CHEATERS PRETZEL BITES w/ CHOCOLATE DIPPING SAUCE

With me having a degree and some working experience in the pastry-field one could suspect that I have a sweet tooth. But no, I’m a savory girl (except when it comes to After Eights, never leave me alone with a box. I tell you, both you and me will regret it later). But recently I’ve discovered…

TURMERIC ROASTED CAULIFLOWER w/ DATES AND ALMONDS

I had such big plans for this weekend accompanied by a to-do list of the longer kind. And it went so well to start with. Monday was one of those super-productive ways and I woke up on Tuesday feeling like a boss. Then I got a minor headache at my lecture, and to be honest,…

SALAD w/ ROASTED PLUMS & SAVORY GRANOLA

I’m so incredible fortuned to having the upbringing I’ve had. Not only having an amazing family but also growing up far on the countryside far away from pollution, concrete and city-life. Sure, I hated it to bits as a teenager stuck on an island with a ferry that sometimes got canceled because of wind. But…

BLACK FOREST BROWNIE

Someone asked me how it felt to know that a lot of strangers read my blog, people I’ve never met in real life and I can’t say I had a good answer to that question. Firstly, all of you leave such sweet comments that make my day every time (can’t really have  bad day anymore) so I…

QUINOA RISOTTO w/ CHANTERELLES AND POMEGRANATE

You know that morning you step outside the door and meet the first chilly breeze of the season? This morning was THAT morning. The first morning of autumn and I was a bit too exited. To me autumn is the best. It’s change in the air and I could do whatever I want with the new…

LOUISIANA STYLE PORK STEW

To be honest, I’ve been feeling a bit down this week. I guess it’s the stress of starting school that caught up on me, the teachers really went all out this semester with assignments, quizzes and cases. One evening this week, when I got home, exhausted from a especially hard day I really made this to cheer me up;…

MERGUEZ, BELL PEPPER & ONION PASTA

Today my summer officially ends and I will be back in school from now on. To be honest, I’m in a serious struggle to go back to everyday life. It is hard to go back to sitting down to concentrate and listen when I’ve spent the whole summer on my feet, and the fact that…

CLASSIC CRÈME BRÛLÉE w/ A POMEGRANATE TWIST

Happy last-Friday-of-August everyone! I can’t believe that it’s almost September. This summer have flow by faster than ever, but I guess thats good. It means that I have been busy living the high life and not counting days as I tend to do in November. The weather here is amazing right now and I think…

THE NO-FUSS CHOCOLATE BLISS BALLS

This week seems to be the week of new beginnings – the summer holidays are ending, school is starting and everyday life gets back to, yeah well, everyday life. Thankfully my university decided to give us another week off and I couldn’t be happier. It gives me a chance to catch up with my ginormous to-do list that…

LAVENDER, APRICOT & HONEY STOVETOP GRANOLA

Looking out my window right now I see clearly how autumn is just around the corner – the leaves softly started to change color, the winds have gone chilly and everywhere I look I see fruit-trees with so much fruit on them it looks like they are going to break at any second. I’m such an…

SMULTRONSTÄLLEN – LUSTFYLLT

I mentioned the expression ‘smultronställen’ here for the first time and it must be one of the most beautiful words I know. Directly translated it would be ‘places for wild strawberries’ but it’s used in the meaning of places where you can find calmness and stillness. Places you cherish and carry with you in your…

BLUEBERRY AND SEA BUCKTHORN COCONUT CRUMBLE

  Today I experienced the worst round of golf in history. We left our home early, it was a bit chilly but the sun was shining and everything was great. We entered the golf course and teed off. Then autumn came to town. Hard. The rain poured down horizontally and there was true nordic winds that felt…
