Hello to all the great cooks and bakers in here. I am originally from Germany, but since I meet my hubby, who's in the Military, we have been traveling quiet a bit :) Guess I got traveling in my blood, due to my dad. He was working for a World Wide Engineering Company and was lucky to live in East Africa for a few years as a child and then again North Africa in my teens ... I loved it and I'm so grateful for all the Memories and History we got to encounter ! When I moved back home (Germany) in my twenties I was never to move again ... well, that was till I got married and lived in different Sates of the US and overseas in Turkey ... where we've come to looooove the food :) One lucky day I was browsing the Internet and came across this web page and ever since this is THE Site to look for great, delicious recipes !!! I sure am not the best cook in the world, but most of my 'Creations' turn out pretty good :D And I have made quiet a few yummy dinners and wonderful cookies from your recipes.
