Happy Friday guys,

I finally have another Food Friday post for you today. I have been kind of undecided by what to share in terms of recipes. I have cooked a bunch of Crock Pot recipes but want to try out some more before posting my review. So in honor of the first big upcoming holiday I decided to make these fun Halloween inspired sugar cookies with royal icing. 

The reason I have decided to use royal icing for my cookies is that other than frosting it dries hard and doesn´t smear all over the other cookies. 

I have never worked with royal icing before. It wasn´t to hard but you definitely have to get adjusted to working with it and it´s also a time race as it starts to get hard the minute you stop stiring. I got a big package of white royal icing and colored it with Wilton Icing Color – these are my favorites. I bought a whole set including a ton of different colors. The colorful lines on the bats and smaller pumpkins are made of chocolate. I got different colored chocolate pens to draw on the cookies. And since it is made of chocolate is cool very quickly and doesn´t smear.

The sugar cookie recipe is from Rachel Parcell´s blog Pink Peonies and it is enough for plenty of cookies. It is enough to make about 6 to 7 batches. 

This is my Halloween contribution for this year. I wanted to make a really cool and spooky drink for you guys but just haven´t had the time to figure something out. But I will definitely have one for you next year. 

If you are decorating your sugar cookies like I did make sure to tag me on Instagram @madame_schischi. 

Have a great weekend you guys. See you on Monday.

Happy Friday you guys,

I am sharing another Food Friday blog post over here today including one of my favorite meals ever. Whether it is for breakfast as a snack or even for dinner. Having an avocado toast is not only a trendy but healthy choice.

I was first introduced to avocado´s visiting a befriended family in Florida about 12 years ago. Long before the hype started. They grew a huge avocado tree in their garden and made sure to eat one a day. The couple is from Guatemala and told us that besides a shot of tequila every day, avocado´s would benefit your health a lot. Maybe the tequila thing is wrong but avocado holds many health benefits. 

To name a few….

 – avocado´s are incredible nutritious

 – avocado´s are loaded with heart-health fatty acids

 – avocado´s are loaded with fiber

 – avocado´s are loaded with powerful antioxidants

Just to name a few. Here is the full article about this powerful nut. Yes, they belong to the family of nuts.

So for my favorite avocado toasts I made one with smoked salmon and one with scrambled eggs and mozzarella cheese. These are my favorite two combinations ever. 

In fact you could pair a lot more with your avocado like lentils or tomatoes if you like. The options are endless. 

Do you have a favorite combo for your avocado toast or aren´t you on the team??

Thanks for stopping by and have a nice weekend eveyone.

Buon Giorno,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

it´s been almost 5 weeeks since we are back from Lake Garda and I am finally coming around to write my last travel post in terms of this vacation. Read my Food Guide here and my Verona Travel Diary here. 

We checked-in in the afternoon and only hang out by the pool until it was time for dinner. After we dressed up we went down to the Peschiera city centre and had dinner at one of our favorite restaurants.

But you don´t have to be by the pool every day, there are plenty of acitivites you can do around the lake. I have rounded-up some activities we already did or planning for the next time.

What to do:

 – visit the surrounding cities (we already visited Garda, Lazise, Sirmione, Bardolino, Peschiera del Garda, Verona, Milan,

 – go to the market (there are local markets every day, our favorite one is on Thursday in Barodlino but we also visited the market in Garda on Friday and Peschiera del Garda on Monday)

 – play mini golf (we love to go play after dinner, also it isn´t as hot anymore)

 – shop ´till you drop (Affi has a huge shopping centre with different Italian stores, also shopping in Verona is great and every little city of course has its own shops)

 – bath in the Lake (there are places which don´t belong to the hotels everywhere)

 – go wine tasting (I always wanted to do 

 – visit the Gardaland theme park (I have been years ago and it has evolved so much, there are a ton of new rides so whether you are a rollercoaster junkie or you are visiting with your toddler there is lots of fun for everyone)

 – go on a ferry ride to another city

 – go to a dinner show (there are two dinner shows available – a Rock´n Roll dinner show and a Medieval Times dinner show)

 – rent a boat (only possible if you have a boat license, the lake is huge and the cities can also all be visited by boat so if you are fed up of riding your car give it a try)

 – go parasailing (I have done this years ago and for 50 Euro I would say it is totally affordable and you have the greatest view of the lake you will ever get, awesome experience)

 

This are some of my top recommendations if you want to do a little more than lying by the pool.

If you want to know more what to do feel free to mail me. 

Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.
