Cooking With Us - E14 - Wienerschnitzel and German Potato Salad

At the original Hofbrauhaus in Munich, Germany!

Theron and I have recently (well, fairly recently now) returned from a three week trip in Europe!

 The last couple spots we visited were Vienna, Austria, and Munich, Germany.  

For this reason, Wienerschnitzel and German-style potato salad were fresh on our minds when trying to think up our next episode of Cooking With Us

Not to mention, Theron just really wanted it!

So we did our best to recreate authentic German potato salad and German/Austrian Wienerschnitzel - the latter being delightfully simple to make, not to mention delicious!

The video is a bit longer than normal, so my apologies for that! 
 Don't forget to uprez and watch full screen. 
(And, as always, please share!!)

Also - the 2nd camera angle is Theron trying out his new canon point and shoot.
The recipe and transcript will follow, as well as a plug for the rad page I got these recipes from!
 (For the most part!)

 And just for a little added incentive, here is what your finished product will look like:

Yummy yummy!

Leigh's Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

So I took these photos a month ago, when my friend Leigh came over to cook four batches of Lemon Ricotta Pancakes.

Yes. Four batches!

She knew we had a big kitchen and that, thanks to my husband, we also own all kinds of gadgets that would make her endeavor easier than what she had on hand.

 Namely: the Mixer.

The recipe is simple, and I will post it below - for one batch. If you want to be as crazy as Leigh and make four, by all means - go for it! 

Also, I am posting this bc the photos are just kind of crazy ;)

As you can clearly see, Leigh knows her endeavor is nuts, but she's totally ready for it!
