{Friday Five} Danish Kids Favourites

  Somewhere between my first and my second baby, I discovered my love for Danish design. Since we’d saved pretty much all our baby stuff the first time round, baby no.2 was fully equipped, which I took as an excuse to invest in a couple of additional high quality pieces, so he wouldn’t just have hand-me-downs.

Orange & Almond Cake (GF)

What better excuse than National Almond Day (yes, it’s a thing!) to share one of my favourite recipes with you! Almonds are great for gluten free baking, because recipe with ground almonds often don’t require flour as sell, eliminating the need for cumbersome substituting. This cake is a particular favourite, because it’s lovely and moist […] Read more…

5 Reasons I Fell Out of Love With Winter

I love Winter. I’m a cold weather person through and through. My unnecessarily large collection of knitwear and wooly hats will attest to that. And unlike most people I know, the prospect of months and months of subzero temperatures and the potential of snow does not fill me with dread. At least, that used to […] Read more…

You’ve Got Mail! DIY Mini Post Office

I’ve previously blogged about it on my museum blog, but I’m in the process of redesigning that and […] Read more…

Cranachan – our fave Scottish dessert

So, it’s Burns Night tomorrow! As true Scottish expats, we’ll of course be celebrating here in Berlin. And besides haggis, neeps and tatties, there’s one dish that will be an absolute ‘must’ on the menu – Cranachan! A dream of whipped mounds of cream, folded together with sweet raspberries, oodles of honey, a sprinkling of oatmeal, and […] Read more…

{Friday Five} My Favourite Mummy Beauty Products

As someone who is lucky enough to have been blessed with pretty good if somewhat sensitive skin, I’ve never been in to cosmetics much because I didn’t really need them. Though as I’ve gotten older, I’ve found my skin needing that little bit of extra TLC – and then there are those days when both kids […] Read more…

Homemade Flavoured Popcorn

Apparently it’s ‘National Popcorn Day’ today. I’m not entirely sure in which nation, but hey, any excuse to eat popcorn! And to share my favourite popcorn recipes with you. Because homemade popcorn definitely tastes best. We used to get those microwave bags, but honestly, it just doesn’t taste the same. And you don’t need a […] Read more…
