Spaghetti con cozze – Spaghetti with mussels – Spaghetti mit Miesmuscheln

Deutsch It is not easy on our stove to heat two oversized pots at the same time. We have a field with three levels for small, medium and large pots/pans, two small fields and a medium sized field where you can add an extra field for oval pots.

Hessian stuffed potato dumplings with bacon sauce – Diebscher mit Schustersauce

Deutsch Where does the term „Diebschen“ dates is unknown. The shoemaker sauce comes from the middle-Hessian-urban master craftsman status, who could afford during the week a piece of bacon or the Hessian kind of salami. This recipe describes the full version as a main dish. However, it is also possible to make only 1/4 of the recipe with table tennis […]
