strawberry bundt & mom’s home

By | Flowers, From my kitchen | 7 Comments

happy morther’s day to all moms out there! i don’t know a lot about motherhood (none to nothing, really). because, unlike many of my friends, i haven’t had this urge to have a baby of my own. but i’m starting to think that it would definitely be wonderful to have a daughter, one day, to teach her things, care for…

wild herb gathering

remember the crazy chai pear and chocolate pudding tart…? that’s when the collaboration (though, in all honesty, we stick to calling it ‘playing around’, actually) between photographer extraordinaire christine benz and my humble (aspiring food stylist, ahem) self started. by now, we’re already two days, several hours of hard, sweaty work and a couple more insights on working together on…

blooms & bubbly cocktail

By | Flowers, From my kitchen | No Comments

sometimes, a tiny thing like a weekend spent away with friends, celebrating the marriage of a beautiful couple, is all it takes to change perspectives. i was rather exhausted and a bit burnt out last week before the blissful weekend in the mountains. but it was so filled with love that i can’t help but feel ecstatic. about almost everything. …

ranging the woods

By | Flowers, From my kitchen | No Comments

pictures say more than words. so i leave you to enjoy the wild, young greens and the soft forest light! i spent a couple of days in the woods those past weeks, to see what wild garlic (bärlauch), beech tree leaves, dandelion, sorrel and other wild things do. well, they’re all ready to kick winter’s butt. sundays spent inventing meals…

spring skin routine

By | Flowers | No Comments

when spring is near and nature is ready to wake up, i seek ways to get rid of the old and start anew. i want to declutter my whole house, go running as often as possible (once a week should do, surely?) and basically try new things. along with the more obvious changes, my skin also longs for a change…

chestnut layer cake

By | Flowers, From my kitchen | 7 Comments

a friend’s birthday a while back resulted in frenzied, last minute baking. i assured her i would bring a couple of things from my kitchen – including a tart tatin with beetroots. well, i made said tart. but let’s just leave it at that: it wasn’t very good. more like, maybe, a sandstorm. when i realised okay this tart is…

everyday, i marvel at life. how i’m living my small life here, in this country, in my home, everything i love around me is so well known. sometimes, i wonder what it’s like to be someone else. to slip into other minds and lives. it’s so inspiring to see the beauty in other people’s lives… luckily, the internet provides a…

i spent all of saturday cooking, baking, styling, dreaming up and taking pictures of baked goods. actually, nothing new, right? technically yes. but it’s a new project i would like to announce. a cooperation, of sorts, between a very talented photographer friend (more about her soon) of mine and me. meaning: while i was baking up a storm in my…

2013 in review

By | Flowers, From my kitchen | No Comments

this is 2013, the year it was. a good one, overall. beautiful moments, meaningful events, long hugs, fresh air, unknown places (like amsterdam) and new learnings. if 2014 is half as blessed, i’m thankful. let the fun begin, or, to take one step after another, get started with a shower, maybe? yeah, gross. cheers, loves!

peanut butter s’mores chunks

By | Flowers, From my kitchen | No Comments

the holidays were nice, but also, a bit testing… for my ability to be alone and bored, mainly. but a clever person once told me that boredom is the root to new creativity, and so it feels. and, well, now that the life is back to the city, people are out again, my lust for life is finally back.  yesterday,…
