The countdown to Christmas is running, there is less than a day left. Do you get all your christmas presents? Fortunately I do. But if you call yourself a food blogger (even if you are “only” a casual blogger), you are expected to give little gifts from the kitchen. Sadly, i was very busy during the last few weeks. And although I have been this week off, there have been so many things to be done like clean up our flat, do the laundry, buy groceries and so on (simply everything that came off badly recently and need to be done before holidays can start), that i have had no time to stay in my kitchen to cook jam or bake some more cookies (all the cookies, i have baked before are allready gone…). But lucky me, i have a last-minute recipe for German cinnamon roasted almonds (you can also use any other nuts), which are made in under 10 minutes.
“Santa Claus is coming to town…”. Only a few days remain until Christmas Eve, so i think it is okay to have this song stuck on my head. Ever since I can remember, christmas time was always my favourite time of the year. I know this sounds like a phrase somehow, but I really love how everything around me turns calm and the christmas lighting of almost every window lights up the city. The only missing thing for a perfect christmas season is snow. Unfortunatly I am living in a city, where it rarely snows. Ironically, we have a really high rainfall, but we hardly ever get snow. In fact, it is just to warm for snow at the moment, that we can only hope and dream of white christmas here in North Gemany.
