute favorite cities. Here you can read the captain’s shore leave recommendation: “7 hours in Barcelona”read more
Schupfnudeln – Autumn Soulfood
“Schupfnudeln” is a typical German dish. We talk about fingershaped dumplings made of potoatoes. This recipe combines these dumplings with minced meat and apples – very simple. But often the simple dishes are the most popular ones. Especially with children. Same with our stir-fried Schupfnudeln with apples. Our son and daughter have been crazy about this dish since childhood. Apple and horseradish anyhow are a perfect pair, endive salad as a vegetable and a quick horseradish dip provide the freshness kick.read more
