    Mjuk rabarberkaka för fira rabarbern

    Vem gillar inte rabarber? Mjuk rabarberkaka är min favorit. Men det verkar som att alla har ett speciellt recept i sina gömmor. Jag ska prova dem alla! Det finns nämligen ingenting som talar om att våren har kommit som när rabarbern är redo att skördas. Välkomna den nya säsongen med mjuk rabarberkaka Basen i denna mjuka rabarberkaka är nästa densamma som i min nostalgiskt goda körsbärskaka. Jag har en liten pojke här hemma som bestämt påstår att han inte tycker om rabarber. Men denna rabarberkaka slinker minsann ner. Gärna med vaniljglas. Men det går jätte fint att äta precis så som den är. Det finns ingenting som talar om att våren har kommit…

    Bästa brunchen att bjuda på hemma

    Många gånger serveras den bästa brunchen hemma. Jag tycker personligen att brunch ute tenderar att vara överskattad. Dels kan man ta bort alla delar som man inte tycker om. (Om det nu finns sådana.) Ha koll på vad som är i det man äter. Men det viktigaste av allt. Samla alla man tycker om vid ett och samma bord. Jag är inte främmande för att köra knytis på brunchen. Men eftersom jag lever både för och på att skapa mat gör jag det mer än gärna. Men gör man inte det kan man dela upp det mellan sig. Någon kan ta med sig pålägg, dryck eller bär. På just denna brunchen är det…

  • When life calls for Tortano

    I love bread. I could live off good quality bread. Dip in olive oil and be done. If you are anything like me, you’ll love Greek Tortano. All the best flavours in one bread. You can almost smell it right? How to make Tortano The first time I made Tortano it was a complete mess. It ended up not being a wreath. But instead a big blob. Tasty perhaps, but a blob none the less. I have since made it many times. And it does taste better when baked properly. I will teach how to make it. So that you can get it right from the beginning. It’s all about the right ingridients…

    How to taste olive oil

    In this post, I’m going to guide you on how to taste olive oil. You may think olive oil is just olive oil, right? Actually, you couldn’t be more wrong.

To be able to bring you the best tasting virgin olive oils. You can tell the quality by sniffing the olive oil, taste and smell it. Different olive oil flavours?

    Girlfriends night in – why it’s a good idea.

    I had a phone date with one of my oldest girlfriends yesterday. We don’t do it very often. I could blame it on distance, family and work. All of which is true. But truth be told, I’m also crap at talking on the phone. I love getting my girlfriends all together and hang out. To be honest, it’s one of the things that matters the most to me. But it’s something with the phone that makes me feel even more distant at times. Relationships that matter With my friend on the phone, while softly listening to “we are family” in the background it reminded me how much I love her. How much I…

    The Vegan Semla

    The semla is a classical Swedish pastry that is served on Shrove Tuesday. Now days even before. But it used to be served as treat after fast. During the last couple of years the Semla, whether a vegan semla or not has popped up in many shapes and flavours. As you probably know by now I love experimenting with new flavours and play around with textures. The semla, however, is one of those absolute classical pastries that I love just the way they are. Hello vegan Semla I can go as far as a vegan semla, which really is just the way the classical one is. Just allergy friendly. I can even stretch…

    Swedish rice pudding – Ris á la Malta

    There’s a Swedish Christmas dessert that is called rice á la Malta. Swedish rice pudding.  It’s sort of rice pudding that has nothing to do with Malta at all. However, most families have their own recipe for it. It’s mostly common during Christmas, but can, of course, be eaten all year long.  Swedish rice pudding Rice pudding has been of those Christmas desserts that is must on the Swedish Christmas table. We even had it on our, even though we celebrated a very typical Hungarian Christmas.  None the less, my grandmother used to make it with canned sorted fruits and whipped cream. It’s quite a heavy dessert. I love it and I used…

    Things I do to reduce food-waste.

    Sponsored content Matsmart What if I told you that you buy groceries cheaper, in bigger quantities (if you want) all the while you are helping to reduce food waste. Sounds good? Keep on reading on how you can do the same. Stocking your pantry I don’t about you guys but in our house, the food is one of the most expensive expense posts. We are seven people every other week, I’m going to let that sink in a little. SEVEN. That means a lot of food. And as much as I love cooking some things are tedious. Like re-filling my pantry, which is quite often. Often with things I don’t realise I don’t…
