Warm deliciousness for the last cold days

Heißes Apple Crumble mit Vanilleeis

Mit diesem Rezept bin ich praktisch groß geworden. Meine Mama hatte es immer für meine Schwester und mich gemacht, wenn wir Lust auf etwas Süßes hatten, und nun, da ich ausgezogen bin, ist es an mir, es selbst zu machen. Und da jeder Koch seine eigene Handschrift hat, habe auch ich dem Rezept meine eigene Note gegeben. So habe ich noch Rum-Rosinen und geröstete Nüsse hinzugefügt, was dem Ganzen einen ganz besonderen Touch verleiht.

Mein Tipp ist, probiert dieses Rezept aus, solange es draußen noch so herrlich winterlich kalt ist. Serviert das frisch gebackene Apple Crumble in einer kleinen Schale mit einer Kugel Vanilleeis (meiner Meinung nach, ist das Vanilleeis von Häagen Dazs das Beste, da es am authentischsten nach Vanille schmeckt) und setzt euch damit, in eine Decke eingekuschelt, auf das Sofa.

New Year’s Resolution – Just be yourself

Another year is coming to an end and a new one is waiting just around the corner, with all it’s surprises to sweep us off our feet.

Every time when a year is about to end, we review all our actions, thinking of all the things we wanted to do and of all those we didn’t. We are making new lists, with new goals, for the year to come including those we planned to do last year.

But do we always have to try to change ourselves into someone we aren’t? Can’t we just be pleased with who we are or what we achieve? Continue reading “New Year’s Resolution – Just be yourself”

A relaxing evening on the countryside – Paris

Of course we all love Paris and everything that the city brings with it. But isn’t an evening on the countryside nice as well?

Sometimes you just have to pack your belongings and escape the crazy Parisian traffic, noises and crowds. So why don’t call your friends and drive about 50 minutes by car to the country house “Le bar de la Plage”.

Nearly every Saturday night they host concerts, where one or more newcomers perform. The music changes between Indie, Pop, Jazz, Soul and many more genres. Continue reading “A relaxing evening on the countryside – Paris”

Le Marais… – Paris

… or also called the Jewish quarter of Paris is definitely my most favourite “Place to be” in Paris.

Needless to say that it has the same beautiful architecture as the rest of Paris, but it also has the coolest and trendiest shops, cafés and restaurants of the whole city.

I guess it is just the fact that every corner is so different and there are so many exciting things to discover that has always dragged me back to this quarter. You can spend many days there without ever getting bored. Continue reading “Le Marais… – Paris”

Montmartre and the Rue d’Abbesses – Paris

When the sun has just come out and you can still smell the morning dust in the air, you should make your way through the streets of Montmartre. Starting with a little hike up to the Sacre Coeur where you should take your time to soak in that incredible view over Paris. Through the leaves of some trees you can sometimes hush a look on the “Tour Eiffel”. Continue reading “Montmartre and the Rue d’Abbesses – Paris”
