Blueberry & Choc Chip muffins

and here we go with my third muffins recipe for this week, Blueberry & Choc Chip Muffins!

Simply delicious and soft like always...this time with coloured papers, which were difficult to find in basel;-)

I'm happy to receive your muffin orders and deliver them to your tea afternoon parties, my muffins ordering website will be launched soon!
Have a nice weekend...

A jazz night in basel...

how convenient it is to live up in Schützengraben, especially when you fancy some good jazz concert, only what I have to do is go downhill and I am at one of the most famous jazz club of Switzerland - bird's eyes jazz club!

The atmosphere is relaxed and the space is very small to make it more familiar. When the saxophone starts to play, it seems you are in a different world, far away from basel - somewhere in New Orleans!

One point to make is to introduce a bit more savoury snacks - I am sick of  the usual boring peanuts served with drinks, what about extend it to olives, just an idea;-)

Thank you for the good idea Virginia & Isabella!

use your kellogs cornflakes!

if you want to be more creative with your kellogs cornflakes instead of just eating them for breakfast, what you can do is to crunch them into a soft raspberry sauce and cover with whipped cream, follow the process a second time until you get the sauce on top which you will need to cover again with a final touch of cream ...yummy.

You can indulge your guests into a sensual dessert they will never inspirator this time was Nigella!

too many strawberries...

if you have too many strawberries in your fridge and you don't know what to do with them, I can only suggest to make a creamy smooth strawberries mousse...

just make sure to keep some strawberries aside for decoration at the end...

Enjoy the sweetness!

A "schönen " afternoon in Schönenbuch!

is there anything better than spending a whole afternoon with your friends and their kids in the wonderful landscape of bloomy Schönenbuch?

Of course after the long and tiring walk you can stop at the restaurant  "zum Bad" to enjoy traditional swiss cuisine, but we had even the better option to go upstair the restaurant to our friend's house Krish and Fred, which has been designed from the famous architects "Herzog & de Meuron" - a place of relaxion, inspiration and peace of the senses, thank you Krish and Fred for a wonderful afternoon...
