Today there is going to be no nostalgic excursions. I threw this stew quickly together for dinner the other day, and it turned out very well. It’s got a somewhat soupy consistency because I didn’t brown the meat, I sweated it together with onions, just like my mom taught me. Then I added a few […]

I read through the ingredient list, glance over the instructions, and I swear, every time I have the same feeling: what’s so special about it? You see those five, six ingredients […]
