Barbaresco snaps

It actually does, and its called barabresco, located one hour from the city of Turin, in the piedmont region in Italy, where the slow food movement was born and people…

chocolate chip cookies

If you ask my opinion, when it comes to cookies nothing can go wrong with a simple chocolate chip cookie. Its simply the king in the cookie world, it’s one of those cookies that anyone in the ages 1-99 absolutely loves. They are sweet, good, buttery filled with chunks of dark chocolate and hazelnuts, plus…

Destination: Heiligenhafen, Germany

Heiligenhafen took me by surprise. I had no expectations of the small coastal town in northern Germany at all. we would just spend 20 hours in the town, because the day after we would catch the ferry to Denmark. Its a place I  would like to visit again, it had it all that you want…

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Autumn, or fall as some people call it, is the do over of the year, the new year of the year. Or at least for me it is. I have always loved the autumn, and I think it has to do with something more than the fact that I love rain, lit candles and thick…
