My Creative Month – October/November/December 2016

I have a lot of catching up to do. Sadly, for various reasons, my blog came really short in 2016 and early 2017. It is part of my New Year’s Resolution to change that. So first of all I would like to catch up with all the things I had planned to post about after mid-October but didn’t get around to.

October

October was by far the busiest month—and the one where I did the most in the entire year. It is always a particularly busy month since there is both Halloween and the beginning of a new semester coming up at the end of it.

A lot of things came short last year. Luckily, Halloween (for a change) wasn’t one of them. There were a lot more things that I wanted to do for Halloween, but at the end, I’m pretty happy about what I did get done:

Fourth of July BBQ Recipes and Ideas

For this year’s Independence Day BBQ, I tried out a lot of great new recipes. It seems to be a common misconception here in Germany that American cooking and baking consists merely of unhealthy and greasy fast food. I love proving people wrong in this respect, for which an America-themed Fourth of July celebration is quite handy. 🙂

Confetti Rice Salad

I found this awesome confetti rice salad recipe on the website USA Kulinarisch. Since that recipe is a main course and I wanted it as a side salad, I adapted it a little bit.

Puff Pastry Snacks with Apple Sauce Filling

These puff pastry snacks are a quick and easy but tasty treat for a cold day. I love sweet pancakes with apple sauce, sugar and cinnamon. And I’m still in the middle of trying out new recipe ideas with puff pastry. What I like about it is that you can just have it in the fridge and use it whenever you need something quickly.

These are a neat combination of puff pastry with my favorite pancake topping. The cinnamon makes it a fitting snack for the Christmas season, but of course they taste just as good at any other time around the year. Continue reading

Pizza Rolls Recipe

These pizza rolls are an easy, quick, and delicious snack for breakfast or any other time of the day. They can be eaten hot from the oven or cold as a snack to go.

All you need is pizza dough, grated cheese, and whatever else you like to eat on your pizza.

The original inspiration for these pizza rolls came from those awesome Vegan Pizza Snails, but mine turned out more like filled bread rolls you might find at the bakery.

The good thing about these rolls is that—just like with pizza—you can put anything you like on them. Here are two suggestions:

Original Pizza-Style Rolls

I used store-bought pizza dough because it is quicker, but of course you can also make your own. Just make sure to have a square-shaped dough. Cut a few stripes and top them with tomato paste.

Season with herbs and spices to taste. Then top with anything you like. Don’t forget the grated cheese. That’s the best part. Okay, I admit it, I just love cheese! 😉

Roll the stripes into little rolls, try to make sure that as little as possible of the topping comes out. If it does, push it back in a little. With the opening on the bottom, place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.

Bake for about 20-25 minutes. They need as much time as the pizza dough would usually need, but remember that even if they look crisp outside, the many layers of dough in the middle need time to bake through as well.

Et voilà! It didn’t take long until they were all eaten up.

Sweet Pizza Rolls

We like to make sweet pizza, so I thought why not sweet pizza rolls.

Top your pizza stripes with crème fraîche or double creme (whatever you have). Get some dried fruit of your choice. I used apricots and figs.

Chop up the dried fruit into little pieces and top your pizza stripes with them. Again, don’t forget the grated cheese. 😉

Roll up, place on baking tray and into the over for about 20-25 minutes.

And here you go. My folks just loved them…
