Wenn Hirsche wüssten, wie schön sie sind…

Jewels:Wie Ihr vielleicht wisst, liebe ich Hirsche, Rehe, Rentiere – eigentlich alles, was ein Geweih hat. Deswegen heißt mein zweites Standbein neben der Food Fotografie auch Deer Baby Photography. Hirsche sind einfach so wunderschön! So habe ich direkt ganz große, ich muss zugeben fast gierige Augen bekommen, als ich die Kollektion von von Erika zufällig auf […]

All-Girls Picnic

Liz:Today I’d like to invite you to an all-girls picnic with delicious lemon tart and lime lemonade! What a fun way to celebrate summer! We were on vacation in Bavaria, where I get to see my cousin and my daughter loves spending time with her cousin, whom she adores. Nothing like having an older girl […]

Brot zum Zupfen

Liz:Im Urlaub hat man ja angeblich Zeit. Von wegen…. Diese Challenge schieben wir schon länger vor uns her, weil ich im Urlaub irgendwie doch zu nix gekommen bin und Jewels gerade ganz viel Arbeit in New York hat. Und da man sich als Selbstständige bekanntlich nicht über Arbeit beschweren soll, geht die natürlich vor. Rein […]

The vegetable that is named after me

Jewels: I like cauliflower so much, mostly because it is pronounced just like my last name! So sometimes, when I want to be really funny, I even spell it Cawley Flower. What I also like is food that cooks itself. This roasted cauliflower basically does just that. You cut it up, wash it, put it on […]

Red Beets for Dessert

Jewels: This week our photos couldn’t be more different right? Liz’s photo is so bright, friendly, and inviting, while I took a much moodier approach. They are almost the inverted counterpart of each other! Anyway, what did we create here? It might look like another boring chocolate cake, but don’t be fooled. It is actually a […]

Cookies for the healthy belly

Jewels: Cookies without butter, sugar, and eggs? How can that be cookies then?? No way. Absolutely not. Not in my house. Unless… well, wait a minute. If our blogger friend Veronica says they are good, maybe they’re at least worth a try? Veronica has a blog called „Carrots for Claire“ and she knows healthy & […]

PumpkinPie in Germany?

Liz: Schon seit Jahren treffen sich am letzten Wochenende vor dem 1. Advent viele meiner Freunde zum traditionellen Adventskranzbinden. Am Sonntag war es wieder soweit. Es wurden wieder taschenweise Tannenzweige herangeschleppt, Dekorationen, Kugeln und Bänder ausgepackt und dann ging’s los mit dem Kranzbinden. Dabei wird ein wenig was getrunken, viel gequatscht und viel Leckeres verputzt. […]

Have you heard of Farinata??

Have you? Because I hadn’t heard of Farinata until recently when I saw it on a menu at a restaurant. I ordered it not knowing what it is. The word sounded like the italian word for „flour“ so I thought „can’t go wrong with anything that sounds like italian flour“. What I know now is […]

Baking like a Roman

Baking like who? Have you ever heard of the Römertopf? I’m sure some never have and for others it will trigger childhood memories. I come from the latter category. I remember how my parents would make meals in the Römertopf: they would put potatoes, cabbage, pork, beef, or chicken into the pot (everything raw), with a […]

Something with butter and sugar for a change….

We have been exploring a lot of healthy cooking and baking lately. We both like eating what is not only good for us but also sustainable. But once in a while we need to indulge and throw all good intentions overboard. „Can we make something with lots of butter and real white sugar?“ Liz asked me after […]

Hört mal, wie ich backe

Jewels: Heute kommt das Raaaaaadio zu mir! Das Radio? JA! Das Raaaaadio! Und wie wollen die “zeigen” wie Du kochst und fotografierst? Ist ja schon eher ‘ne optische und von mir aus auch ‘ne geschmackliche Geschichte. Wie bringt man das denn mit Geräuschen rüber?? Ja, das hab ich mich alles gefragt. War aber gar nicht so […]

Brot ohne Mehl??

Jewels: Ich bin Vegetarier und alle paar Monate auch mal Flexetarier. Da kann ich manchmal nicht anders, wenn jemand mir gegenüber Bacon isst oder mein Mann sich im Restaurant Fisch bestellt. Da wandert dann schonmal die Gabel quer über den Tisch. Ich versuche außerdem gesund zu essen, interessiere mich dafür, warum Andere kein Gluten essen, […]

My Grandmother’s Red Currant Cake

It’s time for moving pictures! As most of you know Jewels and I are contributors to Holly Becker’s blog decor8 with a series called „Food in Motion„. Today I’m happy to share my grandmother’s Red Currant Cake recipe with you today. It’s been in the family for years now and most family members know this […]

A taste of fall in the summer

Liz: Summer is kind of fading out. Although it’s only August it really feels like fall already. I feel a bit cheated on. Trees already have yellow leaves and they fall at the mildest wind blow already. On the farmers market I saw pumpkins and – with the weather getting us in the mood – […]

Cherry me to culinary heaven

Jewels: Wow, what a recipe! I am so excited to share this one with you because it was so mindblowingly delicious. Please try this at home and tell us if your mouth is as happy as mine was this morning!                         For this week’s […]

American Pie or German Pie?

Liz: Ich war noch nie in einem Fußball-Stadion, kenne keine Auf- oder Abstiegstabellen und Fußball schauen tue ich auch nie. Nie? Moment. Das stimmt nicht. Denn alle 4 Jahre, wenn die Fußball-WM anrückt, ändert sich das ein bisschen sehr. Da freu ich mich auf die Spiele, fieber mit den Nationen mit und da kann es […]

Elephant Luck – A Giveaway

Two years ago, Jewels and I had the idea of starting a blog because we didn’t see each other as much as we used to after Jewels had followed her heart and moved to Brooklyn. We were working on our third cookbook then (our children’s cookbook „Anni kocht für Kinder„) and were talking about props, […]

Strawberry-Layered Chocolate Cookies

I’ve been longing for strawberry season, and am SO happy it’s now on! I decided to combine this Food in Motion episode with my strawberry love. My picky 4-year-old daughter happens to love them too, so we share a passion for the little sweet & red fruit. We started planting our own strawberry plants a […]

Spring is in the air

Last week nature exploded and brought a flurry of yellow flowers. All this spring air made me feel active and I decided to combine this Food in Motion episode with a recipe from my latest book and an easy pre-Easter DIY packaging idea. My daughter helped (as always!) and was eager to glue the yellow dots […]

My kind of cake

Liz: Manchmal braucht man so Rezepte, die einfach funktionieren, gut schmecken und ’ne sichere Bank sind. Wenn sich beispielsweise Besuch angekündigt hat und nur noch ein Ei im Kühlschrank wohnt. Oder wenn das Mehl fast alle ist und es zudem noch Sonntag ist! All dies fällt bei mir ziemlich oft zusammen und an genau diesen Sonntagen […]

Our healthy triple challenge

In my little Jewels-kitchen, carrots are solely used to make lunch for my six month old Clementine – mashed and unseasoned. Inedible for me, but loved by her. So for me carrot cake sounds like someone is trying to trick me into eating something healthy! In this case that someone is actually Veronika from the […]

Oh, Du Köstliche….

Jewels: Lebkuchen gibt es in Brooklyn nicht. Und wenn, dann nur in speziellen Läden und zu Apothekenpreisen. Aber den selbst zu backen, kam für mich eigentlich nie in Frage, deswegen fand ich diese Challenge super spannend. Ich dachte immer, dass das total kompliziert und aufwändig ist. Es war aber so einfach und so lecker! Und […]

Jewels wants S’more! Liz nicht.

Es gibt Dinge im Leben, die hat man noch nie ausprobiert. Oft fährt man ja auch ganz gut damit, sich auf seinen Instinkt zu verlassen. Der sagt einem meistens, was einem schmeckt oder eben nicht. Ich jedenfalls hatte noch nie etwas gemacht, das sich „S’more Pie“ nannte. Als Jewels mit dem Rezeptvorschlag in meiner Inbox […]

Hello Autumn!

Jewels and I both contribute to „Food in Motion“ once a month on Holly Becker’s blog decor8. Last month I made a crumble from freshly picked apples from the trees in my garden: These last days have been perfect in our part of Germany! I love waking up to clear skies and crispy cold air. […]

Improvising on two continents…

„Two girls cooking on two continents“? This week it’s more like „Two stressed moms improvising on two continents.“ The plan was to make black forest cake, a traditional German cake. My mom Anne provided her a super simple and popular recipe. Anne is not much of traditional mom in the kitchen. Everything has to be […]

Happy Sacher

I am a big chocolate fan. Big big. So whenever Liz suggests a recipe that has chocolate in it I am easily convinced. This week the chocolate even has a good occasion! Giulia from Audrey’s asked us if we wanted to contribute a post for her blog in the category „Be my guest„. She told us her […]

Tomatenbrot für drinnen und draußen

Neulich habe wir Euch gefragt, was wir mal für Euch kochen oder backen sollen. Es sollte was zum Thema Picknick sein. Neulich war das Wetter aber auch noch gut. Konnte ja keiner ahnen, dass der Sommer zumindest in Münster so plötzlich im Regen untergeht. In New York hatten wir noch etwas länger gutes Wetter. Das […]

Liz & Jewels meet Backbube

Warum sind Foodblogger eigentlich immer Mädchen? Die bekanntesten Spitzenköche sind doch auch Jungs! Vielleicht liegt es an dem weiblichen Mitteilungsbedürfnis.  Wir erzählen eben gerade darüber, was wir so gezaubert haben und tauschen uns darüber aus, warum der Pudding unten angebrannt ist. Jungs behalten solche Missgeschicke wohl lieber für sich. Es gibt aber einen, der ist […]

Vorhang auf!

Es gibt so Pakete, da juchzt man vor Freude, wenn man sie öffnet! Im Grunde juchze ich schon vor Freude, bevor ich ein Paket öffne, denn allein die Tatsache ein Paket zu bekommen, ist schon Freude pur! Das muss am digitalen Zeitalter liegen, in dem man gewohnt ist, Hunderte von Mails, SMS oder fb-Nachrichten am […]

Plum cake: black & white.

We often get asked, if we really don’t discuss the recipe and the styling before we start cooking and setting up our photo. The answer: No, we really don’t! I’m as excited as a little kid before unpacking a present when the email pops up with  Jewels picture! I can’t wait and usually urge Jewels […]

On a fast roll…

Es ist gerade so heiß draußen, dass es schwer fällt, sich in die Küche zu stellen, um dann mit dem Backofen noch mehr Hitze zu produzieren. Ich wollte deswegen ein feines Kuchenrezept teilen, bei dem der Biskuit nur ganz kurz im Ofen ist, nämlich nur 5–8 Minuten! Also genau richtig für die Temperaturen! Das Rezept […]

Lemons or Limes

Honestly I am not sure what the difference really is. To me lemons are yellow and limes are green and they both taste sour. I have a big bag of limes here at home, so why go buy lemons just because the recipe is asking for it? Nah… I don’t know what Liz‘ Lemon Cake […]

Little Hands

Our monthly contribution to the „Food in Motion“ episode over at decor8 is all about berries: This time I had my daughter help me in the kitchen…. Berries taste wonderful on their own, but don’t they taste even better when there is cake around them??? Oh yes! Right now I’m working on my fourth cookbook […]

Strudel-Backen auf der Alm

Wie sieht ein perfekter Tag aus? Na, ich weiß es jetzt mal wieder, denn vor Kurzem verbrachten wir genau einen solchen auf einer Südtiroler Alm! Mit der Seilbahn ging es von Dorf Tirol zur Hochmuth auf 1.200 m, wo uns eine herrliche Berglandschaft mit Blick über Meran erwartete. Wir hatten Glück, denn wir hatten nicht […]

Bear Paws

Wait a minute? Almost the same photo here? What happened?? Well, as you know, for our „challenges“ Liz and I decide on a recipe and then cook or bake it on our separate continents. We don’t show each other the final picture until we are both done. So apparently this week we both had a […]

Two ways to crumble.

Big changes are happening in my life: I have a new kitchen tool. And it is not just any tool, it is a tool that makes me change the way I bake and cook and eat. And my poor husband has to go with it… Well, only until he manages to bring a proper meal […]


Zwischen April und Juni ist Erntezeit für den heimischen Rhabarber. Manch einer traut sich nicht ran an die sauren, roten Stangen, dabei ist es ziemlich einfach im Handumdrehen daraus Tolles zu zaubern. Und: man tut auch noch etwas für die Gesundheit, denn Rhabarber enthält richtig viel Vitamin C und K, Kalium, Magnesium, Phosphor und Eisen. […]

Zwei in der Küche. A Give-Away.

Mein Problem: Ich kann nicht genug bekommen von tollen Kochbüchern! Wenn ich in Buchhandlungen bin, steuer ich immer auf die Kochbuchabteilung zu und schaue, was es so Neues gibt. Dabei ist es immer ganz wichtig, dass sie visuell auch ansprechend und grafisch interessant gestaltet sind. Der Hölker-Verlag schickte mir kürzlich das Kochbuch Zwei in der […]

Gluten Free Bread… So good!

I have never been too successful with baking bread in the past. Last time, I confused yeast with baking powder and wondered why the bread didn’t rise. But even when I do follow the recipe step by step, it doesn’t taste as good as what I can buy at a German bakery. Here in New […]

This week: Challenge for 3!

What?? A challenge for 3? What is going on here? Well this week we are making an exception and are changing our mathematics a little bit: Liz + Jewels + Ronja = Challenge for 3! But who is Ronja?? Ronja is the creator of the blog My World, where she shares her favorite recipes and […]

Green Asparagus Tart with Goat Cheese

In Germany we currently have the very much beloved „Spargelzeit“. For Americans this might sound a little strange because you can get everything at all times all year round, but asparagus in Germany is still a very distinctly seasonal product. During the Spargelzeit Germans eat the white asparagus almost every day. Traditionally we cook it […]

Bread & Butter Pudding

Die letzten Wochen waren hier ein bisschen verrückt, weil Jewels & ich an unserem vierten Kochbuch gearbeitet haben, zur Abwechslung aber mal auf einem Kontinent!!! Die Freude endlich mal wieder zusammen an einem Projekt zu arbeiten, in einer Küche, an einem Set und an den gleichen Rezepten, war groß! Und es hat sich mal wieder […]

S’more Eclairs

Eclairs are known in both of „our“ continents. But I think that in Germany most people don’t know what a „S’more“ is. For the German readers: S’more is the short version for „some more“. Imagine you are child with a full mouth of something sweet and then raise your eyebrows and beg for „some more!“. […]

We eat Americans.

Oh yes, in Germany we eat „Amerikaner“. It is a delicious pastry you can get in every bakery at every corner. I have so many childhood memories about getting Amerikaner with my mom. We have never baked them ourselves though because they were so cheap to buy. My mom said they used to be 90 […]

Mary’s Almond Tart

Jewels: My friend Annie has a mom named Mary. Mary knows how to bake an almond tart like no one else. The recipe is so simple, yet so good. It tastes like soft marzipan on the inside and like crunchy cookies on the outside. Mary was so nice to reveal the recipe to us, I […]

Delicious Meringue Berries

Heute sind wir zu Gast bei der wunderbaren Jeanny vom Blog Zuckerzimtundliebe, während sie im schönen Südafrika auf Safari ist: Liz: Als Jeanny uns fragte, ob wir, während sie in Südafrika weilt, an ihrer Stelle über Süßes schreiben wollen, haben wir natürlich sehr gern zugesagt! Sowohl in Münster als auch in Brooklyn haben wir uns […]

Sweet Braided Bread

Or as us Germans call it: Hefezopf („Yeast Ponytail“). In the US it is mostly known as Challah Bread. Germans like to eat this sweet fluffy bread especially around Easter Time. With some butter and a hot chocolate it is so good. Liz told me how delicious hers was and how her family ate it […]

Baumkuchen Liz & Jewels

Christmas Challenge: Baumkuchen

Just three more days till Christmas, and this time we really challenged each other! We knew we wanted to participate in Simone’s photo challenge „Christmas Cakes“. We were very ambitious and decided to make „Baumkuchen“, a typical German Christmas cake made of horizontal layers and then covered with icing or chocolate. An original „Baumkuchen“ (literally, “tree cake”, because of its tree-trunk-like shape) is made […]

Challenge: Glühweinkekse

Liz: A few weeks ago we were asked by the wonderful sisters Thea & Toni Neubauer if we would consider contributing to „Sister Magazine„, a beautiful online magazine! And of course we were thrilled and excited! Two days ago, the Christmas edition of „Sister Magazine“ was published and the article about us is entitled, „A […]

Salted Caramel Pie

Jewels: My husbands loves me extra much when I bake this pie. It is the sweet that meets the salty in this creamy layer on a crunchy bottom. WOW. So good… I told Liz about this pie and she wasn’t thrilled about the unhealthy sounding recipe and unfortunately her tongue agreed. She did not like […]

Challenge: Plum Pie with Caramelized Almonds

For this week’s challenge we decided to make a traditional German plum pie. For some excitement we added the caramelized almonds instead of the classic Streusel us Germans like so much. The almonds definitely give it a nice crunch factor. I am always nervous when making caramel though, it literally stresses me out to the […]

Salted Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Liz: Recently, I started liking sweet and salty together! Last week I fell in love with the ‚Hot Chocolate Diva‘, today Jewels and I tried „Salted Chocolate Chunk Cookies“. And again I have to admit: I love the mix of sweet and salty! As long as I can remember it’s always been a difficult task […]

Challenge no 12: Makrönchen

Oh yes, we are feeling christmassy a little early this year. Although these little Makrönchen are so delicious I could eat them all year! Also, it only takes about 7 seconds to make them. All you need to do is mix 100g of almond flour with 75g of powder sugar. Then add one egg white and 1tsp of almond extract (alternatively you could […]

All White Theme – Challenge no 11

Liz and I decided that we want to participate in the All White Theme of the JungleFrog Cooking blog by our friend Simone. We decided to both bake a German Sandkuchen. Turns out the cake is not much more exciting than the name and definitely needs a good side dish like a plum compote for example. […]

Pears everywhere – Aus dem Birnengarten

For the September issue of the magazine „Münster!“ I had the pleasure of contributing the recipes and pictures about the PEAR-Story.  Thank you „Münster!“ for having me! Before working on the recipes I didn’t know that there are over 5.000 different varieties of pears known worldwide. Pears are one of the world’s oldest cultivated fruits. The greek […]

Buttermilk Cornbread

Martha’s 2nd chance – Challenge no 8

Buttermilk Cornbread: our challenge this week. We decided to give Martha Stewart a second chance again although her lemon tart recipe a few weeks ago didn’t really work out. This time it worked a bit better, although I have to admit we both weren’t too excited about the result. We both thought that the cornbread was […]

Windbeutel_Cream Puffs

Puff the magic Giveaway: Challenge no 6

Is there any better way to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon than with a good cup of coffee and something sweet and yummy? Well, last Sunday was one of these slow and lazy days and I decided to work on our new challenge cream puffs („Windbeutel„) with chocolate filling. I have to admit I had […]
