Here some kitchen inspiration… If only I were a rich girl…I’ll need too many houses to fit all these lovely kitchens!

There is no big story behind this recipe. I saw a picture in Pinterest, and I had to try it. Since I love beer, it just couldn’t be bad, and it turns out, it wasn’t. Another dish to bring to my weekly Girls Night and enjoy while watching Germany’s Next Top Model.
I followed this recipe from The Beeroness. I had to do some changes because I couldn’t find stout beer at my supermarket so I used brown ale and some sesame seeds and chives for garnish. I’m sure It would have been lot better with the right kind of beer, this woman knows her stuff, but well, improvising it’s kinda my thing 😉

I’m back to work, and it was time that I did some diy post. This one is a different one, no more fashion accessories for now.
I got a sewing machine for christmas and I was thinking all the time what could I do with it, since I’m learning and I’m still not able to do some Haute Couture. My Sis told me about this tutorial so I had to do it. My version it’s a little bit different since I didn’t sew legs to it, but pretty much it is the same. Took me some time to find fabrics that I liked but well, I think I’ve chosen quite well didn’t I?
These two are going to someone very special that hasn’t been born yet (just a few days/hours to go), and I hope she likes them 😀
Draw a raindrop on the newspaper paper. Pin the template to the velvet fabric and cut the raindrop shape out of the fabric leaving approx. 1cm seam allowance. Cut also the raindrop shape out of the polka dot fabric.
Put the two right sides pieces together and sew, leaving an opening at the bottom for the stuffing. Turn right side in and stuff the pillow with batting. Hand stitch it closed. Sew on the eyes and mouth and you’re finished!

After a couple of weeks of hard work, here I am again. When I got rid of all my work stress I realized that I’ve catched a pretty big cold. So…what do I do when I need to get well soon? I cook me a very warm soup. Onion soup is even more perfect for the task, because onions help a lot with the congestion. That’s what I’ll be eating for the next few days, hoping to get well very soon 🙂
Ingredients for 4 servings
In a large pot melt butter and add the thin sliced onions over medium high heat. Stir and cook onions for about 15 minutes or until really soft and tender. Add the stock cube, smash it and mix it with the onions, add 1/2 liter water and stir breaking up any browned bits on the bottom of pan. Pour in the rest of the water and bring to a boil, then reduce heat and let simmer for 10 – 15 minutes.
Meanwhile turn your oven on to grill and prepare oven safe bowl. Ladle the soup into bowls, break an egg inside the soup, divide the toasted baguette slices (4 or 5 each) among the bowls, top each bowl with cheese. Carefully place in oven and grill until cheese is melted and bubbly.
Be careful when serving, the bowls would be very hot, warn your guests about this too! 😉
