Good evening guys,

(post contains affilaite links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

it is my first gift guide of the year 2020 today and to be honest I wasn´t as excited as the years before. The whole pandemic stuff puts such a damper on my usual Christmas excitement. I am trying very hard to get out of my funk and hopefully with Christmas everywhere around I will be normal again. 

I always try to include extraordinary gift guides for you guys as there are thousands out there and many are similar. Going to link last years ideas for you at the end of every gift guide post so you can eventually find what you are looking for.

Almost everybody has a hobby cook in the family. The one person who tries out new recipes on the daily and invites you over to test menus and other delicous treats. Wouldn´t it be nice to gift this particular person in your circle something really great. Just think about it. The next test person will definitely be you.

Hi guys, 


I am back with a recipe today which I haven´t posted in a long time but there are several things I want to try out this year in the category food and drinks and if I succeed in making them I am going to post them here. 

Since it was my birthday about two weeks ago I was thinking which little treats I could make for my work place and my line dance group. I didn´t want to make anything to fancy or something which would take too much time so I decided to stay in the no bake category. There are so many recipes I didn´t even have a clue. 

As a huge lover of oatmeal and peanut butter it didn´t take a lot of time convincing for me to “bake” the oatmeal peanut butter bars.  Find the recipe here.


Ingredients:
3 cups oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup peanut butter


They are really easy to make and delicious as hell – just follow the step by step pictures. You can´t do much wrong. But be careful, eating them is highly addictive!!!

Be sure to check back in my food and drinks category for other recipes I have already tried and approved. I am planing on making my own coffee syrup and there will also be some light recipes for Spring and Summer. 

Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.

My top 3 pumpkin recipes for fall/winter – super easy…..

(Pumpkin bread)

…..

Hi guys, 
(post contains affiliate links / Werbung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links)
today I am rounding up my 3 favorite recipes, including pumpkin I have found all over the internet. I have tried oh so many but these are the ones we love and I am making over and over again. Of course you could cook/bake them for Winter too. Pumpkin bread for example would be great to make for Thanksgiving or to bring to a Thanksgiving festivity as a gift.
#1 Pumpkin bread

 3,5 cups flour
2 cups sugar
2 cups pumpkin puree
1 cup vegetable oil (I like taking olive oil)
2/3 cups water
3 eggs
2 tablespoons baking soda
1,5 tablesoons salt
1 tablespoon cinnamon
 1 tablespoon nutmeg

stir everything together and bake for 1 hour for about 170 degress/ the dough serves two baking pans 

#2 Pumpkin spice cake with cinnamon bourbon buttercream frosting

you can view the recipe here – it is from Mara´s blog called M Loves M

#3 Pumpkin casserole with potatoes and minced meat

1 pound minced meat
1 small pumpkin hokaido
1 pound potatoes
1 leek
cheese
salt, pepper, nutmeg

I shredded the pumpkin and the potoates in my kitchen mashine
pre-cook the meat in a skillet first 


put everything together
garnish with salt, pepper and nutmeg and lots of cheese on top


cook for about 45 minutes with 175° degrees until potatoes and pumpkin are cooked

These are my absolute favorite things to cook/bake right now, despite the pumpkin spice latte. I have posted a recipe last year. You can view it here.

In this way I am ending my fall posts and going straight into winter which makes sense these days. I am alerady preparing for Christmas. Here is a peek into my kitchen and it only has about 4 ° every day so wearing warm winter clothing is more than appropriate.  

Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.
