1st of December 

We decided to treat you with an inspiring Advent Calendar this December and invite you to SIGN UP with us to slow down your day for just 3 minutes and let the photos take you someplace cosy. The only thing we cannot manage is to send along some fragrances while you enjoy. The smell of hot mulled wine, a perfumed candle with pomegranate or fir tree fragrance.

Maybe you might just think you can even smell it while you read the post ... 

 The old, old trees below our house are the most beautiful ones to me!

I was recently asked for fail-safe Christmas Eve menu, easy to prepare and less stressful for everyone. I have an answer, and I promise I will share this one with you soon!

      For now I am so excited to show you some recipes I made with my friend Claudia, who is a raw food chef and comes up with the most delicious recipes, that are simple and taste delicious.

Remember the Palatschinken or the Gluten-free Apricot Cake from June this year?

All goes into the food processor and done!

Chocolate Glaze:

60gr/ 1/2 cup cocoa butter melted at 42°C

Your food processor must be much better than mine, I had to transfer the mix to my PacoJet and then I was happy with the consistency!

The mix can be easily formed into small balls between your palms and then you first pierc them with a toothpick dip them in chocolate and place them with the help of a second toothpick onto a plate or even better on a parchment paper, so you can remove them easily after they dry.
