The pre-Christmas time is often beautiful and contemplative, but can also be quite stressful. For this reason, we would like to show you some simple yoga poses for today’s St. Nicolas Day, which are soothing, relaxing and calm both the body and the mind. Weiterlesen
After we have already celebrated yesterday, today it is that time: My mother’s birthday! We celebrate this special day with a chocolate peanut cake. Of course, this recipe tastes well on every ‘not-birthday’! 🙂 Weiterlesen
Tomorrow it is that time again: My mother is celebrating her birthday! In our family, these festivities are traditionally celebrated with a Grittibänz-baking round on the evening before. My father solemnly divides the dough; the whole family (recently even the grandchild Akeera) each receive a dough ball and form with enthusiasm little dough figures. Raisin eyes, almond hair – and as much sugar rocks as a sweet extra! 🙂 Weiterlesen

Saturday night – why not wait for the snowflakes in the garden with a steaming cup of mulled wine (or grape juice)? Tell each other stories by the fire? If necessary, the hot delicacy can also be brewed on the stove and sip by sip be enjoyed along with a Christmas thriller… 😊 Weiterlesen
Finally, our favourite season is back: Advent has begun!
Traditionally we want to shorten the time until Christmas with an advent calendar – and this year, we let you join! For this reason, we will put every morning a Christmas surprise on our blog. 🙂

Our thoughts follow them. Towards the Mediterranean Sea, across Turkey, the Arabian Peninsula and the former Persia. Up to India.
This recipe from Amma Nishi will let you travel along – at least for a meal, I promise! 😊 Weiterlesen
