tartlet for my daughter

for those of you looking for nice raw treats: how do you like this tartlet?


the crust is made of dates & almonds, filling: grated apple, ground poppy seeds & agave nectar, all topped with banana-slices. i got the recipe for the filling from pavlina – thank you for this inspiration!

my first award!

i am very happy to have been given my first award by another blogger – jademond.



about the award : this award is given to a blog that invests and believes in PROXIMITY – nearness in space, time and relationships ! these blogs are exceedingly charming. these kind of bloggers aim to find and be friends. they are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. please give more attention to these writers!

thank you, ramona!

first prize

another surprise coming with the post: i won the first prize in the webEdition game! (yes, i spent some time with it before christmas … ). it’s a tom-tom navigation system … exactly the accessory my good old polo has been missing 😉


spontaneous collage

this afternoon, sitting in the kitchen with my daughter & working on cards for valentine’s day, the post arrived. a letter from freiburg – what a joy! inside, there were some yummy goodies (dried pineapple, mango & mulberries & two pieces of raw chocolate from keimling … delicious!). we ate these up instantly … i. e. me, i got one piece of chocolate & one piece of pineapple, my daughter guzzled the rest. furthermore, the letter contained wonderful images of food: fruit, greens, smoothies … so we spontaneously decided to make collages of it. this is what i came up with:

somehow this intensifies my yearning for summer ...

somehow this intensifies my yearning for summer ...

i put it up at the door of the kitchen cupboard where my son stores his food 😉 … let’s see whether this visualisation will have an effect on his choices …

thank you for this wonderful gift, dear ramona & charlotte!

flicker of hope

after too many cold & grey days & weeks – i really don’t like winter … february seems to be the hardest month … yearning for sun & warmth – today the sun is shining, sky is blue and it feels quite warm outside! i took the chance to finally disseminate the chickweed seeds. nothing to see right now, of course – how long will it take?
