We have a new bloggie!
We are proud to announce that we have a new bloggie. Mommie made it for us 'CCause we said that we needed one. She always mumbles hat we are not allowed to blog on her foodie blog more than once a week thus only for Weekend Cat Blogging. But we tink this is far toooo less for us so we insisted on a bloggie for our own. See! now we have one and are very proud! We will continue to blog for WCB on moms FoodBlog. Additionally we will blog here. We hope you feel welcome and will visit us as often as you like. Please keep in mind: We will have to work on this bloggie in the near future, we'll have to update our blogroll and all the other stuff around here. So in this very moment it's a little bit empty around here... hugs'n'kisses Kashim & Othello

[Weekend Herb Blogging] - Grilled chicken & tagliatelle with veggies
This week WHB is hosted by Rinku from Cooking in Westchester When I saw Kalyn writing about "How to Make Juicy Grilled Chicken Breasts That Are Perfect Every Time" and all those wonderful mouthwatering chicken recipes she wrote afterwards I decided that it was time to cook chicken myself. :blush: With Kaylns really good tips in the post above and my own experimental spirit it turned out to be a very mellow and juicy chicken experience :love:
For the marinade I used balsamic vinegar, olive oil and my beloved ras el hanout.
I marinated the chicken over night.
Heat a pan, roast the breasts for about 5 minutes. Add slices of nectarine and roast foranother aprox. 5 minutes.
I had some leftover stuffing when I made my stuffed giant mushrooms so I used this as a basic for my tagliatelle sauce.
I only added some chicken stock, fresh cocktail tomatoes to the stuffing and let it simmer for serveral minutes. Violá! :;):
For the herby part of the dish I added fresh leaves of basil and coriander.

For larger images just klick the thumbnails above :;):
Angelika has a live dream and let it come true through her "live dream project" as she calls it.
Over the past more than 9 weeks she shared the whole project with us, let us see all the proceedings going on in her life and her house.
Now it's nearly finished and only a few days ahead there will be a big party to see Angelika's dream come true.
Please visit her blog to see how it all began and what happened ever after...

Garten-Koch-Event: Rhabarber - Halbzeit...
Die Hälfte des Monats ist fast wieder rum und damit neigt sich auch der Event (fast) schon wieder seinem Ende zu. Viele sehr leckere Rezepte sind bereits eingetroffen und harren darauf bestaunt zu werden. :;):
"Die Zeit ist zu kostbar, um sie mit falschen Dingen zu verschwenden." - Heinz RühmannDeswegen, schnell noch einen Beitrag für den Garten-Koch-Event Rhabarber kreieren und hier einsenden.
Wer kann diesen Köstlichkeiten widerstehen?
Sus zeigt uns ihren Rhabarber-Marzipan-Streusel-Kuchen . Marzipan und Rhabarber ... eine süsse Verführung!
Ulrike hat einen umgedrehten Rhabarberkuchen gebacken, der gleich von der Gärtnerin für den Muttertag nachgebacken und für sehr lecker befunden wurde.
Gabi schmeisst ein äusserst leckeres Rhubarb Crumble ins Rennen, das Crumble Fans wie ich einer bin unbedingt mal ausprobieren sollten.
Jan ist mit einer für mich ungewöhnlichen Kreation dabei: Rührei mit Rhabarber nach Michel Roux.
Rhabarberhonig gibts bei Andrea in der jungen Küche. Interessanter Name ... lasst euch überraschen :^^:
Rike ist mit einem Rhabarber-Aprikosen-Kuchen dabei, der auch sehr lecker zu sein verspricht.
In der Hüttenhilfe wurde ein leckeres und sehr gesundes Spargel-Rhabarber-Gemüse gekocht. Eingereicht von Sebastian.
Sogar ein englischsprachiger Beitrag hat uns diesmal erreicht: Kat hat sehr leckere Rhubarb Crumble Squares with Orange Zest ausprobiert das wirklich sehr yummy aussieht.
Franz verwöhnt uns mit einem farbenfrischen und sehr sehr leckeren Rhabarber-Törtchen mit Ingwer und Vanille.
Barbara hat eine Entenbrust auf Rhabarbergemüse gezaubert, die nach fachkätzischer Prüfung verzehrt werden durfte...
Mrs. Q. hat sich selbst mit leckeren Kokos-Rhabarber-Muffins verwöhnt, von denen wir diesmal leider nix abgekriegt haben :(

[Weekend Herb Blogging] - Oven baked Chicken, tomatoes & fried potatoes
This week WHB is hosted by Pat from Up a Creek without a PatL I've not been cooking very often lately as you may have noticed. But today is Mothers Day and me and my brother made lunch for our little family.
lost his fight yesterday after many days of brave fight. When she read the last - not so good news - when TeaCup was still fighting mommy lit a candle :22: and set it next to Pauls :22: candle which is always burning here. She asked him to take care of TeaCup ...
Rest in Peace little TeaCup!
Our deepest condolences, hugs and purrs
to Megan & family and all the other Bad Kitty Cats.
The :22: is still burning for him
hosted by Gärtnerin at Gartenblog
In der neuen Runde im Garten-Koch-Event dreht sich alles um Rhabarber. Was könnte auch besser passen für diese Runde? Wenn man in den letzten Tagen durch die FoodBlogs gesurft ist hat man durchaus den Eindruck Rhabarber sei in aller Munde und Kochtöpfe... Das ist ja auch kein Wunder, denn er gilt ja auch als Frühlingsbote, da er das erste Gemüse im Jahr ist, das im Freiland wächst. Lang ist seine Saison ja nicht, denn meist ist Mitte Juni die Erntezeit dann auch schon wieder vorbei! Deswegen freuen wir - Sandro und ich - uns bereits jetzt auf eure leckeren Rhabarber-Rezepte.Einsendeschluss: 31.Mai.07 00:00 Uhr Wers noch nicht kennt kann hier nochmal die FAQ bzw Teilnahmebedingungen nachlesen.

Blog-Event XXIII - Antipasti, Tapas, Mezze - Kleine Happen rund um's Mittelmeer
Griechische Spiesschen & pikant süsse Birnen
- Schweinefleisch beim Fleischer in max.0,5 cm dünne Scheiben schneiden lassen.
- Gyrosmischung mit Olivenöl zu einer Marinade vermischen (( Eventuell etwas Wasser oder Suppe beimengen )) und das Schweinefleisch darin gut 24 Stunden marinieren.
- Das Fleisch aus der Marinade nehmen und leicht trockentupfen, dann um die Spiesse wickeln (( wenn man das Fleisch ein wenig dreht beim drumrumwickeln, dann siehts nachher schöner aus - erfordert jedoch auch ein wenig Fingerfertigkeit )) .
- In einer Pfanne die Spiesse kross anbraten. Rausnehmen und warmstellen.
- Im Bratrückstand die geviertelten Birnen rasch anbraten. Den Honig leicht drüberträufeln. Eventuell etwas von der Marinade dazugeben.
- Auf einem Teller mit den Spiesschen anrichten. Dazu passt am besten ein resches Baguette - kurz in Olivenöl/Knoblauch angebraten.

And we should say thank you to those who kept WCB going when Claire was no longer able to do so: Thanks a lot you lovely kitty bloggers out there! But there is also something that makes us very sad: Over at the Bad Kitty Cats Megan is very sad and worried about TeaCup her beloved littlekitty who is seriously ill and needs all support he can get to get well again!

Sweet potatoes & minced beef in coconut milk
Since it's Labour Day in Austria and I am not in a mood to go out today - despite the truly wonderful weather outside - I decided to mix and match something out of the fridge... At least that was the plan... but when I tucked my head into the fridge all I came out with was a sweet potatoe and some minced beef along with some coconut milk - not much, huh? But what I came up with was yet another very quick, easy and spicy lunch. Lucky me! :blush: :blush:
