  • Christmas Smoothie

    Christmas Smoothie

    Merry Christmas to all of you, who like me, celebrate today on Christmas Eve! I hope you all have a lovely day, no matter how you to spend it. The only snow we’ll see this year is in the freezer which needs defrosting… so here’s a Christmas smoothie with frozen banana, strawberries, pear, beetroot powder […] Read more »


  • Red Pancakes

    Red Pancakes

    Trying hard to get in the mood for Christmas here. Colour does the trick for me, so here is a stack of red banana pancakes, nearly high enough to match the Christmas tree. I’ve used a powder for colouring for the first time, a beetroot powder from @reneevoltaire. I simply added 2 tsp of powder […] Read more »


  • Berry Porridge

    Berry Porridge

    I’ve been skipping a few breakfasts, but this porridge reminded me why it’s so much nicer to start the day with a nourishing, warming bowl. It’s 1 dl rye flakes and 0,5 dl shredded coconut cooked with 2 dl water, 1 dl of mixed blueberries and raspberries and a pinch of salt. Served with granola […] Read more »


  • Chocolate Porridge

    Chocolate Porridge

    I’ve seen lots of people posting chocolate oats, and imagined it must be heavenly to start the day like that. So this weekend I tried making my rye porridge with a generous amount of cacao, served it with my Chunky Monkey Granola (see recipe earlier in my feed), frothed oat milk and a drizzle of […] Read more »


  • Tri-Coloured Pancakes

    Tri-Coloured Pancakes

    I need more colour in my life! Enter – the tri-coloured banana pancakes. I don’t have any fancy food colourers like pitaya or blue spirulina (yet, that is) so I worked with blueberries and raspberries. And in the ones without added colour, I put chocolate chips. Just because I can, you know?.2 ripe bananas2 dl […] Read more »


  • Berry Tahini Porridge

    Berry Tahini Porridge

    Well, the title pretty much sums it up. I made rye porridge, but added 2 tbsp of sunflower seeds before cooking it, along with a handful of frozen blueberries and raspberries. I served it with a large dollop of tahini, blueberries and redcurrants (still have a box left in the freezer from this summer!), and […] Read more »


  • Apple Cinnamon Porridge

    Apple Cinnamon Porridge

    When you can’t eat apple pie for breakfast (because you finished it last night), this is what you make instead. Dice an apple and sauté it in a pan with cinnamon and some water. Simmer until the apple starts to soften, and add more water if the pan goes dry. When the apple is sot, […] Read more »


  • Pancake Platter

    Pancake Platter

    Once you pop, you can’t stop. Remember that slogan? Yep, that’s me in a nutshell. Now it’s platters this and platters that. I’m testing both my own and my children’s patience with these elaborate presentations. But I love doing it! I always need a creative outlet, and right now this is my favourite. Here are […] Read more »


  • Plum Marmelade

    Plum Marmelade

    I’ve spent most of the day in the car, driving from the East to the West coast of Sweden. It’s been a very gray and rainy day, and I miss summer terribly. This photo cheered me up, it’s the plum marmelade I made from fruit from our own tree, in the last days of summer. […] Read more »


  • Porridge with Kiwi & Granola

    Porridge with Kiwi & Granola

    It wasn’t until last year that I learnt to like porridge. Or let’s put another way – I realised that the toppings were everything! With fruits, nut butter and spices, that porridge got a whole lot better. . And now I’m going to the next level – eating it with granola and frothed oat milk. […] Read more »
