Life has happened quite a lot, lately.
Travel, ideas, health, food, reorientation, reading, experiments, lots of conversations about taste and emotion, and finally two moves (one with the sweetheart and one in the commuting town).
And because I also encounter so much goodness in real life and in my work afar from recipes but in regard to cooking and eating, I have been thinking for some time how I can let more of it flow in here. And I do have an idea about this, more on that very soon.

Well, but first a few nice things because August it is, or because it sometimes even feels a little like summer up in the German North, and, because:
Do you already know the dancing farmer? Alone the video is great, but then Jay Lavery has a permaculture farm, too, a lovely Facebook page and has been on the Ellen show (best to watch the video on his FB site, on Youtube the song had to be removed for copyright reasons.)

No matter if you are expecting guests and are in the midst of a houseshining, want to slow dance later this night around the kitchen tabel or if you rather spend those days between years with a cordless screwdriver, like I do.
Maybe this music mix is a nice company.

Happy new year, let it glitter!

Kindest, Anni

Actually, I wanted to be in good time before Christmas Eve to inspire you for Christmas gifts once again 1st with these fine bio-spices to self-mix (such fun!), 2nd my favorite knife, 3rd these fine cold-pressed oils (I say only apricot kernels, white poppy, hazelnut …) 4th this extremely delicious alternative to espresso or you could 5th place the most delicious natural citrus fruits from here under the tree. Of course 6th the wonderful healing broth book, since which arrival always a large pot is bubbling on my stove,  7th the awesome (I finally yesterday held it in my hand) healthy baking book of my dearest friend Veronika, 8th this beautifully illustrated first cookbook by Apartamento, in which cooks and foodies were asked for their favorite recipes, and 9th this book, discovered via always inspiring Frl Text, with drawings (!) by chef Ferran Adria. And certainly 10. this record of a band, which I discovered way too late.
I would have loved to, really. Alone, there was a move in between and the xtimes virus infection of this year.

Saffron Turmeric Latte

I am a big fan of homemade Christmas gifts, preferably edible in any form. That is why I can not withhold from you my latest discovery, which beams the loved golden milk into a completely different dimension. Because sometimes it has to be something special.

In this cold season I really like golden milk, it is so warming, calming and as proven inflammation-inhibiting. With a hint of saffron, however, it becomes a decadent delicacy, which is also pretty fine after the meal as an alternative to espresso.
For me, saffron has always had a tremendous appeal, whether it be risotto, ice cream or in cakes. I like this sweet-smelling, musty note, which lends a the precious aroma to any dish, and a touch of the orient, which the scent exudes. In addition there is a wonderful mood-lightening color, which even intensifies the warm golden color of the milk.
So time for a golden milk upgrade – why did not I get there earlier?

So it was really his last album.
There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.
I will miss him.

Oh 2016. You wild thing.
So much has happened this year, in the wide world and in the small and near one.
