Little Desk

Sponsored post in collaboration with Lirumlarumleg We’ve been taking it very easy this weekend, both boys have been coughing (Max even got some fever) and I’ve been hit with another round of iridocyclitis (regnbuehindebetændelse)… safe to say we were all in need of some downtime, just staying indoors. I picked up some parcels on my way home from work Friday, I...
   

Autumn mood

  This is almost turning out to be a food blog… don’t worry – I didn’t intend to post this here but you made me do it, so I blame you. I love spending time in the kitchen but I’m not the best at making desserts – I’m more of the “shake and bake” kind of girl, ready-made doughs are definitely...

Pumpkin & Sweet potato soup

  Finally, it’s soup season. There’s nothing I love more than those tasty, heartwarming dishes when it’s chilly outside. They’re also super practical when you’ve got kids – easy to make and they can even be made in advance to heat up when needed. Since it’s Halloween and all, I wanted to make a pumpkin soup. This time I mixed...
   

A new favorite…

  So how awesome is it that I just got hit with a major cold right before I’m going back to work? JUST GREAT. I’m super grateful though that the kids are in kindergarten – hello restitution time! I get a little free time to take a warm bath, go back into bed, watch a couple episodes of House of...

A little mess

  We have entered the dark season here in Scandinavia, it is like there’s a grey fog everywhere during the daytime and not to mention how dark it is when we get up! Still now, at 9.30AM it’s just a really dull light that makes taking photos a proper challenge. I am trying to stay energized but I am missing the sun...
   

Banana chips

      I had some requests on posting the recipe for the banana chips I made the other day. It’s a great, healthy snack and super easy to make! Get the kids involved too, no sharp knives needed! Eat them as a snack or use them for topping your morning Müesli – you could even add a tiny sprinkle...

The end of an era and an exciting new beginning

  I’m on my last few days of maternity leave and I’m finally starting to get some time “on my own” – Maximilian is in kindergarten during the morning hours (8-12) and takes his first nap over there + lunch. We’re actually trying two naps today, so I’m pretty excited to see how he’ll do without me for so many...

Belly warming Coconut daal for the entire family

  We’re trying to make meals that suits the whole family (2 adults, a picky toddler and an 8 month old) these days – I just can’t keep up making different food for everyone (and there’s no reason to either) and also making sure that they’re all filling, nutritional and contain loads of flavour and texture to keep us going. These...
   

(My) Life with two kids

  I’m currently sitting in the staff-lounge at the kindergarten, waiting to pick up Max again after his first solo 30 minutes at “vuggestuen”. His first two days have been great (so far) and I’m so proud of my littlest. Also, knowing the kindergarten is great (his brother is in the same institution) makes me feel a ton more relaxed...

Let’s talk about Dukkah

  So maybe I’m way behind on this thing but I just discovered Dukkah the other day and wanted to share.. because really.. it’s THAT good! We went to Gló (a veggie/vegan place in the bottom floor of the shopping dept. store Magasin here in Copenhagen – recommended!) this weekend and had some lunch – I ordered a bowl of falafel...

Mini-makeover

  I’ve been a bit on the lazy side when it comes to blogging lately but that doesn’t mean I have been lazy in other aspects.. life gets really busy sometimes, I’m sure you understand. I’ve also made up my mind that I’m happy with checking in here and updating whenever I have the time or extra words that I...
