Happy Thanksgiving!

What a wonderful Thanksgiving with lovely friends and great food.

Besides all this I love the colors of this years fall.

I can't get enough of this redish, orange and yellow.

Yoga sweets for your soul….

I am about to jump in a plane to Istanbul for a weekend trip but I have to feature this beautiful spiritual jewelry by Om-Devi-Design here before I leave. My yoga teacher creates almost everything customized and the results are gorgeous. I had to buy myself a beautiful Buddha necklace and “Namaste” bracelet.  And I am still thinking about more and more and more…Have a look at this beautiful work of  Om-Devi-Design


November is the perfect month for soups. Something warm that gives you the feeling to heat up from inside can’t be denied. That’s why I decided to cook a nice bean soup with some spicy spices inside. See how my soup turned out to be:

2 cans of Cannellini beans – each 450g
500 ml tomato passata
1 glass of red wine
1 liter of chicken stock
2 table spoons of vegetable stock powder
2 packages of diced bacon – each 200g
2 Onions
1 garlic clove
1 spoon of olive oil

Start with cutting the onions into small pieces and put them together with the bacon into a pan of hot olive oil. Fry it until the bacon is crispy and deglaze them with the red wine. Wait for another two minutes before you add the chicken stock. Let it boil up for round about 5 minutes and then add the beans, the passata and the peeled garlic clove. Finally add one table spoon of Harissa to the soup and the vegetable stock powder. The longer the soup cooks, the better it tastes. I cooked it for about two hours and it was extremely yummy. My husband ate it the next day and he fell in love with me.

I recommend some fresh baked baguettes and a very dry red wine. My favorite wine at the moment is a Shiraz named Jinda Lee from the new world. Cheers!

Welcome on my blog. I decided to write this blog cause I want to share some sweet things with you. Within the last years I found so many inspiring ideas in the internet. Inspirations coming from all over the world, and I was always missing a side that is bundling them. So I decided to bundle for myself and if I already bundle for myself, I can share my bundles with you at the same time. 

I hope you will enjoy reading and you will get inspired.
