Review: April

April has just flown by! It has been my last month of maternity leave and we had quite a lot of great exciting things going on – not only did we pay a visit to family and friends to Germany, we also celebrated our daughter’s first Birthday.

In April I wrote about a lovely day trip to Llandudno in Wales and for the sweet tooth there was a recipe for lovely little raspberry pastries :).

In May I would like to write about our little girl’s first Birthday – it was such a special day to us!

Review: March

Better late than never…here is my little review for March.

Finally a bit more time to spend in the kitchen…a bit more baking in March – which I loved very much!
Lucy and I did the Food Exchange and I made a Lemon Drizzle Cake and Fudge for Easter. It is so much fun, have a look here what it is all about if you’re interested!
I also showed some pictures of a trip to Blackpool with its blue skies, colourful funfair and fun seaside atmosphere.
Oh, and if you need a super quick recipe for a sweet treat, have a look here for my idea what you can do with puff pastry and cream.

April is going to be very busy so I don’t know yet how much I will actually be able to write here on the blog – but I will try my best. I am going to visit family in Germany and there is going to be our little girl’s first birthday…I am very excited!
Have a great April everyone!

Review: February

February seems to have been flying by – which also reflects in my blogposts, because there haven’t been too many…however, I still managed to share a recipe for my mini Battenberg cake with you guys and (after almost a year) I finally managed to take some pictures and write about our baby girls room :).

For March I am very excited already because Lucy from Lucya Bakes and I will revive our beloved Food Exchange. I cannot wait!
Apart from that I’m hoping that spring comes closer and closer…with more recipes, stories and DIY ideas :).

See you all very soon! 

Review: January

So this was it – January 2018, the first month of an exciting year that lies ahead.

Due to the Christmas holidays it was a little quiet on the blog but there was still a bit of baking, as well as travelling inspiration on the blog going on :).

January, the quiet month after Christmas…this year it seemed to be so quiet that it went by quicker than I anticipated!
But now, let’s leave January behind us and embrace the new month! Although I will be away to see family and friends in February there will still be new posts on the blog…it will involve baking and handmade things – and maybe I will finally manage to show you our little girl’s room. I’m excited!
For now though, have a great start to the new month!


Welcome 2018


Welcome 2018! This will be my fourth year writing this blog – and I still love it! (I just had to double check whether four years are correct because I couldn’t quite believe it :))

2017 was an exciting year for us as a family and after buying a house and welcoming our little daughter I took a few months off blogging. This time off was good, I enjoyed it – but I also was so excited to start blogging again.

2018 will be another exciting year for me and I can’t wait to share more pictures of handmade things, cakes, our travels…and much more. Also, I am looking forward to discovering more interesting and creative blogs, as well as I am excited to continue following the blogs I have discovered so far.

I hope you all had a nice time off during Christmas and New Years Eve – let’s start again now being creative and let’s discover new recipes, tutorials, places to go and so much more. 🙂

Review: November

As I will be in Germany for the next 10 days this is going to be a bit of an early review of November – somehow it is fitting though, as I am already in a christmassy mood and I can’t wait for December :).

In November I finally managed to write about the GRUB food fair in Manchester, I shared my favourite Brownie recipe with you and I showed you how I made an autumnal birthday card that you can make by using things you will most probably have at home anyway.

In December I am going to show you how I wrap my Christmas presents without spending a lot of money on wrapping material and I am definitely going to bake Christmas cookies.
December is going to be all about Christmas in my family and I think it is going to be great. Enjoy the last days in November and I hope you are looking forward to December! 🙂
