Told you I would do a posting about some new drinks! We found them at a SKY market near Kiel, a new one with zero CO2 emission. Would like to buy there more often but it's to far away. But here are the drinks. First one, a can of organic sparkling elderflower. Tasted really good, not too sweet and not too much of elderflower flavor (don't like that). Marcel wanted to taste it, so I just had a few sips.

 And I bought my second bottle of vitamizzer. It was time for energy! Was a good drink, but I didn't had the feeling the caffeine or taurine worked :/ I would still recommend the brazilian softdrink from the asian market, if you need something to wake you up :P

And then I tried Gerolsteiner Linée lime and raspberry. Not that good a little bit sparkling, but a wee bit too sour for me. For people who like flavored water it might be a good change.

So, some interesting tastes, hope to find some more next year ;) If you know where to find some new/funny drinks let me know, I will try it!

See you!

I didn't have any time to bake while christmas was going on, but we made some a week before! Some short pastry with marmalade!!!! Rolling out short pastry isn't my favorite thing to do, but this time I had a good idea. I wraped a cutting board with clingfilm! I never was so relaxed! But you want to see them.

Last presents...

Hey there,
I'm feeling much better now, but still can't find the time to write a bit more. So, it will be a short up-date: Got all presents only have to do the selfmade ones, bought the last items today. I got up early and made a little shopping-tour with Marcel.
I am so glad, I don't have to work tomorrow!!! Will have to make some cookies, too. 
I promise to take some pics and upload them before we head to my parents!!!
*finger crossed*

Have a nice and cozy evening!!!

St. Nicolas Day

My parents and brother came over for some coffee and cake. We set together and ate the cake I made earlier that day. I made a rooibos tea cake. It's made of yoghurt, cream and gelatine. The first two pics are from my atempt to make macarones, didn't turn out so well. The dough was too thin, threw it all away :(

3., 4., 5. & 6.

Marcel got this:

He got the socks for St. Nicolas Day. My parents came to our place yesterday, but that will be my next posting.
What did you get?

Have some wonderful days.

Smells like Christmas!

yesterday was my free saturday and I made the best of it and started with BAKING!!! First I made some yummy and moist cinnamon stars. I love that cookies! They are so good and that easy to make. Just beat egg whites and add cinnamon, icing sugar and ground hazelnuts. On top it's just the beaten egg whites with icing sugar, so good.

Have a snug weekend!

Today I started to make christmas gifts. I always try to make something myself for everybody, sometimes it's just the card but sometimes it's something big. And there will be some cookies of course!
I can't post any pics here, somebody may be reading this, who will notice his/her present. But I will show you some after christmas. 
Do you make presents yourself?

Be creative and make a present!

Pop-up Books

Marcel and I just had a look in 2 of the pop-up books from my nana. The first one I used to 'read' very often after school and my grandparents: Pension zum ewigen Frieden

Presies for Marcel...

Bought the last few presents for Marcel's Advent calendar. Can't tell you where I bought them, Marcel is reading along.

Hab grad mal festgestellt, dass mir echt die englischen Vokabeln für dieses Posting fehlen....ToT
Naja, dieses Mal schreib ich denn in Deutsch:
Ich habe schon letzte Woche angefangen Weihnachtsdeko zu kaufen, nachdem wir nach langer Zeit mal wieder bei Ikea waren. Dort hab ich aber gar nicht soo viel gekauft, nur 2 Packungen Fliegenpilz-Anhänger und rot-weiß gestreiftes Geschenkpapier!!! Also stand fest wie das diesjährige Weihnachtsthema bei uns aussehen wird: Fliegenpilze!!!
Und dann sind wir ein paar Tage später in den besten Dekoladen gefahren...Depot in Raisdorf, 'tschuldigung Schwentinental. Dort haben sie auch ganz viele Fliegenpilze!!! *YAY* Dort habe ich dann auch ein bissl mehr Geld gelassen und habe mir einen Kranz und ein paar Fliegenpilze mit Klammer gekauft.
Hab mir dann zuhause überlegt wie der Kranz aussehen soll und habe gemerkt, dass ich noch nicht alles dafür hatte...also sind wir letzte Woche wieder zu  Depot! Ich liebe diesen Laden, der hat super schöne Sachen, die nicht so billig aussehen und ist dabei gar nicht so teuer und Marcel finde die Sachen auch gut. Leider habe ich im Moment nicht so viel Geld zur Verfügung und mußte mich ganz schön zurückhalten.
So, wollt ihr den Fast fertigen Kranz sehen??? Es fehlen nur noch die Kerzen, gar nicht so leicht die passenden und dabei nicht so teuren zu finden...

Om Nom Noms...

Marcel had made some yummy was delicious. Took it with us to my parents.

Ate it with curcuma-rice, a bit spice but not too hot. Marcel has a little problem making meals NOT hot, he just starts to think it's getting hot when I allready can't eat it because it would burn my mouth!!!


PS: There is no recipe and even if I would ask Marcel, he can't tell me...he just throws things in a pot ;)

I was looking through my magazines and books to find out what I will bake for christmas and St. Nicholas day. Found a cake Marcel really likes and he couldn't wait....Aloe-Slices! So, we went to the supermarket to buy all the ingredients, but we couldn't find any aloeyoghurt :/ Had to look for an alternative and foumd yoghurt with kiwi and gooseberry!!!

Yoga and Health!!!

just practised some Yoga. I always wanted to do Yoga, but didn't find the time for that. But since I often wake up in the morning with backache, I had a look in my Yoga-Box (got it as a present some time ago) and realized that pretty much of the exercises are the same I made at the physiotherapy. 


Hey everyone, how was your weekend????
Sorry, that I didn't write my second posting yesterday but we went to a concert/festival at the Pumpe, called "War over Kiel". Was quite good, had a lot of fun.
But that's not what I wanted to tell you about yesterday. I tried a new drink again. Found it at SKY our local supermarket. It's called vitamizzer and I think they want to show up just like vitaminwater in America. There are four different types and I tried absolut. Tastes pretty good but I think it's a bit too expensive (1,29€ for 500ml). Perhaps I will try the other 3 types to see which one's the best, I'll let you know.

Dinner from Marcel!

Sometimes it happens that dinner is ready when I come home from work...o.O
Last wednesday was such a day, Marcel has finished cooking when I entered the kitchen!!! Some yummy noodles with vegetables and bologna.

We didn't cook a lot this week, hadn't had the time. But I baked a bread......

Perhaps will write another post later this day.

Cake Pops 2

Yes, the second go on cake pops....I made them smaller and used a ready to use cake frosting, but I think I need better sticks than toothpicks....they sometimes just fall of them...not good!!!
But here are the pics I made of them......

Dinner is ready!

Hey, I'm very happy...I have the time to write as often as I want...YAY!!!
This time it's all about dinner....Marcel made some roulades allthough I don't eat the meat it was delicious.

First time.....

I told you that I bought a book about cake pops and now was the time to try a recipe...I was very excited because the pops always look so cute and cool. I first wanted to try some cool ones who look like skuls but then I thought that might be a bit too difficult for my first try and sarted with some easy ones, plain just with some sprinkles....thought it would be much easier but without candy melts and just normal chocolate coating it was a bit tricky to cover them. They were too heavy and would hold on the stick, had to try some technics until it was okay. But lets have a look...

destroy the cake........

Last summer days....

I had a wonderful weekend...went to a party on friday, had a bbq with some friends in the park on saturday and spent some time in our garden, too. The weather was gorgeous, 20°C and more!!! I think it was about 27°C on saturday :P
And I didn't have to go to work for 4 days!!! *YAY*
I got a few mosquito bites from saturday, they are still itching....
Our garden is now ready for winter....and I have 2 blisters in my right palm :( Not good! But I'm glad I don't have sore muscles again...Marcel and I started to go jogging! And we both couldn't walk right for a few days. But we want to do it regular, so we don't get all stif and so on. Need to buy some new sports-clothes!

So, have a sporty week ;)

PS: I started the last book of the Fablehaven-Series. Really good!!!

Hey there,
it was my free saturday and that's why we had a few guests here on friday. Later on we went to the Traum GmbH for the Altern Styles-Party. There were many people and we had a lot of fun.
And I told you I would make a cake with the plums from our neighbours garden and on saturday I had time for that!!!
