An apple a day keeps the doctor away. Okay, this is nothing new for most of you. But seriously, I will never have a problem to eat one apple a day at least. Fortunately you can buy apples all the year, but in autumn you get the best ones here in Germany. I think, this is one reason, why I love autumn so much. Another reason is the changing of colours, leaves turn red and yellow and the light becomes so warm and cozy. I wish I could enjoy that beautiful side of autumn from september until november. Unfortunatly I live in a city with a really high level rainfall (even in summer!) and everything is just grey in grey at the moment.
In Germany, you say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But to tell the truth, I am not really a “breakfast girl”. Well, it’s because i am more the “just-5-minutes-more-in-bed” girl and i cannot eat when i am just got up. Thus my first breakfast constists of one coffee during the week. I know that is not the healthiest way. But i think, like everything in life, it is a matter of balancing. So whenever it is going to be a very hectic morning without time for caring of myself i try to compensate, wether it be with a little walk outside after work, a salad for lunch or a healthy late breakfast.
If someone would ask me about the concept of this blog I could not find an exact answer, because i have not a real concept yet. Well, it is right that everything on this blog indicates it is going to be a food blog. But honestly i do not want to be comitted. It should be more a “everything that makes me happy”-blog. And standing in the kitchen (not all day of course ;-)) for cooking and baking is one of those things that makes me happy. I love to cut vegetables after work or whisk ingredients for cake on my weekend and leave all negativ thoughts behind me. It’s just relaxing for me…
During the last few days I spent every free minute working on the blog layout and new logo. And I tell you I am a complete beginner at all that web stuff and have no idea about graphic design. Maybe you can imagine how much efford it took. But on the other side i am a little bit proud of myself, because before i start this new little project (an own blog) i could not believe that i can manage all those things by myself. Well, I was a little bit concerned about missing the right moment for posting the recipe for these fluffy and airy dessert (or cake?) named Pavlova. Because it’s allready September, Autumn is just ahead and meringue, peaches and yogurt somehow sounds summery, doesn’t it?
