Inside, outside...

Cooler temperatures, rainy days and eggs that need to be used up are some of the reasons I'm baking more again. Then again, I love to bake and don't really need a reason for it. ;-)
A batch of "chocolate cherry rocks". Pretty healthy as far as cookies go, they are made with whole wheat flour, rolled oats and dried cherries. (Which I didn't have on hand and used dried cranberries.) Delicious!!
Kuehlere Temperaturen, regnerische Tage und Eier die verbraucht werden muessen fuehren dazu, dass ich wieder mehr backe. Wobei um ehrlich zu sein, backe ich so oder so sehr gerne und oft. ;-)
Dieses Plaetzchen heissen "chocolate cherry rocks" und was Plaetzchen angeht, sind sie nicht total ungesund. Vollkornmehl, Haferflocken und getrocknete Kirschen sind ein paar der Zutaten - wobei ich statt Kirschen Cranberries genommen habe. Lecker!
 Whole wheat & seed low carb bread. I had to buy a new bread maker (guess I wore the other one out) and this recipe came with it. Very tasty bread I must say.
Vollkorn Koernerbrot. Ich musste mir eine neue Brotbackmaschine kaufen (die alte habe ich zu Tode gearbeitet) und dieses Rezept war dabei. Schmeckt sehr gut!
 Lots of spiderwebs everywhere. Since we've been plagued by little white aphids here (they even made the new, it's that bad) I'm leaving them up if they are not in my way.They do catch a lot of those little buggers...
Spinnenweben haengen momentan ueberall. Nachdem wir zu Zeit unwahrscheinlich viele kleine weisse Fliegen ueberall haben (war sogar in den Nachrichten, ist 'ne richtige Plage) lasse ich die Weben haengen. Sollen die kleinen Fliegen ruhig fangen!
 The butterfly bushes are hanging low after a night of much needed rain.
Die Schmetterlingsbuesche haengen in den Teich nachdem wir gestern Nacht viel Regen hatten.
 Pretty blooms.

 A while back I cut the Clematis pretty much down to the ground. Part of me hated doing it, but the side facing the porch was pretty much dead looking. It is already coming back and hopefully will be better than ever in the spring.
Vor ein paar Wochen habe ich die Clematis total zurueckgeschnitten. Gerne habe ich es nicht gemacht, aber die Seite die auf der Terasse war, war braun und mehr tot als lebending. Die Clematis faengt schon wieder an zu wachsen und ich hoffe, dass sie im Fruehling wieder so schoen blueht wie die Jahre zuvor.
 Morning Glory's are popping up everywhere...

    You've been a busy little baker and your garden is blooming nicely. I'm jealous of your cooler temps.
