Chard ‘n’ Apple.

Dear readers, I just ate lunch THAT great that I have to immediately share it with you. Chard ‘n’ Apple Pizza.

It’s a very, very thin and crispy pizza with a unbelievably tasty topping. Let’s bake! (Deutsche Version.) More


Upside Down.

I am still waiting for the keys to my new home – but it’s not going to take long anymore! Until then, I can bake at home with Mum. This pie was teamwork. And this pie is a September pie – Apples taste absolutely great now! So we made Upside Down Apple Pie.

It’s really quick, easy and oh, tasty! (Deutsche Version.) More

Simply Savoury.

This week, I made something quick and easy before I went to work: Apple Muffins. They’re so easy you only need one bowl, a mixer and a knife. But I can tell you, they weren’t only quick and easy, they were also absolutely tasty and luscious, too.

What to do with a box full of apples.

First: Make apple sauce.

Oooh, yummy. Mix it with yoghurt for breakfast. You know you want it!

Then, go to the Christkindlmarkt (Christmas market) at Rathausplatz in Vienna.

What can you find there?


Cutting myself an apple break.

I’m sure you know this feeling when everything’s too much and you really need a break. Right now. My break looks like this. Apple Strudel.

Today I woke up after another bad night’s sleep with too much going on in my head. I was tired. I knew I had thousands of more important things to do and to study, but I couldn’t. Today, I decided I was going to take a break. So I wrote my most important mails of the day and went in the kitchen. And then I did what I wanted to do for a month. Bake an apple strudel.


Happy Birthday to us!

This is a piece of my and Mum’s self-made awesome Sacher birthday cake.

(We put a thin layer of marzipan under the frosting! Yummy, yummy, yummy.)
We’re celebrating today because I’ll leave Vienna by train tomorrow. Where will I go?


It’s apple time again!

Apple Pie again! Apple Pie, Apple Pie, Apple Pie!

I love this apple pie so much, I could gobble it up at once.

I also love to make it. The dough always feels so silky and I love to make the crust and the stripes on top. It’s fun. It’s also fun to lay the apple pieces just the way I’m in the mood. Today, I made an apple flower.


I love the smell when it’s in the oven.

I love to put it out, let it cool and then having a pretty, pretty apple pie waiting for you.

I love to eat it with a cup of coffee and my family.

Apple Pie at its best.

Dear German-speaking readers, find the recipe here. But I use three biiig apples and a lot more sugar. And real butter or margarine. Dear English-speaking readers, just leave a comment if you want the recipe.

Unfortunately, baking apple pie holds me from things I should really do. Studying, for example. As a friend of mine told me, I’ve got motivation troubles until I’ve got time troubles.
