Dear Grandma, I got blueberries at the market yesterday. I carried them home carefully not to squeeze them under the head of cabbage I bought, too. I think they’ll be the last blueberries I carry home this season. Autumn is sneaking in, mostly unnoticed under the persisting Copenhagen heat, but it can’t hide its flaming leaves that dances to the rhythms of the wind on the pavement. To mark the end of Summer I made us a big batch of…

Rose & Cardamom Shortbreads-9867

We’re home from the Faroe Islands. Both our adventurous hearts and memory cards are filled to the brink, and as soon as we’ve digested it all we’ll curate a travel guide for you guys. But until then let’s talk about these cookies. They may look simple to the eye but their flavour is worth talking about. Lately I’ve found my mind wandering off to Morocco. We went there a little over three years ago and I can still taste the…

Buttermilk biscuits w lavender & apricot jam + ricotta-9402

The recipe I’m sharing today is an ode to mornings; The day yet to unfold; Freshly ground coffee beans; Good bread; A boiling kettle & a song on the radio. It’s an ode to morning light. That morning light that changes as season pass. Year after year. From a white and crisp Winter light to the warm and soft Summer rays that can make most of your worries fade. At least for a moment. Take a moment while you sit…

Cabbage & Pea Salad

Cabbage & Pea Salad-9157

I always look forward to this time of year, when the peas are in season. They remind me of my childhood and warm Summer days. Days without a worry in the World. Days of endless Summer spent at my grandparents’ farm, building caves and searching for kittens hiding in the hay.  I remember my grandma always took me, my sister, and brother to the garden to dig up new potatoes and carrots, and that we could always eat all the…

Strawberry & Oat Breakfast Smoothie

Strawberry Oat Breakfast Smoothie-9006

“Life truly begins only after you have put your house in order.” That’s how Marie Kondo begins her book ‘Spark Joy’; A book I randomly came across in a book store in San Francisco and a book that ended up being my key to create space for creativity. Living in a two bedroom apartment we’ve learned to keep things simple and we’re always trying only to buy things that we really need, whether it’s food, furniture or clothing (I really…

Pea, Mint & Coconut Soup

June 12, 2016
Pea Mint & Coconut Soup-8965

Our last recipe included fresh strawberries (and a chocolate cake!). With today’s recipe we’re continuing down the fresh-Summer-produce-road; a creamy Pea, Mint & Coconut Soup. The first times I made pea soup it turned out all yellow and sad. Which made me sad, too. In my head, the soup was supposed to turn into a beautiful light green soup with a mild taste of peas. After a few more failures I googled like a mad woman and found that the…
