I began my new job yesterday! So far I like it, my coworkers are all very nice, the work seems interesting (I am looking forward to getting into it properly) and the workplace itself? It is very different than working at the university. Overall it is very nice to be working again, getting up in the morning with somewhere to go! Continue reading Rainbow Meringues→
So, after 2½ months of not working and writing job applications, I was offered a job at a large pharmaceutical company. I will begin June 1st, and I am looking very much forward to it! Actually earning money again will be nice (and needed), there are so many things I would like to buy for the new apartment! Continue reading Update! and Rum Cake→
So very much has happened in the last 5 weeks. On February 7th I married the love of my life, on February 13th we moved in with my parents (temporarily, until May 1st) and on February 20th I quit my job. In the span of two weeks, my entire life turned upside down, and I am very happy about it. I am thrilled to be married, I am thankful to my parents for letting us stay with them until our new appartment is ready and quitting my job was the right decision, however hard it was to come to the conclusion. I will probably cover the moving story and perhaps the job story in a different post, but for now, lets talk about the wedding! (and the cake).

2014 was an amazing year in many ways – I spend time on 3 continents, in 6 different countries (bringing me up to a total of 5 continents and 32 countries), saw St. Basils Cathedral in Moscow (a childhood dream, can anyone remember this landmark from the original SimCity?), travelled with the transsiberian Railway Continue reading Happy New Year→
The whole full-time job thing is really wrecking havoc with my blog schedule and my baking rutine. Besides the job, I have just been to Chile for ten days (lovely, lovely country, and the Dulce de Leche…! wow!) and the wedding planning is getting serious!
The weather has been so lovely the last couple of days, and if the meteorological institute is right, it will be even better in the upcoming pentecoast weekend! So what better time could there be to make your own ice cream? I have an ice cream maker bowl for my kitchenaid, and I absolutely adore it, but since it has been living in Kristian’s bookcase for a couple of months Continue reading Lemon Curd Ice Cream (No machine needed)→
My fingers are itching. They want to log onto my amazon account, and purchase cookbooks. Which, according to my bank account, is probably a bad idea. Also according to my bookshelves (a.k.a. the livingroom floor). And probably also a bad idea according to Kristian, who seems to think that more than a hundred cookbooks should be enough for a 27-year old (however, I might be able to pursuade him to get a chinese one, does anyone have a recommendation?).
So, instead of impulse-shopping cookbooks, let me look at one I already own! Today I review Sugarbaby by the amazing Gesine Bullock-Prado.
