About Lydia Fulson

Who am I? 

Hi! My name's Lydia Fulson. You've most likely seen my face around the website here and there, and you probably wonder, "Why does Oma Gerhild keep posting this random girl on here?"

Well, that would be, because I am Oma Gerhild's granddaughter. :) 

Of course, when growing up with Oma, I was exposed to a bunch of German cuisine, culture, some of the language and vocabulary as well. I always found this to be quite fascinating.

Perhaps you are visiting the site to bring back some of those cherished memories that you made while in Germany, growing up with your Mutti or Oma.

If so, you have come to the right place! You can find hundreds of recipes here, some which you may recognize from your childhood. 

My Job on Quick German Recipes 

I have come quite a long way since I first started working for Oma. I started with the little things, fixing errors on pages. Now, Oma has made me an associate editor of the website. I currently edit and compose pages, modify photos, create videos, schedule, co-write e-books and newsletters, all to engage with you!

I have always had a great interest in writing, photography, and pretty much anything that allows being creative. When Oma asked me to come work for her on the website, of course, I accepted and saw it as one of those creative opportunities. Seeing as though I'm not the most tech-savvy person on the planet, I was a touch nervous to start.

When she first told me about her website and showed it to me, I first thought it seemed like a lot of work. But now, seeing all she has accomplished with this website, and the connections she has with her followers, I am so happy that she went through with it.

Never in a million years did I think I would become a website editor. But it is right up my alley and I love that I can share the knowledge Oma has passed down to me, with you. 

Nine-year-old me, doing my favorite thing... cooking with Oma!

From as far back as I can remember, some of my fondest memories are the ones that Oma and I made in the kitchen. Every single year on my birthday, Oma would have me over for a sleepover.

We would go for a pleasant shopping and dinner date, then the next day, we would prepare a HUGE German meal together for the WHOLE family.

I always felt so proud of myself for being, you could say, "Just like Oma."

A Bit More About Me...

Oma has always made cooking fun for me. I remember feeling so impressed and amazed at the variety of dishes she could create in the kitchen, and that feeling is still the same!

I sure have learned a lot from her.

I love art, traveling, being creative, and hands-on. All of these qualities, I got from her. I often get people who repeatedly say, "You are SO your Oma!" I won't argue, because they are pretty right about that. 

For years, Oma has been teaching me her best kitchen methods, and I have her to thank for my love of German food.

Now years later, I still find it exciting to look back at the website and see a picture of the recipe we made, and think Hey, I made that! 

This website truly is built on love and memories. 

I had always planned to go to Germany and experience the culture and cuisine for myself. I've heard many stories where my Oma and Opa have shared the traditions and strange foods that they have there.

I couldn't wait to travel to this distinguished country to learn more about my heritage and see the beauty of my family's traditions. 

And, so I went!!! Oma took me on a bus tour that went all throughout Germany!!! And, guess what?

There's now another website I write for: Oma's newest site, Tour My Germany! It's all about Germany: the cities, the castles, the people, the places to visit, the things to do, ... all sorts of stuff.

Lydia's Favourite Recipes

If I tried to share all of the recipes Oma and I have made over the years, well, then I might as well have written an entire book. 

It is for sure challenging to pick just one favorite. So here are a few: 

Oma's Beef Rouladen - Traditional and sooo fun to make! 

Red Cabbage - Only three letters needed: Y.U.M!

Oma's German Spätzle Recipe - This one was a good arm workout, but the result is delicious.

Black Forest Cake - I can't even tell you how many times my Dad has asked me to make this one again.

Fruit Flan - A refreshing recipe that is pleasing to the eye.
