When I was visiting Thea in Germany, she taught me how to make Leckerli. Imagine the best spice cookie you’ve ever tasted and that wouldn’t even come close to describing how scrumptious these cookies are! Originally from Switzerland, they are chewy, sweet, spicy AND delicious! Many years ago, Thea owned and operated her own bakery, […]

When someone mentions fast food, most people think of cheeseburgers, french fries, or maybe a bucket of fried chicken. In Germany, fast food often means….Currywurst! What’s Currywurst? I was hoping you’d ask! Currywurst is so famous that there’s an entire museum dedicated to it in Berlin, Germany. Berlin claims to be the birthplace of Currywurst! […]

I just recently got back from a quick trip to Germany with Pierre. We went there to visit Friedrich dem reisenden Frosch, otherwise known as Polly #40 and Pierre’s mom, Thea. We had a great time! Thea took us to a bread shop one afternoon because she wanted to buy a loaf of Udenhäuser Bauernbrot–one […]
