I enjoy eating and cooking foods from different cultures and of different styles.
I love fruit. They are so easy to prepare, so I typically have raw fruit with breakfast or dessert and have started including them in sauces.
I like my vegetables and would like to include more of a variety in my cooking.
I love bread. My husband is the bread chef. He makes pizza dough and rustic breads from scratch (no bread machine). And, I like my starch: rice, noodles, pasta, potatoes. I'm also interested in eating more whole grains and seeds such as quinoa.
I don't eat a lot of the meat but I enjoy a good juicy hamburger and tender ribs once in a while. However, I want to include more beans, tofu, and other sources of protein.
With dairy products, I don't drink much cow milk anymore, and I haven't had goat milk before. I drink more soy than rice milk. I still make milk-based desserts, like tapioca pudding, and eat cheese, cottage cheese, and yogurt. I haven't used mayonnaise, sour cream, or cream cheese in my cooking for a long while now but for recipes that call for them, I use some combination of yogurt, cottage cheese, and cornstarch.

Favorite Restaurants in Bamberg, Germany:
To take visitors: Schlenkerla Brewery
The famous brewery preserved the old tradition of smoking malt in the brewing process (a technique used in the 1500s). The unique favorite dish I had there was an onion stuffed with ground pork. I wish I could describe that better...
For casual fine dining: Wilde Rose
Germany has strict regulations on asparagus, so it's harvested and consumed between April and June. Favorite dish: White asparagus, with a chicken ***** on the side, laced with hollandaise sauce.
There are too many in Bamberg...
Here's our all-around favorite: Kartoffeln Co. (Potato Company)
Never thought a restaurant in a train station could be so good. They had everything you can do with a potato: fresh potato chips for appetizer, pizza with a potato base (instead of dough), and much more. My favorite dish was chicken with a tropical curry sauce. Hmm... I don't remember potato though.
Favorite Restaurant in Nuremberg, Germany:
They grilled their sausages in the middle of the one-room restaurant and served them on tin plates. Nuremberg bratwurst (seasoned short and thin sausages), Sauerkraut with caraway seeds, and rolls with a good crust.
