What to eat when hiking

roslagsleden
There’s something about fresh air that just increases one’s appetite! I guess it’s also because I’m expending alot of energy on my hikes. Fortunately, this time it was only 15km – the first stage of Roslagsleden. Now what to bring that has little weight but will give you a lot...

Meaning of life – food!

By: | 0 Comments | On: May 3, 2012 | Category : General, Musings

Food plays such a big part of my life. We were talking at a get-together and I was surprised to hear that not everyone dreams about food! Why not? OK, we can’t choose what we get to dream about but I just thought it’s normal to dream about food! I...

Our kitchen being held hostage by the workmen

By: | 0 Comments | On: April 24, 2012 | Category : Musings

Yes, it took a long time but our kitchen is almost finished! 6 weeks of eating out (very expensive) or eating microwaveable food (boring). We couldn’t agree on a colour for the accent wall so it became something extremely bright – neon green!!! I must say that with this experience...

stroopwafel - caramel cookie waffles
Yep, this is my bucket list of things I’d like to learn to make before the powers-that-be take over! Suffering from a head cold and all I can think about is comfort food! I want some congee (rice soup for all you uninitiated)!   1. Stroopwafels or caramel cookie waffles....

spring rolls
Too much eggs can be harmful… Our alternative Swedish Easter was a Chinese feast with spring rolls,  3-cup chicken, stir fry cabbage and eggs, and an avocado pie (recipes to come)! I know I know – what’s with all the avocados lately? Well, I bought them cheap 2 weeks ago...

Tweak #3 of our chili recipe

By: | 0 Comments | On: March 23, 2012 | Category : Contest, Mexican, Musings, Savories

I wrote yesterday that the fusion chili was funky. One day later and it has really developed into something special. Unfortunately, hubby doesn’t like it at all! For the third and last tweak, we’re going traditional! We’ve always added our own twist to a recipe so it has never been...

Tweak #2 of our chili recipe

By: | 0 Comments | On: March 22, 2012 | Category : Contest, Mexican, Musings, Savories

First off, the first tweak didn’t develop in taste as I had hoped. The flavours were much weaker one day later and I’m not talking about the heat. I suspect that we were too ravenous last night and allowed our stomachs to discern the taste which of course is totally...

Chili on my mind

By: | 0 Comments | On: March 19, 2012 | Category : Contest, Mexican, Musings, Savories

…in my head, on my body, in my tastebuds, nothing but chilis. I’m really scared now! I should have listened to hubby! He was wondering why I was always going off on wild adventures and half-baked schemes. But this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and I have to do this, if...
