I don’t like nougat that much but these nougat buttons are a favorite in the Christmas Cookie Jar. They get made envy year. At least for the past 10 if not longer. I like recipes that are quick and easy and don’t take too much time. This is one. And it taste wonderful too. It has a very smooth almost velvety texture, a chocolate-nougat taste and the white chocolate gives it the extra flavor. I know I am raving but you really need to give them a try. I promise you won’t regret➢ KEEP ON READING
Today when I opened up Instagram my bookclub people from Munich showed the snowflakes dancing. So it is close to winter. I know it officialy starts December 21 but I always feel like December 1 is the day we can say it is winter. Meterologist predict it will be a very cold winter in Germany 2021/22 and I don’t object. I love it. Bring it on. If I can make a wish: let it be freezing cold for a week so all the ice in the lakes freezes all smooth and then add a bit of snow to make the rest of the country look great too. Best winter conditions. Oh I am ready. Can you feel it? Of course I share my winter bucket list for 2021 again.➢ KEEP ON READING
Do you like playing games when the family is together? We used to play a lot over the holdiays. Usually board games. I decided to create some fun Christmas Bingo templates. They can even be used during zoom calls. For that I asked a on instagram about certain phrases that are always said during the holidays. Some where really fun and some very unique and specific to traditions and families. However I tried to incorporate as many as possible.➢ KEEP ON READINg
Are you ready for the best season of the year? Christmas is just around the corner and decorations are pulled from storage. New things bought. Recipe books are being looked at the planing started. I am reiht there with you. For the last couple years I have been looking at the cute little Christmas villages made of house lanterns. I love how they cast a cozy light to the house. Such a fun way to decorate. And you can start a bit earlier than Christmas too. I decided to make my own DIY House Lantern for Christmas. And as you know I like to recycle materials and so this another fun craft for my ongoing series “Recycle Quick Tip“.➢ KEEP ON READING
Welcome to my annual wreath celebration. I just checked and it is my elevens wreath idea I share on this blog. So I have done a lot of new interpretations within the last years. After last years recycling idea I felt more natural this time around. That is why a modern natural wreath with acorn hats was created in some hours of labor.
When I was walking in the park in fall I kept coming across the acorns. You all probably know that the hats keep on falling off even when you manage to find an intact one. As kid it always bothered me. Of course you can glue them back on but it is not the same somehow. Anyhow I had a closer look at the hats and found they are a beauty in themselves. So I collected a few and carried them in my pocket. Through the next days I kept touching them and sometime I came up with the idea that they should be the star in this years natural wreath.➢ KEEP ON READING
