Cavolo Nero Preserved Lemon Tagliatelle Pasta -1530

Hello 2017! Mikkel and August are napping in our bedroom leaving me with a window of one, maybe two hours if I’m lucky, to finish this first post of the new year. Maybe I even get to sit down with a cup of mint tea and flip through the Kinfolk issue I bought before Christmas; it has been sitting on our shelf, unopened, ever since. Lately, life has just been a bit more chaotic than usual. I’m not going to…

The final post of the year and a trip down memory lane, that’s what these marshmallows are. They remind me of field trips during my early school years, kisses in the glow of the bonfire’s flickering flames, and young love. But they’re also a window into the near future; as I’m toasting  marshmallows over a candle I picture the bonfires and late Summer nights we’re going to experience from next year in the dream garden of mine, belonging to the…

The annual Christmas table is full of stonewashed linen, copper, stoneware from a local artist, wild flowers and dusty pinks. Mikkel says I’m a table setting nerd, and the fact is I am. I love to plan a table Weeks ahead, and the preparations for this table began months ago in Paris, when I found this beautiful slate grey washed linen table cloth in my dream store, Merci. When I plan how to set a table, I go about it…

And just like that the past year flew by and I’m back at work. Our new everyday as a family of three is full on, and we’re slowly solving the solitaire of two full-time working parents and the quotidian chores. This has meant lowering my bar for success which is not an easy task for this perfectionist, but I’m getting better and better, one baby step at a time. Weekends, on the other hand, are still sacred – perhaps more…

Luckily, I come prepared; A while ago I decided to create a holiday cocktail for family and friends who are visiting during the holidays; something festive and effortless to mix from staples in my cupboard. The result was this Ginger Kombucha &…

We went road-tripping in California, hiked in the Faroe Islands, swam in Barcelona, and feasted in Paris. August kept us awake at night, got his first teeth, and took his first steps. I overcame my fear of nursing in public, my body healed, and I’m back into my favourite jeans. A year has passed since we got to hold our little monkey for the first time; we travelled, overcame our fears, returned home, and landed on our feet. In the…
