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-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…

“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-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…

Date & Almond Chocolate Cake-8939-2

Hi friends, today we have a Date & Almond Chocolate Cake for you. This recipe has been tested quite a lot during the past months. Usually we run our recipes 2-3 times before posting them on the blog, but I’ve lost count on how many times we’ve ‘tested’ this recipe. It’s one of those recipes where we always seem to have all the ingredients at hand and it has quickly become our go-to-cake whenever we have friends coming over and…

Chia & Quinoa Porridge-8453

We’re back in Copenhagen after an amazing road trip through California. After a few days with unpacking and adjusting to Copenhagen time our everyday lives are back to normal; Mikkel is back at work and I’m still on maternity leave playing around with our little monkey. By this point it almost seems surreal that we just went to the other side of the World with our 5-month-old baby. But we did and it couldn’t have gone any better. Travelling with…
