Hot Chocolate Spoons

Hot Chocolate Spoons

Hey friends! I’m back with a bang and some chocolate, ha! I’ve been busy working – also creating recipes, styling, taking pictures… But just not on this space. At least not as often as i would have loved to. If you’ve read my latest post, you know that there are a few things happening in my...

Hot Chocolate Bar & Giveaway (closed)

Hot Chocolate Bar & Giveaway (closed)

Ever since I had the first (proper) hot chocolate (memory) from real, melted chocolate (and, quite needless to say, not just from powder), I was hooked. There was no going back. I used to sip on such a rich, “real” chocolat chaud in the beautiful town of Aixe en Provence, in the South of France,...

Wild Blueberry Galette & Fishing in Finland

Wild Blueberry Galette & Fishing in Finland

“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.

Gooseberry Ricotta Cake

Gooseberry Ricotta Cake

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’m...

Flaky, Buttery Scones

Flaky, Buttery Scones

To start things off: I’m really sorry – crushed, actually – for that long absence from F&F! It’s been too long (you can tell this by spotting the peonies, who are clearly not late summer flowers, ahem… still very pretty though, and a shame to waste a perfectly good picture). Uncharacteristically, I’ve neglected this space...

Simple & Quick Coconut Loaf

Simple & Quick Coconut Loaf

Coconut is probably one of my favorite flavors… I don’t necessarily mean the (cheap) perfumes and body sprays (the term alone…) I used as a teenager. I admit I slightly overdid it with these. Much rather, I refer to the connotations of coconut with summer, sun and beaches – because obviously I’ve spent my beach vacations in Italy, where freshly...

Raspberry Swiss Roll

Raspberry Swiss Roll

Funnily, this dessert, that I’ve eaten countless times during my childhood – mostly on garden party occasions in our back yard. But have since neglected, inexplicably, is apparently called “Swiss Roll”. At least, that what pinterest recently indicated it as. Around here, it’s simply known as a “Raspberry Roulade” or “Biscuit Roulade”, which I find slightly more...

Summer Home

Summer Home

isn’t it so true when they say “summer time, and the living is easy”? i like the open-window kind of lifestyle. breezes sweeping through the flat, flowers in every corner, the balcony potted plants are growing like their weed (no pun intended), the more neutral tones gave way to summery, peachy tones, the bedding is...

Summer Dreaming

Summer Dreaming

i know it’s barely spring (although the weather has been treating us very nicely, lately), but i’m already in a summer state of mind. i’d like to go somewhere exotic, maybe tropic, or at least a little bit southern. somewhere with a beach with beautiful bright blue water and white sand. where they serve little...
