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...

Spring List

Spring List

Now that we finally have sunshine, it feels like spring is just around the corner. And while I haven’t missed anything during the colder season, the first warming rays of sunshine have been like a promise. And like every year, suddenly I’m in the mood for spring. It is so nice how a bit of...

Visiting our Furry Friends

Visiting our Furry Friends

With a toddler, you are always on the run, busy planning new activities, visiting the latest childfriendly sights and doing stuff you haven’t done yourself in decades. One of the biggest pleasures for us as a family is visiting animals. Be it the local petting zoo in our closeby community garden, GZ Bachwiesen, where we...

Woof! E’s Puppy Pawty & Tips

Woof! E’s Puppy Pawty & Tips

Throwing parties is one of my greatest pleasures in life. One of my only mottos I consistently stick to is: celebrate everything! Firm believer that every day should be a little party. As bigger bashes go, alas, I have to say that hubbie and I are not too fond of celebrating our own birthdays. I...

Winter Wonderland Arosa

Winter Wonderland Arosa

When you get the chance to visit one of the leading hotels in Switzerland, nestled in the most majestic of mountains surrounded by snowy peaks, with your toddler and mama in tow – you even postpone your Christmas preparations a bit to make it happen. I was a little sceptical at first if it was...
