DIY – pumkin muesli bars

Vegetables and muesli? Sounds strange, but tastes better than you can image.

While autumn leaves cover the pathways and the weather gets more stormy, we rediscovered the pleasure and gusto of  a pumpkin. This orange coloured vegetable is so multifarious: used for cooking, used for baking, used for crafting and much more.

We tried our old muesli bar recipe in an autumn-like way.

Ingredients:

200g oats

60g flour

60g apple sauce

50g agave nectar

50g honey

50 pecan nuts

 

You just have to mix flour with muesli and add apple sauce, agave nectar and honey. Give the mixture on a baking tray and push it in the oven (170°C) for about 20 minutes. Cut it in pieces und enjoy!

Cranberries – red, sourly and so fruity!

Everyone should know them. They are so delicious, so red and just so good: cranberries. They are not just for decoration or scenery. Known for their health benefits and ripping tartness we love them in everything – in marmalade, in dips and sauces, in cake and desserts. But especially in muesli!

Already the American Indians enjoyed the cranberries in similar ways to our traditions nowadays: dried and sweetened. The red fruits in our muesli are sweetened with apple sirup, what perfectly fits to walnuts, apple pieces and hazelnuts.

Cranberries usually reach their peak in October – that´s the best time of the year to buy them. You can also freeze them for a several years, so you can enjoy them in due season.

DIY: a mymuesli-couch

Couch: a long upholstered piece of furniture for serveral people to sit on – this is the definition of the Oxford Dictonary. Remembering that definition and surrunded by umpteen mueslis we started a mission: Let´s construct a sofa out of muesli-tubes!

 

With this idea in mind we had considerations, accurate measurements and professional discussions. It was a piece of hard work, but now we are pround and love our new selfmade (!) couch. It´s perfect for drinking a cup of coffee, talking about the world of muesli or the latest news!

You need: 120 empty muesli-tubes, a stapler and many tacker-needles, a wooden board, 2 seat cushions and patience.

DIY – beautiful colored windsock

Summer is quickly passing by and probably you have some things you want to do before autum. Our all-time favorite: having a barbecue in the garden while a tepid late summer-evening. A friend of yours is playing gituar, some girls are giggeling and the trees are draped with beautiful colored paper-windsocks.

The instruction for these windsocks is quiet easy and fun!

1. Cut the paper to the needed length. Glue the paper onto the can.

2. Cut another paper into smaller decorative pieces and glue them also onto the can, as you like it.

3. Punch a small hole at the bottom and string twine to hang the windsock.

4. Then cut the wrapping paper into pieces with different length. Glue the pieces onto the inside of the can.

5. Finished!

It´s Teatime!

A delicious cup of tea and some canapé in the afternoon – we don´t need anything more for being happy. Today we´ve made two different sandwiches. One with eggs, cress and creme fraiche and the other with salmon, cream cheese and dill. And on top of that we´ve created scones with white chocolate and strawberry jam. After 2 minutes the dishes were empty, it was just too heavenly.

All 3 recipes are easy-peasy in the making – come and join us!

 

Ingredients for 8 white chocolate-scones:

• 75 g Butter

• 250 g flour

• 1 parcel baking powder

• 2 tbsp brown sugar

• 100 g white chocolate

• 150 ml milk

• milk to spread the buns

• brown sugar to sprinkle

• baking paper

Preparation:

1. Heat the oven to 220C/425F/Gas 7. Put a baking paper on a baking sheet.

2.  Mix together the flour, the baking powder and the butter with your hands. Stir in the sugar and then the milk to get a soft dough. Cut the chocolate in small pieces and mix it in the dough.

3. Turn on to a floured work surface and knead very lightly. Form small buns. Brush the tops of the scones with the milk and some brown sugar.

4. Bake for 10-12 minutes until well risen and golden.

 

 

Ingerdients for the two different sandwiches:

• 4 eggs

• 100g Creme fraiche

• 1-2 tsp Worcestershiresauce

• salt

• black pepper

• 1 patch cress

• 125 g cream cheese

• 1 tbsp finely chopped dill

• 3 slices pumpernickel or whole grain bread

• 150 g smoked salmon

• 4 slices toast

 

Preparation for the smoked salmon sandwich:

1. Stir the pepper and cream cheese. Add a thin layer of the cream cheese mixture onto the three slices of bread.

2. Top with a layer of smoked salmon and spread some dill. Place the remaining bread slice on top of the salmon. Again top with a layer of smoked salmon and some dill. Place the last bread slice on top, with the cream cheese side to the bottom

3. Cut into pieces.

Preparation for the cress-egg-sandwich:

1. Hard boil the eggs, rinsing with cold water when they are done.

2. While the eggs are still warm, peel them and mash them with the creme fraiche and some salt. Stir the cress into the egg-mixture. Place the egg mixture onto two slices of toast and top it with the remaining two slices.

3. Remove the crusts and slice the sandwich two times.

Ice tea, ice tea, ice tea – we cannot get enough!

Our best tip for warm summer days: homemade ice tea! No matter what time of the day, we love ice tea with breakfast, after lunch or as a refreshment in the afternoon.

 

But how do I make really tasty ice tea? Actually it´s very easy and there´s (almost) no way to have it go wrong. First of all you can choose your favourite tea as a base. We recommend using loose biological tea-leaves for a particularly better flavour. In addition, it is of-course helpful having some ice cubes in the freezer. To personalize the tea you can use every fruit or spice you want – set you creativity free.

 

Also, did you know that ice tea was “invented” by a fortunate coincidence? In 1904 Richard Blechynden wanted to show the guests of a trade fair how tasty and good his black tea was. But the heat of the summer was a big problem, so he decided to cool down his tea with some metal tubes. And it was a big success – people loved this iced tea!

 

While there are so many different variations of ice tea we have collected some of our favourite recipes for you.

 

Peachy Ruby

There is one thing we are absolutely certain of: An icetea does not get any fruitier than this!

Just fill the hot water in a bottle with the tea mixture and put it in the fridge for at least one hour. Put some slices of a peach in the glass and add ice cubes – done!

 

 

Herbal Lemonade

Actually this drink is not an ice tea but at least just as tasty as the other recipes.

Replace half of the tea water with mineral water and add some fresh mint leaves and pieces of lemon. Put it in the fridge and enjoy!

 

 

Sencha On Ice

Mango and Orange remind us of our last trip to spain.

Infuse the tea leaves with hot water and place it in the fridge for at least one hour. Add ice cubes, pieces of a mango and orange and taste the summer!
