Little bites of heaven.......

Good Morning Everyone, I am writing my post Sunday Post this morning, as I am on my to Hamburg to see the Lion King on stage!

Friday Evening, our neighbors came for over dinner.......finally! We have all been either out with the flu, or busy with work. It was, as it always is a wonderful evening.

For New Recipe Sunday I am sharing with you a part of our desert last night.

Mandarine Oranges dipped in chocolate 
and a touch of sea salt

So easy.....Just dip mandarine orange slices in melted chocolate and sprinke with sea salt. Chill in fridge for a little while,.....serve and enjoy!

New Recipe Sunday is finally back! We are ready to take on 2015!

Please forgive the delay.....the flu took over my house and we are now finally all back to normal. For our first recipe this year...I would like to share with you all something simple, fast, and easy.....So simple, fast, and easy that I threw it together and it had on the table in 35 minutes!

Chicken Breast Filet with Mushrooms

covered in lots of Mozzarella cheese

So just take the chicken breasts....season with your favorite seasonings (i used a "garden herb mix" that is actually for salad dressing, cover in olive oil and back for about 30 minutes in the oven(375°F) Shortly before you take it out, cover with mushrooms and cheese.

While the chicken is in the oven, make some rice, chill the wine, and set the table.

Happy New Year Everyone.........Can it really be the 3rd of January 2015......if I did not know it better, I would say I have been in a deep sleep for year.  :)

As all of you, I too made some new years resolutions and one of them, of course was to devote more time to Cook Bake Love....... I have sooo many ideas that I would like to share with all of you and so heres to keeping new years resolutions!!

When it comes to Christmas and Tablescapes, I need more than just Christmas Eve and Christmas Day 1 and 2( in germany we have to Christmas Holidays! ), I have sooooooooo many ideas. Today I would like to share with you my Christmas Eve Tablescape.


With every tablescape I try to add some edible decorations. This year the Santas from Lindt some chocolate Kugeln were enjoyed by all.

Love my little red lanterns....Found them at Action Markt in Cloppenburg(something tells me I should have bought more than just 3!)

Christmas Dishes make this table perfect. My mom and my sisters have the same set. They are german made, but only sold in the United States.

Our Christmas Tree this year.... the three of us go to a tree farm and chop down our own. I was skeptical at first, but in the end very happy with the own we chose.

Happy Tablescaping Everyone!

A beautiful fall

We here in Berlin we have been enjoying a gorgeous autumn...Littel rain lots of sunshine and may chances of enjoying the great outdoors. Here are two tablescapes that I recently created for our outdoor dining area.

The napkins were made from some old curtain material.

Found this idea on the what you can do with dried grains. 

The leaves I found at Nanu Nana......


The wooden charger as well as the cake stand were made from a tree we cut down a few years ago.

One more look....

Greetings! It has been awhile, but I am still here...

 Today I would like to share with you pictures of our weekend outing to the "big city" (we live only 20 minutes by car away from downtown Berlin). That´s right only 20 mintues by car and yet we seldom take the time to go into the city...well unless we have guests than we are all over the city showing them the hightlights and soaking in the history. WELL, we had another reason to go into the city this past Saturday. The Pergamon Museum closed its main attraction this past Sunday. They are doing extensive renovations to the museum and so the main attraction---the Altar has to be closed for the next FIVE years. My unborn great nephew Jacob  will be entering 1st grade before they are done with the renovations. Wrap your brain around that one. Now mind you, we have had all year to go to the museum, but typical for us we waited till the last minute. OUr fist last minute attempt was on Wednesday afternoon......(that is a long story that I will save for another day) Our second attempt was Saturday morning! We left the car at home, took our bikes and off we went. We also took advantage of public transport. Getting up at the crack of dawn was soo worth it. First of all the Pergamon is an amazing place and secondly no line. We still had to wait about 30 minutes before the museum opened, but with the help of coffee and smart phones we  along with the other 8 people survived.

So sit back and enjoy the pictures..... if you want the history info too, well you know where to go!

The Alex....still in the fog it was that early in the morning.
