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

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. 😉

Xmas treats: Biscotti

Hi, peeps! How you’re doing? I’ve started my Xmas preparations as of yesterday and I thought I should share some recipes with you. I haven’t got around to decorating that much, although I did buy a tiny weeny potted tree, red tulips and some red berry branches. Thought I’d fix the rest this week- buy some amaryllis (if the bf’s not allergic to them), fetch the decoration box from the cellar and do the rest of my baking. But for now, here’s the biscotti recipe:_MG_0059.jpg Continue reading

Espresso cookies, please!

As promised, here’s the espresso cookie recipe. I didn’t manage the deed yesterday, too tired for that (I actually fell asleep on the couch at 10:30 pm!), but today I got around to do it. After lazying around for the better part of the day, eating cold pizza for breakfast and pasta with a bit of this and that for lunch, I felt it was time to do some baking and then, in the middle of it, I realised I lacked an egg. So I knocked on the neighbours’ door and they didn’t have, either, they’d just eaten them for breakfast, but they invited me and Sammy to stay a bit and have a cup of tea. Needless to say we couldn’t have been more happy! _MG_9912.jpg Continue reading

November mood

I survived a couple of intense weeks, including commuting for 3 h every day four days this week, but that left me completely without energy. And so my plan for today is to walk Sammy, Netflix, nap, Hbo, nap again, drink mulled wine and scratch my crotch. (not literally, of course) And then bake some pizza and espresso cookies.

Brownie cookies

For a week or so, I´ve been longing for something sweet and homemade, but the inspiration to bake didn´t announce itself until yesterday. 😉 I´ve been either busy, tired, lazy or I simply couldn´t be bothered with shining the kitchen, in order to start baking.  It so happens that Matpaabordet has many easy-to-make recipes and since I haven´t been disappointed yet, I thought I´d try these cookies. Husband and neighbours applauded my effort and quality checked the result. 😉

Coconut chocolate chip cookies

Yesterday I invited a couple of friends over for a summer gathering. I was hoping for better weather so we could sit outside, but Scandinavian summers are what they are. However, I and Sam had picked up some wild flowers, lit some candles and opened the windows, so the summer breeze could be felt inside, too. 😉 For mains I made a quinoa salad with peaches, feta cheese and pommegranate, put together a cheese platter for starters and as a dessert I whipped together these lovely chocolate chip cookies with coconut. The recipe I found on Norwegian blogger matpaabordet. They were the bomb! 😉
