I have to admit the bread is awesome, love the crust and so easy to put it all together. Wonderful flavor and I will add sunflower seeds or walnuts next time. I have never used my wonderful pot for baking,first time and what a reward! here is the link :

My new cake recepie

 I added two extra apples and leftover Hazelnut flour
It has a wonderful aroma and yes as always I could not wait and tasted it still slightly here it is

I love how smoth this cake is. The apple  pieces are still juicy and the hazelnut flower makes it a little crunchy.

Breakfast,lunch and dinner

My awesome husband made Blueberry pancakes with fresh blueberries and blueberry syrup and eggs for breakfast.
For dinner I made my Lentil soup-Linseneintopf and was having it for almost the rest of the week.
 I had tryed a new recepie and ended up with a mess and a wonderful Chocolte-Hazelnut -Cake. It was awesome ,nevermind I had put the cinnamon into my dough and not the filling!

Finally new pictures from last weekend

 Close up of the sheer with stars.

I had to work on a few things last weekend and  I started cleaning and then got lost in doing laundry and reorganizing .At the end I had made these curtains but my house was a bigger mess then when I had started.
