Chinese Cabbage with Pork and Rice

Hey everybody!

I just wanted to quickly share a yummy recipe with you before I'm going out tonight. The amount I used was enough for two smaller servings or one reeeeeally big serving. As I'm not talented with cooking the exact right amount food for any number of servings, you might need to judge yourselves how much you need ;) 

First, pick some Chinese cabbage leaves and wash them. I used around a third of the cabbage which probably was a bit too much for one serving...

Of course, you'll need some rice. And some meat. I used pork (approx. 80 gr), but you can also go for chicken or turkey.

Cut the cabbage leaves into strips. You can cut multiple leaves at once as it's faster and it doesn't need to be done very neatly.

Then fry the pork strips and add the Chinese cabbage strips when the pork is golden. Don't worry, that pile will shrink as it cooks. If the Chinese cabbage gets burnt, add a little bit of water.

You can add any spices you want, I like to add a little bit of salt, pepper and soy sauce. You can add or leave out anything you want. 

Et voilà! Enjoy that delicious and healthy meal :) 
(Note: I didn't pile that entire cabbage onto the rice bed for aesthetic reasons ;))

Best Chocolate Cake EVER

Hi folks!

We wish you a happy happy new year! Hope you all arrived safely in 2015 and ate some nice, festive meals the past weeks ;) Holiday time surely is THE time to gain weight :)
To support that weight gain process, we'll show you the best chocolate cake ever! In the past days, we already baked this twice and it's so yummy! The recipe we used is this one here (only German) and we'll show you some step-by-step inspirations.

Melt 500g of dark chocolate and 250g of butter

Mix 200g of wheat flour, 1 package of baking soda (~8g), 8 eggs and around 200-300g of white sugar (depending on how sweet you want the cake to be)

Mix both chocolate and dough together and pour it onto a baking sheet.

Bake the cake at 200°C for 20-25 minutes.
