Are you all as excited for the upcoming Easter as I am? While winter doesn’t seem to finally go away, the clock is still ticking, and it’s high time to get it on with some spring-time yummy things. As always, I am happy to share with you guys what I’ve been up to lately.

I am also proud to announce that from now on my work can also be seen in magazines by BURDA Media, including their beautiful magazine “Sweet Dreams”!
