Christmas Ratze Fatze RecipesHallo,
“Ratze Fatze” are those quick recipes that help you get out of the kitchen FAST, yet they’re recipes you do over and over again because they’re so GOOD.
I started last month telling you about Cayen and sharing a few of her “ratze fatze” recipes she gave me during our stay at her “Ferienwohnung” this past summer in Sterdebüll, Germany.
I’m adding a couple of her recipes this month that would be great for the Christmas table. But before I start, I have two important announcements to make:
Winner of the Quick Christmas Recipe ContestThe grand prize, a Canon PowerShot A800 Camera, goes to . . .
Christel Schmidt from Campbells Bay, P.Q, Canada. Congratulations, Christel! Your two recipes, Rolladen (rolled stuffed steak) and the Egg Nog, were tops on our list.
I just love Rouladen and Christel has an interesting twist on them (tomato paste). The Egg Nog sounds really simple and really quick; the only problem might be storing it for a year.
Christel’s Rolladen“This was what our mum would make every Christmas Eve. We still carry this tradition on.”
Christel’s Eier Likor (egg nog)“The longer this sits, the better it gets. Our Oma used to make this after Christmas for the following Christmas. Store in a cool dark place.”
Coming Soon . . .The second announcement is that my first book, Quick Fix Soups is almost ready. Keep a watch out for an email soon on its way to you, letting you know how you can be one of the first to get your copy. Since it’s about Quick Soups, it’s great for that busy schedule when you need something nourishing and quick.

Perhaps you have some “ratze fatze” recipes that you’d like to share. Just send them in and I’ll post them. Please include any information you have about the recipe, pictures would be great, and where you got the recipe so proper credit can be given.
That’s it for now. I have only one more soup to make for photos for Quick Fix Soups: Roasted Cream of Wheat Soup. Don’t know what that is? Gebrannte Griess Suppe is its German name. It’s what my Mutti often made for us when we were little. It’s a tradition I carried on with my boys when they were little. It’s one of those super quick, super easy, and very inexpensive soups that was passed on from Oma to Mutti to me.
Here's something a bit different. Have you ever thought of having your own cooking website? Or perhaps a crafting website? Or a . . . . website? It's fun to do and it provides you an income.
Then check out the offer below. SBI is how I created the Quick German Recipes website. You don't need to have any prior knowledge of website building. It's a great teaching tool for teens to seniors+. What a great gift to give and to keep.
In the meantime time, enjoy getting ready for Christmas. Start baking if you haven’t already done so. But, take time to enjoy the wonders of God’s creation, especially at this wonderful time of the year.
Be talking to you real soon,
