Speculoos, Spread and Spice Mix Recipes
Speculaas were a special Christmas cookie but now both they and a paste made with crushed cookies, a popular alternative to peanut butter and chocolate spread, are year round favorites. Here are recipes for a quick and easy Cookie, the Spread and a 'Ready To Use' Spice Mix.

Speculaas the Original Biscoff, a Recipe
Speculaas are spiced caramelized cookies found everywhere in Germany, from accompanying that "cup of coffee" at the hair stylists to pavement cafés. But they have been part of St. Nicholas and Christmas holiday traditions for centuries, long before they became known as the less spicy "Biscoff".

North Germany's Friesentorte Recipe
It is a delicious creamy calorie bomb, and a North and East Friesland specialty. Friesentorte the "special occasion" Frisian cream cake that accompanies a Friesentee, (Frisian Tea), Ceremony on Sundays and celebrations. Or just because you feel like it.

East Friesland and its Tea Culture
Across Germany coffee is more popular than beer, except for the windswept coastal marshlands and islands of East Friesland in northwest Germany. There the number one beverage is tea. A Frisian Blend, with its own tea ceremony, and anyone who prefers coffee is a "Koffjenoese". A Coffee Nose.

Germany and its Turkish German Communities
There was no history of immigration in Germany when the first Turkish ‘guest workers’ arrived as cheap labor to fuel the country’s ‘Economic Miracle’. Not expected to stay fifty years later Turkish Germans have powered German industry, settled in its cities and their influence is seen everywhere.

Flammkuchen a German Specialty, Recipe
Flammkuchen is literally "Flaming Cake"; a wafer thin pizza type crust topped by a delicious combination of classic ingredients in a creamy sauce. A year-round German favorite originating in Alsace, a region which has spent much of the last centuries belonging to either France or Germany.

The Modern Car, It All Began With Benz
Mercedes Benz began as a dream. Bertha Benz believed in her husband Carl and his vision of a Horseless Carriage. Patented on January 29th 1886, she made the first ever long distance journey with an internal combustion engine powered vehicle. From a love story the modern automobile was born.

German and Mark Twain
"The Awful German Language" is an essay written by Mark Twain after a stay in "The Land of Poets and Thinkers", where the language can be almost as complicated as its reputation. But a sense of humor helped when he tried to learn it, making the process if not easier then at least fun.

Germany's Window Boxes and Balcony Gardens
Every change of season means "Makeover Time" for Germany's window boxes. Carefully tended, colorful plant filled containers are everywhere. A bizarre mixture sometimes but wonderful sight on door stoops, window ledges, trailing down from apartment balconies and walls of ancient farm houses.

Trümmerfrauen, Germany's Post War Heroines
The foundations for a "New Germany" were laid by its "Trümmerfrauen", Rubble Women. Aged from 15 to 50 and often hungry, they were post war Germany's heroines. With bare hands, and hard work, they cleared the rubble from the streets and buildings of their war torn cities.
