German Meatballs with Caraway Mushroom Cream Sauce

German Meatballs with Caraway Mushroom Cream Sauce

My recipe today for Hearty German Meatballs with Caraway Mushroom Cream Sauce is a “recipe re-do” from one I shared years ago on my blog (January of 2012 to be exact), which I called simply enough German Meatballs in Cream Sauce. This new version uses heavy cream in place of the evaporated milk I used back in 2012, does away with the beer completely and replaces it with beef stock, and I added a bunch of fresh mushrooms and stone ground mustard to pump up the flavor. Wunderbar!!

Apple Cider Braised Chicken Breasts

Apple Cider Braised Chicken Breasts

I had chicken breasts in the freezer, apple cider in the fridge, a half a box of gingersnaps left in the pantry, a few sweet potatoes that I needed to use before they went bad, and friends coming for dinner.

The result was this Apple Cider Braised Chicken with Sweet Potatoes and Gingersnaps. This dinner FAR surpassed my expectations, and was a massive hit with our guests! Winner! Winner! Chicken dinner!!

German Bee Sting Cake (Bienenstich)

German Bee Sting Cake (Bienenstich)

Before I started baking, I was a little intimidated to tackle this traditional German Bee Sting Cake. Our BFF’s have been to Germany many times over the years, and they’ve spoken so highly of this cake I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to do it justice.

Since I was gifting this cake to them for the many thoughtful acts they’ve done for us in the past, I especially wanted this cake to be amazing!
