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!

Easy & Delicious Raw Cake

Posted on

During my Finnish summer adventure I got to try a delicious blueberry-coconut raw cake made by a good friend, and after having another raw cake the other week I finally decided to give it a go myself. It’s also the perfect choice for me as I don’t eat egg at the moment – plus it’s nice to be able to indulge after dinner without the guilt 🙂

Mmm, Strawberries!

Posted on

On my to do-list for this summer in Finland is to eat and pick as many berries as possible – including the queen of berries: strawberries. So to stick to my list we went to a farm near Porvoo (Uljaan tila) where you can pick your own strawberries and then pay by weight. 

Picking Berries

Posted on

I love all sorts of berries, and would happily eat them every day if they weren’t so expensive. So now when I can pick delicious and nutritious berries for free here in Finland I definitely want to make the most of it!

A Summer In Barcelona

Posted on

I started reading a book in Spanish the other day, and for some reason it got me reminiscing about the summer I spent in Barcelona with my friend – working in an Indian restaurant…So why not do a wee blog post about it?!

My First Afternoon Tea

Hello from a grey and cold Edinburgh! Still no summer in sight, so really hoping Finland will deliver instead in a couple of weeks when we go over…Anyway, I’ve had a very indulgent weekend with Afternoon Tea, fish and chips and sweets – and now I feel rubbish!
