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!

Masha and superfruits

When I was a child, I would only eat sweets for breakfast, e.g. croissants or cinnamon buns with chocolate spread. My parents were desperate to have me eating a more healthy breakfast but were at a loss for how to convince me for some years.

However, as I got older, I struggled with my daily breakfast routine because I didn´t want to eat as much sugar. So I stopped buying croissants and heavily processed cereals, and started looking for more healthy alternatives instead. And that’s when I found mymuesli: really delicious breakfast cereals with carefully selected organic ingredients and a fraction of the sugar content of conventional cereals.

Whilst every mymuesli mix is special and delicious, I have one absolute favourite muesli: The new SUPERFRUIT muesli. It tastes extremely fruity and it is packed with delicious berries, fruits and nuts, complete with their alleged health benefits.

Pomegranate, for example, is said to be filled with more antioxidants than many other superfruits and it tastes wonderfully sweet and sour at the same time.

Blackcurrent, rasberries, strawberries and cranberries also have a range of well-documented health and beauty benefits.

Healthy eating has taken us by storm. Because the old adage We are what we eat is undeniably true. With that in mind, I finally found my favourite supremely tastey muesli-mix. What’s yours?

Give them a try: Crunchy honey granola and 8 friends – our new muesli bases

We spend a lot of time searching and trying new ingredients for our mymuesli mixer. When we got the taste of crunchy honey granola and 8 friends we all had the same judgement: these two bases should be in our mixer and on your breakfast table!

You like your muesli with an edge? Then you must try the granola base with oat flakes baked in honey. While baking, the flakes get a golden glaze and honey gives them a delicate sweetness.

Our graphic designer Lena loves the combination of granola with some seeds and crunchy coconut flakes. For the perfect mix she adds sweet cranberries, tart raspberries and cherries.

 

 

For those who like it more natural and rustic we recommend 8 friends – our second new base. Besides oat flakes and tried and true PurPur wheat you can find the retro grains Emmer and Kamut, classic rye, barley, wheat, and spelt flakes. Mixed with sourly fruits, nuts and seeds this base is perfect for every grain fan. Arne sweetens the 8 friends with dates, apple pieces and strawberries. To get still more bite he adds almonds, oat crunchy and some cornflakes.

By the way: You can add as much ingerdients as you want – until the tube is filled. I am curious what makes its way in your mix. Please give us a hint and write your favourite mix in the comments.

Summertime is great!

“Summertime is great, it´s the best time of the year“ – “Oh, why´s that so?“ – “Because I can eat ice cream every day!“ That´s what my little brother told me, when I asked him how he likes summer.

And I think he is right. Summer means eating a lot of ice cream – propably every day at every time. But it also means wearing nice dresses, driving to nice lakes and chilling with you friends, going out to the most insane festivals and so much more.

 

 

So for me the summer is the best time of the year not only because of ice cream. I love the warmer days and the fun-filled nights. I love that people are getting more and more friendly and the dreary of the winter is forgotten. I love all these boutiques with their cute little things, which I would like to buy them all. I love sitting around a campfire with friends, doing some BBQ and talking about everything and nothing. I love jumping into a lake in the middle of nowhere in my brand new bikini and listening to some music while warming up because the water was a little bit colder than you thought. And meanwhile for a little snack the mymuesli2gos are really perfect. For a picknick, at a festival, at camping or just for a lovely summer breakfast.

 

There are so many things I love about the summer – with no end in sight. So tell me what you love about the summer ✹

DIY – muesli bar with berries

I love DIY and all the cute, sweet und funny things you can do with your own two hands. But not only the handcrafts are lovely, my grandmother’s self-made jams are also fantastic. To see how some ingredients „melt“ together to a delicious meal is a great thing. Especially if it tastes as good as the cereal bars we made today.

For me it was important to make things as easy as possible. Because – to be honest – I can be a bit clumsy in baking. But I found a recipe which inspired not only me but the whole team.

 

Ingredients for the berry bar

400g berry muesli

120g flour

120g apple sauce

120g agave nectar

100g honey

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!
