How to make delicious Orange Rolls for fall….

Hi guys
there are several recipes which are created for different seasons. Here is one I want you to introduce today because I think it is perfect for fall and winter season.
Orange Rolls
They are pretty simple to make. A yeast dough with a  filling made from butter and orange with a simple cream cheese frosting.
Everyone is gonna love this. (My honey really does :))
So here we go:
 Start with the dough
Put 2 teasponns of yeast in a bowl with 2 cups of warm water and 1 teaspoon of sugar
Stir until the yeast is liquid. Let is set a few minutes.
Take a 1/2 cup of melted butter, six cups of flour, 1/3 cup of sugar, 2 teaspoons of salt, 2/3 cup of warm milk, 1 egg
Mix all together and cover it up with a hot towel or put it in the oven with low heat. 
The dough has to be double the size to move on.
Divide the dough into two pieces.
 Roll out the the dough and brush the orange-butter paste on.
For the paste:
Rib off the orangepeel of three oranges and stir it into 1 cup of melted butter
Put it on the dough before rolling and then cut it into little pieces. (It works pretty well with a thread)  Take a cupcake form for baking.
Leave it in the oven for about 15 to 20 minutes by 180 degrees.
For the frosting:
Mix the cream cheese. some sugar and some orange schalen.
Top it with some sprinkles for adding some color.

Let me know what you think about it !

Pumpkin Spice Latte…..

Hi guys

on off the sadest things (or maybe the only one) about fall is that I just can´t get out and get one of those delicious Pumpkin Spice Lattes which belong to fall season like booties and knitted cardigans, cause the nearest Starbucks is about 45 minutes away. This is why I tried out a few recipes to make my own yummy fall drink and this one is the closest to the original so here we go….
Ingredients:
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice and a little extra for the topping
1/4 teaspoon vanilla syrup
1/4 cup hot espresso
Sweetened whipped cream

Directions:
Combine the milk, pumpkin puree, sugar, pumpkin pie spice and
vanilla in a medium pot and heat it up. Whisk vigorously until the milk mixture is foamy –  about 30
seconds.

Pour the espresso into a large mug and add the milk. Top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice. 

Hope you are enjoying yours as much as I do.
Have a great day
Take care. See you. Love K.

Coffee Table Decoration Ideas…..

Hi guys

I always loved – and still do love hosting all kinds of events like a brunch, a dinner or just an afternoon coffee meeting. Last thing we had yesterday. I had my whole family over for coffee and of course for some delicious cake to show them the new house we are living now ( – for gods sake it is already done). I had been thinking a lot upfront about the table decoration and I decided to go with an outisde theme as we were sitting on the patio. As I had this nice coffee table cup and plate set I decided to got with the colors green and purple – an awesome combination I did never recognice -but these colors rock toghether.

So here we go – this is everything I used ( got the flowers and the lavender from the fields behind the house and our garden)
So first of all for the drinks – besides the regular coffee I had some refreshing sparkling water  with slices of lemon for this little lemon scent in the water and as an apperitiv for the guests after arriving an Jules Mumm with Acai flavor – a brasilian berry.

I made two cakes ( we were eight people – so I was afraid it wouldn´t be enoug to eat) – the small one was a sand cake and the other one has been a Pina Colada cake with pineapples and some rum. Yummy 🙂

I cut some fresh lavender from our garden to make the little bouquets for the plates.  

I hope you all had a nice weekend and sorry for posting so late today. Oops.
Take care. See you. Love K.

Bath Storage and my new bathroom

Hi guys
today I am showing you some great products to get organized in your bathroon and they also look very chic.
There are many different styles and types but I decided to go with those clear acrylic ones.
First of all I am showing you where I am storing my Make-Up products. I decided to go with this little containers because I already had matching bathroom cabinets so I did´nt want to get new drawers.  They have 3 Schubladen and little shiny silver knobs. I like them a lot and it fits a lot of stuff into them.  They quality is great – it is a thick and stabiles material.
They are available in 17 colors !! Ordered them from amazon.

The next thing I have to help me get organized is this lipstick case. It holds eight lipsticks – it doesn´t matter which shape they have – of any brand.
Had to get a few more than one because I have way more than eight lipsticks but that is okay for me.
Bought this type at the local drugstore. Here is a similar one from amazon.

Here are a few other organizing ideas I have used in my appartment earlier ….



I also purchased those bright petrol bathroom carptes. They match perfectly with the tiles. And I always like a good match 😉

This all took so long to pick out and decide which one to take and which one to leave. (Cause you can´t get everything or at least not at once)
Decorating and furnishing is a slow process (maybe not only for me) but in my opinion it is better to finish room by room otherwise you are gonna get crazy.
Think of a concept first. Choose the style and the colors you would like upfront and pick up some pieces you like to try out how they look. There is not so much difference in buying decoration stuff or clothing. Trust me.
Maybe I could have been quicker to get everything done but I rather spend time with my boyfriend than working in the house all by myself. (I think that´s totally understandable)
Although it takes a lot of time but when you are constant and patient you are gonna have a great place to live and of course the most important part – a place that feels home to you.
The next room I am going to finsh might be the living room.
Keep looking forward for more house updates and decoration ideas.
Take care. See you. Love K.
