Tea’s the Season… & Apfelküchlein

Tea’s the Season… & Apfelküchlein

There are a million reasons why I love this season… Candles and twinkling lights everywhere, delicious scents filling the air, the head brimming with gift ideas to spoil the loved ones, goodies and treats as far as the eye can reach and an overall festive mode. Since being a mama the fun only got bigger....

Festive Lava Cakes

Festive Lava Cakes

Mit Lava Cakes – den herrlichen, noch warm zu geniessenden Küchlein mit flüssigem Kern – verbinde ich ausschliesslich die schönsten Erinnerungen… Einerseits haben wir während der Unizeit mit unserer Dienstagabend-Mädelsrunde zum “Sex and the City” Schauen (auf Französisch, denn der Sender strahlte damals am TV – crazy, damals noch nix von on-demand – die neusten...

Scones & Tea (for me)

Scones & Tea (for me)

39 weeks. It can’t be negated, I’m now really in the final spurt of this pregnancy. Due date: any minute. Apart from a brief stint to the hospital this week – false alarm (I was experiencing contractions – and the pain didn’t leave for a couple of hours until it completely vanished again) – I...

Hausgemachte Gemüsebouillon

Hausgemachte Gemüsebouillon

Auf Englisch fällt mir das Schreiben fast leichter… Dennoch dachte ich heute spontan, hach, ein Wechsel auf (meine Muttersprache) Deutsch macht doch eigentlich viel mehr Sinn? Ich hoffe, dir machen meine Inhalte nach wie vor Spass. Danke, dass du hier bist! Schon als Kind war ich kein so grosser Suppentiger (wie ich es eigentlich gerne...

“Witches” Iced Tea

“Witches” Iced Tea

Summer. A simple word, filled with so much meaning. And now that we’ve had a taste of it, we want more! We’re waiting in the wings to tick things off our summer bucket list. On the very top: picnics for every meal! Of course, a nice home-made iced tea is the star of every al...

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...

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...
