Why Katy's Barking Gecko ?!

I love to travel, I love to cook and to try new recipes...

After returning from yet another trip to South Africa I browsed one of my Food Magazin subscriptions and

we started to envision how it might be to have a small, a very small restaurant. Somewhere in Australia or

South Africa.
Maybe 4 or 5 tables.
To be in the kitchen wearing t-shirt, shorts and flip-flops cooking for fun and nice people....

Doesn't that sound great ?!
We even came up with a name: Katy's Barking Gecko

Well there is no restaurant (so far....), but heaps of favourite recipes.

Egg, Ham and Bell Pepper Spread

Egg-Ham and Bell Pepper Spread

We have got wonderful bread here in Germany.
But always only enjoying it with jam, cheese or cold cuts makes it a bit boring......
So I thought, well why not make your own spread?!
Definitely healthier and tastier than the stuff you can buy.
And it's really easy to make.


4 hard boiled Eggs
130g Ham
1 yellow Bell Pepper
Salt, Pepper
150g Crème Fraiche


Chop the eggs, ham and bell pepper really fine. Place in a bowl and add chopped parsley and chives. Now mix everything well and add the crème fraiche and some salt and pepper.

Egg-Ham and Bell Pepper Spread

That's it !!

It's delicious on fresh bread, but I also like it just like that as a kind of salad....
