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
This summer was one of the best I can remember. From July on it was hot. Really hot. Temperatures above 30°C were the norm and I loved every moment of it. Only when it came to cooking and baking did I momentarily wish for air-conditioning. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Lemon-poppyseed cake
When I was five years old we moved from an apartment in a town of 50,000 to a house with garden to a village of a few hundred. It’s the place where my maternal grandfather was born, called Wald which – aptly – translates to “forest”. Continue reading Aliciouslife: Picking wild blackberries
I love carrot cake more than any other cake. Our relationship started in 2003 during my first visit to New Zealand. Perfectly moist carrot cakes – usually with delicious lemon icing – were everywhere: in cafés, rest stops and excursion boats. While my first bite may have been timid, my second was surely greedy.

…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!

A lot of you have asked me how it was and how my body reacted to a sudden onset of cold turkey, so here is my recap of Sugar-Free July. Continue reading Aliciouslife: Sugar-Free July – Recap
One of many things that make living in Vienna so convenient is the fact that it takes you less than 2 hours to get to the mountains. And I mean mountains, not rolling hills. Real mountains to hike, climb and ski. Over the years, Rax has evolved as the favourite mountain of choice for a relaxing day trip. Continue reading Alicioustravels: Rax – our favourite local mountain
Last week another highlight of my budding blogger-carreer took place: I was invited to a vegan cooking class with Sonnentor. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Cooking with Sonnentor
For our recent stay at Achensee we decided to rent an apartment to not only save money but also for maximum flexibility in regards to eating. It’s not always easy to find vegan food in rural Austria and I didn’t want to take any chances (also, I may be the reason the word “hangry” was originally invented).
