vanilla kipferl

by Eva Felis on December 10, 2013

One of Germany’s favorite Christmas cookie is actually of Austrian origin, Vienna to be precise. I didn’t know that or I did and forgot about that and at the end, it doesn’t matter at all. What matters, and I might totally disagree at this point with most of Germany’s population, is that they are mainly Weiterlesen



christmas skillet cookie

by Eva Felis on December 2, 2013

I had been growing up in Germany and obviously Thanksgiving had never been much of a big deal. Why? Someone actually asked me that… Well no pilgrims, no Indians, no Thanksgiving Day, that’s basically the explanation for the lack of it in an otherwise very holiday friendly German calendar.

by Eva Felis on March 8, 2013

Home is where the heart is. We all heard this phrase before. But I never thought about it’s meaning or the truth behind this. Until I moved again and again and again and again. I am in my fifth home, fourth state in four years and start to wonder where is my home and where Weiterlesen

Every once in a while  it has to be bacon and eggs and the whole works for breakfast, I am talking about the full treatment. I am also able and love to start the day with yesterday’s cold pizza, some of you think it’s gross (but I know some will nod and agree, come on). Weiterlesen

Be aware what is coming up is a sad story… An hour ago I had a dentist appointment, actually I am spending a lot of time (and money) there. It is my fault (totally), I am brushing my tooth that is not the point, it is more all the sweet things I let them chew Weiterlesen



valentines cookies

We know the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach and I bet this little cuties are more than a point in the right direction. Valentines day is just around the corner and if you want to surprise your sweet heart there is nothing more personal than make your own gift instead of Weiterlesen
