There are only a few things that are as essential as a loaf of bread. For me the last home baked bread, made with my own sourdough, is already too long ago. Fate seemed to be against me, killing first not only my first rye sourdough, but also its successors, and soon after that the wheat starter followed as well. So yes. I needed fresh dough. Because self-made bread is […]

Heute ist Julia von Chestnut & Sage zu Gast, die einen wunderbar einfachen Snack mitgebracht hat, der auch bei absoluter Kopfleere schnell gemacht ist. Chestnut & Sage versprüht eine helle Leichtigkeit die ich total gerne mag. Julia kenne ich außerdem auch persönlich und es ist jedes Mal eine Freude sich mit ihr über Bloggerthemen, aber auch über ganz normale Sachen zu unterhalten. Nicht nur, dass wir auf einer Wellenlänge sind, […]

I’m burned out. I don’t want this, anymore. I dragged this blog along for the past few months. It didn’t make fan, anymore. Although I always thought that the pressure from outside, from other bloggers, wouldn’t impact me, it isn’t quite like that. I am a quite relaxed person, but I persuaded myself that I had to blog once a week! What a rubbish! I lost my inspiration. I lost […]

You might think that you have easier access to unprocessed groceries, than in the cities. But no. Just no. Because more citizens in a city appreciate regional food, possibly even organic much more. It just doesn’t matter to the people here. They just go to Kaufland and that’s it. The only thing, which is easy to come by is milk. Raw milk from an organic Bioland farm even. I hadn’t […]

Advent it is! Time to lighten the first candle and to bake the first Christmas cookies! Time is running especially fast this year, although I already have so many plans what cookies to bake ;). The first ones are these cashew balls. Wow, these are a bummer! The cashew shine so well in these, especially because I roasted them with the method of Heiko Antoniewicz, which I learned at the […]

[Advertisment] Cold november evenings are made for sitting on the couch watching series, reading a book or knitting along. Warm november afternoons are best spend on the balcony with the face in the sun. A warm drink is the best company for both. November with its last golden sun rays calls for the golden warm bourbon. I pack the bourbon in a warm hot toddy to prevent being cold. To […]

I am a little squirrel, I always have a huge collection of nuts at home. If I would have a garden I would plant a lot of nut trees! I store a lot of them in the freezer, which is not very convenient, if you only have 2,5 drawers. On the other hand they last longer, because they do not turn rancid. Especially more expensive nuts that contain more fat […]
