Scrumptious Pull-Apart Bread

Yay! My über-cool cousin (& her awesome daughter) are coming all the way to Berlin for a visit! In preparation for re-living our childhood with giggly-up-all-night-girly time I’ve been hunting for easy to make & fun to eat finger foods. I discovered this little gem and immediately strolled to kitchen and gave it a whirl. Naturally, I had to add a bit of my own imagination to the mix…

Luckily, inspiration soon struck & I was sifting through my stash for the ingredients!

It turned out a bit larger than I planned but she’ll grow into it soon enough! Here’s how to make your own with stuff I’m sure you already have around the house! Continue reading

Looks like …..?

Yesterday I had a wisdom tooth pulled…not as painful as I thought it would be but I still can’t eat anything crunchier than soup broth, pudding & yoghurt. As I’m in no mood to cook just for my hubby he went to the Metzger (deli) and got himself some Wuerstchen & Kartoffelsalat. Imagine our deviant delight when he opened the bag of Wuerstchen (sausages) & pulled out this beauty:

A W E S O M E!

From nearly every angle it looks just like….
