Tacos – is there a more popular dish? In Sweden ”taco Friday” has become a thing, and I think that like 50% of all Swedish families eat tacos on Fridays. Even if we aren’t eating tacos on Fridays, we eat tacos (or something similar) once a week for sure. It’s delicious, you eat a lot...

A couple of months ago I started to crave curry like crazy. I don’t know why it happened, but it did. We didn’t even have curry at home at that time. But I couldn’t stop thinking about it so I started to create new recipes in my head. When I had finally bought some curry...

Ever since I was about 14 years old and saw the documentary ”An Unconvenient Truth” for the first time (it was in chemistry class), climate change has been a very important topic for me. Back then I didn’t know much, I mostly put badges on my backpack that said ”stop climate change”. What a rebel...

Wow, what a couple of weeks it has been. Our baby boy joined us on the 26th of February and these three weeks have passed by in what felt like 10 minutes. Three weeks of feedings, diaper changes and cuddles on repeat...

We woke up to a clear blue sky today, and I must say it almost feels like spring. The snow is almost gone, the birds are chirping, and the air feels somewhat different. Spring is lovely, but on the other hand I love snow and those -15°C kind of days. I’m not done with winter just yet, I feel like I need a couple more weeks of cold weather to be ready for a new season. But no need to complain really, you can’t control the weather anyway.

Our bread baking Sundays continue! It’s only our second Sunday doing this, so I guess it’s too early to call it a routine just yet. But we’re getting there. Just a couple more weeks and baking will probably be a habit rather than a spontaneous activity for gloomy days. Besides baking, there hasn’t been…

There’s something very peaceful and relaxing about spending a Sunday afternoon baking goodies for the coming week. I can’t say that I do bake and meal prep every Sunday, but I really want to get better at it. Especially when it comes to baking. Unless you’re buying freshly baked bread from a bakery, you really can’t compare home made bread to store bought. The bread you make yourself has so much more taste, and you also decide exactly what’s in it (i.e. you don’t need to use additives or weird stuff).

Being 9+ months pregnant and getting closer and closer to due date, I feel like I’ve become more introvert than usual. I’m in my own bubble, focusing a lot on what’s to come - preparing, doing yoga, meditating and just relaxing. I’m also working hard to finish off a few things before the big day comes, like doing my accounting and sending away invoices. Simply making sure that all business related stuff are in order. My client work is done for now, and it feels great to not have any deadlines to worry about. With all this in mind, it’s probably not that surprising that I’m all in on simple recipes these days…

It’s snowing outside and the temperature is below zero degrees. It’s not even 2 pm, yet it’s so dark you have to turn the lights on. From October to March, a lot of Swedes complain about the weather and the darkness. Like, complaining 24/7. I get so frustrated each time I hear someone complain about these things, I mean, we can’t control the weather or the seasons, and why complain about something you cannot control? Embrace the seasons for what they are, life’s so much better with a positive attitude. Yes, you might need a little extra sleep during the darker months. Listen to your body and its needs. One thing I do know is that nothing gets better with a negative attitude.
