I have a very special treat for you today. In my opinion there aren´t much more comforting foods out there than awarm cinnamon roll with a fresh and zesty cream cheese frosting and since you all are my people I believe you think the same way.
Following Rach Parcell for years I always wondered about her perfect cinnamon rolls and now I know where the recipe is from. The site is called The Food Nanny and let me tell you the cinnamon rolls are too die for. I made them several times and they even get better and easiert every time.
They are goey on the inside with lots of cinnamon and sugar and cross but soft on the outside. The cream cheese frosting is optional but we like to eat it like that in this house so here it isn´t an option. Super easy three ingredients cream cheese frosting. I use one package of creame cheese (300 gramms), half cup of confectioners sugar and a big squirt of lemon juice. I mix everything together and add it onto the still warm rolls. If you want it to melt down even more you could also add butter to the frosting.
That´s it for today, but I could honestly rave on about this delicous recipe for hours not that I need to. Bake it and see for yourself.
anyone hungry and doesn´t know what to cook from time to time. Well as much as we love to cook sometimes we just don´t know what to make anymore and also shopping for groceries never was a great task and now with Covid it is even worse. So how convenient would be a service that delivers your weekly ingredients to your doorstep and all you have to do is cook, not even meassure the ingredients. That would be awesome am I right! I thought so too and went for it. I have known about Hello Fresh quite some time reading about it in an ad here and there but finally set up an account two months ago.
Hello Fresh is a meal-kit service that offers different meals every week. You can choose between three to five meals per week. We did three. I think this is a great amount cause on somedays we get take-out and other days we cook favorites. Three meals for 2 people is the smallest amount you can get. If you are a single household you would have plenty of leftovers to eat for lunch the next day.
I am ordering our meals over the app. It is very easy to navigate and there is not much you can do wrong. So subscribing to the service doesn´t mean you need to take their services every week. If you don´t like the menu or are out of town you can skip the weeks you don´t need food. We pay weekly so you don´t pay any money for the weeks you skip.
You can choose from every dish Hello Fresh offers for the week or you are putting in a filter like vegetarian, family friendly, low carb and express dish.
Sometimes a fresh produce isn´t available due to weather or traffic so they will notice you with an e-mail and exchange it for a similar item or give you some money back.
In conclusion the service is a great idea for everyone who hates grocery shopping, has no time to grocery shop, has not idea what to cook or who wants to try ususual dishes but not buy every little spice at a normal size. All the meals are pre-portioned so there won´t be any waste of food.
Delivery worked out very well so far. You can decide by yourself when your Hello Fresh order should arrive. We timed it for Monday and it always turned up on time. The perishable foods are cooled with ice packs and everything else is packed in several paper bags with all the ingredients you will need for the dish. The box itself is very sturdy so I don´t think the produce will be damaged ever.
Now let´s talk about the downsides. I think not being able to order single portions is a huge disadvantage for Hello Fresh because there are so many single households out there.
Another thing that has bothered me a lot is that you need so much dishes. For almost every menu you need an oven tray, a pot, a pan and several bowls for gravy, dressing or anything else. It is incredible how much dirty dishes are produced with the regular menus.
Overall it is very well priced and you would not save much or nothing at all by buying all the ingredients in store but if you order pasta dishes only I think the 40 Euro are too much for a week of prepped meals cause let´s be honest noodles itself almost cost nothing.
Despite everything I said I think we will definitely continue to use it. Not for every week but from time to time it is a nice change to get some fresh ideas and also life is busy enough sometimes there will be no time left to worry about cooking.
There is a discount code that will be valuable till the end of the year for Hello Fresh Germany, Austria and Switzerland. It is fresh21 for 50 Euro off on your first month (10 Euro off, 10 Euro off, 5 Euro off, 5 Euro off).
Hopefully this was useful for you guys. If you have any questions left feel free to ask. See you.
and welcome to Christmas week. The countdown is officially on and I still can´t believe that Christmas is on Thursday. It is a huge blur for me this year and without any festivites it is a little unreal too.
We always made pancakes for Christmas morning but for this year I wanted to take it up a notch so how about a breakfast board??
Yes, my dearest friends it is easy, delicious and an absolute great idea. You could combine any kind of food. We made mini pancakes, waffles and bacon and put lots of toppings on the board too like jam, nutella, chocolate drops, berries and maple syrup.
This is THE real treat. I absolutely life for breakfast and was so so happy about it. To be honest I thought it would be harder to get everything done in time but it was very manageable.
Another great addition would be french toast. Or you serve a hearty breakfast board including bacon and fried eggs, avocado and toast plus it is so pretty on the eye.
