Maki-Sushi (巻き寿司...

...actually I call it just sushi. I like doing them on my own, so I know what's in there, cheap and fresh handmade. 
It's pretty easy, you just need good calm hands, a bamboo mat, rice, veggies, fish and norisheets.

For the filling I use avocado, carrot sticks, zucchini, peppers and canned tuna. I don't like the uncooked fish, even it's really healthy. One big rolls makes about 8 pieces.

Cook the rice until soft, after put some rice vinegar and sugar under it and let it cool down. It should be a little sticky!

Prepare some veggisticks and the tuna.

Put a foil on the bamboos mat and on top the norisheet.

Place the rice about 1cm high on the norisheet, place the sticks and tuna on it, not to much stuff!!, and roll it softly in. A little press and let it sit in the fridge for some hours.

After take it out and cut it with a sharp light wet knife into rolls.

Enjoy it with sojasauce and wasabicrème, it's
 also called Japanese horseradish.

*Good appetite*

From old to new pastel chairs...

...and now they are in my kitchen on the dinner table. 

Two years ago my brother gave them to my parents. He found them on a housecleaning from an old lady who died. There they were standing in the basement for ages until my parents wanted to sell them on the Internet. First I thought okay, I will do this but then my idea was noway...I am gonna paint them in a nice pastel color for my new home. 

We already had some other modern chairs which I don't really like and they don't fit into our new home. So my mum in law took them and I had some free space for some new antique chairs.
They are a little heavy but so strong that a 551 pound person could sit on them.


Not the real one but nearly the same, forgot to take pictures before

Homemade Hummus dips...

...are the best! 

Hummus is a Middle Eastern and Arabic food spread made from cooked, mashed chickpeas blended with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and garlic. You have so many different choices to creat a lovely dip. It's perfect for a party or apérosnack with veggisticks, bread or crackers. First time I heard about Hummus I thought it's something with Lobster and Fish in it because in German Lobster is Hummer and this sounds like Hummus when the Lobster is mashed :) that's why I never searched for this delicious recipe. And now I love it because I love chickpeas and co. so much. The seeds are high in protein, Vitamin B3 and E and low in calories.

My favorite dish are "Capuns"...

...this is typical Swiss meal where you roll two spoons dough with meat in it into a swisschard leaf and boil it until dough is well done.

Eat it just with melted butter and salvia or make a homemade white cheese cream sauce.
I love the cheese sauce over it and bake it in the oven.

Homemade growing swiss chard

Dough with meat and parsley

Boiling until hard about 10min

Put them next each other for a clean freezing

If you wanna freeze them put them next to each other so they won't break into pieces when you'll take them out from the freezer. You can broil them in a pan or bake'em with cheeseflakes and some butter in the oven until they are warm inside.

Don't forget to take out the sticks before you enjoy

Here is the recipe if you wanna try it out. It's so easy and delicious but you need some time to prepare it.

Ingredients for 20 pieces, about 4-5 pieces per person:

  • 400 g flour (1/2 white 1/2 brown)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 dl water
  • 1 dl milk
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 Landjäger (meat like salami)
  • cut parsley
  • 20 pieces swisschard leaf
  • 2 litre water for boiling

Put everything in to mixer and mix until smooth sticky dough.

  • For the white sauce:
  • flour, butter mixed in the pan, stir, stir, stir...
  • add milk until smooth and still stir and add as much cheese as you love.

*Enjoy your meal*
