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…

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…

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…

NO BAKE STRAWBERRY/ ELDERFLOWER FROZEN CHEESECAKE

I’ve started my morning with watching/laughing at all the cyclists that are doing ‘Vätternrundan’ (pronounced vet-turn-rund-an) today in the pouring rain. They ride by just outside our window. Vätternrundan is the one of the largest bicycle-races in the world – it’s 300 km long around the shoreline of Lake Vättern and actually have no winners….

SWEDISH KLADDKAKA w/ LEMON AND BEURRE NOISETTE

It have been the most amazing weather here the last week, 17 degrees and sunny. And also, yesterday was a bank holiday (or as we call them – red day) so the weekend suddenly felt twice as long. I spent most of my day off in my garden, planting and sunbathing. Somehow I managed to get…

SWEDISH CHOCOLATE-RASPBERRY BISKVIER

Finally Friyay! I woke up feeling so tired today. We celebrated a birthday yesterday at a local pub and then ended the night with birthday-cake and coffee. And that coffee, it never bothers me to drink coffee late, its just something you get used to when working late nights in a kitchen. But, this was probably the strongest…

SWEDISH KLADDKAKA

So it’s finally Easter. To me Easter symbolize the beginning of spring after too many long and dark winter months. I can’t say me and my family really celebrate Easter – we give the kids Easter-eggs filled with candy, we eat sill and lamb-roast dinner but really nothing more. But still, we all get together at…

BLOOD ORANGE TIRAMISU

Finally Fri-yay! I really have a great weekend to look forward to – Saturday me and my best friend is going out for Mexican food and beers and I actually have the house for myself today (this never happens) so I’m going all in with my favorite movie and some great food. All in the…

SWEDISH SOCKERKAKA

Today its -9 degrees outside and the sun is shining bright and all of the rabbits on my backyard is laying down (we have like a whole family living there together with a pheasant and some hedgehogs), sunbathing their tummies. This is Swedish winter when it is at its best. However, I watch the sun…

SHROVE TUESDAY – THE SWEDISH SEMLOR

So, today its once again one strange Swedish tradition to celebrate; Shrove Tuesday! Or as we swedes call it; Fettisdagen. For some of you this day is actually known for eating pancakes, or as the “international pancake day”. But here in Sweden (and in most scandinavian countries, we eat a semla instead). This wonderful cream…

LOVE-YUMMIES or KÄRLEKSMUMS

So, were almost done with January. Its been a great month for me – I guess having some time off is great but I believe I feel better when having some daily routines. I’ve really gotten into yoga (once again) and I really can’t understand why I stopped. It makes a lot of difference in how…
