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! [Read more…]
Yesterday the Ridikül that I was also a guest on aired. I couldn’t wait for the show, I was curious to see what it would be like to watch it (after all, I already knew how it felt to be on it)! I watched the whole thing this morning, because we don’t have a TV, and my afternoon are largely about the kids. It was a really great experience! But I won’t write a summary about it, and would rather encourage you to watch it!

I’m really proud that experienced guests also compliment my food, who have ate across half of the world, at some pretty good restaurants. So I’m pretty proud of myself…Or I was. I never thought I had to go to a cooking course. But then as it happened, one of my children is gluten sensitive and I got scared about what I was going to cook?! Google immediately showed me the way. in the past two years I’ve cooked and baked quite a few times at the Miele Cooking School. These lessons helped me a lot in helping me better my daughter’s gastronomic world, and give her the chance to enjoy a full life while continuing to put bread, hamburger, or challah on the table. After that point I closed the cooking school question in my life. [Read more…]
