Kitchen &CO has class that you too can sign up for, just go see their class list.  I attended  todays class  “Create A Swoon-Worthy Charcuterie & Cheese Board”! Hosted by  “Seed To Sausages”  I know a lot more about cheeses and sausages now! Good chatting to couples waiting in line and at the table. Fantastic afternoon spent there, I call it “Me Time;-)))”

 

 

Oh you should see all the deserts and bread! You will be amazed and I can guarantee you it will be hard to figure out what to get for your sweet tooth!

 

Chips, Chips and more all freshly made just for You with flavours of Salt and Malt and much more! I tell you people where lining up to get a taste of the “Ray Woody’s Craft Chippery” Chips.

Smile, now you know what I did for the last 2 days while my hubby was hiking up in the North of Michigan. Taking my daughter to her new work place as I enjoyed her new surroundings too. “Sam I know You Can Do It”

Dehydrated Tomates

 

 

IMG_4571

Love the rich red colour of these tomatoes.

It is all around us right now the ripe fruits and vegetables are an indication of the end of summer season.  Apples, peaches, pears, corn, cabbages and yes tomatoes.

I am luck to have this Holland Marsh  wetland close by well about 20 minutes driving distance from my home.  As per their website “Produce selections range from more traditional crops such as carrots, onions and celery, to more diverse options like Chinese broccoli, Asian radish, and water spinach”.  So a lot of the vegetables I believe are coming from there to our local store that I have right around my home.

I also have a knitting / sewing friend that grows carrots and onions right in Holland Marsh. Luck for me I have been getting a bag here and their from her and her husband. With the onions  I make this amazing yummy onion soup. Carrots are great for carrot cake or soup too.

So since yesterday I have been dehydrating 3 baskets full of tomatoes so my hubby can take them on his up-coming hike to  Munising Falls Michigan (Pictured Rocks) with his hiking friends.

Have a great September to all of you.

I may have to do the same with apples soon

Toblerone Cake

File 2016-03-29, 6 30 38 PMYummmyyy yes you did see it right a really big bar of Swiss Toblerone and 1/4 of it goes into this cake.

I started to make this Chocolate chip cake when I notice all the chocolate chips are gone……

Yes I my home we always have chocolate around. Not that we eat a lot of it, but being Swiss “Schoggi” it is a staple all year long. Cutting up about 1/4 of that huge Toblerone bar and adding this to the cake now for the chocolate chips works great too. Sooo yummy, now just have to make sure i do not eat it all on my own…..

Denise & Fred thanks for the gift. The cake is sooogooooodd…..

 

 

 

Sooo Guete…., eine risen große  Schweizer Toblerone Schokolade. Hatte den drang Heute einen Kuchen zu backen  Schokoladen Würfenli  Kuchen.

Doch wo sind die Schokoladen  Chips ? alle weg komisch ?!…..ja in meinem Zuhause haben wir immer Schokolade im Hause. Nicht dass wir viel davon essen, aber da ich Schweizerin bin haben wir immer  “Schoggi” im Hause. So  1/4 von der riesen  Toblerone Schoggi kommt nun in den Kuchen.  Sooo lecker doch muss ich aufpassen das ich alles allein essen werde……

Christmas Baking Time In My Home

2015-12-10 18.43.29As Christmas is getting closer I thought it would be nice to bake something so the home smells like fresh bread.

Yes my “Zopf”is still my favourite to come out of the oven.

I thought I should try something new for a change. So with the same kind of dough I decide to cut the amount of dough in fours and roll them out into circles. 2015-12-10 16.47.22 - Copy

Then I spread some raspberries Jam on it. Topped it with another layer or rolled out dough. spread more jam on it. repeated this one more time. So I ended up with the last dough sheet  on the top. Now put in the middle a glass for the centre.2015-12-10 16.47.18

Cut all around into four section and each section into 4 section again. so I had a total of 16 strips. Now to one twist as per picture. Once more twist after that and then pinch it together and fold under just a little so one does not see the ends.2015-12-10 16.48.25 - Copy

Let it rise a little and then off into the preheated oven at 350 degrees for 40 min. depends on your oven it may take less or more.2015-12-10 16.51.28 - Copy

 

2015-12-10 16.51.35Weihnachten  rückt näherun d es ist höchste Zeit etwas zu backen, damit das Haus nach frischem Brot duftet. Ja eine “Zopf” ist immer noch mein Favorit.

Doch sollte zur Abwechslung einmal etwas Neues aus dem Ofen kommen. So mit einem Kilo Teig in vier Teile geschnitten und ausrollen zu Kreisen.

Dann belegete ich die erste Scheibe Teig mit Himbeer Marmelade. wieder mit einer Teig Scheibe bedecken usw.

Mit dem vierten Teig beenden.  Nun in der Mitte ein Glas auflegen. Den runden Teig in 4 Teile schneiden. Diese Teile noch einmal in 4 Teile schneiden.  So hatte ich insgesamt 16 Streifen .

Nun zwei Streifen gegen einander drehen. Alle streifen so weiter drehen. Dann alle noch einmal drehen. Nun die zwei streifen die gegen gleich laufen zusammen drücken und ein bischen umlegen .

Nun alles Aufgehen lassen für 30 minuten  und dann ab in den vor-geheizten Ofen bei 350 Grad für 40 Minuten.
