Hallo, I'm Oma Gerhild and I love to share my German culture through cooking and entertaining.

I've years of experience in the kitchen, and have discovered some amazing items that really make things easier and more enjoyable.

Below, I'm excited to showcase my favorite finds – from beautiful serving dishes to specialized cooking tools – that I use every day to make my life simpler.

Whether you're a seasoned cook or a beginner, I hope my recommendations will inspire you to add a touch of German-inspired practicality and charm to not only your kitchen and dining room, but to the whole house!

Let's get started!

My Favorite Kitchen Tools

Whether you're an avid cook or just starting out in the kitchen, having the right tools can make all the difference. Something as simple as a quality chef's knife may be easy enough to find, but a spaetzle maker? That's another matter. Again, Amazon to the rescue.

My Favorite Bakeware

When making certain German baked goods, there is certain bakeware that's needed. How else is one going to get that perfect Obsttorte?

My Favorite Cookbooks :)

My bookshelf has many cookbooks written in German, but cookbooks with German recipes written in English … there aren't that many good ones. So, here are mine 😉

Although I inherited my Mutti's Sammeltassen, I think I also inherited her desire to be 'more modern'. My everyday dishes are square, white Corelle, meaning easy care and long-lasting. My set is at least 15 years old. I use them almost every day, and they still look as good as new. 

They look even better when they are filled with traditional German food :) They really remind me of dishes I've seen and used in Germany.

As much as I still love them, my table setting sometimes just looked too plain. I needed something with color. That's when I added Dowan to my table. German? No. Pretty with my German-inspired 'plain white' dishes? Absolutely!

After nearly a year of steady use, including repeated runs through the dishwasher, I wanted to share how well they have held up, right here.

Dowan Bowls Laid Out

Indulge in Elegance: Small porcelain dessert bowls by Dowan for a pop of color on your table and perfect for little desserts.

Pop on over to my Amazon Storefront and see the other favorites I use from German herbs and spices, small appliances, cleaning supplies, and so much more.
