While I’m struggling to put the happiness about my third finished cookbook into words (“Sweets” will become available in February, more about it soon), December was far from being the quiet month and -despite best plans- I just didn’t find the time to blog. New projects kept popping up unexpectedly and some of my favorite food blogging friends paid me a visit.
Picture yourself after a very casual dinner at home and maybe, just maybe, you’ve eaten a tad too much. Now do you tend to think along the lines of “Boy, I really feel full” ? or more like “I wonder what I could have for dessert?”, “Does the fridge offer something sweet?” and ”Where is the chocolate?”. The notion of a second, or third stomach is one you’re quite familiar with?
There finally seems to be light at the end of the tunnel. Shooting for my new cookbook is almost done and if all goes well I will FINALLY have my kitchen back in a few days time. The very same kitchen, that has turned into a daylight studio and chaotic storage room over the last months. Featuring a fridge that – yet again – has proven to be way too small for all the delicious treats, and still, while it always was filled to the brim, Oliver sometimes had a hard time finding something in there he was allowed to eat. How’s that for a tease?
Just finished another small milestone on the way to my next cookbook and boy do I wish I could already share the recipe I just shot today. It might even end up on the cover… but we’ll see. Anyway, sorry for the long radio silence! Speaking of radio, earlier today my eyes got stuck to my desktop notes – where I keep track of my latest music discoveries – and I decided to do a quick post and share them. So many great finds and fabulous new releases over the past weeks!
Ever since we introduced our neighbors to our classic Flammkuchen two years ago, we are not allowed to participate in our annual backyard party without it anymore. Which isn’t really a big deal, since I could have it once a week, easily – it’s so simple to prepare and tastes so damn good.
Judging by our pantry one could easily be let to believe I am working on a cookbook about jams and jellies. But no, I am not. Summer fruits just taste so wonderful right now, how could you not want to preserve this for cold winter months? The more the merrier.
