Resolutions

This year, I learned how different things can play out from what you expect. My heartfelt New Year’s resolution 2019 was to truly get back in shape and especially heal. This, I swore myself on Christmas 2018, while I had searing neuralgic pain in my leg while visiting my family. Little did I know that…

Hello again

My dears,long time no see.206 days, 5 drafts and 7 deleted posts have passed. Right now I am sitting in my favourite café, pondering how to begin this blog anew. Every beginning is difficult, it is said in the vernacular. Just do it claims Nike. Nike, greek goddess of victory, Victoria in Latin. I digress.I…

Many a mickle makes a muckle

My dears, I’ve been working on this post for quite some time and I had to re-write it time and again. That is not uncommon concerning topics that are either destined to rise headwind or that I care about much. This time I’ll talk – again – about sustainability. Bear with my inner tree hugger….

Mini Chocolate Pizza

My dears, each year we’re having a Secret Santa and this year I was gifted with a tiny 6-inch pan made from cast iron and a fitted kit for chocolate pizza. Choco-whaaaat? 😨 Usually, I don’t have much of a sweet tooth – I prefer hearty or salty snacks – but this was amazing. You…

flour-free Cheesecake

Well, it was about time for another baking session! I had to give it three attempts until I got the knack of flour-free Cheesecake. I think the result is more than presentable. It is ridiculously easy, prepared in no time and you don’t need to feel that guilty ;) Ingredients: 17.5 oz / 2 cups…

Low Carb Tarte Flambée

Recently, I spent a weekend in Koblenz; a beautiful town in Germany’s rich wine region on the river Moselle. And wherever there is a wine region there must be good food, too. One of my favourites is Flammkuchen (or tarte flambée), a crispy flat base traditionally topped with sour cream, onions and diced bacon. I…

Behind the curtain

Originally, I intended to keep this blog anonymous. But I have a story to tell, a personal one. What is better designed to accompany my story than a picture of myself? Thing is, I have had a tough time these last months and I am still not done. I keep smiling and I keep having…

Chicken Gyro Salad

When it gets really hot in summer, I am not too fond of a warm meal. Therefore, I nibble away on a salad on a daily basis. To be honest, there are great salads, but when I’m in my daily routine I catch myself eating the same stuff time and again. Booooriiing. So I tried…

Too good to go

As a student I am conflicted about food every day: shoestring budget but a lot of love for vegetables and fruits, preferably from local and organic sources. This only works out well occassionally and I have to compromise either in quality, quantity or reduce other spendings. I found a good golden mean by accident. The…

Port de Pollenca

A few weeks ago, I fled from the freezing temperatures in Germany and escaped to Mallorca for a short trip. I booked a simple but wonderful Hostal close to the port of Palma de Mallorca and seized the days to explore the region. I took the bus to Port de Pollenca on my first day,…
