The photos from my recent weekly wanderings around Frankfurt ;-)
My recipe for carrot cake pancakes! Grain/gluten free, dairy free and sugar free. Super easy to make, and so yummy. Be warned, you might get hooked after one sampling.
To make them, here is the recipe.

Jetting off to...ITALY!!!!!!!!!!!! (The first place I ever spent time in Europe, back in 2008. Lighting the fire inside of me and, I feel, leading to my eventual move here four years ago).
As you can see above....we were excited :-D
Favorite mural in Frankfurt, reminding me of the photo shoot my friend, Dali did of being out and about in the city a couple summers ago. To rewind briefly for a moment, a handful of the photos from that shoot ;-)
For the full photo shoot we did, here is the link :-D
And the link to our other photo shoot, in the small food market hall of Frankfurt.
And Dali, the photographer, here is the link to his travel blog. More than worthy of a check out! The tagline: travel adventures of an office mouse. You can read about his ventures through Italy, Prague, and more. His writing witty, engaging and fun.
Sugar Mama, my favorite café in Frankfurt. They have the BEST fruit crumble. An awesome tuna sandwich. Their brownies are moist and fudgy. Their cookies chewy and delish. Their carrot cake, to die for. And the atmosphere, when not too crowded, is cozy and inviting.

Rubbing the boars nose during my recent adventures in Florence, Italy (and Siena) with Judith. Supposedly if you rub his nose, it means you'll return to Florence someday. I have done so on each trip there, and keep continuing to return. So there must be something to it ;-)
Such an AWESOME trip. Gosh, Siena is so romantic, narrow and cobbled, magical, just stunning. And Florence, well, its always been a favorite of mine, so returning once more and wandering the streets I know was just the best.
For LOADS of photos, food recommendations funny travel stories and more, all from Italy last week with Judith, here is the link to part one. And the link to part two.
Get Glowing Power Muffins. I know they look questionable. Almost like birdseed in the shape of muffins, eh? But was shocked to find they taste awesome. Surprisingly moist and sweet. Filling. SO healthy. Easy to make. Really good.
Find the recipe here.
And, another recent pancake variation. Blueberry Lavender Poppyseed. DELISH!!! Grain/gluten free, dairy free and sugar free. Likely to become another favorite brunching dish once you've given it a go. Having to regularly contain myself from eating them daily haha.
Here is how to make them.
