I’ve been shopping a lot lately. Because I am absolutely terrified of winter time in Germany, I’ve been stocking up on lots of sweaters, jeans, jackets (more jackets than I actually need), boots and socks, the really cute thick kind. My mom and I have also made a checklist of all the things I need to buy before leaving Thailand. We’ve hit tons of shopping malls the last few days.

The other day I was starving after having walked around for hours and carrying a huge amount of shopping bags, I walked past a Cinnabon store. 

Oh man. Doesn’t the smell of freshly baked cinnamon rolls aka the one that tortures hungry people in shopping malls, wafting all around you makes you wanna drop everything immediately and stuff one in your mouth? Well, I couldn’t 🙁 It was almost time for dinner and my mom was just plain mean (love you, mom!).  

But hey, looking on the bright side, I wouldn’t have come up with this delicious Cinnabon-inspired granola recipe if I hadn’t been craving cinnamon rolls like crazy that day. Continue reading

What would you rather have on a lazy Sunday morning: pancakes or waffles?

Impossible question, I know.

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy a stack of fluffy pancakes with fruits every now and then, like these vanilla pancakes with roasted strawberries (hmm yummy!), but I personally prefer waffles on lazy mornings because they’re much quicker to whip up. You just need to preheat your waffle iron, make a simple batter in the meantime and you’re only a few minutes from having the best Sunday morning breakfast ever. 

No, scratch that.

Make it even better by preparing a simple berry compote to top your waffles.  Continue reading

I love eating sweet things. Donuts, cookies, chocolate, oh yes chocolate. I’m a fat kid at heart, but aren’t we all? When I’m craving something sweet, it’s almost impossible to satisfy my cravings unless I stuff myself with a mouthful of cookie, dipped in chocolate.

But I also like being healthy whenever I can. It just makes me feel amazing, both mentally and physically, like when I’m out with my family and have a huge bowl of salad, while my mom bites off from a slice of pizza. It feels good to know that you’re taking care of your body and nourishing it right.

A combination of those two things however, sweet and healthy, can be almost impossible to find.

An acai bowl is the answer. Continue reading
