As it happens, I'll be in Cham (the'blinker) all day tomorrow, and would be more than happy to take some of those off your hands at absolutely no cost to you or your immediate family!
Dang! I missed your great offer.
Here are some nerdy-looking ones in lieu (also made some green tea cookies but they were much paler than these which were baked last year):

Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

Hi

Can one use flour instead of the ground almonds in the recipe? For those with a nut allergy, that is? If so, what flour would you recommend?

Thank you!

There is no recipe as such. I just experiment and cook with feeling So just chop the vegetables, tofu, whatever. Then add some water depending on how dry or liquidy you want your food.

Add mixture of hot spices, green/red chillies, tomatoes, olives. Cover the pan and in 10 minutes you are done. All cooked with water power and with no oils or fats. Once served I sprinkle nuts and mixed seeds on top.

My continuation of trying to cook Chinese food from scratch in Switzerland (and also learning to cook at all)... Three Cup Chicken (三杯雞), Chinese Egg Tarts (蛋挞), Chinese broccoli (kale), and steamed rice for a complete meal!

Oh, Chinese broccoli = Chinese kale. It's not the same thing as regular kale. Here's a link I found that explains the difference: http://www.foodsubs.com/Greenckg.html

I actually bought Thai young broccoli from Lian Hua (across from Bahnhof Wiedikon) for the veggie dish. And I used a bunch of Thai basil leaves for the chicken dish, because that's what they had at Lian Hua. Not sure if it's the same as regular basil, but when in Zürich, I gotta make do with what they have here!

Snowman cupcakes for tomorrow's BCT kids Christmas party. They are cinnamon and almond with raisins in. Should know better by now than to only make 12 cupcakes - as now I don't have one to test/taste!

They are too cute for words, Wattsli. Did you make the snowmen yourself too?


Here is the easiest but delicious dessert which is relatively low in calories:

Pear (or apple) Touronde
(recipe found in Die neue Landküche by M Veyrat and G Gilbert)

3 or 4 pears (I used Alexander)
a pat of butter
2-3 teaspoons raw sugar or white sugar
6 tablespoons creme fraiche

Heat oven to 195 degrees C. Generously butter 4 ramekins. Peel and core the fruit. Slice into half cm slices. Arrange them upright in the ramekins. Sprinkle with sugar (not too much if your fruit is very sweet). Bake in the oven for 20 minutes (longer if your fruit is firm; apple generally needs 7-10 minutes more, especially the denser kind). Take out and fill the gaps with creme fraiche. Bake again for another 5 minutes. Let cool and serve warm.
