Mamahood. I always dreamed about it, but I never really knew what it meant. Let alone how much I would love it. It’s the most important challenge and adventure in my life. One thing is for sure: there is no going back to my old life, pre-mom. All my dreams came true, and now all my thinking and being is dedicated to being a mom. Well, maybe not alllll of the thinking (because, cake) – but a pretty big part anyway (in my spare-time, ha). I’m a full time lioness mom now, i guess. Ha!

If you’ve been a long time reader, you probably know I’m all about the cheesy things (both, literally and non-literally) and definitely all about the cute foods. Anything cute, dressed up, dolled up, decorated, whimsy, pink, unicorn-y… yeah, I’m sold. Point in case: this easter pavlova in disguise, pretending to be a simple fried egg. Does it get any cuter?

One of the foods I love the most is Wähe – a Swiss version of the tart, that’s made with either fruit or vegs and some sort of a curd to hold it all together. My favorite version is sweet, of course (incorrigible sweet tooth, me). I like to make them with seasonal produce – apples in the fall and winter, raspberries in the summer, plums in late summer. Wähe is a super versatile dish. And it’s either a meal in its own right or a dessert. Ah, fun fact: Fridays used to be “Wähe” days in some homes and in some bakeries when I was a kid. Fun times, haha.

I know I shouldn’t start every other post with a swear word… but GOSH! Time is flying! Little is already 12 weeks (three bloody months!) old and it’s a thought that drives me insane. Still enjoying every precious second that we have together while I’m still at home, full time, and can dedicate all my energy and love to her. There will be a time when this won’t be possible to the same extent, because, duh, work…? Earning money and adulting in general, shm. But…

To live in Switzerland and so close to the mountains feels like such a blessing. I’ve always liked to venture out into the snow and go skiing and snowboarding. And since I’m not under my parents’ roof anymore I love to go hiking (side note: used to throw a tantrum when I was little whenever “walking” was even mentioned… Sorry, mom & dad). Switzerland is the much referenced “winter wonderland” and a tourist’s dream destination. And since it’s my home I don’t brag about it every day, but I really feel so blessed to live in such a beautiful country.

Time is running so fast… I can’t believe my little munchkin is almost 2 months old. And that this means that I’ve been at home for almost two months. The two best months of my life so far. As a mom (and a housewife, admittedly) – the  best job in the world. Even if it means you only ever get to do and cook things one-handedly… lol.

Hey friends! I’m back with a bang and some chocolate, ha! I’ve been busy working – also creating recipes, styling, taking pictures… But just not on this space. At least not as often as i would have loved to. If you’ve read my latest post, you know that there are a few things happening in my life. We got married in November in a beautiful, intimate, family-only civil wedding celebration. I’m officially a misses now *swoon*. Over the moon with joy!

Hey Lovers of all things pretty! I’m back to this (strangely strange) space. Hello, blogosphere, it’s me, the foreigner, just checking in. And I brought chocolate…! To compensate and win you over, you know? Kind of. Lol, no, honestly. I hardly remember how to do this thing called “blogging” anymore. It’s been wayyyy too long since I last posted something, anything, properly, other than on good ol’ Insta, anyway. Although there has been so much goodness in my life – both the edible and the non-edible but rather emotional and experiences kind, laugh. But listen up, first things first…  Because: ICE CREAM! And then, well, I’ve got some real-life, full-on news to share…

Whenever I see a good DIY project – which happens a lot when you’re a Pinterest addict, like me – I think to myself: “oh, I want to try this!”. I will bookmark it lovingly and archive it under my crafts boards. But then, the likelyhood and truth is I’ll probably never start anything, really. The reason is. well, I’m not as good with my hands as I would like to.

Yes, I’ve made my fair share of flower bouquets (almost a Pro in that field) and greenery wreaths (for the Holidays and other). I’m obsessing over handwriting and lettering, and am an avid learner in the caligraphy field. But I’m not really getting over the “larning stage” there…
