What if...

...your doctor forbids you to bake...?!?! Really, he asked me "Your boyfriend, can't he cook and bake?" ... "Excuse me??!!!"

Ok, from the beginning: First of all, I apologize for being quiet over such a long time. But there were some things that had to be sorted out first and sometimes, you have to prioritize. We settled down in Zurich almost three weeks ago and guys, I liked Zurich before, but now, I am truly in love with this city! Each day I leave the house I see something new. I've already walked from our place all to the central station instead of taking the tram (Mauro's comment: "What?! Are you crazy?!" But you know, Mauro will not walk a step too much if he doesn't have to...).

Our new flat is so cute, I really feel at home. The only problem is that it is not as well lit as our old one which means I still try to figure out the best way to fotograph my food in order to get nice pictures... This turned out to be a tricky task because I don't have a professional camera... Most of the photos are too blurred because of the bad lighting and the flash light is also not a good idea most of the time... But I'm working on it.

The other rather big problem is the nasty strain injury on my right wrist. I guess the moving, yoga, baking, cooking and a lot of typing on the computer turned out to be a bit too much. I will have to give it time to really heal up in order to avoid a repetitive strain injury. But let me tell you, it's not easy... You know how much I love to cook and bake. Last weekend, Mauro and I made Flammkuchen, or rather, Mauro followed my instructions... It was annoying! Mauro actually did a great job but still, I wanted to do it myself! This must be what cold turkey feels like :-) No, seriously, I hope I'm back in the game as soon as christmas cookie season starts!

I hope I can still provide you with a few recipes and photos until then! So, keep in touch.

Zurich, Baby!

Hey guys!

I know I haven't been that chatty lately... But I have news to share with you! We're moving to Zurich! Actually, it's been quite a spur-of-the-moment thing. I know, I know, how can moving to Zurich be a spur-of-the-moment thing?! Well, Mauro and I have been discussing this option for quite some time and about a month or two ago, we decided to try and look for an affordable appartment in the city. Who would have thought that we get the first one we applied for?! We still can't believe it!

And there we go... the kitchen is almost packed. From next Saturday on, I will be a city-girl ;-)

Give me some time to get used to my new oven... I'll be back in a bit...
