Germany Round-up / January Destination Denmark

Welcome to the Germany Round-up for MKMW! Our December destination was Germany and what a wonderful selection of German foods we have to share...

First up we have a beautiful Log Cake from Torview Toronto, who also shares a cute candy cane craft we'll have to remember for next year!


Next up we have a wonderful breakfast treat, German Coffee Cake from Chaya at My Sweet and Savory, her husband loved this delicious looking cake!


Here is a beautiful German Cherry and Almond Strudel (Kirschstrudel) from Janet at the taste space. Another yummy breakfast or dessert treat.


Margaret at Tea and Scones has outdone herself again with a complete German meal of Rotwurst, Spätzle, Brotchen and a beautiful holiday Stollen.


CJW at Unchained Kitchen made a fun German dish of Pretzel Roll Bratwurst Sliders to conquer a craving, yum!


Joanna at In Search of Lost Time made New Year's Eve Sauerkraut, to ring in the New Year, an old family tradition, what fun! I love family traditions.


Over at our house, I made a German Puff Pancake for the very first time (haven't posted it on my blog yet) and the kids and I loved it. We especially had fun peeking through the oven window watching the pancake jump as it puffed up and baked in our cast iron skillet.


Thank you to everyone who participated with our December destination Germany! I know it was a busy time and tough to get things done. Sorry this round-up is so late!

Time to get back on track for the New Year, right? Our January destination is Denmark as suggested by Janet at The Taste Space, thank you Janet!

Please make a Danish recipe and post it to your blog with a link back to My Kitchen My World, then leave a comment here with a link to your post for the round-up. Please post and comment by January 31st for a round-up on February 1st.

Also if you have any destination suggestions please post that in a comment as well, we need someplace fun to visit for February :)

Take care,

Afghanistan Round-up & January Destination

Finally, the November - Afghanistan Round-up -- thanks for being patient with me guys! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and are welcoming in the New Year with lots of excitement!

First up for Afghanistan is a dish of Afghani Biryani from Torviewtoronto, a beautiful rice dish that looked extra flavorful.


Next up we have two Afghan dishes from Searching for Spice that went together perfectly -- Afghan Potato Salad and Beef Kebabs, they look wonderful!


Our third selection this month comes from Megha at Live to eat!!! who made some fun looking Gluten Free Sweet Potato Kebabs, yum!


Next up is a gorgeous dessert from Unchained Kitchen -- Pistachio Rose Ice Cream Sandwiches , looks amazing, what a treat!


Our 5th entry this month is from new traveler Family & Food & Other Things, who made a delicious dinner of cinnamon spiced Afghani Meatballs with Noodles tossed in Yogurt that her whole family enjoyed! Welcome to MKMW :)


And last but certainly not least we have a beautiful dessert of Afghan Baklava from Renee at Every Pot and Pan. What a perfect way to finish up our Afghanistan Round-up.


Thank you to everyone who participated, it was great to see all of the Afghani dishes!

I will be working on the December -- Germany round-up over the next few days and get that posted ASAP. I know it was a difficult time for lots of people to keep up with over the holidays and am so glad we still had some participants.

Our January destination will be Denmark, suggest by Janet at the taste space, thanks for a great suggestion Janet! I don't think MKMW has ever visited Denmark so that should be a fun one. You can leave a comment in this post with a link to your Danish dish or in the comments on the Germany round-up which should be posted in a few days :)

Happy New Year,
