An Engagement Party fit for a queen

      Every Christmas Season, my girlfriends Petra and Petra come to visit....it has become a traditional thing and I look forward to it every year! After a few visits filled with just Christmas Markets(do not get me wrong the markets are great), but afterwhile...well a girl needs more than just gl├╝hwein!!!! Plus Berlin is a city filled with history, why not enjoy it? So, this visit we decided to go to the Charlottenburg Palace. According to Wikepedia, it is the largest palace in Berlin. For more history info just go to Wikepdia!

Okay, so as any castle, this one had a gazillion rooms(bedrooms, sitting rooms, libraries etc) Funny, you never get to see the kitchen(for that matter the bathroom)! I wonder what kind of take away you got back in the 18th century!??

One may not get to see the kitchen, but in this palace you got to see ALL the dishes! There even was one room where the walls were covered.(Will post about that room later). The pictures I would like to share with you today, show you a tablescape that was done for an engagement party! The last pictures are just my favorite dishes....I asked a museum person if I could borrow them for a dinner party I was having, can you guess her answer?!






Still trying to figure out why one needs sooo much silverware!






Happy Thursday Everyone. Be sure to stop by other great blogs for more tablescape inspiration!

Cookbooks Anyomous

Yes that´s where I should be....at a CA meeting! Quick where´s my sponsor.....oh I know where she is, she is asleep in her bed as it is only 07:25 am here in Germany. And to be honest the best sponsor she is not, as I am sharing my bed with cooksbooks from her kitchen........maybe she needs to be at a meeting!!!!!


This Christmas I bought "the smitten kitchen Cookbook" for my sponsor and I am now just getting to read th book myself. I NEED MY OWN COPY! What a great book and so many good ideas and awesome recipes.




So, if you have some time today, go to your  local bookstore and pick up your own copy of the smitten kitchen!

Potato ala Pioneer Woman

Thanks to the Pioneer Woman and my niece for this weeks entry for new recipe sunday! Pioneer Woman....for the recipe and my niece for doing the first test run!







Although I have just about ever gadget you can imagine in the kitchen, a potato masher I do not have!!!(I will be changing that soon). So we did as the pioneer woman suggests, we used a glass. So, they are not so prety, but the crash hot potatoes sure did taste good.

You can find the recipe on her website: http://thepioneerwoman.com
or  in her cookbook: The Pioneer Woman Cooks

Happy Sunday Everyone
