"Quickies" : Recipes that are quick, easy, and delicious.
I'm Oma and I LOVE German food, but I really don't like to spend too much time in the kitchen.
So, many of the recipes on this website I've altered to make them quicker and easier.
Usually I cook German foods, but there are times that I want something quick and easy and not necessarily German!
For example, the 3 Bean Salad, comes from my friend, Heidi. It tastes great beside my easy German potato salad for a picnic lunch. Following are some of these extra quick recipes - variations on traditional ones and new ones as well. Often, though, they will have a German twist added.
For example, when our boys were young, we didn't often go out for dinner. But, I really liked Chinese food. I improvised and we had German "stir fry".
Mind you, as much as I tried to cook it Chinese-style, it often had a German flavour to it. Perhaps it was that I was used to over-cooking the veggies -- in what I would call the "old German style".
Desserts are another example. I LOVE marzipan. Very German. Very delicious. So, almost anything I'd make would have almond flavoring instead of vanilla to try to mimic the marzipan flavor. Hence, brownies with a German twist.
Here, you'll find some of my favorite "non-German" recipes, often with a German twist added (turning them into easy German recipes!) The only criterion here is that they are quick and easy!
