Gimme some color!

Last day of Easter holidays, last post about Easter activities 🙂

My most favorite thing to do during Easter is coloring eggs! It’s the perfect opportunity to feel like a child again and have colored fingers for days 😛

In Austria, we do so called “egg tapping” with our Easter eggs. It’s a fun game where you take an egg and tap it to the egg of your competitor – pointy side to pointy side, round side to round side – trying to break the other’s egg. When there’s not an even number of pointy or round sides left, pointy taps against round. And the egg that survives unbroken the longest is the winner!

The more people, the more fun because you can tap with so many eggs 🙂

What you need and what you do…

You need Easter egg colors and some bowls - I used Tupperware boxes, they are the perfect size and the color doesn't leave any stains.

Juhuu!

Juhuu!

One of the most Swedish Christmas traditions is to bake pepparkakor – ginger bread cookies 🙂 For me, those are the best cookies to bake because I get to use all my great cookie cutters… Continue reading

Christmas without Cookies isn’t Christmas, Part 2

Christmas is coming closer and closer, the cookies are getting more and more… I’ll be so fed up with them afterwards, good that it’s a whole year until next Christmas 😛

Here comes a recipe that I got from a dear, old friend – also known as Linzerkipferl 😉 – already quite some years ago. Back then I of course didn’t write it up or so, thinking that this is so easy I’ll sure remember it. Not. Neither did I remember the exact ingredients, apart from chocolate, nor how much I would need of what. And to top that I didn’t remember the name either. Continue reading
