    Hot Cast Iron Skillet Herbed Bread with parmesan cheese

    This is a sponsored post I have always loved the idea of cast iron skillet bread. It looks very beautiful and I also love the idea of tasteful bread baking by itself in the oven. While I can do other things. Well almost by itself. Perfect savoury bread However, this cast iron skillet bread is as simple as it is tasty. And this bread looks wonderfully delicious in this cast iron skillet in Volcanic from Le Creuset. It’s the perfect size for our family of seven. (yikes) We also eat a lot of bread during the weekend. Except for coffee, there’s not a smell I love more than freshly made bread. I’m usually the…

  • Belgian waffles

    Belgian Waffles – The Scandinavian way

    Belgian Waffles, oh how I love thee. When I was a kid, Belgian Waffles were something you would get on festivals and fairs. Waffles in Sweden are typically heart shaped, thin and crisp. I used to dream about Belgian Waffles with Nutella. Thick, delicious Belgian Waffles. I didn’t get to eat a lot of them as you can hear. Therefore, I got myself a Belgian waffle iron. A quick snack However on school breaks, as we have in Sweden right now, my mum used to make Swedish Waffles. It’s simple, quick and I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like waffles. She would make a huge stack of them. I would hang out with…

  • Healthy breakfast to kickstart your morning

    What is healthy breakfast? I know that a lot of people have made it their New Year’s resolution to lead healthier lifestyles. I also know that keeping that promise can be difficult. A healthier you is a happier you. What I mean by that is that is that you have decide for yourself what a healthy life is. What do you like eating? I like a healthy breakfast. Healthy breakfast to me is a balanced start of the day. I want to fuel my body with what gives me energy and lasts until lunch. Because if I don’t that’s when I make really unhealthy choices. Like a little chocolate bar or a little candy to…

  • Plättar - thin Swedish pancakes

    Plättar – thin Swedish pancakes

    Plättar are thin Swedish pancakes and is Scandinavian equivalent to the American pancakes. However, in Sweden, it’s a popular afternoon snack as well. We call it Mellanmål, literally translated, in between meals. As a kid I loved them. But we didn’t have a skillet used for that purpose. Which means I had to eat them whenever I was at a Swedish friend’s house. Since plättar, thin Swedish pancakes are indeed a very Scandinavian thing. However, now I have one from Le Creuset, which I adore. It’s brilliant. I usually make them either for breakfast or served after I make an artichoke soup. And I’m yet to find a kid who doesn’t love them as much as…

  • Swedish pancakes for breakfast

    Swedish pancakes for breakfast

    Now, what’s so different about Swedish pancakes you might wonder? Well, first of all, there’s no sugar in the pancake batter at all. Secondly, they are a little bit thicker than the French crêpe. Like most Swedish foods they speak for themselves. No fuss, no muss, it’s what you serve, simple and enjoyable. Well, because this is me, there’s no such thing as simple. I love colours, textures and flavours! So to this simple, but yet pleasant pancake, I added Nutella, cashews, banana, raspberries and shredded coconut. The colouring comes from beetroot extract, but you can use food colouring. Or even spirulina powder for a green pancake. However, to tell you the truth,…

  • overnight bircher

    Overnight bircher with apples

    This overnight bircher with apples has become a typical breakfast in Sweden. It’s a cold, tart healthy and keeps you full. The best part is that it’s “cooked” overnight and ready for you to devour in the morning. The overnight bircher with apples is not as new as one might think. It was invited by the Swiss doctor Bircher, who tried to get his institutionalized patients to eat more raw fruit. Since a lot of people confuse Sweden with Switzerland, I now claim this recipe as Swedish. Easy does it This is truly one of my favourite recipes to make. I usually make a bigger batch that will last me the whole week. In my experience,…

  • Prickly pear smoothie bowl

    Prickly pear smoothie bowl

    Prickly pear smoothie bowl, have you tried it? If not, you really should. These beautiful little creations are not only gorgeous, but delicious. Such as prickly pear smoothie bowl. I got a few questions about prickly pears, when I posted on Instagram. Just like the cactus, prickly pears have little hairs on them, that can stick you. Although they are easily removed with a damp cloth. Prickly pears are ripe when they are yellow, dark pink or orange. It’s sweet, like a hybrid between watermelon and yellow kiwi. As you understand it’s a wonderful addition to your breakfast table. Like a prickly pear smoothie bowl. I also made jam from it, and it’s…

    American spirulina oat pancakes

    American spirulina oat pancakes, how do you like the sound of that? I have been a big fan of spirulina for a long time, way before it even got trendy. I like that it’s healthy and I adore the beautiful colour. This green and blue superfood is an alga, and just as little as one tablespoon a day can have major health benefits for you. You can read more about here. Spirulina has been called the most nutritious food on the planet. So you can understand why I wanted to introduce it to my kids. Now my kids love sushi, but peel of the Noori, because they simply can’t eat seaweed. Selling algae for breakfast proved a…

  • En omelett till frukost

    Frukost, bästa målet på dagen. När det finns tid att njuta! Jag älskar när helgen kommer och man kan ha långa frukostar med dem som betyder allra mest. Att få tid att sitta tillsammans och äta långsamt. Under min barnvecka är det mest jag som sitter länge. Men barnfria helger går det att njuta lite längre.Då hinner jag att dekorera och göra fint på frukostbordet. Jag blir så glad av att se ett fint upplagd mat. Det blir mer njutningsfullt på något sätt. Vad ska man göra för frukost då? Med alla sorts alleriger och matpreferenser kommer här några smarriga glutenfria och sockerfria alternativ på frukostbordet.  Carolines omelett Du behöver: 3-4 ägg 1 msk…

  • En glutenfri frukost

    Frukost med vänner är det bästa! Men vad gör man med alla dessa allergier som folk har? Jag har två väldigt nära vänner, varav en är allergiskt mot guten och den andra mot mjölk. Inte mot laktos utan mot mjölkprotein. Det innebär inget laktosfritt, utan på riktigt mjölkfritt. När vi började umgås var inte utbudet på marknaden sådär upphetsande. Jag har lite burit med mig den synen på allergivänlig kost. Att det är lite tråkig kost, man måste kompromissa alltför mycket för att det ska vara gott. Men efter att jag själv har upptäckt att jag inte mår speciellt bra av gluten, speciellt bröd har jag börjat hitta andra alternativ. Jag är inte glutenallergiker,…
