Burek with Veggie Filling

Hello everybody,

Ten minutes away from my apartment you can buy the best burek in Vienna. That's at least what the Austrian daily Der Standard claims, and they may be right, because it's really, really good!
However, as I can't always walk over there to buy one I decided to try it myself and make two kinds of vegetarian burek (or pita): one with potato filling, the other one with soy "ground meat" filling. And it was totally worth the try! Both kinds turned out really good! Not exactly as good, as the greasy, supertasty burek at Thaliastraße, but almost that delicious. Here comes the recipe!

I got nominated...even twice

Hello folks,

thanks to lovely Lizzy from "La vie de Lizzy" and Jennifer from "Everythingthensome" I got nominated for the Liebster Award. That's a blogger award, where bloggers nominate little blogs they like. :) If you get nominated you have to answer eleven questions the other blogger asked you (cite the blogger), think of eleven new questions and nominate eleven (new) blogs, with less than 200 followers, you think deserve the award.
As I got nominated twice I decided to answer all 22 questions, but nominate only 11 new blogger for the next Liebster Award.

You received mail!

Hello you lovely people,

I got a new hobby!! :)
As some of you might already have noticed, I am kind of "retro-oriented" in some respects. For example I love the fashion of the 1920s to 1950s (oh so elegant!), I really like old movies and sometimes I even host colour-themed dinner parties where I oblige my friends to turn up in retro clothes. :D

Another (now old-fashioned) thing I really like is writing and receiving postcards. It's just a beloved tradition of mine, when I'm on vacation, to search for the perfect postcard for somebody and then to sit on the beach or on a nice square and take the time to write a few sentences. There is nothing I like less than receiving a stupid vacation SMS (although those are probably outdated already too?) from somebody, telling you how awesome the beach is and how great the food tastes, and you know that 10 other persons received the same message. Unfortunately fewer and fewer people seem to share my opinion on this topic, which made me fear to receive no postcards at all in the nearer future.

How To Make Super Sweet And Super Tasty Semolina Slices

Happy Monday everyone,

how did you spend your weekends? Hopefully good? I had a very lovely one including some cozy wine drinking at a friends' apartment, a trip to the Feschmarkt at Ottakringer Brauerei and a wonderful afternoon dinner with delicious tabbouleh and yummy cake. 
I also want to share a sweet delight today: semolina slices with apple sauce. Those are a perfect dessert as they are very tasty with their coat of breadcrumbs and coconut plus they are easy to make. :)

Black and White and Yellow


on Monday, after a lovely breakfast date, David and I decided to celebrate the beautiful, sunny November weather. We chose to go for a little walk in the park right around the corner and were surprised to find the whole park covered in yellow autumn leaves! Extremely beautiful! We simply had to take the chance to snap a few photos... ;)

DIY Embroidered Greeting Cards

Hello everybody,

today I wanna share one of my favourite DIY-projects I've been up to lately: embroidered greeting cards. Although it is no half an hour project to make one of those cards and it will take you some time, I think the result is definitely worth the effort. In addition there are no limits to creativity concerning the selection of your motive. :)

Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers

Hello everybody,

today I want to share a vegetarian recipe for stuffed peppers. Personally I think that the cold autumn weather virtually screams for more colour on the plate, which is why I went for red and orange bell peppers.

Baby it's Cold Outside

Hello everybody,

although it's not really winter yet, it's aready freezing cold here in Austria. Luckily, there are fireplaces one can cosy up to! My mum has one in her house and every time I visit her now, I sit in front of it, read a book, drink a cup of tea, or simply watch the flames like hypnotized. :) 
What do you do to warm up?
