Kerstin  Mom of 4, flight attendant. Best ingredients for cooking : love and generosity ❤️

http://www.offwhiteblog.com/

Potato or sweetpotato?
I love them both!
This is the last pic I made before I left home to jump on my flight to Hongkong (where I have safely arrived by the way)
It's not healthy, it's not homemade, it's not sponsored, but it's what we had home delivered by @deliveroo_de before it was time to say goodbye.
Some might think that I am some kind of a supermom who provides her family with homecooked healthy wholefoods from morning till late night while working full time, doing laundry, packing and unpacking suitcases, meeting friends and doing grocery shopping.
The truth is: I try to, but somehow my days aren't long enough (and somehow my boys aren't so much into healthy food as we would like them to be). When I take off the six hours sleep that I need, I have only 18 left to do what needs to be done...and guess what: sometimes it's not enough.
I love cooking, but I love cooking when I have the time to and when it's not stressful. It wouldn't taste nice anyway.
This is why we love eating out or why we get food delivered on our doorstep from time to time.
And between placing the order and the door bells ringing, there is plenty of time for doing the laundry and other fun stuff 😂.
So: no supermom (hope, you aren't disappointed), but a happy mom, sending you lots of love from Hongkong, where I am going to meet Bettina @bettinas_kitchen and Christine @conscious_cooking in less than ten hours.

Happy #avomonday to all of you....but especially to Bettina @bettinas_kitchen who had this wonderful idea, to Christine @conscious_cooking who is waiting for both of us in Hongkong, to Didi @bijzonderspaans who often reminds me (when I run late with my contribution), to my girls Maria @foodbymaria and Bianca @fitness_bianca who featured two of my pasta dishes yesterday and to Sara @bentoparty for reposting my popsicle bento.

IT'S PORRIDGE WEATHER!
As summer seems to have a little break and all the plants and flowers get the water they desperately need, it's time for a slow cooked porridge with grated almonds, cinnamon, orange peel, agave syrup, cocoa nibs and a hint of cardamom, topped with fresh local berries.
I'm off to Hongkong tonight where I will meet my two amazing friends Christine @conscious_cooking and Bettina @bettinas_kitchen !
Cannot wait harvesting and weeding at the @rooftop_republic with them....and having days filled with fun ♥️!

I will cut a long story short, as it's almost time for bed:
This bowl is my party contribution for a very special friend, Nici @mari.linni !
We follow each other for a very long time now, I've seen how she developed her very smart and personal style, a mix of travel, food and lifestyle....but it's her enchanting smile that won't let you go ♥️.
She is always cheerful, loves her two dogs, red lipstick, anything jeans and is addicted to berries, just like me!
She asked us to celebrate her #5k and I am running sooo late joining in that it's almost time for a 10k party!
Dear Nici, thank you so much for lighting our days with your smile and for being such a warmhearted friend.
Wishing you all the best and hope you will like this berrilicious coconut bowl ♥️!

Back home, back to cooking.
As there is no one home but the dog and me, I keep it simple and finish my leftover homemade pesto (doesn't look very vibrant anymore, but still tastes nice)....perfect with fettuccine and some fresh basil 🌿 leafs.
As I am packing suitcases for my trip to Hongkong and also for our family holidays in Tuscany, there is plenty of time to reflect the weekend and all the other wonderful things that are happening to me at the moment.
GRATITUDE is what I feel and I wish that you all have many things to be grateful for.
HAPPY SUNDAY 🌿!

Last pic in my plain and beautiful hotel room in Hamburg before we had to leave.
It's been an amazing weekend and Larissa and I enjoyed it so much to meet, connect, cook, talk and eat with new wonderful IG ladies.
Thank you so much @pure_brands @beyondpetfood @purina @vletkochschule @sidehamburg , we had the best time!

Just imagine to have the same food as your pet! How much fun is that?
Well, we didn't really eat and test #beyonddogfood .....we used the same ingredients and created a menu for this amazing @beyondpetfood event at @vletkochschule in Hamburg along with lifestyle and fashion bloggers and the amazing hosts of @purina and @pure_brands .
Unfortunately I ate up my veggie curry and forgot to take a pic (but you all know my curries anyway)
So I am posting this tasty creamy pea soup created by @volle_lotte and the sweetpotato-carrot cake with cinnamon nicecream made by Larissa @larissabrachvogel and her team.
We are now boarding our plane to Munich. I will catch up with your beautiful posts and comments as soon as I am home.
Have a relaxed sunday ☀️!

A close up of my intensely pink and perfectly imperfect dahlias, dedicated to all my friends who share my passion for flowers and nature!
I will tag some of you and hope they will brighten your day 🌸!
It's raining cats and dogs in Hamburg, but we enjoy meeting friends before we head to our @beyondpetfood event this afternoon.

I am so excited to fly to Hamburg tomorrow together with my daughter Larissa. We are invited by @purina to cook with lifestyle bloggers to feature and introduce their brand new dog food #purinabeyond @beyondpetfood
We were asked to create recipes with the same ingredients that are in the 🐶 food, which was to much fun to say no!
So this will be the dessert tomorrow : sweetpotato-carrot-oat cake, which will be served with cinnamon nana nice cream and orange mascarpone for everyone non vegan.
I will keep you posted! Have a beautiful weekend!
