Here and now…ish

I am writing again. Journaling, letters, something that could turn into a novel - and here. All thanks to Julia Cameron's The Right To Write - or thanks to my friend A., who lent me TRTW? Or thanks to the book launch of another friend that made me want to write again? Or maybe thanks … Continue reading Here and now…ish


Let it grow

While we are spending more and more time dreaming about our new home, and especially the prospect of being closer to nature, we still do enjoy our balcony. Especially now that the plants are growing more and more, and you can see a change every day. … and I wonder how far they will make … Continue reading Let it grow

Recipes | Pesto fest

I am going to skip the part where I comment on the lack of postage around here … and go straight to the wonderful pesto I have made from the herbs we gathered at Törnagården. I looked up recipes online but I ended up playing it by ear for the most part. Basically, for pesto … Continue reading Recipes | Pesto fest

WWOOF | Törnagården

I'm back. It feels weird being in our apartment again after wwoofing a week on the country-side. At least it's finally green around here, too. This past week was amazing and inspiring in so many ways. Initially we had planned on staying with two, maybe three different wwoof hosts. We ended up staying at Törnagården … Continue reading WWOOF | Törnagården

Recipe – Almond milk

Like I said, this trip inspired me. A lot. Our friend eats raw food and while we were there, so did Peter and I. I found eating raw food surprisingly diversified, digestible and filling. That doesn't mean that I didn't feel like I had to eat a lot to feel full - but for me … Continue reading Recipe – Almond milk

Living the country life

I am back from another trip. More inspired than ever! I do apologize, though, to certain friends (Lisa, you know who you are) who worried my offline-ness might translate to "something bad happened". Note to self: in the time and age of "There is no offline, there is only away from keyboard", announce any awol … Continue reading Living the country life

Pizza buns

It has become sort of an institiution for me to make Swedish cinnamon buns when I visit anyone in Germany. But since my friends and I are meeting for dinner tonight (yes, you guessed right, this is a scheduled post - I am on the train to Frankfurt if you're reading this right when it … Continue reading Pizza buns

Recipe | Hazelnut almond muffins

I deviate from recipes a lot. But this time I went so far (not all on purpose … unforeseen turn of events demanded improvisation!) that I think it's fair to claim I made this one up. Kind of. It started out with wanting to try to make scones but substitute the flour for ground almonds … Continue reading Recipe | Hazelnut almond muffins

Junk food – for real 2

I did make those burgers for dinner today - with homemade BBQ sauce and hamburger dressing and all. Only the ketchup and the mayonnaise in the dressing were not made from scratch, even though there were recipes for that in the Junk food book. I hope you'll find it in your heart to forgive me … Continue reading Junk food – for real 2
