Baby Birthday Carrot Cake

12 November 2011 The carrot cake recipe I made for the boy’s birthday came from a dm baby bonus brochure and was suggested as an ideal 1st birthday cake as it is low in allergens, containing neither eggs nor milk nor butter. Since I can’t eat wheat, I also replaced the wholewheat flour from the […] Read more…

Happy 1st Birthday

10 November 2011 I can’t believe my baby is one year old already! The German grandparents came over from the west of Germany to celebrate with us, and we’ll be flying over to Edinburgh next week for a couple of days where we’ll have a party with his friends. I’d baked him a carrot cake from […] Read more…

{Berlin} Pergamon Panorama

8 November 2011 My parents are visiting for the boy’s first birthday this week, and I took the chance to go and do some hard core museum visiting without him. The current special exhibition at the Pergamon Museum on Museum Island is a ‘best of’ before they close for renovation end of next year, and […] Read more…

Happy Hallowe’en

31 October 2011 We had a fun Hallowe’en today. In the morning we carved a pumpkin with the face of the Currywurstmuseum mascot, which we later took round to them as a gift, along with a couple of the cheese & curry Hallowe’en muffins I’d made for dinner as we’d never eat them all ourselves. […] Read more…

Muffin Baking Marathon

28 October 2011 As a follow on from yesterday’s muffin post, I thought I’d mention the 120 muffins we baked for our wedding two years ago (BIG help from my mother and sister)! We ended up with five different flavours: banana, blueberry, orange, coconut and chocolate & beetroot. As with any baking in our house, […] Read more…

{Berlin} Schloss Charlottenburg

16 October 2011 I’ve not had a lot of time to blog this week, as w’ve had yet more visitors. This time it was my sister and her boyfriend, making the family complete, at least from my side. It was fun to go out sightseeing together, but also showing them “our city” started to make […] Read more…

{Berlin} Ritter Sport Bunte Schoko Welt

10 October 2011 Today marks the beginning of Chocolate Week in the UK, so I thought it would be an appropriate time to check out the Ritter Sport Bunte Schoko Welt in Berlin. Granted, it’s leaning more towards commercial tourist attraction than museum, but as well as their shop and cafe they also have a […] Read more…

A day at the races

2 October 2011 There’s a horse and cart racing track south of where we live, and we had won a family ticket from the Currywurst Museum, which was hosting the races there today. Luckily there’s a direct subway connection from where we live, so it wasn’t as hard to get to as it first appeared […] Read more…

Museum-y Birthday

29 September 2011 So, I had a great birthday yesterday. The husband gave me an iPad (best husband ever or what?) and my mum cooked a really lovely meal for everyone in the evening. But the best part of the day had to be my visit to the Currywurst Museum, which was my brother’s gift […] Read more…

Back from our epic road trip

26 September 2011 We’re back in Berlin after our epic road trip, which went much smoother than I expected. Zagreb was interesting, especially the Museum of Broken Relationships*, although our accommodation was a bit of a shock – we thought we were renting a three bedroom apartment, but it turns out we were renting a three […] Read more…
