P.S. I kept my word

P.P.S That’s true. I haven’t gave it 

Later edit: Nope, I still don't have more to say.

Re-reload!

OM*G, it's December!!!

One of my last year resolutions was to develop this blog but it seems I totally forgot. Doesn't matter let's look once more towards the future. Step by step! 

I take once more time the challenge to post every day till the end of the year. I don’t take this too serious, I just want to have fun and keep it going...

Lately

The secret of a bloger is to blog. I haven't been to good about that and as always I am trying to catch up. Better later then never, right?

Updates: we've
been on vacation
moved on the other side of the country
fighting with paper work for a happy event
looking for an apartment and furniture
exploring the new surroundings

oh may, oh may....and many other little things!

Magic Summer Potion

I love summer and I love the things I can make with my own hands. So, I love Socata. That is elder flowers drink.


This elder drink is one of the best things I ever tasted. Every early summer my mom made this drink us and it was my dads duty to collect the flowers. So it was a family thing :)

4 simple ingredients are needed:

10 elderflowers
2 organic lemons
5 tbs sugar
5 liter water



Mix everything in a big jar and let it in the sun ferment for one day. 

I promise, it is to die for!

Rhubarb Pie


Ooops I did it again. After my famous apple pie there's another simple, quick, seasonal fix for a spring rainy (again) Sunday.

This recipe is from my mom. The holly rule of 5:

5 eggs
5 tbs plain flour
5 tbs sugar
5 tbs oil
lemon zest
vanilla extract
pinch of salt
backing powder
+ rhubarb (can be replaced by any other juicy fruit: strawberries, peaches, plums...)

First you separate the eggs.
Mix the yolks, 3 tbs sugar, the lemon zest and the vanilla and stir until the sugar melts.
Separately beat the eggs whites with the remaining 2 tbs sugar and pinch of salt to a soft foam.
Gently add the foam to the yolks, add the oil and consecutively the flour. Each spoon at the time. It's really important that the dough stays fluffy. Last mix one tee spoon baking powder with lemon juice or vinegar and add it to the dough. Stir gently.

Pre-heat the oven.
Grease the backing form with butter or oil, tap with flour.
Pour the dough into the form and gently add the rhubarb.

Bake until it turns gold.

I can only say that I saved the half to photograph after a very very tight fight! Again it was suuuper lecker!

Berlin - My Love

Oooh my I love this city! I was lucky enough to go for a short trip to Berlin. Soooo inspiring, I could move there in a heart beat. Forever!!!

It always feels the right place to be :)

I love that's big, nosy, colorful, multi-culti, green, not always pretty (sight)

We rented a small apartment (actually it's bigger then ours) on airbnb. It was so cool, much different than what I would do in my own apartment but very inspiring through it's minimal, effortless style. The high light for me was definitely the bath tube! Luckily the weather was really good so we walked a lot, visited some museums and just chilled...

I can't wait to go back!
