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.

I’m back in Aarhus again and finishing up the last few weeks of the course.
I’ve been exploring the city after class ends every day, which isn’t half bad. Truth be told, I still miss the little ones and my man like crazy. I miss kissing them goodnight and picking them up from school. I miss the everyday life with them.
But in the meantime, I’ll enjoy fresh juice from Juice Stop. It has turned out to be quite addictive. I’m thinking about trying out their Juice cure as well. But enough about food.
The real reason why I stopped by was to show you an amazing apartment, which I’ve found on Fantastic Frank’s blog.

I almost feel like it isn’t really summer if I haven’t been to Gothenburg in Sweden. Last week we decided on a day trip this year with both kids. Unfortunately, the ferry had a little accident on Sunday, and we had to change our plans. We were all pretty excited about the trip, but we decided to go during our fall break instead.
I wanted to return to my favourite coffee spot da Matteo with my husband and both kids.

But I also recently discovered another coffee spot, Kafé Magasinet, which I’ve been wanting to explore.

Watermelon screams summer, right. My family and I love eating melons – my youngest one in particular. We call him the fruit monster, because he can eat a whole melon all by himself and still ask for more fruit. Here are a few tips on how you and your family can enjoy it in new ways. Welcome to watermelon heaven.

It almost feels like autumn here in Denmark. It’s so windy all the time, and we’re not eating outside as much as we had planned. Today, I crave mostly food related stuff like great organic food – preferably in a box from Aarstiderne (Gosh, I really miss our weekly boxes and meal plans). I would love to add Green Kitchen Travels to our collection of cookbooks as well. I plan to make some serious changes in terms of what I eat this autumn. All these lovely and colourful meals would be well served in the Stockholm plate from Ikea. Lastly, I crave this beautiful necklace by Maria Black. It’s my birthday in August, and this beauty is already on my list.

3. I will use some of the Danish strawberries for this No bake Strawberry tart
4. Delicious rhubarb ice popsicles (the recipe is in German)
