24 DAYS OF HAPPY, HEALTHY CELEBRATION (cut the stress, get organised & eat deliciously balanced this Christmas)

As I count down to my first Christmas as a mother of 3 in a brand new home that’s barely 1/3 in order, I am simultaneously overjoyed at how blessed I am and, frankly, a little overwhelmed by the sheer enormity of keeping 3 little ones (and myself) in festive mode throughout the month of December.

SLOW-GRILLED ZUCCHINI, a recipe + Sweden’s first vegan cruise menu (this just the start[er])

On the 29th of September I had the pleasure of attending the official launch and tasting of the swanky (and ground-breaking) Birka Cruise vegan menu; purportedly the first vegan cruise menu of any of the Swedish pleasure cruise services. If you live in Sweden, you are no doubt familiar with shorter pleasure cruises, and M/S Birka is […]

GREEN KITCHEN STORIES SUPPERCLUB AT URBAN DELI

An alternative name for this post could well be “We came, we ate, we listened/chatted/enjoyed!”, as this pretty much sums up my experience of meeting for the first time both the couple behind the incomparable Green Kitchen Stories, David and Luise, and Sara, the bento design queen of London (known in blog & Instagram circles as shisodelicious). After […]

CINNAMON & WALNUT BUNS (a vegan, refined sugar-free take on the Swedish Classic)

And I am back with another belated recipe share! This time it’s the Swedish fika favourite: cinnamon buns. But these are not made of the same buttery dough as the original, more commonly known kind. In fact, they are dairy-free. And if that’s not enough of a departure from the classic variety, these ones are also refined sugar-free. […]

FAMILY VACATIONING ON THE MAKARSKA RIVIERA (with a recipe + tips for eating well veg-style & travelling with young children)

We recently returned from a wonderful two weeks in sunny, friendly Croatia. It was my third time there, but my first with the children, and the bulk of this post will cover various experiences we had. But I’ll kick things off with a recipe for those of you who may only be interested in 1) how we self-catered […]

50 THINGS ABOUT ME (part 1)

In all the time I have been active in the blogosphere, I have never done a ‘things about me’ post, let alone a ‘5o things about me’ post (though I have shared quite a few random facts via Instagram post captions 😛 ). However I thought it was an opportune time to take the plunge and do so […]

ACAI & BERRY PORRIDGE BOWL

This acai-boosted porridge bowl is a variation on my standard blueberry overnight oats. I used to tote overnight oats to the office in a mason jar before going on maternity leave. They were my go-to pregnancy breakfast option and toting was convenient, but I can assure you my shaken-around-oats-in-a-jar never looked pretty by the time I sat […]

BAKED APPLE PIE SPRING ROLLS

This classic apple pie flavoured version of my dessert spring rolls is sure to please, regardless of the climate you happen to find yourself in right now. If you’re currently enjoying the warmth of summer, I recommend serving these with ice-cream (we had the exact spring rolls pictured with tofu vanilla ice-cream). And if you’re trying to stay cosy as […]

BAKED SWEET SPRING ROLLS WITH CREAMY EGG-FREE CUSTARD (plant-based & IQS-friendly)

I couldn’t possibly let Swedish midsummer go by without baking something seasonally appropriate. A few months ago I started making these baked spring rolls in an attempt to use up some extra filo pastry. They were an instant hit with hubby and kids alike. They’ve since made an appearance on the table at several celebrations (including […]

HOMEMADE MULTI-SEED CRACKERS (my mother-in-law’s dairy/gluten-free “secret” recipe!)

I received many requests for this recipe when I first shared these crackers on Instagram, but I had to secure the go-ahead from my mother-in-law before sharing. Well, just in time for Swedish midsummer picnic time, here it is… and I promise that you will not regret giving this recipe a go! A few years ago, my […]
