Incredible how fast time goes by… I’ve been meaning to get into Holiday Baking much earlier, but life got in the way. December… Gotta love this season! So many plans, so little time. As it turns out, this Sunday was the first opportunity to simply bake something (not strictly necessary). So I got into theContinue reading
Last weekend I was in a bit of a cooking (and eating…) daze, all the time. We had our parents visiting for lunch on Saturday, which means we were prepping well into Friday night (or Saturday morning, if you like). I love to host guests for a festive, pre-christmas get-together, well before the actual HolidayContinue reading
Normally, I’d be working on putting together The List for my Seasonal Bucket List – but this year, it just feels like we’re still so far away from Winter and The Holidays… Or maybe this year just went too fast? It sure was an eventful on. Normally, by this time, I’d be well intoContinue reading
Remember when I recently showed you the Apple Fritters my friend and I made one random Saturday? Well, there were Apple Fritters – and then there were these darlings here: Chocolate Chip Challah Buns. With honey inside. And sweet and salty sprinkles. Doughy and nice. Very fluffy. In one word: heaven in a Bun. Well,Continue reading
There’s something about chocolate that always makes me see the output (read: the chocolatey goodness i just created) in a monochromatic way. Why?

What normally appears to be just a dark brown color shines even more on an otherwise bland blackContinue reading
Some might associate spring or summer with the loveliest flowers, but for me it’s always been Fall… Just look at those mighty Sunflowers! Huge! And right in front of my mom’s house, in the middle of the city, on an underestimated little field. The abundance of flowerful colors – Sunflowers but also Dahlias and thoseContinue reading
“Gone fishing in the middle of nowhere” – how does this status update sound to you? It was what we actually and honestly did this summer during one blissful week: Fishing in Finland. Looking at the pictures now i feel a pang of longing.
Hei Hei, I’m back! Back from our little summer vacay in Finland – and already back (knee deep) at work. The holidays passed fairly quickly, then again, our stay in the rural log cabin in the lake country of Finland, near Kuopio, was magic and uplifting and also strangely felt like time stood still. I’mContinue reading
Hi, dears, while you read this, I’m definitely away on my little vacay. Probably fishing. Or picking blueberries. Somewhere in the middle of nowhere in Finland. Blissful vacation. Clearing my mind. Meanwhile, back here on F&F, I have a lot of catching up to do… With recipes.
Did you spy the label “best in class” this recipe has been filed under…? Because this definitely is, best in class. It’s the best focaccia i ever made. Maybe i’ve eaten a couple ones that were a teensy bit better yet? But not many. either way, this is close to perfect. Focaccia heaven! And, asContinue reading
