Living in a big city like Berlin, I try to surround myself with nature as often as I can. Although the traffic and the streetlights make the city feel lively, what could be more 'alive' than an own little garden on the balcony? With cars and busses driving by, I plant different herbs like arugula or parsley, accompanied by some colourful flowers. Add some vegetables and you almost can harvest food from your own garden - like this very first radish we raised by only taking a little time each day to take care of it. Here's to many more self-grown ingredients for our kitchen!This would spice up every kitchen wall. (free printables!)
Oh, going for a walk at this place must be magical...
And I'm already more than excited for this cookbook!
Need some flower recipes?
And last but not least: one of my favorite photo series combining flowers with ice cream.

There is a hidden place in California where no sign is guiding the way. Where it is so empty that one greets each other when walking by. Where all you can feel on your face is the wind blowing. Where all you can see is the waves washing up the big rock. Where all you want to do is to seize the day.

Making macarons. With this goal in mind, I looked for a recipe, wrote down the ingredients, went twice to the supermarket because I forgot something and then started to make something on my own. Sieving the almonds, weighing the egg yolks and then baking everything together at the right temperature were all little steps that led to the learning result: one, even two baking sheets full of macarons au chocolat. From this day on, I know that I can achieve something by only taking the first step to just do it.

Is there anything better than freshly baked bread right out of the oven with just some butter on it? Baking bread, other than cake, is much more: a dedication towards basic ingredients. A creation out of the purpose to share. With my hands covered in dough, I think of all the gatherings which are still to come.
