I’m back from Flanders! Bruges is such a beautiful city. You can just stay there for a couple of days, because there is so much to see and the beauty of the town is just overwhelming. Another pleasure was a shop there, called Dille & Kamille, which was heaven for everything in the kitchen. And it was cheap! If you’re ever in Belgium or the Netherlands, go there!   […]

Today I’m finally fighting against my writer’s block. I didn’t stop to photograph, or beware! cooking and baking. But when it came to blogging my head was blank. On the other side I had so many things floating around my head, because just recently I began to work on my diploma thesis. Which is a totally new territory to me. I would say “so we see what happens next”, but […]

These beauties are my latest experiments.   This is the first time I’ve mixed them up. But I’m sure,  they will turn out great. Because how shouldn’t liquor, oil and vinegar with these ingredients turn out great?! I’ve made liquor before. With elderflower or peaches. I made the elderflower one this year again. It’s perfect. So if you can still lay you hands on elderflowers, pick them immediately and make […]

Today would be the perfect alibi for a big cake or even torte. But I’m not a fan of the big desserts, I’m more for smaller ones. But then a lot. Not to mention the high temperatures, that are dominating the country these days. So I’m presenting you with a refreshing delicate easy-to-make fruit soup. With this fruit soup, a mini barbecue tonight, some apricot tartelettes (which will be following […]

When I remember of red currants, I think of me as a child, standing in front of the red currant bushes in the garden of my relatives in Coburg. Just plucking and nibbling one after the other with pleasure. Really loved that time of year, since I’m still loving it today. And I’m still in love with red currants. Unfortunately we don’t have a garden, so no nibbling them straight […]

Finally we also have hot hot hot summer weather. To enjoy and celebrate this duly it’s time for some Gelato. Some weeks ago I bought David Lebovitz‘ book The Perfect Scoop, which was a perfect purchase. Even if you are not in making some ice cream it is just a pleasure to read it. But back to the ice cream. We decided to try the raspberry-chocolate one first, because I […]

Since on the 20. March was Macaron Day I decided to show you my latest accomplishment in macarons. Yes, there exists a special day for macarons! In Paris are special shops, that sell macarons all day long and on macarons day you can get some free! Unfortunately I never had the chance to be there (on macarons day or sometime else). As macarons are not very popular in Germany, ok […]

Being ill with a painful tonsilitis, which keeps me the week at home, I have a lot of time to spend with my blog. Lucky you! Last weekend I made those beauties: Buttermilk Panna Cotta layered on blueberry puree. Originally I wanted use up a mango fruit. I searched the internet and in the end I found a recipe at Tartelette’s. But as it came to peel the mango I […]
