SAFFRON THUMBPRINT COOKIES

In the middle of the craziest weeks of the year I think I’ve managed to attract the flu. I woke up with angry throat and when I walked up the stairs to the third floor to my statistics-lab my heart was beating like I had run a marathon. Not good at all. So right now…

CARROT AND HALLOUMI PATTIES (VEG)

Hi there, is Wednesday again and today I’m posting from a slightly different part of Sweden. I’m currently sitting on the floor of a hotel-room in Kalmar, a small town in the south-east of Sweden, after eating my third Christmas-table in the same amount of days.  The city is small but really cosy and all the…

CIDER CHICKEN w/ TARRAGON AND APPLE

Oh guys, Dublin was great (no surprise there). It’s funny how you can fall in love with a city over and over again and every time you visit you find new things to love. I’ve had four days of shopping, pub crawling, walking and loads of great food. This time we stayed at the Gresham…

CHOCOLATE OVERNIGHT OATS w/ SPICY ORANGE RAISINS

Considering I present myself as completely mad about food I’m pretty low maintenance when it comes to what I put in my body on a daily basis. I prefer something rather healthy that keep my blood sugar levels under control and it’s nice if it tastes good but that’s pretty much it. Today I’ve managed to squeeze in two…

AUTUMNAL PORK AND CHANTERELLE STEW

I´ve had such a great week this week. Since one of my new courses is online-based I suddenly (with some planning) have so much more time on my hands. I’ve been to the hockey, meeting up with friends and tomorrow I have a lunch-date that will include ramen. Yum! I´m also preparing to leave Sweden next…

APPLE HARVEST CAKE w/ CARDAMOM AND LEMON

Oh well Hello there! It really feels like its been ages since I sat down to write a new recipe. You can probably guess what’s been keeping me away from my computer. Exams. The past few weeks have been the dreaded pre-exam weeks where I go into zombie-mode in my PJ-bottoms just flipping pages after…

TEX MEX BRUNCH EGGS

This weekend I participated in a ‘race’ called Äppelloppet or ‘the apple run’ arranged by local merchandisers. I can’t say I ran that much, or to be honest, not a single step was taken in a running motion – my back doesn’t really allow such fast movements so I decided to walk instead. And I’m…

HEARTY CHICKEN AND PASTA SOUP

Every time fall knocks on the door I get the sudden urge to bundle up in my sofa with layers and layers of blankets, tea and popcorn to watch series. I barely touched my Netflix account in the summertime but the last couple of days I’ve been binge watching pretty much everything. I finished The…

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…
