A new home – a new place & yummy treats // + Playlist



*

It’s almost been a whole month since I moved cities. A new home, new places
and paths, new cafés and meadows, a whole new feeling.
It can be hard to feel comfortable when everything is new and you don’t
know so many people that can help you feeling welcome.
So for me it was all about using autumn’s gifts and turn them into
yummy treats. I took the last carrots with me from the garden and they
became the most delicious carrot cake with walnuts and hazelnuts. 

I also enjoyed the last beetroot and apples from the garden
before my aunt and dad treated me with some more fruits
and vegetables from their garden. Pears, plums, apples, more beetroot and 
more carrots, pumpkin, garlic, walnuts, apple juice, cabbage turnip
and black radish. 

So every morning could start with something delicious
and on other days I prepared a quiche with pumpkin and mushrooms for
lunch or a danish with plums as a treat as well as an apple cake 
for my brothers birthday with sweet cinnamon crumble. 
Other mornings were very slow and perfect for over night oats and porridge
such as this warming one with roasted bananas and apples.

But it was also about finding my own green places. 
A meadow that became mine, a river and stones that became mine, a picnic place that
became mine, 
cats I meet daily on the streets or that I watched being cozy on the window sill in other homes. 
Willow slowly started to make this home into his too after
having trouble with the noises, brightness and new scents. 
Now he has his place by the window and on the blanket
if he doesn’t go back to bed with me.

1 tablespoon of lemon peel
The dough
+ Mix the soft butter with the powdered sugar and also add in the vanilla and salt

+ Add sugar and the flour and almonds later

+ make a dough out of it and roll it
 out until it’s almost the size of your tarte dish

+ Let it rest for one hour in your fridge

+ bake it at 180 degrees for about 15 minutes
( mine got a little too dark ;) ) and let it cool
The Filling
+ Simply mix all the ingredients in a pot on a 
medium high heat

everything with your spoon until it starts to get thicker
