This raspberry-marzipan coffee cake is long gone, its life span had been cut short – literally cut in pieces – and is countable in hours, certainly not days. The minute I moved it from the oven to a rack to cool, I almost attacked it with a knife. I could hardly pull myself together to Weiterlesen

I don’t know about you, but beside April being the month for the first sunburn on my nose and getting soaked to the skin during one of those rain showers, it’s also the time I start making ice cream, like it’s out of style next month. Egg whites are usually a by-product, which I don’t Weiterlesen

I am a late summer birthday girl and can’t actually imagine, how unfair or complicated it is to have a birthday just around Christmas. I heard complains like: it’s hard to celebrate because friends and family are already busy with all this holiday stuff and a party is not as appreciated as in any other Weiterlesen

I am about to leave town and country, my bags are packed and it’s about time. I waited many weeks and even months went by since I booked my flight. Soon I’ll be home at my parent’s house, my other home.

Did you miss me last week? I took a week off, actually two weeks because the last post had been a guest post from the lovely Sandy from confiture de vivre.
The truth is and I am just saying it: I was busy but in a positive way. My family had been visiting me, I had Weiterlesen

There are things that would force me to get up early on a weekend day like tornado siren, earthquake or fire alarm. But there are also some enjoyable circumstances like the scent of freshly brewed coffee waving into my bedroom and tinkling my nose (hint!) or the anticipated trip to a peach orchard.
Since our visit Weiterlesen

Do you believe in destiny? Actually I am not the one thinking someone else is in the driving seat of my life’s car (this is so ‘The Game of Life :)) On the other hand if this cake is not controlled by kismet or karma or what ever, I don’t know…
I have to admit this Weiterlesen

So many things are happening in and about my small world. If you look up and left and right you might discover the new look of this side. It’s not just a new design, I moved the whole thing from iweb to wordpress. I haven’t finished yet, many things still need to be updated. But Weiterlesen
