Its Christmas here in Norway today to but I thought I would just give you one last DIY Christmas idea for those of you who are running on a last minute schedule.
Keeping up with my DIY Christmas tradition and already sharing some Norwegian goodies with you, I thought I would share some more! Having never really been a huge fan of raisins, Norwegian Christmas bread seems to be the exception! The bread is sweet, soft, full of flavor and above all? Super duper easy to make!
The closer I get to Christmas, the more I crave Christmas food and for the first time ever I am craving mince pies. Don’t ask me why, I have always thought of them as these dry, tasteless raisin filled fake cupcakes that belong nowhere near a Christmas table. Give me a Norwegian Kakemenn any day!
I also love making my own Christmas presents, and this year I think it might just be Kakemenn 😉
Like the English weather, I too am not entirely ready to let go of summer. I mean yes I do want chunky knits and hearty stews but I also still want tanned skin, summer dresses, and fresh salads. Korean beef salad has become our happy medium, the fact that it’s towards the healthy side helps too.
I’m sorry if this post’s heading made you drool but come on, can you think of anything tastier than mushrooms stuffed with pesto AND cheese?! I kinda died when I came across this recipe. I mean ALL THE CHEESE, and pesto and mushrooms and pine nuts and seriously I could eat it all.
Happy Tuesday Ssasspots! Hope you’ve all had a lovely bank holiday weekend 🙂
I know there has been a lot of food related content on the blog recently, but that’s the great thing about being a lifestyle blogger. I’m sharing parts of my everyday life, and if you know me, you know food is a huge part of my life! Another little guilty pleasure of mine is baking, and although I have never allowed myself to get swept up by GBBO (that done by choice btw, I’d be glued to the tv if I did!) I thought I would get you all warmed up with a little treat seeing as the new season starts in an hour!
When it comes to smoothie making, I’m not gonna lie I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed. There are MILLIONS of smoothie recipes out there and they are getting more and more complex. Like I don’t have a stash of flax seed just chilling around… Nor do I always have a variety of non-dairy milk kicking about in the fridge and I can pretty much guarantee you that if we buy bananas, they don’t make it to the freezer.
So, If you’re feeling the same – this post my dears is for you!
Happy Sunday babes!
Where has the weekend gone? Although I am not complaining, I’m a sucker for a chilled Sunday snuggled under a blanket binging Netflix! As I am typing this, I am just polishing off the last piece of cake from last weeks event. You might have seen it over on my Instagram, or twitter. I mean it’s kinda difficult to ignore this bad boy – and as a little treat, I have included the recipe at the end of the post – The Ice Dream Cake!
Ill be the first to admit my food photography isn’t great, so you’re basically gonna get like 2 pics from the same angle but I’m sure you will live.
ANYWHOOOOOOO – I wanted to share with you my new obsession in life, these epic sweet potato turkey burgers. Because sweet potato good! Turkey good! Burgers good!
and everything else that goes into it, GOOD!
Happy post-Easter babes!
I hope your Easter was filled with some R&R, lots of chocolate with a little bit of vino ze side. I am desperately trying to shed 5kgs at the moment, so I am EXTREMELY proud to say I spent the WHOLE easter weekend chocolate and booze free.
Take that chocolate addiction!
I feel so bad for the boyfriend though, because even though he still gets to enjoy the small joys in life, he had to suffer through listening to me rant rage over pretty much every little thing you can image. I kinda feel like it was PMS on steroids.
Guys, it’s officially spring! Can you believe it?! I certainly can’t! I’m currently on crutches having torn a ligament in my foot so everything I do is taking twice the amount of time… very very frustrating when you have a super busy week ahead. Therefore today’s blog post is going to be short and sweet!
