  1. Ulrike, you crack me up…I am giggling over here at all of these things and the George Clooney bit is just too much fun. I am guessing 1 is true because you are probably watching reruns and getting your ironing done because you are one organized chick, that I know! The other two I don’t know…but I do know you do brew a lot of coffee over there at home, so I am guessing that 3 is correct. That would leave 2 to be the incorrect one…that’s my guess. How’d I do, friend? Still way jealous of that kugelhopf of yours…gorgeous photo.

  2. Do you, perhaps, like George Clooney? lol! It was so much fun reading your answers, Ulrike. The one about your pets is hilarious. :D
    I’m guessing #3 is the lie, just because. :)

  3. haha… tts hilarious! and up to this day.. i still envision gus’s kitchen.. a dream definitely. You should read ‘The Sharper your knife, the less you cry’ by Kathleen Flinn. It’s about the author’s journey through Paris as she embarked on course in Le Cordon Bleu cooking school. A very good read!

    In fact, I’m hooked on the book right this moment!
