Me

As I was hinting in the other entry, this year might have some exciting things in store for us. But since I’m not yet sure of anything, I can’t share too much. All I can say is that my spirits are sky high and so is my appetite for life. It’s like I’m suddenly drawing energy from a secret place within myself- hello, this is so unfair, I’ve been struggling on a minimum fuel level for the last 10 years now!

Langos

Remember our trip to Budapest in the beginning of December? You don’t?! Then head over to my entry about it. Although I was in a particularly cranky mood and the lack of service got on my nerves like never before, we had some amazing food there! For our first lunch we ordered two big portions of goulash and they came with freshly baked langos. They were so good I promised myself to repeat the deed at home.

Days Towards Something that’s Never Been

My cousin’s New Year’s toast was “Let 2019 be full of things that have never been”. I wish the same for both you and myself. Let there be less heartbreak and sorrow, let there be more joy, let us be kinder, be better, let us dare to be ourselves. And last, but not least, let our dreams come true! ❤ 49484265_10155909500826711_1879174000182034432_n.jpg Continue reading

Gingerbread aka pepperkaker

Happy New Year! 😉 I hope you had a better New Year’s Eve than we did, the fireworks terrified our poor Sammy and we spent most of the evening hiding away from the noise in the bathroom. This being said, I’m sensing that 2019 has great potential and I’m going to make the best of it! ❤49332688_321303368716729_8435881515321131008_n.jpg Continue reading

Mornings

Oh, how I love mornings! Not the rush, but the silence- you know, when you wake up early-ish and there’s not a sound in the world, except for the clock ticking, and the neighborhood is still at peace (and in complete darkness, because it’s Norway!) and you can almost hear your own breath? I love mornings by myself so much I’m constantly afraid of waking up “the rest of the house”, so I’m tiptoeing around, coffee in hand, smiling to myself: “now this is what I call happiness”. IMG_4630 Continue reading

Espresso cookies 2018

How y’all doing? Nothing much here- dentist and doctor’s appointments, baking cookies and agonizing about my raging hormones and all their side effects. 😉 Sam is with us until the 25th and we’ve been walking and walking, he’s been enjoying himself and I’ve been pretending I did, too, for his sake. Meanwhile I’ve been longing for warmer places, both while day dreaming and in my sleep. 😉

Gift ideas 2018

Christmas is around the corner, I’m done with most of my presents, so I can enjoy the rest of the advent socializing and baking. I want to make biscotti and espresso cookies, the traditional Romanian babka, lemon curd, Christmas chutney and sugarcoated almonds. What can’t you do without for the holidays?
