New Years Eve

My dinner last night:

Salmon wrapped in zucchini with tsatsiki and zucchini potato fritter (little tricky since the raw zucchini is not easy being wrapped around something, but it was very delicious.


Later the evening I had a desert: Tiramisu with almond Biscuit (Spekulatius), apple sauce (Apfelmus) and Amaretto (was delicious, but I prefer the classic Tiramisu with espresso and Amaretto9



I wish you all a happy new year!

(a recipe made up in my head)

  • 1 onion
  • garlic
  • fresh spinach
  • cocktails tomatoes
  • feta cheese
  • pepper, salt
  • pasta (f.e. fusili)

Heat olive oil in a pan and fry cut onions and squeezed garlic in it. Wash the fresh spinach in cold water and cut the wooden pieces away. Add the spinach to the onion&garlic. Fry it, but remember: The spinach collapses back upon itself. And which seemed a lot in the beginning is getting very little in the end. Then add feta cheese which is cut in small pieces and the tomatoes. Stir it till all water is gone. Meanwhile boil the pasta. Serve it!

(for four people)

  • 1kg floury potatoes
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 table spoon salt
  • 250g flour
  • butter

Cook the potatoes, peel them and smash them (through a potato ricer) on a slidely floured place. Add little salt, the egg and some flour and disperse them. Add as much flour that the dough is not sticky anymore. Take some of the dough and make a long barrel with 1,5cm aperture. Cut 2cm pieces from it and roll them over a fork with the thumb.

Cook the gnocchi in a lot of salt water and get them out of there after few minutes (when they are swimming on the top of the water).

But the ready cooked gnocchi in a pan with butter and serve them with your favorit sauce.

My favorit sauce:

Melt butter in a casserole, add mature gorgonzola cheese andmelt it as well. Finish with a little bit pepper and serve it with selfmade gnocchi.
