zusammenkochen – kochen war schon immer meine Leidenschaft. Ich liebe gutes Essen. In Deutschland angekommen, wollte ich endlich wieder einmal Qabuli (Reis mit Lammfleisch und Rosinen) zubereiten, oder Bamya (Okras), oder Mantu (Teigtaschen). All die wunderbaren Köstlichkeiten, die ich zu Hause in Afghanistan gegessen habe, als ich noch mit meiner Familie zusammenlebte.

Doch woher die Zutaten nehmen, den richtigen Reis, das passende Gemüse, die nötigen Gewürze? Und wie genau sollte ich das Essen zubereiten? Manche Rezepte hatte ich einfach vergessen.

Es hat eine Weile gedauert, bis ich mich zurechtgefunden habe. Inzwischen habe ich eine schöne Sammlung von Rezepten aus Afghanistan, die ich auch hier in Deutschland wunderbar zubereiten kann. Manche Gerichte, die ich inzwischen koche, sind gar nicht afghanisch, aber sie erinnern mich an meine Heimat. Und dann habe ich Gerichte entdeckt, die für mich ganz neu waren, aber inzwischen zu meinem Lieblingsessen gehören.

Auf meinem Blog findest Du alles, was Du brauchst, um Dich, Deine Familie und Deine Freunde mit gutem Essen zu verwöhnen. Du findest:

  • Typisch afghanische Rezepte, die sich mit den Zutaten aus dem deutschen Supermarkt gut kochen lassen.
  • Typisch deutsche Rezepte, die überraschend an die afghanische Küche erinnern und zeigen, dass es manchmal gar nicht so verschieden ist, was die Menschen gerne essen.
  • Einfache Rezepte für alle, die noch nicht so gut kochen können und es trotzdem versuchen möchten.
  • Schnelle Rezepte für die, die nach der Schule oder nach der Arbeit müde, aber hungrig sind, und mit wenig Zeitaufwand etwas Gutes kochen möchten.
  • Preisgünstige Rezepte, damit das Geld bis zum Monatsende reicht, ohne auf gutes Essen verzichten zu müssen.
  • Gesunde Rezepte, denn Tiefkühlpizza und Döner vom Imbiss nebenan sind lecker zwischendurch, sollten aber nicht zum Hauptbestandteil der Ernährung werden.

Hey friends, here I am again with something which kept me going on so far. I’ve always managed to find things that inspire me. No matter how creative you are, there will always be days when you’ll need inspiration. Inspiration means to make someone want to do something, to move them toward trying to do better, to be better. People who are inspired are more open to new experiences and are more absorbed in their tasks. If you’re feeling unmotivated, stuck or lost, these are ways to get inspired every day!

Here are few small things I would suggest to get some inspiration:

  • Take a walk outside practice mindfulness, and lose track of time for a while.
  • Read books and magazines 
  • Listen to music
  • Connect with people
  • Teach someone to do something and tap into your potential as a leader.
  • Read blogs written by people who have overcome adversity
  • Ask someone you love what they consider to be the most important thing they’ve ever learned.
  • Go for shopping
  • Take a camera outside and photograph everything that looks beautiful to you.

I just want to add something. I am really new here, but you guys have been my inspiration to continue! You are all amazing and so supportive! Thank you So much for following this journey with me.

We all need inspiration, no matter who we are or what we do. So what about you? Where and how you find your inspiration? Let me know in the comment box. You never know who might get inspired by your words.

Thank you so much for reading! Have a wonderful day and always stay inspired 🙂



Have you heard someone recently, who wants to be a child again?

Of course every stage of our life is important, but childhood is an unforgettable time in our life. One has no worries, no tremendous workload, no caring about what others might think. Free from all these extra-added problems in life.

Beside that, as a child we spend our time mostly with our parents than in later life. They take care of us every minute and devote themselves to us. If we are ill we have a person to look after us. If we fight with other friends, they are there to give us a piece of advice.There is always someone who we can turn to…

I really miss the time when I just turned five. It was a beautiful summer day, the sun was just rising. Because of the very hot weather, I was sleeping on our rooftop. My mom came walking the stairs to wake me up for school, but as always I insisted to sleep for few more minutes & said the very thing I would say every morning. “Mama please, it’s early yet let me sleep for 10 more minutes and then I will get up”, she kept insisting that I am getting late, but I would keep my eyes shut until she would come & give me a kiss on my forehead.

After a while I woke up, wash my face with water and a small piece of soap in our bathroom & then came inside our only room where we had to sit, eat and sleep. I had a piece of bread fried in oil and also a glass of milk with a lot of sugar for my breakfast already prepared by my mom. Soon after having my breakfast I would take my bag which my Dad bought me from a very famous shop in Jalalabad. I would start walking to school. It was about 20-minute walk from our house, which was my daily routine in the mornings. In the evenings, I would go out & play with other children of my age. Creating houses from sand & imagining it was our palace we were going to live in.

Life was so simple, I had no responsibilities. All I knew was playing, eating & sleeping. There are a lot of more reasons why I want to be a child again.Defining them would take a lot of space & time now…

Would you also like to be a child again?? I am really interested in your opinions. Please comment below & let me know what you think. Thanks. 🙂
