Over 100 Ball-istic Recipes!
We’re continuing with animal week at produzentin.com, here are Oliver’s most cherished creatures:
My favourite animals are cheddar bunnies. And my favourite bunny is Bernie, the Rabbit of Approval. Do I love cheddar bunnies because of Bernie, the Rabbit of Approval, or do I love Bernie because of the Cheddar Bunnies he approves? Yes and Yes! Plus I secretly identify with Bernie.
p.s.: My other favourite animal is the Giant Peccary, a new forest pig discovered in Brazil in 2004.
As you may have noticed, once in a while, I like to bring you news from the amazing world of fizzy drinks. So, one of the first things I discovered in London is Coca-Cola with Orange. The limited edition fizzy in the orange bottle just caught my attention. So yummy.
Now, I can’t wait for Fanta with caffeine in a brown bottle.
Somehow, I can’t stop thinking about Mezzo Mix. Anyhow, I’d rather have Coca Cola with Orange. It isn’t limited for no reason, right?
While I’m at it, I’m still wondering why Pepsi Cucumber was launched in Japan only. I think it would go perfectly with British Cucumber Sandwiches.
In anticipation of the upcoming Simpsons movie a couple of 7-Eleven stores in the US and one in Canada have been transformed into Kwik-E-Marts. The Canadian store is near Vancouver, in Coquitlam. Luckily, all the Simpsons products are available at most of the 7-11 stores.
So today, I went up the street and got myself a six-pack of Buzz Cola and the tasty Krusty O’s cereal. Now, all I have to do is create my own Simpsons character.

After a wonderful night out with the best friends one could possibly have, I woke up this morning and treated myself with very very delicious Sno Balls. It’s the perfect breakfast: The balls are pink and sweet from the outside but are dark and lovely from the inside. Layers and layers of fun. Amazing.
Nobody nose me

Yesterday I spent a wonderful afternoon with my dear friend Margot. She just came back to Toronto from visiting her family in Nova Scotia. Margot had lots of amazing stories to tell and a delicious recipe to share. She knows I love all things east coast.
This cookie recipe is apparently a tradition of her family. They are called Mucho Nuchos. They don’t require baking and are a tasty treat.
So, if you want to surprise your guests, here is the run down:
3 bags of peanut butter chips
3 bags of chocolate chips
3 cups of peanuts (give or take)
1 bag of salted potato chips (Ruffles are suggested)
Pictures by Oliver
This is all you need
Mix the chocolate and peanut butter chips in a big pot
Put them on medium heat
Especially in the beginning, you have to stir hard
We obviously couldn’t wait
Margot adds the peanuts
Potato chips, now!
More hard stirring required
Almost done: just put the cookies on a tray…
…and into the freezer for a couple of minutes.
Freezers are the new ovens.
Mucho Nuchos: A heavenly feast.
Just a little suggestion: wash them down with some Diet Coke plus
(that’s Diet Coke with added vitamins and minerals)
Margot and I love to have a balanced diet.
I went record shopping in Soho and bought yellow vinyl housed in a sealed sleeve with random die-cut lettering.
On my walk to the wreka stows I discovered my new favourite sweets: Cream Puffs by Beard Papa. I walked into the small shop on the corner of Oxford & Berwick St. and the two self printed sheets of paper above the counter did me in:
“Over 300 stores worldwide – First and only in Europe”
“World’s best cream puffs! – Choice of original vanilla OR flavour of the day”
So, I ordered a vanilla puff and it was pure heaven, the crispiness of the dough and the tasty cream filling, perfect. Mmmmh. Then, I thought, well, they only have one other flavour today, you should better try this one, too. “One green tea puff, please.” I guess I was drolling already. I took a bite, it was vanilla again. I adored the sales person: That nifty devil just wanted me at the counter one more time. And back I was for another puff.
Verdict: Beard Papa keeps me happy & obese.
I took the bendy bus to my apartment and went to the Beard Papa site right away. Make sure to watch the Beard Papa story, revealing everything about the owner, Beard Papa (you guessed it), hailing from Osaka.
Beard Papa, fill me up. Please.
Toffi came over last weekend and he prepared his infamous Cheeseburger Soup. I had been bugging him about the delicious soup for months.
1 Big Onion
500g Minced Meat
1 Liter Water
Asparagus Creme Soup
Salt and Pepper to taste
All good things
Simmer the onions and the bacon, put the leek in a bit later
Add the minced meat and brown it. Add salt and pepper.
Fill it up with the water.
Toffi pours in the asparagus creme soup.
Add the processed cheese (Scheibletten). It may help to tear them apart.
Squirt the soy sauce to the mix.
For extra tasty finesse, Toffi garnished the soup with garlic prawns. Mmmmmh.
We were having blueberry yogurt sparkling wine for dinner.
It was a total celebration for our taste buds.
By the time you read this you already know that produzentin loves all new soda pops. Actually, I’m only interested in the big names, Pepsi, Coca Cola and Dr. Pepper.
So, I think when Coca Cola heard of my fabulous Diet Pepsi Jazz campaign, they didn’t want to be second best. Coke wanted to have a produzentin jingle for their freshest creation, too.
And finally people can ask: How do you want your Coke? With milk or blÄk? Some sugar?
Just blak, please!
