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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Recipe – Almond milk

Note to self: in the time and age of "There is no offline, there is only away from keyboard", announce any awol [...]

Spring cleaning pt. 3

Mission completed! I did enough to be able to abandon this project, and show some after pictures that don't reveal everything I didn't do. Success! Oh yeah, and I tried out some more no poo methods which I now can recommend with a clean conscience.     I cleaned the stove according to this recipe: [...]

Spring cleaning pt. 2

Although I didn't get as far as I had hoped, I still got the chance to try out some no poo cleaning techniques - and can therefore make some actual recommendations: Oil and a mix of vinegar, water and lemon (roughly equal parts) turned out to be my best cleaning friends, I didn't use much [...]
