After a pretty cold Summer, we were starting to doubt that we would really get much of a crop this year, but suddenly 2 weeks ago, the strawberries started to ripen. Together with our trusted rhubarb, it makes for a delicious jam.
Getting my two little monkey’s to eat their fruits is actually not very difficult. They tend to devour most fruits put in front of them. But they enjoy some changes and inspiration every now and then too.
My love for baking my own bread started quite recent with the discovery of no knead bread. As with most things, I don’t stick blindly to the recipe or technique as I like to experiment. Sometimes it fails and other times it is a success. This latest attempt was a great one and it turned out moist and tasty. Continue reading
So what’s with all the travel posts from Denmark you may think?
I have recently been to Denamrk a few times to check on our holiday house down there. We will likely be going to Legoland every single year in the foreseeable future. Or at least there is a risk of that happening, but we will see. With two boys aged 2 and 4 years old, and a Lego loving uncle (even if he is slightly older …. almost 30 🙂 ) there will be Lego overload for years to come, especially for mum.
I love trying out new twists when baking bread, trying to find a good combination of ingredients and also the right proving. Sometimes it fails completely and all I get is a brick that smells good, other times it is a great success! And the fun is in the testing and tasting afterwards.
There is just nothing like a fresh and luke warm slice of bread!
A good crisp bread is great for breakfasts, lunch boxes or as a mid-day snack to tie you over. This one is slightly different to what I have made before, with chopped dates embedded in them, making these ones great as tapas sides with salty cheeses and salamis. I actually made these for a tapas and wine tasting evening we had with some friends. And I will share recipes for some of the other dishes I made in the coming days.
A good granola makes such a great part of a breakfast or evening snack. I have already posted one recipe for a granola, but have made some changes. This one contains less sugar than my previous recipe and more nuts and dried fruits.
It’s not always easy to find good recipes for dairy free variations for good baked goods. This time I found and modified a recipe that originally had yogurt in it. I didn’t have soy yogurt without flavor at hand, so I swapped with soy cream instead. And the result was very delicious. It creates a whole different wholesomeness to the flavor of the buns. You can of course make these with a basic bread bun dough as well, but there is a bit more flavor to these. Continue reading
Visiting Denmark, there are so many of the typical tourist attractions you tend to visit. And don’t get me wrong, we have been past a few of them too! But there are so many small and less known places to see and visit too. During our trip, I looked for places that could be interesting to both adults and the kids. I then quite randomly stumbled across an ad for Hopballe Mølle and we decided to give it a try for breakfast. They serve breakfast on the weekends between 09.00 and 11.45, brunch between 12.15 and 15.00 and then coffee and cake from 14.30 to 17.00. Continue reading
