a birthday cake like sunshine on snowy hills

by Eva Felis on December 28, 2013

I am a late summer birthday girl and can’t actually imagine, how unfair or complicated it is to having a birthday just around Christmas. I heard complains like: it’s hard to celebrate because friends and family are already busy with all this holiday stuff and a party is not as appreciated as in any other Weiterlesen



fall fruit streusel cake

by Eva Felis on October 14, 2013

I told you, I would serve you a cake as soon as my oven is back on duty. The service guy gave us the pleasure of his company – finally. I have to admit I had been miffed about this situation. We are in the era where anything can be delivered in between 24 hour Weiterlesen



peach wähe

by Eva Felis on August 1, 2013

It’s the Swiss National Day today! I have an ode to the Swiss cuisine on my mind, to tell the truth, I wished I had one. But I bet you are not honestly interested in my lyrics. You are here for the food, so am I. Swiss cuisine is so much more than fondue and Weiterlesen



apricot and almond cake

by Eva Felis on June 7, 2013

I am about to leave town and country, my bags are packed and it’s about time. I waited many weeks and even months went by since I booked my flight. Soon I’ll be home at my parent’s house, my other home.
I am anticipating sitting at the kitchen table, drinking coffee while my mum makes her Weiterlesen

Did you miss me last week? I took a week off, actually two weeks because the last post had been a guest post from the lovely Sandy from confiture de vivre.
The truth is and I am just saying it: I was busy but in a positive way. My family had been visiting me, I had Weiterlesen



German peach streusel cake

by 1 big bite on August 15, 2012

There are things that would force me to get up early on a weekend day like tornado siren, earthquake or fire alarm. But there are also some enjoyable circumstances like the scent of freshly brewed coffee waving into my bedroom and tinkling my nose (hint!) or the anticipated trip to a peach orchard.
Since our visit Weiterlesen



berry and pistachio coffee cake

by 1 big bite on June 14, 2012

Do you believe in destiny? Actually I am not the one thinking someone else is in the driving seat of my life’s car (this is so ‘The Game of Life :))  On the other hand if this cake is not controlled by kismet or karma or what ever, I don’t know…
I have to admit this Weiterlesen



chocolate hazelnut cake

by 1 big bite on February 24, 2012

So many things are happening in and about my small world. If you look up and left and right you might discover the new look of this side. It’s not just a new design, I moved the whole thing from iweb to wordpress. I haven’t finished yet, many things still need to be updated. But Weiterlesen



apple cake with toffee topping

by 1 big bite on October 4, 2011

Last week had been a fun one! My sister and her friend are visiting from Germany and we headed to Chicago to escape my small town and have some urban pleasure in the big city. The windy city lived up to its name and we got literally blown away all day long. The main things Weiterlesen
