Happy Halloween!!!
I know it's a bit late but I had much to do. But lets not talk about that.
We had a great time preparing for Halloween. I think Schatzi allready started about 2 months ahead with his costume. There was a hell of a mess in his room. :) 
We came up with the idea of a Star Wars group and it was great!!!
Here are some pics of our costumes. Can you think of  "what" we were?

We had so much fun at the party. And we are allready planning next years Halloween-Theme for our group!

Smells like...Scones!

Hey there!
Sorry for not writing in a while. But now I found new inspiration and got a plan for this blog. Yep!

In this post, I will show you how I make scones. I made them for my birthday dinner at my parents. For toping I made some strawberry-butter.
All you need is:
+ 280g flour
+ 60g cold butter
+ 40g sugar
+ 50g raisins choped
+ 1 egg
+ 160g cream
+ 12g bakingpowder
+ salt

For the butter you just cream together some butter at roomtemperature and some of your favorite marmelade.

1. Combine the flour, bakingpowder and salt ( just a pinch).
2. Put the butter in small pieces on top and cream together by hand, then add the raisins. Make a mould in the middle.
3. Add the sugar to the egg and beat until fluffy. Pour in the cream and beat again for a short moment.
4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ( in the mould).
5. Stir together with a spatula or spoon until well combined.
6. Put some flour on your worktop and start rolling out the dough. Don't make it too thin, it should be about 4 cm thick.
7. I took a glass to get a good round shape, but you can use what you want. Cut out about 10 to 12 scones, place them on a baking-pan and glace with some extra cream.
8. Bake for 15-20min at 220° C.

You should now have some delicious scones!!!
Pics are following. ;)

I don't know what is going on. I can't think of something to write about. :/
I will make a posting about our visit to the zoo, but I don't know how to start. Just can't get any inspiration! Will have to sit down and have to read some other blog, perhaps that will help.
What are you doing to get some inspiration???

Enjoy your evening.

I have to do something with the design here on my blog. I'm not happy how it turned out. Will be spending some time on that this weekend.
And I am still doing great in my pilates workout. The last video Schatzi and I tried was....

It's not like we really could do it all like her, but we really tried.

Hey there!
I allready told you that I am running every second day now...more or less. ;) But I also want to do a bit more for my back and strength. Marcel and I found a cool site for pilates vids and so on, called Blogilates !!!
I want to start with the video for beginners soon. Will tell you then!
Take a look at Blogilates, perhaps you find it as inspiring as I do.

Stay sharp!!!

sorry for not writing a while. Didn't have the feeling that something worth writing about had happened.
But that changed! From sunday until tuesday Schatzi and I went to Berlin! 
We had a wonderful japanese dinner at a little restaurant called susuru.

We met friends who moved to Berlin 2 years ago. It was great to see them again!!!
On monday we went to the Pergamon museum. It was amazing, great museum. We spent nearly 4 hours there. Next up will be the Egyptian museum!
And here are some more pics I took in Berlin.

Neptun Brunnen

Will be coming back!

Here are a few impressions from denmark. Again taken with my mobile and vignette.

Have a nice weekend!


Carrot Cake

Hey, we are back from denmark!
I still have to tell you about my first go with a carrot cake. I tried it just before we left, so I hadn't have the time to post it. So, let's start.

You need:
# 5 eggs
# 250 g brown sugar
# cinnamon
# salt
# mark of a vanilla pod
# 250 g grated carrot
# 250 g grounded hazelnut
# 250 g flour
# 1 TS baking powder

1. Grease your springform pan and preheat the oven on 190°C.
2. Beat together eggs, sugar, salt and vanilla. Add the carrots and hazelnuts.

3. Mix in the flour and baking powder.

4. Put it in the oven for about 35 minutes. Afterwards let it cool.

The frosting:

Cream together 300 g sifted icing sugar, 250 g cream cheese and 100 g cold butter!!!
I didn't have any time to do the frosting but the cake was very delicious when warm. Of you wonder why there two cakes in the pic...I don't have a springform pan big enough! ;)


PS: I took the pics with my mobile and the app vignette. It was still the demo, but I now have the hole version and can change the quality.

So far the weather's been really nice, a lot of sunshine and if you find a good place without any wind, it's really warm allready. Marcel and I are often in our garden, he nearly got a sunburn after digging the hole for the pond! ;)

Have a sunny week!

some more smoothies

We had a healthy day again!!! Bought a lot of fruits and tried quite a few smoothies. Marcel made one with peppermint and strawberries, I'm not so fond of peppermint in a smoothie. I made a normal green smoothie and one with strawberries, banana, apple, pear and buttermilk. I had to add a bit of sugar, it was a bit sour. Here are a few impressions!

Monkey Bread

Hey there!!!
I had found a pin on pinterest showing some monkey bread. I had to try that myself.
I bought some ready to bake dough for buns, cut it into small pieces and rolled them in sugar and cinnamon. In a saucepan dissolved some butter and brown sugar. All you have to do now is put the dough in a muffin pan and add the butter/brown sugar. In the preheated oven for 20 minutes and you have a yummyly dessert.

Drinki drink...

Went to our asian market for some yummy food and drinks. Got a bottle called 'Aloe Vera King'. It's an aloe drink with mango flavor. The taste is good but the little aloe jelly bites plop around in my mouth. *yay*
