Koldskål

This is my recipe for the most delicious Danish Summer dessert, Koldskål w. Sweet Biscuits, made from eggs, lemon and buttermilk. Get the recipe below! My kitchen is currently filled with the delicate scent of peonies, and as a breeze stirs the blooming fruit trees of the garden an ephemeral odour of freshly mowed grass and the perfume of light yellow roses sweeps though the open patio door. Yes, it must be Summer. So, today I present to you my…

Mother’s Day Rhubarb Meringue Cupcakes

Mother's Day Rhubarb Meringue Cupcakes-2990

(Danish translation below) This year’s Mother’s Day will be my second as a mother. Last year August was only a baby, we had just returned from an awesome road trip around California, and I had just watched him crawl for the first time. One year later the whirlwind of worries and insecurity, which I’ve learned is inevitably linked with being a first-time mum, has almost settled. I’ve watched him grow into toddler-August and he has just spoken his first word;…

Coffee, Smoke & Whiskey Layer Cake

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 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…

Lavender Marshmallows

lavender-marshmallows-1008

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…

Pai Mu Tan & Lemon Loaf Cake

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…
