    Baking “Springerle”

    Springerle means “little jumper” in German. They’re a traditional Southern German cookie and are usually made around Christmas. To be honest, I used to dislike them as a child, but I learnt to love them as I got older. Sadly, my parents haven’t made them in recent years in an effort to tone down Christmas. […]

    In which I make the easiest cake in the world

    Recipe from: slowly veggie! Vegetarisch & vegan genießen 02/2019, p. 111. Christmas time is coming closer, it’s getting colder outside, and I feel very much like baking.

  • Making Vegetable Stock Yourself

    Making Vegetable Stock Yourself

    I’ve started making vegetable stock myself. Well, it’s more of a vegetable paste that you can use as stock! I got the recipe from Utopia, but since it’s in German I thought I’d show you how to do it. I slightly adapted the recipe by using lovage instead of garden cress and shallots instead of […]

    Did I mention I’m still excited over our kitchen?

    It’s probably silly how excited I am over our little kitchen, but this is the first time I’ve actually owned a kitchen! And could (co-)decide how it was going to look and which appliance is going to be put in where and all that grown-up stuff! After we moved into our apartment last year, we […]

  • Banana Milkshake

    Banana Milkshake

    I wanted to treat myself to a cafè latte at my favourite coffeeplace here, but the weather was so bad I didn’t want to leave the house, so I made a banana milkshake instead! It’s really simple: for three portions, you need three bananas sliced into little pieces, 450ml milk and a bit of lemon […]
