I QUIT SUGAR 8-WEEK PLAN (weeks 1 & 2 in review)

Hi all! Firstly, I apologise for neglecting to respond in good time to the lovely comments on my previous IQS post. Traveling, working and general “mama life” have prevented me from being here as much as I’d like at all. As those of you who have read my previous IQS-related posts will know, I own a […]

OUR FOOD REVOLUTION WEEK! (cooking with Poh, Jamie Oliver, Maximillian Lundin, friends & kids… phew!)

Hi lovelies! Hope you all had a fabulously foodie Food Revolution Day (or a good regular Friday the 16th of May, if you didn’t take part ;) ). I “cheated” a little again this year and celebrated FRD in numerous ways over multiple days (not that Jamie would mind, I am sure). My week began in a cooking […]

FROZEN BERRY JAM (no doubt the easiest, yummiest way to use up frozen berries!)

We are not only in the midst of a whirlwind of advent and pre-Christmas celebrations, moreover we are bracing ourselves for 3.5 months away and counting down the days until we leave. This means cleaning out our fridge and freezer, among many other things. I HATE to waste food and when I came across over […]

ROASTED CARROT SALAD (with cranberries, rucola & toasted almonds)

Advent is fast approaching (so is the snow, no doubt) and I wouldn’t normally associate this time of year with salad, however one look at the ingredients list of this delightful dish and I was hooked. Not only does this salad contain some of the yummiest seasonal ingredients, it also looks vibrant and festive and […]

“NICE” REFINED SUGAR-FREE APPLE PARSNIP GHOST & MUMMY CUPCAKES WITH “SLIGHTLY NAUGHTY” VEGAN BUTTERCREAM (plus Halloween/All Souls’ round-up with links to recipes & FREE templates!)

Halloween, Dia de los Muertos, All Hallows’ Eve, Alla helgons dag/All Saints’ Day… yes, it was a big weekend for many people around the world. Here in Sweden, the “American version” of Halloween is a relatively new celebration, and not one as yet embraced or understood by all Swedes. Case in point, my husband’s grandmother called from the […]

VEGAN PEANUT BUTTER CUPCAKES (with vegan chocolate ganache)

And just when I thought I wasn’t going to buy any more cookbooks until I’d cooked my way through those I already owned, I found myself browsing through amazon‘s collection… and I decided that two more couldn’t hurt my bookshelf ;). So I placed an order for Paul Hollywood’s How to Bake  and Vegan Cupcakes Take […]
