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.
