… still trying to do less 🌀

In the weeks leading up to Christmas I felt like I was constantly out of breath—even when I was sitting down, drinking a cup of tea. I wasn’t “stressed” per se … although some might argue that this is exactly what being stressed is; feeling like you’re still “on”, although you’re actually ~ relaxing ~. I always felt like I just had to take a really deep breath …, but couldn’t.

looking back on 2019 ✨

Another year has passed and I’m looking back on 2019 just briefly. A glance over the shoulder, so to say.

Ein Südtiroler Wintermärchen - vier Tage in und um Brixen und Sterzing 🇮🇹🏔🚡

Von IDM Südtirol wurde ich auf eine Pressereise eingeladen. Dieser Blogpost ist nicht gesponsert.

Winter in den Bergen ist anders – echter irgendwie und gewollt. Mit dicken Schneehauben auf ausladenden Ästen von Nadelbäumen, legt sich eine winterliche Magie über die Landschaft. Und so hat einen, nach ein paar knarzenden Schritten auf Neuschnee durch weihnachtlich beleuchtete Ortschaften oder den Wald, ein Märchenbilderbuch verschluckt.

three vegan christmas cookies ⭐️

It’s been very busy in my vegan Christmas bakery this past week ~ as you might have seen over on instagram ~ and I’ve been getting a lot of questions about the vegan cookie recipes I use.
Christmas is around the corner, so maybe you’ve already done ALL THE BAKING, but I thought I’d share my three favourite vegan Christmas cookie recipes anyway! You can always bookmark this post for next year. 🙃

vegan christmas fruit bread 🍎⭐️

My mum always used to make a Christmas fruit bread with lots of nuts and dried fruit and baked it in these small baking tins of different shapes and sizes (at least 10-15 I guess, sometimes she made multiple batches) and gave them away to people on Christmas. She wrapped them in tin foil and a christmas-y kitchen towel and added evergreens and little Christmas ornaments. She’d been doing this ever since I can remember and people absolutely adored her fruit bread. Last Christmas was the first Christmas without her celebrated fruit bread. And although her very own recipe still exists of course, I’d never ever share it. I also don’t feel ready to follow in her footsteps and take over her annual Christmas bread baking. I’ll probably bake some someday, but I think I won’t take over and keep up her tradition of baking Christmas bread for all of the family’s friends and relatives. Some traditions die with the people who first came up with them, I guess.

However, I’ve been missing the taste of this kind of cake that is so stuffed with fruits and nuts that you’re not even sure if there’s flour in it at all. So I kind of made up my own, vegan Christmas fruit bread and although it doesn’t taste like my mother’s, it is pretty yummy and also easy to make.

q&a – uni, work, whales, and living in berlin …

The long awaited Q&A blogpost is finally here. It took me a while, because I’m currently working on doing less and slowing down. I don’t know if it is the end of year hustle, or if I just had a bit too much on in the last few weeks, but I oftentimes feel like I’m trapped in a hamster wheel and still don’t get everything done, although I’m seemingly going nonstop. Anyways, that’s probably the topic of yet another blogpost. You’re here for the Q&A.
