Summer Appetizer

It's been a while since I last favoured you with a recipe of mine.

To be honest: I didn't really cook at all in the last two months. No, making a salad doesn't count! As for baking - I was introduced to the art of making "real American chocolate chip cookies" by my uncle (or whatever you call your mother's cousin). Now I know the secret about making the perfect gooey cookies... but more of that another time.

The thing I wanted to show you today is a super simple and very delicious creation me and my friend did a few months ago: a summer appetizer!

You'll need:
some dark whole wheat bread
a plum
feta cheese
cured ham
salt and pepper
balsamic cream

How to:
Cut the bread into mouth-friendly bites and toast them until crisp. Put some arugula on each piece of bread and add a slice of the plum. Then add some cured ham and the chopped feta cheese. Season with salt and pepper and add the balsamic cream. Now serve! 

Technically, this recipe doesn't include any cooking too.... but who cares!? It's delicious! And easy! Preparation time isn't more than 5min. 
The perfect food for lazy people like me ;)

love and kisses,

Starry Denim shorts

Many people asked me what I liked best in and about the Golden State. My answer was always the same: I liked each and every place we have been to, although they were completely different. Maybe the diversity is what fascinated me that much.

One thing I never mentioned when answering that question but that came to mind every time was the fact that the weather was perfect! Warm, sunny, summery... it couldn't have been better. And warm weather automatically includes shorts for me. 

Imagine being able to wear shorts every day - what a perfect world it would be ;) In Switzerland, you can only dream about weather conditions like that... 

I fell in love with these starry Denim shorts of Lucky Brand Jeans. Aren't they lovely?! And I wore them for the 4th of July - kind of obvious, right?!

Back from California

Oh my dear readers! I hope you had a great time while I was gone! I certrainly did :) 

I don't want to bore you with stories about my holidays... and certainly, I don't wanna show you all the 2500 pictures we took of the beautiful places we visited in California. (Minus one point on my summer check list!)

I will soon enough feed you with recipes, fashion, beauty and other pictures again... but for now this short post will have to do.

love you guys!
