Family Meals – Fall/Winter 2015/2016

Family Meals - Fall/Winter 2015/2016

If you’re following my blog for some time now or if you know me personally, you might have already realized my love for food. I really enjoy eating good food, but I also love cooking, especially if I can cook or bake for my family. I cook almost everything freestyle without any recipe. I have some standard meals that we eat a lot, but I also like to try out new things every now and then. I also attempt to make every meal even better and better with each time, like trying out new herbs and spices or using different…

My 33rd Birthday

My 33rd Birthday

How can I be 33 years old already? Okay, my birthday was actually already a little over 2 months ago, but I still can’t really understand how that could happen. If I see other people my age (in reality, tv or blogs) I always feel a little strange. They are all so much more grown-up than me, they have their own houses, maybe one or two cars, a whole bunch of kids, a great career in fancy jobs I never heard of with loads of money (or just having money without having to work o_O) and are able to go…

Family Meals – 365 Days Edition

Cooking with a small baby at home is near impossible. Especially the first months were really hard for me, but even now with a 13 month old toddler, it’s still a challenge to find the time to cook and bake when I’m alone with Flynn. However sometimes I actually am able to make some great meals or cakes. And of course it’s getting better the older Flynn grows. So today I want to continue showing you some of our family meals from the last 12 months. At least the ones that I took photos of and that are acceptable to show…

Recently in my Kitchen

Today I want to show you some of the delicious things I made in the past few months. Since I have so much more free time at the moment, you can see me cooking and baking more often than before. But I won’t complain. I just love cooking, baking and especially eating ^.^°. I might not be perfect (yet), but I really like to try new things and I’m hoping to get better and better with each time. I think I have to, now that I’m going to be a mom real soon XD. If you’re interested in a recipe…

Garlic & Herb Baguette

Last weekend we had some delicious barbecue pork belly and wanted to have garlic bread with it. But why buying some mediocre ready-made garlic or herb baguettes, when you have so many fresh herbs right outside at your disposal? So we decided to make our own baguette this time. Since we still had some leftover “party baguette” from the day before, which are a little bit wider and bigger than normal baguettes you can get here, we just used these as a base. They were still edible on the second day, but way to soft to really enjoy them like they…

Family Days

So in mid-May I finally visited my family in Hannover/Germany again for one and a half week. The weather was pretty nice. Not as hot as in Vienna at that time, it really felt like spring with occasional rain, that always stopped pretty fast again. We used a lot of time for gaming. We bought Persona 4 Arena and the new Naruto Shippuuden PS3 game, we played some Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed and a PSN Bomberman (Bomberman never gets old!). We also puzzled all characters through “The Cave“, a PSN download game by the Monkey Island creator. It was…

Crazy Food

You don’t know how I feel every time I am back in Germany and go shopping in a normal supermarket. There is a so much bigger selection of different food, drinks and snacks in comparison to what you can get in Austria in even the biggest supermarkets here in Vienna. There are so many funny, delicious, unordinary and crazy things. If you live there, it feels completely normal, but for me, living in Austria for over 9 now, it’s like paradise. Funny things is that you can get almost all the Austrian, a lot of Swiss (except for Risoletto of…

Tenmaya – the japanese food heaven

So last week I had my 30th birthday. To celebrate this we wanted to go out for dinner in the evening, and what better place could you celebrate your birthday at than at a japanese restaurant. We decided to visit Tenmaya again, a very good, if not the best japanese restaurant in Vienna, no 5 minutes away from my workplace in the inner city. We made an reservation one day before through the online reservation form, because more than often you can’t get a seat if you hadn’t reserved. They offer a lot of differnt things like teppanyaki, soba and…
