Silent Night.

It’s Christmas Eve! Are you prepared?

I love my new Christmas tree decoration. It’s from Stockholm. It was the last thing to hang on the tree. I’m ready… (Deutsche Version.) More


A whole lot of Christmas biscuits.

It was Biscuit Baking Day again. And we baked a lot of biscuits. A whole lot.

I have a lovely filled biscuit tin. Interested in our biscuit varieties? Be prepared for a whole lot of yummy biscuit photos. (Deutsche Version.) More

Dad’s Day.

Happy birthday, Daddy! I hope you still have a piece of your Malakoff Cake left.

Since we’re living apart now, we celebrated Dad’s birthday on Sunday. (Deutsche Version.) More

Plain Vanilla.

You know I love Christmas time, right? I love it. It’s cosy. It’s comforting. It smells like Vanilla Crescents.

Vanilla crescents are simple. Plain vanilla biscuits. (Deutsche Version.) More

Much-loved Visitors.

I invited my parents for lunch today. And I cooked a Viennese speciality: Krautfleckerl. Which is cabbage pasta.

Doesn’t sound good? Oh, believe me, it is. (Deutsche Version.) More

Little Pretty Things.

Christmas is over. But what is left, are the things to enjoy. The Christmas tree is still here. Its great smell, too. A whole bunch of my Grandma’s biscuits has not been eaten yet. And I got little pretty things I love.

In London, I found a lot of them. I bought some to keep. And some of them, I got for Christmas. Others, I will give my friends for Christmas/New Year’s Eve.
Before going to London, I made a wish list. It said: “Biscuit Tin“. And I got a nice one.

It’s lovely. It’s from Marks & Spencer and filled with chocolate biscuits. They are yummy – Mum and I were allowed to taste them since we couldn’t decide for one of all the awesome biscuit tins. (In the end, we took two.) But I’m looking forward to opening it – after all the Christmas biscuits are gone -, sharing those biscuits and filling it with my own.

And I will bake my own biscuits with another wish on my list: Measuring cups.

I just couldn’t find the right ones in Vienna. So we decided to have a look at Selfridge’s. And there they were.

But what’s missing if you have measuring cups? Right: Measuring spoons. And those I found are pure awesomeness.


Merry Christmas to all of you.

My presents are wrapped. Bounty loves to help.

Gingerbread to hang on the tree was baked. And decorated with sugar glaze.
