“Effigy: Poison and the City”

Recently, I was asked to screen the German film “Effigy: Poison and the City” directed by Udo Flohr. Cato Böhmer played by Elisa Thiemann, is a young legal assistant who went against societies expectations to work in Law. Fraulein Böhmer proves her worth, and when a local official brings an accusation of possible arsenic poisoning to Senator Droste’s office, they must investigate. The movie Effigy” Poison and the City” is not a quick action film.

Weihnachtspunsch Recipe -German Christmas Punch

Since last Winter I’ve tried a few different recipes for Weihnachtspunsch, (tough job, I know). At first glance, the ingredients seemed odd… Chocolate and Marzipan in a wine drink? You will find Wine based drinks, Eierlikor based drinks, Juice based drinks, and even non-alcoholic punches. How to make Weihnachtspunch or German Christmas Punch Let Melt, then continue to stir for another minute Add the Chocolate and Marzipan-

Weihnachtspunsch or German Christmas Punch is rich with the flavors of Christmas! Wine, citrus, spices AND the seemingly crazy addition of Chocolate and Marzipan! It totally works! And, fair warning, it can sneak up on you.

German Side Dish Ideas for Thanksgiving Dinner

When I was growing up, my mother never made the traditional American Thanksgiving meal of big roast Turkey, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, etc. Still, after being married to an American, I learned to make the American meal, and incorporate a few German side dish ideas for Thanksgiving Dinner. You may not get out of putting marshmallows on sweet potatoes (I still don’t care much for that), but you can bring some delicious German foods to the table that won’t look so strange (and will compliment the Turkey very well). Käse Spätzle Macaroni and Cheese is as American as Thomas Jefferson, but you can switch things up a little with Käse Spätzle!
