SODASTREAM INFUSED WATER RECIPES

What do you think about infused water? I find it very refreshing and it’s a great way to drink more water. I mean water is quite boring but if you pimp it with fruit and vegetables you can make healthy cocktails in just a few minutes. SodaStream sent me recently their Sodastream Spirit machine to test it and I have to say that it’s a real plus in my kitchen. Continue reading “SODASTREAM INFUSED WATER RECIPES”

TRIP TO LYON – MY REWARD FROM CACTUS FOR WINNING THE KACHEN BLOG AWARD 2017

As you may have noticed, I didn’t  hide it at all and I was pretty proud of it, back in Oktober I won the Kachen Blog Award for best food blog, main sponsor.  Of course when you are nominated for an award, you hope to win it, but I never thought that I would actually win that thing. I remember talking to my friend during the ceremony, when they introduced the award for best food blog, main sponsor which was Cactus, all my hopes to win where already dead. I was more concearned of my pregnant friend with her high heels how she even managed to stand with those shoes, when I heard my name. I looked on the screen and saw a picture of myself. I won that thing! I remember walking on stage with the biggest smile. I will never forget that moment!

17 THINGS THAT STUCK WITH ME IN 2017

Let me check my planner to see what happened this year. Lots of traveling and exciting changes on the blog. But also grief and the feeling of insecurity. 2017 got to an end so quickly, the older I get, the faster time passes and by saying this I really sound super old. Actually when are you considered old? I am 33 now and I really, really don’t consider myself as old. And I’m not! I can prove it, my skin can prove it! I haven’t one single wrinkle yet. Okay, yes, I am not skinny and skinny people get wrinkles sooner, but who cares! I have to admit that the capacity of my liver to break down the alcohol is more limited than it was some years ago as student but if I only drink champagne it works. Good enough for me!

DAY 16 – WIN LADUREE MACARON BOX OF 8

Today my advent calendar partner is Ladurée Luxembourg. Let me tell you a little bit of their business journey. The history of the Paris Tea Rooms is closely linked to the history of the Ladurée family. It all began in 1862 when Louis Ernest Ladurée created a bakery in Paris at 16 rue Royale. In 1871, while Baron Haussmann gives a new face to Paris, a fire allows the transformation of the bakery into pastry. The decoration of the pastry is entrusted to Jules Cheret painter of the end of the century.
