Coffee, Smoke & Whiskey Layer Cake

March 8, 2017
Coffee, Smoke & Bourbon Whiskey Layer Cake-2546

Some ten years ago I met a man on a hot Summer day in a whirlwind of music festival dust. He wore worn out Chuck Taylor All Stars and a crooked smile, and lured with the promise of cold beers and good laughs. We went to a concert together later that night, and to this day I still can’t stop smiling whenever a song from that concert is played on the radio. To me, that’s the sound of young love.…

Blood Orange Meringue Tart

Blood Orange Merengue Tart-1934

My dear friend, Valentina, and I met on the very first day of law school and before our first class of contract law was done we were chatting about our common love for food, good food. And we haven’t stopped since. During the years we’ve explored everything from fine dining to casual Sunday cake, and this Sunday I invited her over to catch up and taste this Blood Orange Meringue Tart. She is one of those friends whose opinions I…

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…

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…

Grandma’s Buttermilk Pancakes

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 Cookies

August 20, 2016
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…
