Overnight Oats

Posted on

Have you tried overnight oats already? I finally got around to preparing a jar last night and couldn’t wait to try it this morning. I was worried it was going to be too slimy for my taste, and even if there was a bit of sliminess (really selling this to you haha) it didn’t really bother me.

5 Vegan Foods I’m Excited About

Posted on

After watching a documentary called “Cowspiracy” (watch it and it might change your life too!) a few months ago I’ve been trying to eat less dairy and cook more vegan food. For a vegetarian who doesn’t really like fish and who’s been avoiding eggs due to Lana’s allergy, veganism isn’t really that huge a leap from where I was before.

Lana’s Moomin Birthday Cake

Posted on

I proudly present to you Lana’s first birthday cake – that I made myself! Must say I’m very pleased with it, especially since it was my first attempt at a fondant cake. We celebrated Lana’s first birthday yesterday, and the guests said it tasted nice too – although extremely sweet. 

Sugar Detox Survivor

Ok, so I made it through three days of no sugar whatsoever. Have to admit though that I did have some hummus with chickpeas (a legume) as well as a butter bean dip (also a legume). But I did stay away from the grains and starches, which was as I expected, the hardest part. 

3 Day Sugar Detox

Posted on

I have a serious sweet tooth and I would go as far as to say I have a sugar addiction. I love chocolate, sweet liquorice, salty liquorice, cakes, ice cream, sweets – you name it. If I buy a bag of sweets I can’t just eat a few and put the bag aside, no, I’ll eat the whole thing even though I know I’ll feel a bit sick afterwards. Maybe you recognise yourself as well?

Visiting Edinburgh Farmers’ Market

Posted on

Matthew’s taken Lana to see Nana and Pop, so I’m enjoying some me-time listening to Sigur Ros and blogging in my Moomin jammies – not a bad way to spend a Sunday! I even went for a run after fighting the urge to just go down to the shop and get some sweets instead – so glad I didn’t because I’ve got so much more energy now and I’ve come up with a least 4 new blog post ideas!

How To Make Karelian Pasties

Posted on

Since I’ve now successfully made traditional Karelian pasties one time and am therefore an expert I thought I might as well teach you guys too haha! The reason I’ve never made these delicious Finnish pies is that I’ve always thought them to be really tricky to make. Encouraged by my Jordanian friend (who actually made them before me!) I finally took the bull by the horns – and they turned out great! No, better than great actually!
