I need to take a break... you might have guessed by now..:-(

The final weeks before my (first) wedding are full with all sorts of things but not much that involves cooking or baking. Therefore, after neglecting this blog for so long (and feeling really bad about it), I thought I rather let you know why. And I promise to come back on a regular basis once all the excitement is over. Hoping that you will come back, too...

PS: This isn`t me - I just took the photo of a dear friend who got married recently.

PPS: Just to clarify - I have no intentions of marrying someone else after the "first" wedding, it´s just that we´ll be celebrating twice in two different countries..;-)

Yes, my blog looks good in this!

Folks, I'm feeling a tiny little bit ashamed to put up another post full of self-praise instead of showing wonderful creations coming out of my kitchen. However, let's face it, there isn't much coming out of my kitchen at the moment apart from sandwiches and the odd soup for a bit more sustenance. Considering these culinary deprived times, I'm all the more happy to announce that I've won one of the host's awards at this February's DoesMyBlogLookGoodInThis!

My thanks go to host Jennifer of Bake or Break - I feel very honoured to get this much sought-after badge! Check out her round-up to see more droolworthy pics. Click here to see all the pictures submitted this month. If you'd like to participate next time, Sabra of CookbookCatchall not only is the overall winner but also the host of the March edition.

And in case you're getting a sudden craving for soft pretzels, here's how to make them!

I am inspiring!

Sounds weird, I know - but I can't help it, I'm so happy about winning the February edition of Margot's food photography contest over at Coffee&Vanilla! Especially with two other very worthy contestants, I wasn't at all sure that I would make it.

Thanks to everyone who voted for me! It's really appreciated! Sometimes, not everything in life works out as planned so getting such a wonderful and totally unexpected surprise is just great!

Thanks to Margot for nominating me and, of course, organizing the event in the first place! Have a look who the nominees for the March edition are and start voting!

PS: Sorry for putting this up so late - instead of myself, I'm blaming a laptop that drives me crazy and life in general...
