Spring, winter, spring… weather keeps changing every day here. Last Friday we were having another BBQ with temperatures above 20°C and not even 24 hours later it was snowing and below 0°C… this is so absolutely crazy and my body really doesn’t like these extreme changes in temperature!!!
Anyhow, I had another great week and still can’t believe that it is Friday again!!! Here comes my High Five For Friday weekly recap:
1. New Life-Motto
Last weekend, I found a new motto for life! I can’t believe how much I enjoy baking and preparing desserts considering that I hated it a year ago!!! I always thought I am simply not as talented as others when it comes to baking but the only thing I can advise you to do is practice, practice, practice!!! It really helps!!! I promise!! I would never have guessed a year ago that I could EVER make a swimming pool cake like the one I made for my birthday…
2. Mini Cakes for my Loved Ones
Obviously, I cannot eat everything I bake for myself and therefore, all my loved ones around me profit from my latest addiction to bake! Last weekend, I made these yummy and extremely cute cakes that I showed off on my new cake plate! This weekend, we are expecting friends over from Switzerland. What I am going to bake has yet to be decided!
3. Winter, seriously???
As I mentioned above, temperatures have dropped the beginning of the week and we “enjoyed” some winter weather with a little bit of snow. Not too much but it already made me want to stay at home, drink hot tea and eat cake until it would be gone again… But I was really brave and went outside on Sunday to take my Tree Project picture. Snow around “my” tree is a very rare occasion this year…
4. Homemade Pasta
For my birthday, I got a new KitchenAid tool from my parents: The pasta maker! Needless to say I wanted to try it as soon as possible! Wednesday was THE day to make pasta. Christian’s sister came over as she has Wednesday afternoons off and we prepared the dough and were working a long while but the pasta that came out was truly delicious! I am going to write a separate post about making pasta shortly!!!
5. Back to Spring
After 2 days of winter, we are now back to full spring! Sun is out again and temperatures reached the 20°C mark once again over the last couple of days… My tulips looked very disappointed during the “winter days” but are now happy again that they can take a sunbath in our living room each day…
Another awesome weekend is ahead of us! Tomorrow, we are going to see a football (soccer) match. Dortmund is playing agains Stuttgart. Of course, I am supporting Dortmund as I am from a city that is just next to Dortmund. It will be the first time for me to be in a football stadium and weather forecasts are great so that I look forward to it A LOT!!! I will keep you posted!!! For instant moments, check my Instagram Account.
Sunday will be another baking day as our friends from Switzerland are coming over. I am also looking forward to my Sunday Recipe Link-Up. This week, I am going to share another baking recipe – stay tuned!
