BERLIN, HERE I COME

hey guys. i’m laying in bed dreading packing before we get on a plane to berlin. i’ve been gone over a month now, and my suitcase is starting to look like a frightening massacre. berlin is my last stop before i head home, i can’t believe the adventure is almost over. honestly, this trip has been the best thing that’s happened to me in a long time. (and more on this flower field i visited soon!)

you all are the best when it comes to helping plan my trips. what’s to see in berlin? museums, restaurants, bars…do tell! i haven’t been to berlin in about 4 years now. we are staying in the kreuzberg area and i’m not familiar with the area. thanks so much!!

ps, i have TWO more spots in my berlin social media class!

AMSTERDAM AIRBNB

1

good morning! we leave amsterdam tomorrow and head to berlin. i will most definitely be sad to leave this wonderful place. i have a few more highlights from the trip that i am still putting together but here’s a peek into the second airbnb that i’m staying in. i really do search high and low on that site before a trip, and i’ve been so pleased with both options! (see my first place here)

this apartment had a major perk…it was overlooking the canal and was on the top level. it had a beautiful view, it was quiet and decorated with lots of style. we could sit and have wine at the dining room table and look down at the boats and people passing by.

SCALLOPED POTATOES / ALMOND BREEZE

DSC_2922

my love for potatoes is no secret, i’ll take them pretty much any time of the day and in any form. i love the idea of serving these scalloped potatoes at a brunch with friends, you could prepare them the night before, pop them in the oven in the morning and you’re set. we love this recipe from gimme some oven and we were inspired to swap the traditional cream for almond breeze instead which has a subtle nutty flavor and paired really well with the nutmeg. enjoy!

HOW TO MAKE THE SCALLOPED POTATOES: Thinly slice 6 Yukon potatoes (we used a mandolin for an even consistent cut). In a saucepan melt butter on medium heat, add in 3 tablespoons all purpose flour and whisk until smooth. Leave in 1 bay leaf and begin to add the almond breeze while constantly stirring with a whisk. Add 1 thinly sliced garlic clove, 1 teaspoon nutmeg powder, 2 teaspoons fresh thyme sprigs. Mix in 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese and 1 cup vegetable stock and bring the mixture to a simmer to thicken. Salt and pepper to taste. Remove bay leaf and remove almond milk mixture from heat.
