dark chocolate zucchini cake

its july and we’re harvesting zucchinis now, daily. and even though i already freezed zucchini dishes like ratatouille, zucchini tomatoe sauce, grated zucchini’s for future zucchini cakes and even though i have some glasses in the basement with italian zucchini antipasti, i end up writing messages to friends nearby, asking if they would love to pick up some zucchini’s at our house. i remember that last year, i also harvested some zucchini’s from the field, but this year is almost a bit crazy.

Bergsteigen mit Kindern 1/2017

Jedem Anfang wohnt ein Zauber inne. Unsere Kinder haben dieses Frühjahr begonnen, ausgewählte Bergtouren, aus eigener Kraft zu bewältigen. Soll heißen: Schluss mit Tragen bzw. nur noch in absoluten Ausnahmefällen. Die Kraxen für die Kinder haben wir gleich zuhause gelassen. Die Sorge, dass wir dadurch nur noch klitze-kleine Spaziergänge in den Bergen erleben könnten, hat sich auf zauberhafte Weise nicht bestätigt. Vielmehr haben wir an den letzten beiden Wochenenden richtig schöne Bergtouren mit den Kindern erleben dürfen. Eine davon möchten wir Euch hier näher vorstellen: Read More

apple-rhubarb cake

its the beginning of march and the first signs of spring just showed.we were checking on our rhubarb plants, but couldn’t see anything yet.fingers crossed, that they pop up soon.last year we harvested quiete a lot and beside making rhubarb juice or compote, i cutted the rhubarb in little squares and freezed it in little portions.and just a few days ago i still saw 2 little bags of frozen rhubarb in our freezer and totally felt like i need that spring taste.now.good, that one of my daughters wanted to bake with me a couple of days later and asked me to make apple cake instead of the usual banana cake/bread i’m making a lot. maybe too much? so i agreed on apple cake and sneaked some rhubarb into it as well.she didn’t mind.and i just went for my basic banana-bread recipe and varied a little bit with the ingredients from there.my daughter collected the tiny little baking forms i once bought for their play-kitchen and was all happy about the mini apple-rhubarb cakes.but enough said about our baking morning.here’s the recipe: Read More

Splitboarding – first impressions of this season (2016/2017)

Hi there. It’s been a while that I wrote a post on our website. The reason to participate the blog of my wife was to report about one of my biggest passions: Splitboarding. Related to that is the subject of compatibility. Working, earning money, working on new professional perspectives, being a family, go travelling, having friends and keep them, follow individual passions and, indeed, blogging about some of it, if there is some time left.
