Gosh, long time no hear but for a good reason. We started to remodel a new apartment. Lots of work, lots of old wallpaper that had to leave the walls and a lot of tumbling walls. Picture will follow soon, stay tuned!
Guys, time is flying. The time in Rome was amazing. Rome is an awesome city, full of culture, style and culinary joy. My husband and I stayed at the great Bed and Breakfast L’aquilone with our wonderful host Paolo.

We stayed in a very spacious and modern room with a balcony and a view over Rome. Paolo was sharing recommendations with us on dinners and cafés aside the touristy places which we enjoyed a lot. 

Rome was treating us well. 

The sun was shining, the Espresso at Antonini & St. Eustachio excellent and food to go for the soul. We were wandering through the city blessed with the beauty of history breathing out the winter mood that was stacked in our bones.

The next trip is next week….to the city that I call the beauty and the beast…Istanbul!

When in Rome...

Rome is next on our list....next weekend we will sit somewhere nice and eat something great. I am so excited. I can’t wait to go. I have never been in Rome before, so this is one of the cities where I get to explore things a lot. If you have any recommendations on good spots in Rome, let me know.

Escorted by an army of angels....

This might not be a topic for a blogpost but I am soo sad! Whitney Houston's funeral today was bittersweet and soo sad. She has been the icon of my teenage years and we were playing her up and down at home. My Mom and I loved to shake whenever there was a Whitney song around. She made us laugh, she made us cry but overall she gave us the feeling to be alive.

Whitney Houston was an extraordinary singer with the most beautiful voice I have ever heard. May she been escorted by an army of angels to heavenly peace. Bye Whitney!

Oh sweet love...sweet love....

Valentine’s Day is coming up and I amalmost forcing my hubby to do something nice with me. Frankly, he is not very much into such things and claims them to be part of a capitalistic system butstill I want a nice treat for Valentine’s Day. And while I am insisting on thatI was thinking why it is so important for women to be treated special on thatparticular day. I am thinking and thinking and nothing reasonable is coming upto my mind. I married the best man in life and he is treating me like a queen(most of the time) but I am still nagging him to do this in a more sophisticatedway on one day. Why? Cause I have browsing over so many nice Valentine Dayinspiration and I don’t wanna be missed out. Among a lot of lovely inspirationsI have found this extremely lovely e-magazine calledfunkytime

You have to check this out and you will most probably demand aneven sweeter treat from the one you love most. J

Happy New Year Calories....

Sorry English readers but this goes out in German :-)

Ich bin ein großer Fan von Eiszauber und ich mache ein Eis, wann immer ich kann, auch im Winter.

Bei uns gab es letztens ein Bratapfeleis.

Dafür habe ich kleingeschnittene Äpfel in Butter und braunem Zucker angebraten, mit einem ordentlichem Schuss Rum abgelöscht und kaltwerden lassen.

In der Zwischenzeit Nüsse kleingehackt und dann alles in die Eiszauber-Masse für Milch geschüttet.

Noch ein bißchen Zimt und Kardamon dazu, ab ins Eisfach und leicht angetaut servieren....meine Gäste haben es geliebt und wir haben es so schnell gegessen, dass wir vergessen haben ein Foto zu machen :-( Sorry!

Einfach nachmachen :-)
