For sauce
-1/3 can tomatoes, cubed (you can eyeball it

Toppings, proportions are up to you…if you want more of something, DO IT!
-smoked salmon
-red onion, sliced
-leeks, sliced
-cream cheese
-fresh mozzarella

Combine ingredients for crust and knead, then let rise for about half an hour. smooth out until about 2 cm thick on backing sheet and bake for about 10 minutes. Remove, add sauce, cheese and then toppings. Bake 10-15 minutes, until cheese starts to brown a bit on top. Enjoy!

Ginger/cheese muffins. I can’t share the recipe because I got it from a German cookbook I have, and it’s neither mine to distribute, nor is it on the internet for me to share. If you do find a recipe for savory muffins using ginger and cheese though, I highly recommend it!

A spaetzle recipe I made up. I’ll post the recipe at some point, but I want to do a whole series or perhaps even a blog on spaetzle, so I need some time to develop more recipes! For now, I’ll say it was really tasty and if you really, really want the recipe now, ask me nicely in a comment with your email addy (or contact me if you know how) and I’ll give it to you!
