Sharing my cooking ideas with others, who like to prepare tasty and healthy foods while staying within a budget, is a dream which I have harbored for a long time. Using wholesome ingredients readily available for preparing dishes with lots of flavor is gratifying. Food is like wine, it has to have a "bouquet", a rhapsody of flavors which pleases the pallet and leaves a lingering enjoyment. It has to be "full bodied", "balanced" and slightly tingle the taste buds, not overwhelmingly, but enough to wake them up - all this with a focus on health and nutritional balance.

Food is an important part of our wellbeing - physical and spiritual. It satisfies our physical needs, but it also fulfills spiritual needs. It offers beauty, aroma and taste. Savoring a delicious and well-served dish appeals to our senses and brings harmony into our being. The next time you sit down to a meal prepared with love and attention, savor it with your eyes, be grateful and enjoy it with the knowledge that it will be beneficial and pleasurable.

I love food and always enjoy the time spent around a table. What creates better vibrations than "breaking bread" together and enjoying the food, wine and each other's company?

A very popular dish in Germany and I grew up with it. There are many variations, but this is what I remember when I was a child.
