Blood oranges!! There are loads of delicious looking recipes for this seasonal treat this time of the year. I had to take part because I adore this rare gem of fruit as well. These tartlets are very easy to make, and because the fruit is so amazing itself you don’t even need that many ingredients. They are also… what?? Completely free of added sugar! Don’t ditch your gym card just yet though, I don’t think these count as a “healthy treat” after all.Read More
This spread is made with red lentils and sunflower seeds, which makes it pretty cheap. It's actually quite healthy, too... AND it's super simple to make, plus you can easily change the taste by changing the seasonings.Read More
Summer food is all about simplicity, because hey - it's summer, we're taking it easy. Everyone adores new potatoes, but okay they're pretty amazing. Soft and small and cute! This recipe is absolutely perfect for your Midsummer festivities. Enjoy with seasoned crème fraîche!
Grandma's lemon meringue pie was my favorite as a kid, and now I have finally added this delicious creation to my cooking repertoire. (This is the second time I'm making this within a month.) I'm not really a religious person, but I'd say that lemon meringue pie is also an Easter-appropriate dessert. Easter marks the beginning of spring, which is definitely welcome!Read More
Oh my!! It's just about Christmas and I've still got a couple of recipes for you.
Orange and rosemary go together like gin & juice. Actually orange and rosemary go together with gin, too... Anyway, this compote is a perfect companion for savory Christmas dishes, spicy food, and even with gingerbread! Hint: stay tuned for my next post.Read More
It's time for the second Christmas dinner recipe!
This recipe has been on my to-post list for a while. The first time I made this was for my birthday party last summer, so definitely consider this as a festive food for any season. And it was a huge hit! Because the carrot lox itself takes time to prepare and needs to marinate at least over night, this isn't your last minute life saver. Saying that, I need to point out that even though it takes time, it's not complicated at all - don't be afraid of the preparing.Read More
I keep saying "I never bake anything", yet... Here we are, again.
I'd been thinking about making a traditional carrot cake, switching the carrot to butternut squash. But then I also really wanted that soft, gooey pumpkin pie - so I decided I can have both.Read More
I just got a load of lingonberries hand-picked by my sister!! Most of them I already stored in my freezer for later use, but for once I felt like baking something. Something sweet! I ended up with a very classic Finnish autumn combination, but hey - it's a classic for a reason.Read More
Autumn might just be my favorite season food-wise. I love all the wonderful veggies that are at their best, but it's also the time for fresh beginnings, new found energy & inspiration. Not to mention how the cool weather also inspires staying in, just saying. More time for cooking!Read More
This tasty drink is both simple & quick to make - just the way you need it on a hot summer day. (Fingers crossed we'll get some of those days soon, here in Finland... well, I'll just keep sipping on my cooler until then.)Read More
I can not think of a better way to kick off this blog but with pancakes! Same goes for Sundays... I don't know about "breakfast of the champions" but these pancakes will keep away the hangry for a good while!Read More
