I don’t know about you, but I’m in the mood for some comfort food. I haven’t done a food post in quite a while, so now it’s time to have a look at some wonderful dishes for late fall and the winter season.
Fall and winter are my favourite time of the year. I love how everything turns red and orange outside. I also love cooking comfort food this time of the year. Nothing like enjoying some family time surrounded by the smell of delicious food in the making in the entire home.
Want to make some of the dishes yourself, take a look at these links and get cooking:
#1 Thai Butternut Squash Red Curry
#2 Crispy Sweet Potato Fries with Avocado Coriander Dip
#3 Winter Buddha Bowl
#4 Roasted Vegetable Salad with Garlic Dressing
#5 Butternut Squash and Spinach Lasagna
#6 Baked Gnocchi with Cream, Mushrooms and Blue Cheese Sauce
#7 Smoky Eggplant, Lamb Sausage and Potato Pizza
#8 Roasted Chicken with Thyme and Hasselback Potatoes
#9 Loaded Mac & Cheese
Well, hello all you lovely foodies out there. Vacation time is here. I cannot wait – so lets get this party started with some food inspiration. The list is long, and some of the dishes on the list are oldies but still goodies. I can’t wait to try out new ones and watch while my kids help in the kitchen. They sure love it. My daughter even went to a cooking summer school this past week, and she’s even more excited about cooking after that.
I’ve decided to split this post up into two posts – maybe even three – this first one will focus on things to cook for dinner, then I’ll write one about breakfast dishes as well, and of course – no summer food posts without desserts and ice cream. So I hope you’ll enjoy it.
Have a wonderful foodie summer!

I’ve been so busy lately. I recently started a new job, and I’ve been tired when I got home at night. So blogging was the last thing, I wanted to add to my daily work. But I really missed this place, and I’ll try and stop by a few times a week from now on.
Today, I want to share 5 dishes with you guys. This time it’s the breakfast edition, because I’m trying to be more creative, when it comes to this meal. I’ve selected the five dishes because I liked the ingredients, the look of it, and because it’s something that I would love to eat myself for breakfast.
I hope you get inspired to try out one or maybe even more of these dishes. Enjoy <3
1. Smoothie Bowl
2. Overnight coconut buckwheat porridge
3. Chunky Pistachio Pesto + Avocado Toast
4. Pink Sunrise Breakfast Smoothie
5. Overnight oats with strawberries
Cooking is on my list of things I want to do even more. A few years back I stopped doing some of the things I really loved doing. I really missed it, and I missed that creative part of me. Fortunately, I got back on track, and now I try to do things I love (just for me) every day.
I’ve been thinking about a theme for each month (like a do more of xxx that’ll make you happier kind of theme) – something that will keep me focused, and I get the chance to explore the theme even more. I’ll give it some more thought, but if I do decide to do it, I’ll let you know.
But lately, I’m beginning to cook more again. I’ve been collecting recipes since I was a kid. And now I’m cooking and baking again – and I’m really enjoying myself while doing it.
I’ve made a list of 5 dishes that I would love to try:
1. Chickpea shawarma sandvich
2. Roasted veggie pitas with avocado dip
3. Green chickpea & chicken cocunut curry
4. Rainbow power salad with roasted chickpeas
5. Garlicky kale salad with crispy chickpeas
I didn’t plan it, but when I looked through my list of dishes, I somehow craved chickpeas, and all I could think about while looking through them was how delicious all the dishes with chickpeas looked. Next time, I’ll be sure to pick a variety of dishes. But I do hope, you like chickpeas just a little bit.
Have a lovely day <3
This year I’ve only got one craving for Easter. I would love one Black Birdhouse from Johan Bülow, please. I simply love love love the Dulce de Leche Choc Coated Liquorice bites. And if not for me, then I’m pretty sure my daughter will ask me numerous time, if she can have a Birdhouse for Easter. Needless to say, we’re a liquorice loving family – but we’re also very picky about which kind we enjoy. So dear Easter Bunny, I hope you’re reading this…

As some of you know, I’m quite fond of Gin & Tonics. It all started about two years ago. When I was young, I wouldn’t tough it at all. I was convinced that it wasn’t a drink for me. But as I grew older and wiser, I tasted it again. And now it’s my favourite drink. Actually, we have a Friday night G&Ts club with my oldest friend. We all love a good Hendricks (check out their website – it’s pretty cool), but have tried quite a few other gins as well.
How about you? Are you old school? Or get a kick out of mixing it up with all sorts of things? What is your best gin and tonic? This is a passion that we’ll continue exploring, so if you’ve got any gin suggestions, please let me know.
I’ve collected a few drinks that I’ve tried, or want to try over the next couple of Friday’s.
