With temperatures of -15 degrees C the only thing I have on my mind – the tiny part that is still left unfrozen – is warmth. If you remember the story of Nature Boy and Flirty Flannel Girl you will know I am once again featuring my hottest attire this season!

Wishing you all a fantastic, prosperous, healthy and delicious 2016!

ButterscotchPudding-by MeetaKWolff-0004
It has been quite a very sweet month as December always is.

Several years ago when we lived in Leipzig we had a Christmas ritual.

We were a fairly large group of friends and the evening usually led to all sort of hilarious activities and memorable memories.

Christmas (in most Western countries) has got to be the sweetest and most decadent month of the year – a proper festival of sugary, fruity, chocolaty treats!
