There are these days. It happens to all of us. It’s time to make lunch and I just don’t know what to make. Honestly speaking, it happens to me quite often. Well, if I’m at a loss, these spinach dumplings are just the thing! They are easy to make and always a hit with my boys. They contain enough spinach so my kids and I can enjoy healthy nutrients. They taste positively decadent, without needing any high-price ingredients. And they are wonderful to freeze and eat later. Here is my recipe for cooking delicious spinach dumplings. Sometimes it helps to have a visual: Watch the video below where we will walk you through every step of how to make them. Enjoy!

Have you ever had “Tiroler Gröstl”? A local take on bubble and squeak, this bacon, meat, onion and potato fry-up is the kind of hearty fare that will set you right.

Outside the wind whistles and the rain pours, but inside the warm farmhouse kitchen it's nice and cosy. The scent of freshly baked cookies fills the air and reminds me of my childhood, when we would pinch the odd biscuit straight from the tray as soon as they came out of the oven. With Christmas just around the corner, I am looking forward to making my own cookies once again this year. Farmer and baking expert Karoline Schapfl kindly invited me into her kitchen in Lans to share some of her top tips.

He would have so preferred to stay downstairs and immerse himself in the laughter, merriment and dancing, if only as a silent observer. "Even as a child I was often afraid of missing out on something."
