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!
Where to find the recipes:
Roasted veggie pitas with avocado dip
Delicious mini snacks on bread
Grilled sweet potatos with mint
Bacon wrapped grilled peaches with balsamic glaze
Strawberry Avocado Spinach salad with poppyseed dressing
These gorgeous looking chickpea pizzas (it’s in Danish)
Creamy potato stacks with garlic, thyme and parmesan
Green lachuch with a fried egg, herbs and cheese
A mix of everything good just like this picture
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 my husband and I have invited my whole family for Easter lunch.
Since my grandfather passed away last Christmas, I wanted the whole family to get together even more. We’re the only ones left, and I want us to stay close and be in each others lives. Not a day goes by where I don’t think about my grandfather – I miss him so much – but this way I know he and my grandmother would be proud.
I’m trying to plan which dishes to make, but I’ve still got a long way to go. Instead I started looking at DIY projects for Easter. I know the kids will love making hama bunny’s and decorate Easter eggs.
I’ve collected some of my favourite Easter DIY projects. I hope you and your family will have a fun time while making decorations for the Easter table.
For more Easter inspiration you can always visit my Easter board on Pinterest. I’ll collect many more ideas there in the coming days. So stay tuned for even more Easter fun.

Yesterday, I finished the course in Online Marketing. I aced the exam, and I’m now ready to go out there and use all the knowledge. The course was amazing, and I’m ready for another round, if they ever do a Online Marketing Part 2. Finishing the course also means that I’ll be blogging more regularly again. I’ve got some really interesting things coming up.
Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve collected a few interesting ideas and links. I want to share some of then with you today.
First up is a small DIY project – I love this beads coaster. Fall is also all about curling up inside with a good book or a magazine. The new issue of Brygg Magasin is on its way, and I cannot wait to read it. I’ve also been reading these wise words on Paulo Coelho’s blog lately. I was inspired by this hair do, and will try it this fall, if I can resist the urge of getting my hair cut. On my list of things to cook in the near future are this polenta dish and this sweet potato dish.
