Chocolatey Bliss Balls

Chocolatey Bliss Balls

A healthy, vegan treat even your kids will love I loooove bliss balls – or energy balls – aka the healthy, sugar free, nutty snack! But truth time: bliss balls are basically bastards, because, duh! They are hard af to make, IMHO. How can anyone pretend they’re easy to make at home, from scratch? I...

Ombré Choc Chip Hearts

Ombré Choc Chip Hearts

Baking is love is baking. I remember the first cake I ever baked, with just a little help from my mama. It was a simple stir and ready cake, with lots of vanilla and dark chocolate chips inside. As a kid, that was my idea of a perfect cake. Growing up, not much has changed....

Spätzle In A Hurry

Spätzle In A Hurry

Spätzle, Spätzli, Chässpätzli, Chnöpfli, Knöpfle, Spatzen… or whatever you might call them. They’re basically a foodie’s dreams (plural) come true. For those who do not know what I’m talking about – “Spätzle who?” – here’s a funny description I found: “a specialty from Southern Germany, made by boiling small lumps of dough made from flour...

Kids’ Easter Basket

Kids’ Easter Basket

Planning, creating and curating gifts is basically my biggest hobbie. Building an Easter Basket for E is top priority on my agenda right once Christmas and NYE are around the bend… Surprising a toddler is so easy. It literally takes nothing but a bit of imagination, creativity, small toys and shiny things and the eyes...

Flower Pot Carrot Bread

Flower Pot Carrot Bread

I love bread. Yes, I could basically live off it seven days a week, 24 hours a day (no intermittent fasting happening). But so far, the only bread I’ve dared to bake at home, on the regular, is: pizza (which, are we honest, isn’t really bread, because, PIZZA), Banana Bread (dito, it’s cake, right?) and...

Tea Squad

Tea Squad

Remember when I introduced you to my new baby, aka my fab little tea machine, the MASTER.T by SPECIAL.T? Well, the machine has been used on the daily, ever since. And I wouldn’t trade it for gold! My new motto: the best tea – the best way. Okay, so I stole that one, technically. But...

Home of the Easter Bunny

Home of the Easter Bunny

When I was a child, my mom used to love creating magic for us. Not a single childhood myth she didn’t cover with a perfectly curated web of “lies” (technically, but I stick to the euphemism “stories). She’d pull all the stops for ocasions like a lost tooth (she was an excellent tooth fairy) and...

Roasted Veggie Salad

Roasted Veggie Salad

Unfortunately it’s still winter outside – but can we do spring inside? We can do it. I’m a big fan of “nose to tail eating”. And by that I don’t mean the pig’s tail (I leave these to my carnivore enthusiasts friends…), but instead imply that we should look at vegs that way, too! Because...

Essentials On The Go

Essentials On The Go

When you’re often on the go with a sweet cheeky little toddler, you learn your lessons, real fast. And definitely one of the first lessons I learned in this gig called mama life: always be prepared for everything. From blown up diapers to sickness in the car or bunny bites at the petting zoo –...

Managing Memories

Managing Memories

As a mama, you are suddenly thrown into the beauty of mundane, everyday moments – that mean the world to you. Every single thing you experience together with your baby – and later toddler and kid – is turning into this memorable incident that you never want to forget. You’re making mental notes, hourly, about...
