Glutenfree Chocolate Gugelhupf


I don’t know why, but recently I’ve been hooked on gugelhupf.

My daughter is gluten sensitive, that we recognize not as a sickness, and definitely not as a tragedy, but rather as a gift. If this is the biggest problem that my kids are faced with in life, so be it. I’ll accept it, and be happy that there are no bigger problems. This is what I teach my girls as well.

UJB | Closely Inspired by Plants

I haven’t shown you guys my plants in a while! The last time you saw them was in the fall, but since then not a lot has happened with them. They moved back into the living room and hibernated until winter broke its spell. They got some water, but no extra minerals. I started paying attention to them again last weekend, trimmed what had to be trimmed, repotted them and started adding plant food for the first time this year!
