Say What. Turmeric Yuzu Butter!

8:57 PM I recently got myself a new cookbook and I can't tell you how much I love it! I tried plenty of recipes already, and I am experiencing food in a totally different way thanks to this book! I'm talking about Eat. Cook. L.A. - a very refreshing cooking experience, yo, I highly recommen…

The Schnitzel Of Your Dreams Is Coated With Challah

2:10 PM As a German potato, I am an expert when it comes to German-ish food and anything that is deep fried - this is our culture. I grew up eating a lot of deeply fried things, plenty of meat, and anything that is versatile to potatoes, haha. 
Schnitzel has become one of my favorite foods when I th…

Mindfulness With Kids

6:39 PM Today I want to talk about something that is not dealing with my own life or situation, since I don't have kids yet, but I can share many memories and experiences from my mental health during my childhood. 
I can't really recall when I started noticing things changing with my mental…

NEW YORK STORY #45: A Farewell. Bye North Brooklyn Farms

12:23 PM I woke up this morning, very early, catching the first sunrays and taking the early AMs to just find a quiet moment to myself. I love this time of the year, when the day actually starts beyond early and the morning hours have something really mysterious to offer.  The air is still cool, pr…

The Art Of Resting

11:20 AM Good morning world. Today feels like Wednesday, or Saturday, or even a Sunday. I feel like I need to slow down a little bit and just do nothing. Maybe I will just spend some hours on my new carpet and read a book...
Not to be insensitive here, but these circumstances give us a lot of time t…

An Essay: Finding The Perfect Meditation In Making Challah

11:44 AM Never have I thought there'd be a food or special treat out there which made me so damn happy and fulfilled. Actually the last thing that made me so happy was tasting and experimenting with taro - my life.  Then, during quarantine, something very special happened - a connection and supe…

An Essay: Trends That Connect The World In Times Of Separation

12:36 PM How's everyone doing today? How's your home isolation going? I know it's still hard and time feels like processing in slow motion. I hope you are all doing well - and even if you feel a bit off, this will pass, too. 
I have to admit that I felt a little upside-down this week as…

#TreatingMyself: Artichoke Pizza, NYC

10:20 AM This story takes us back to 2014. I went to Greene Street to check out the Bathing Ape Store and started talking to the three guys who were working there. All of them were excited to share their favorite spots and seights with me and I knew I could get cool tips from guys who work at a pla…

Food Anxiety In Times Of Corona

6:16 PM With a virus conquering the whole planet, no one had the idea that we were facing so many different threats at the same time. I remember in the early beginnings of this pandemic, I shook my head when I saw people panic and buy all of the essential things... It started with hygiene things an…

....When I Realized That Weck Jars Are The Damn Thang

9:41 AM Let me share a little eye-opener today. (And maybe we can also exchange here). Since I moved to my new place (it's been 10 months...), I actually wanted to upgrade my whole dinner ware and invest into some nice pieces which I can beautifully drape in my shelf and feel like a real grown-…

This Is The Salad You Want To Eat Every Day!

4:03 PM I love basic recipes and I love to work on my basic tings until they reach genius level! One perfect example is my green salad. Ughhh... boring. I know.  I am not the biggest salad freak, but when it comes to healthy nutrition, I know that I have to add more greens into my daily - a salad i…

Entering The World Of Ikigai - The Reason For Being

8:45 AM I remember when I was in my teenage years, one question popped up several times when I wrote in my diary: why am I on this planet? What are we actually doing here? There must be a purpose or are we just wasting our time? I was addicted to find my purpose and understand what my mission was. 

NEW YORK STORY #44: An Ode To The Container Store

2:12 PM In times like this, I think there is no better timing to write appreciation posts and love letters to the things and people who bring us joy.  How much I miss to wander around in the city and hit every store that I want to visit without standing in line outside, having regulations and thous…

#TreatingMyself: Kona Coffee and Company, NYC (Okkkk. Is this the best coffee I ever had?)

10:02 AM I want to continue today writing about my favorite things from NYC. It's been a little bit that I shared a new #TreatingMyself, but I felt it was weird sharing great culinary things from my favorite places, while the city actually faces a terrible crisis and who knows if all our belove…
