My plan to make banana pancakes for breakfast yesterday, turned in to our lunch instead! Because while I got stuck in bed for awhile watching a bit of Notting Hill (never get tired of that movie!!) the kids made their own breakfast, oops hehe. Can’t believe how big they are!!
1tsp Vanilla powder
A little bit of salt
Cinnamon or cardamom (if you like)
Mix all ingredients and fry in coconut oil! Serve with fresh berries. I added some powdered sugar for the look – blog friendly :) Quick, easy and healthy!
Welcome June!! This was yesterdays’s lunch in the hot weather- Mixed greens with lots of avocado, tomatoes, cucumber, mushrooms, red onion, pine nuts, olive oil, salt and pepper – served with grilled chicken, pesto and buffalo mozzarella. Yum, a perfect summer lunch!
Now it’s time to clean up the kitchen after a late Saturday breakfast. Birmingham Fair (tivoli) is next on our schedule and the boys are excited! Oliver is done with school so he’s now in Summer break!! I still remember that feeling, the best. Eddie-Bo has two more weeks to go and after that we’ll spend the summer in Sweden, like every summer!
♥ I’m still overwhelmed by all love and support from you all. I received a lot of questions too, that I hope I can answer soon when I have time to sit down ♥
I wish you a good weekend!
Once upon a time I told my mom – I will always have home baked fika in my home! Well that’s not the case, even though I love to bake. (When I grew up my grandma always filled up the freezer with yummy stuff in my dads house, the best). So I had to bake last minute the day my mom arrived :) I made a sponge cake with vanilla cream in the middle. Nom nom! Please let me know if you want the recipe in English.
Sockerkaka med vaniljfyllning
3 dl socker
1dl kokande vatten
1. Vispa ägg och socker poröst
2. Blanda i mjöl, bakpulver ock kokande vatten
3. Smörj och ‘bröa’ en springform
4. Häll i smeten och grädda ca 40min 175 grader
5. Låt svalna och dela kakan
6. Lägg i smör, mjölk och vaniljsocker i en kastrull och koka upp
7. Häll vaniljkrämen på bottendelen och lägg på toppen
8. Strö över vaniljsocker
9. Ät och njut!
Smakar nästan ännu godare om den serveras kylskåpskall. Funkar perfekt som grund till en smarrig sommartårta – bara att spritsa grädde och tillsätta bär!
Tonight’s dinner – Salad, with baby spinach, arugula, tomatoes, mozzarella, leek, sugar peas, cucumber and walnuts, with some olive oil, salt and black pepper on the top. Quick and easy! Don’t think I’m this healthy all the time. I ate pizza for lunch :)
I like this bowl from Ikea and…
… and this big serving fork from Target.
Also like this big boy like crazy, that came by to check the outdoor fridge while we ate our salad on the steps. What a beautiful day it has been!! So nice to end the day out here after another sporty day. Hockey game for Eddie-Bo and soccer game for Oliver!
The bed is now calling and a few episodes of The Crown. Well needed after a fun and late night out yesterday. The dance show was amazing!!
Today I’ve been baking delicious Havrebollar//Oatballs! (I’ll update with recipe in English tomorrow) They look like chocolate balls, but are different in the taste.
So fluffy and so good. And my nails are ready for Mexico!!
Hubby came home and found me right here -Ehh what are you doing?? Me -Having a fika :) (fika= Swedish word for when you eat something sweet) Well, I thought it was a good place to take photos.
A sick Oliver was joining me.
These oatballs were my pre workout snack today, haha! I love to eat and I love to work out. A good combo!
Oh wow, delicious salmon with an Asian touch!! I don’t have an exact recipe but my friend Evelina inspired me the other day after her friend had made this for her :) However here are all ingredients. And if you don’t like cilantro (koriander), skip it. I really start to like that now, couldn’t stand it years ago!
Marinade – fresh minced ginger, 1 garlic, chili flakes, juice from a lime, cilantro, salt, oil (i used sesame oil), soy sauce and a splash of water, let the salmon marinate over the night or at least for many hours. Cook it in the oven 325F/175C for about 30 min.
Salad– mango, avocado, cucumber, spring leek (salladslök), jalapeños, cilantro, lime juice, salt, oil.
Sauce– mix sour cream (creme fraiche) and Sriracha sauce and salt (the more Sriracha the more heat).
Happy weekend peeps!!
Good morning! Outside breakfast smoothie with my bedheads (morgonrufs)! We woke up to a clear blue sky, stayed in bed for a long time since there is no school today, due to the holiday. So nice! Oliver stayed in pajamas till 11am. Eddie-Bo needs to get dressed as soon he goes up from bed, pajamas are for babies… ok!!
Today’s smoothie is a mix of, milk (normally use almond milk), beet juice, strawberries, pineapple, blueberries, raspberries, the powder from a Juice plus capsule, and a little bit of agave syrup. Yum!! And all organic of course… :)
Happy Memorial Day peeps! We’ll spend the day at a country club, with pool and family fun activities!
Just bumped into this picture from the summer! A yummy and healthy fröknäcke/seed crisp bread that I bake in Sweden all the time, and for some reason never here in the States. Well, time to change that. Tomorrow! And it’s at least very healthy until I add butter and cheese :)
1 dl sesamfrö
1 dl pumpakärnor
1 dl solroskärnor
1 dl majsmjöl
1/2 dl hela linfrö
1/2 dl olivolja
2 dl kokande vatten
Mixa alla torra ingredienser, förutom flintsaltet, tillsätt oljan och vattnet, låt vila ca 15 min, bred ut på en plåt med bakplåtspapper, smidigast att trycka ut smeten med ett bakplåtspapper över, himla kladdigt annars, på med flingsalt och in i ugnen 150 C i ca 60 minuter! Så gott!!!
Recipe in English:
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup corn flour
1/4 cup whole flax seeds
1/4 cup olive oil
1 cup hot boiled water
Mix all the dry ingredients, except for the salt, add olive oil and water, let it rest for 15 minutes, use a tin plate with a sheet of parchment paper, press out the batter, a good tips is to take another sheet of parchment paper on top while you press out the batter with your hands, very sticky otherwise! Last, add flake salt and put it in the oven 300F for about 60 minutes. Yummy!!
Try it!! Have a wonderful weekend!!
