An espresso moment

Coffee moments I love reading about coffee, drinking good coffee, and looking at pictures of coffee. So today, I’ll share with you some of my favourite coffee pictures. And if you’re ever in my hood, you really should visit the coffee bar Behag din Smag for the best coffee in town.

16 different ice creams for summer

Ice pops Collage One of the things I like the most about summer time is trying out different ice pops. When my husband and I moved in together (over a decade ago), we bought an ice cream maker. Truth be told, we never used it much, but this summer I’m about to change that.

With two ice cream loving kids in the house (+ friends), we need and want to step it up a bit. We all want to get creative and try out as many different homemade ice popsicles as possible.

Our daughter (our little foodie in the making) loves to bake and cook and she would love to make more ice cream as well. Last year, she made the most delicious raspberry/white chocolate ice pops and we’ve picked out a few recipes to get us started this summer as well.

Here are the 16 ice cream recipes, shown in the collage, to get your summer started:

1. Roasted Strawberries and Cream Popsicles
2. Green Tea Coconut popsicles
3. Små hindbærispinde (Recipe in Danish)
4. Madeleine popsicles
5. Blueberry and orange icy pops
6. Mint Chocolate Cheesecake Popsicles
7. Baileys poptails
8. Blackcurrant Caramel Yoghurt Ice Pops
9. Ice cream sandwiches – couldn’t find this recipe, but you can try this one instead.
10. Fruity Striped Ice Cubes
11. Chai Tea Latte popsicles
12. Pomegranate & grapefruit sorbet terrine
13. Mango Lassi popsicle
14. Små blåbærispinde med skyr (Recipe in Danish)
15. Vanilla Mint Lemonade pops
16. Cookies & Cream popsicle

I’ve collected quite a few recipes on my Pinterest board – A Foodie Moment – however, the ice cream recipes are mixed with all sorts of other recipes. But I promise you, the search will be worth it. Check it out for even more ice cream inspiration.

If you’ve got some delicious recipes please share them with us in a comment below.

Have a fantastic day <3

Hello sunshine

I really hope you’re enjoying the weekend. The sun is finally here in Denmark, and we’re enjoying every bit of it.

Right now I’m waiting for my big girl to get home. She’s been on her very first girl scout trip in the woods and slept in a tent there. I cannot wait to hear all about it. It’s been a crazy 24 hours for me – I guess I wasn’t prepared for this to happen soo soon. But my little girl is growing up.

Have a lovely Sunday!

Mini guide – Berlin (for the inner foodie in you)

Berlin Guide

 

I went to Berlin in April and ever since, I’ve been wanting to share a few spots and places with you. This time we travelled with my daughter, who is seven years old, while the little one stayed at home. We stayed in an apartment near Nollendorf Platz. It’s a lively neighbourhood and in great walking distance to some of our favourite places in the city.

1. do you read me

I did my homeowork before leaving and on top of my list was this really cool shop filled with magazines from all over the world. I wanted to stash up on different magazines, because they are either impossible to get in Denmark or way too expensive.

The place is über cool and filled from floor to ceiling with magazines. I could have stayed there for hours, just looking at all the different magazines.

Where: Auguststrasse 28, Berlin-Mitte

2. The Barn

Just around the corner from do you read me is the coffee shop The Barn. Unfortunately, we’d just eaten, when we got there, because the sandwiches looked delicious. So we just stopped by to buy coffee.

And if you’re interested in coffee this is the place to go. They are really passionately about their coffee, and you’ll get the best coffee experience there. When we got home, we enjoyed many nights drinking the coffee we bought at the Barn. Without doubt, we’ll return for more, the next time we’re in town.

3. Planet Modulor

This place is paradise on earth if you’re just a tiny bit creative. Imagine several floors of art and crafting supplies all wrapped up in one place. This will not be a short stay, I can tell you that.

We came there to look around this  amazing foodie shop/cafe, called coledampf’s and companies, because my husband had read great things about it, and he’s always looking for cool kitchen/cooking stuff. Again we’d just eaten, so it’s on our list of must eat places when we come back

Where: Prinzenstraße 85, close to Moritzplatz

4. Eat the world

The first time we came on a Eat the World tour was in Hamburg, and it was an amazing walk/experience. So we wanted to try it out in Berlin as well. It’s a fun way to get to know the small food places, and you get to know so much about the neighborhood.  We took the Kreutzberg Tour, and our daughter walked around the area for three hours, in the cold, not understanding one bit of what the guide said, but she loved it. A little foodie in the making.

5. Café Einstein Stammhaus

This was just around the corner from our apartment. Somehow we’d missed it the previous times we stayed there, but this time we walked over there to get our morning coffee and breakfast (and dinner one night). It’s a huge place, but very cozy. It’s a mix of locals, business meetings and turists. I like the fact that the locals come there to get a cup of coffee and meet with friends. We had the Früstück für zwei and a delicious yogurt topped with fresh fruit. The waiters are very friendly and you can relax and read magazines while you eat.

One night, after dinner, we just wanted to check out the bar. Just have a quick look. Our daughter was of course with us at the time, so we were going home. But the waiter was really nice, told us to come inside and see the gin room and the rum room. Joked that my daughter would have to wait a few more years before she could come back again. This is a must visit place, if you do not have a kid to tug in.

Where: Kurfürstenstraße 58

This guide turned out to be quite a foodie guide, I did not plan that in advance, but when I looked through all the pictures from the trip, these were the places, which I enjoyed the most. And in the end a girl has got to eat, in between her shopping. I hope you’ve enjoyed coming to Berlin with me.

Have a lovely day (and a Happy Mother’s day for all the mother’s out there)

This is me relaxing

Today is the last day of my vacation and I’m a bit hungover from a wedding yesterday. But I wanted to check in and show you my favourite pictures and memories of a relaxing summer – and it was much needed. So here are a few pictures from the past three weeks.

So tomorrow it’s back to work again. I’ll leave for Gothenburg early in the morning and stay there for three days and then return just in time to celebrate my boy’s birthday on Thursday. What I try not to think about too much is the fact that he’ll be starting kindergarden while I’m in Sweden. Thank God for an amazing husband.
