We hadn’t put in a lot of detailed planning when boarded the plane to Lisbon. I mean, I had turned the pages of my Lonely Planet guidebook and there were places that I wanted to go to as well as places friends and family had recommended.

As always when I travel, Happy Cow had given me a first impression of my vegan options besides supermarkets. I had made a list of restaurants that were somewhat close to our apartment and packed a few bars just in case. Did I end up needing them? Continue reading Alicioustravels: Vegan Lisbon

I love carrot cake more than any other cake. Our relationship started in 2003 during my first visit to New Zealand.

…and I was invited to last week’s presentation. Did I go? Of course I did! Continue reading Aliciouslife: The new IKEA catalogue is in!
Woop-woop! Here is the post you’ve been waiting for since “Cooking with Sonnentor” went online two weeks ago. I proudly present Aladin’s banana chocolate soufflé from the amazing “Würz dich um die Welt” (“Spice your way around the world”) workshop hosted by Sonnentor which I attended in July.
