Hey Lovers of all things pretty! I’m back to this (strangely strange) space. Hello, blogosphere, it’s me, the foreigner, just checking in. And I brought chocolate…! To compensate and win you over, you know? Kind of. Lol, no, honestly. I hardly remember how to do this thing called “blogging” anymore. It’s been wayyyy too longContinue reading
Sicilian Caponata is something like the better ratatouille (sorry, Frenchies). It’s more clever and more versatile at once. I love that it’s also eaten and enjoyed cold and on its own, not just as a side. I wish i could grow all the vegs that go into it in my own backyard. Those super pretty squashes, theContinue reading
Although fall is definitely my favorite season – how can anyone not love it? it’s not as cold as the winter, it’s not as scorching as summer and it’s not as unpredictable as spring… And that’s just for everything that it’s not. Apart from the fact that it is also a lot of really good things…
“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.
Summer isn’t all but gone yet – despite the much chillier mornings and nights – but i’m already craving darker, moodier, more comfort oriented foods. If only for the looks. And what better to fulfill this mood than dark, intense, naughty chocolate?
I simply can not walk past zucchini flowers – or any edible flower, for that matter. Zucchini flowers always leave me strangely torn between wanting to embrace them and on the other hand leaving me to feel sorry for the zucchinis that are bereft of their beautiful accessories… I tend to ask the zucchinis nicely ifContinue reading
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.
If one Credo has proven to be a good one in my life, it’s to strive for semi-perfect. Seeking perfection isn’t a virtue, instead, it steals a lot of time. Semi-perfect is often so much less stressful and thus more healthy and more efficient, too. It’s a lesson i’m still learning, as i’m often losingContinue reading
The current heat wave… Makes me slightly dizzy. I’m constantly dreaming of ways to cool me down; inlcuding a pool to dip my feet in (at work), ice creams for breakfast, or maybe even just a tiny, chilly breeze at night to move through my bedroom? No such thing though. I’m just glad it’s theContinue reading
