It has been a while since I had the time to post something. I haven’t really cooked or baked anything worth posting about. Today finally, I got to bake a cake for my friends’ birthday party. I hope, she won’t read this before tomorrow..otherwise, the surprise is gone. But I think she suspects me bringing a cake (as I usually did in the past). 

This time I made a lemon-rosemary-tarte with meringue. Visually, it turned out quite well.

I hope, it tastes good as well!



I have really nice colleagues. I admit that I like some colleagues more than the other ones and some are really annoying. But I guess that’s normal. 😉

One time I was joking around with one of my colleagues and said something like “you never bring cake for me only for yourself”. The next time he was at our office again he gave me a small bag of candies. 🙂

I am not completely done furnishing the new apartment and also, the new internet provider is testing my out my patience, but I am very happy about my new home. My neighbours are lovely people – and I have a real kitchen now! 🙂

The kitchen was great for my housewarming / birthday party. There was enough space for two people washing vegetables, frying tofu, rolling kimbap and baking cakes almost simultaneously.

Of course, the food prepared in the kitchen was delicious, too. 😉

house-foodAll of the dishes were vegetarian. For meat-lovers, I seperately grilled teriyaki-style pork chops. There was some sort of Asian-style noodle salad, green salad with tofu-sesame-dressing, fried tofu with satè sauce, sweet chili and/or sesame-soy sauce, tomato-chickpea-parsley-salad, and kimbap (no picture).

For dessert, there was fresh watermelon, strawberry cake and marble cake.

The marble cake was more a “chess-cake”. It turned out well inside.. outside, I had a rather stupid idea of decorating the cake with crumbles like a blackout cake. The cake looked like a molehill. XDchess-cakeBut it was still tasty.
