Hello my dearest friends,

 it is another Friday which means another recipe. The past six weeks have been the hottest we have ever had and I really like the hot summer weather but the temperatures have been too high.


So I was searching for ways to cool us down and help us to survive the heat. How about a nice and refreshingly cool drink to start with. We had been to a Mexican restaurant months ago and they had a drink on their specials which was pretty delicious but I don´t really know what was in there so I tried to copy it as good as possible. In the end it didn´t look like the restaurant drink at all, but I was fine with my “own” version I have created and all of our BBQ guests liked it too.

So here is my super easy and quick summer bowl recipe. 

Ingredients:
– 1 bottle of rosé wine (take whichever you like)
– 1 bottle of Schweppes Tonic Water
– blueberries
– raspberries
– lemon balm or mint

– put in the fruits
– fill in the drinks (I used both bottles and added one bottle of cold water too)
– mix everything together and store in fridge
– add some crashed ice before serving it
– lemon balm is optional but I really loved the look and the taste of it


 Hope you are having some fun weekend plans. Today is Florian´s bachelor party and tomorrow is his grandma´s birthday so there is lots of celebrating over here.

Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.

Happy Friday guys and welcome back to my blog,

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

I am all about enjoying a glass of rosé or red after a day of work or on the weekend. Since I have always liked wine more than any other alcohol (no fan of beer and I totally hate all the hard liquors) I have a few brands I am loving and buying over and over again. The Gallo Family for example has all the wines from white to red we love. 

Florian is preferring a glass of white over any other but he doesn´t mind drinking a sip of red with me. The Gallo wine group is the largest exporter of California wines so there is one for every adult in our family.

Ingredients:
This is an all-in batter – one of my absolute favorites.


– 100 gr. bacon, diced
– 100 gr. chopped scallions
– 150 ml milk
– 80 ml rape oil
– 1 egg 
– 220 gr. of flour
– 1 teaspoon of salt
– 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking soda
– 2 teaspoons tomato spice (this is all I add but you are free to take whatever you like)


I got the silicone mini bundt cake baking form (better to remove them single afterwards) 
Put one tablespoon of batter into the


Bake for 28 to 30 minutes at a 180° degrees.


If you want you can them enjoy warm as well.

Hello my dearest friends,

I am sharing my most requested recipe with you today. As simple as it is as quick is it eaten at any ocassion I make it. Sometimes it´s the easy things guys. These soft little rolls filled with herb butter and topped with delicious parmesan cheese will make you addicted.
I always buy the Knack & Back (Pillsbury) six rolls in one. Just throw them in the oven and bake for about 12 minutes or fill and sprinkle them with cheese for a delighted side dish.

Ingredients:
– 2 rolls with each 6 rolls
– 1 stick of herb butter
– 1 cup of parmesan cheese
– olive oil
– fill the middle of the rolls with half a teaspoon herb butter
– spread olive oil in your baking dish
– put your filled rolls into it and sprinkle with plenty of parmesan cheese
– bake until the rolls get golden brown (or for about 30 minutes) by 170° degrees
 Pretty easy am I right. The perfect side dish for a BBQ, a picnic or just as snack.

 I am seeing myself of into the weekend and leave you with this great and easy recipe. Have fun baking.

….



Hi guys,

(post contains affiliate links / Werbung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links)

we love Summer BBQ´s and since our patio is ready we are constantly outside playing with Chloe, drinking our coffee outside, dining or having a glass of wine and also heating up the grill. This means I am on the search for new recipes to add to grilled meat or fish almost everytime we plan a BBQ.


A noodle salad is never a bad idea. No matter for what or when you are making one. There are also thousands of options like for pasta dishes in general. I made this Italian inspired noodle salad my mum loves to prepare too so I am sharing the recipe here today.


Ingredients:
– 1 cup of black olives
– 1 cup of mini mozzarella
– noodles (cooked, mine are maccaroni)
– 1 cup of artichokes
– 1 cup of pesto red


– cook the maccaroni and let them cool down
–  put everything together and stir until well combined
– eat


This delicious noodle salad takes about 30 minutes to make and is an awesome option for your own BBQ´s or for the ones you are invited too.


So for now I am leaving you with this easy recipe and some inspiration for your next BBQ and wishing you the happiest weekend.
