Dark Chocolate Smoothie

What if I told you that chocolate was the healthiest food in the world? Would you believe me? Because it’s true. It has iron, magnesium, copper, a ton of antioxidants, and even fiber.

German Pretzel Buns

If you have been following my Instagram or previous blog recipes, such as my German Mac and Cheese (Nudelauflauf), you can probably guess that I come from a German family.

Strawberry Overnight ‘Groats’

WHAT ARE GROATS?? I’m guessing mostly everyone has heard of Buckwheat. Maybe just from the movie The Little Rascals? Buckwheat Groats are the seeds from a buckwheat plant! And yes, buckwheat is a seed, and not actually ‘wheat’. Confusing, right? IS BUCKWHEAT HEALTHY? Absolutely. I wouldn’t have a blog post dedicated to it if it […]
