Welcome to my website that features authentic German recipes for homemade meals. You find as well information and tips on how to manage German living in America. I am a German grandmother called Oma. I grew up in Germany and lived there until I moved to the United States with three small children in 1989. I have raised four children and within two years became the grandmother of four. I was a teacher prior to becoming a full-time stay at home mom.
Taught by my ancestors, I learned multifaceted life skills within and beyond the home. I have a deep sense of identity rooted in the heritage and culture from my childhood home and upbringing in Germany.

Furthermore, I provide basic Baking Recipes and tips on how to decorate cakes.

I want to reach out to the largest immigrant group of German-Americans as well as anyone interested in the wide range the German culture has to offer. Authentic German recipes and food are more than sauerkraut and schnitzel and German living more than Oktoberfest and lederhosen.
