It’s Easter in less than a month. Crazy. We have just celebrated Christmas. But well, sometimes you have to take it as it is and play the game. I’ld like to present a recipe for an alternative to sticky easter-treats: honey and almond biscuits. They take no time to make, are sugar-free, palmoil-free and really delicious! You don’t always need to buy your loved ones sweets that are wrapped in plastic and so on, but can also make them yourself!

My Word for 2017 & NYE Menue

A few days ago I came across a wonderful blog post The Yoga Affair , where blogger Elvira introduced a wonderful alternative to new year’s resolutions vorstellt: a word, that will be your guide through your year. It works like a mantra which you should keep in mind, in various situations.
For me it took almost a day and a full blog entry until I had some ideas for “my word” in mind. My thoughts and an overview over what will be on my New Year’s Eve table you can find in this blog post. (hint: slow Food!)

Pumpkin Pie: New and Improved!

Last year I posted a recipe for american pumpkin pie. I made it again this year, but differently. The new crust ist much sweeter and softer, which I find really good. I hope, you’ll think of it the same way when you try it – it’s the perfect desert at the moment, as it’s autumn and nearly winter!

Are you ready for the fudgiest and most delicious beetroot cake ever? Perfect, because I’ve got news for you: When I was in England last year, I went to Brighton with two lovely friends from Germany.

As you might have already counted, more than a year has gone by since then. But finally I found time and an occasion – yes, Valentine’s Day is coming – to finally try a cake like this. And guess what? It turned out amazing!
