    Meatless Monday – kid friendly recipes

    It’s Monday and meatless Monday none the less. In Sweden, meatless Monday’s have been a thing for quite a while now. The kid’s get lunch at school and they have slowly gotten used to less and less meat on the menu. Which is great. We have been trying Meatless Mondays in our home too for a while and it’s going in the right direction. Getting the kid’s approval Every other week we have five kid’s in the house. Both I and my partner are divorced and between us, there are five kids. Cooking for kid’s can be challenging in any shape or form, but when you bring kid’s together who are used to very different…

  • 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.

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,…

  • Savoury pancakes with chanterelle

    Savoury pancakes with chantarelle are easy to make, they are glutenfree and versatile! School is now back in full gear and in Sweden is almost time for the autumnal break. This usually gives me a little food angst. Kids home all day, hungry! In Sweden, we are lucky enough to have served qualitative lunch at school every day. This takes some of the pressure off. We don’t have to pack lunch boxes for our kids and most schools have decent food. But we all have the same problem after school, making dinner. The hour between getting home and until dinner is served is called the hell hour for a reason. Everyone, including myself, is…
