Homemade Lemonade

Summer and lemonade go hand in hand – at least in my mind. There are a few different ways of making your own lemonade. Today I chose to blend all ingredients, including the lemon peels, and then sieve it before serving. This way, you get a slightly creamier lemonade and a lot of extra taste from the lemon peel. It’s a recipe that I found on bbcgoodfood.co.uk Here’s what you need and what to do:

Oatmeal & 5-Grain Rolls -Proved Overnight

I love freshly baked bread in the morning. For Sillas’ Birthday breakfast I baked these rolls. I bade the dough the night before and let it prove overnight in the refrigerator. Then I simply got up, turn the oven on and formed the rolls, put them on a baking tray and bake in the oven for 25 minutes. These rolls are full of healthy grains and fiber oatmeal, so you can eat them with a clean conscience. 

A few things I Love -Right Now

So I’ve decided to add a new little feature to the blog; “ A few things I love, right now” Basically it’s a small list – with pictures of course – of anything that I like at this moment. It will be anything from food, beauty products to interior design, brands to restaurants. I will try and make a list each month. Uhh can’t wait to get started! What are some of the things you love right now?

Oatmeal-Cranberry Muffins

We have been trying to eat a bit healthier here for the past month or so. Oh but I do miss baking sweet desserts…a colorful batch of cupcakes, chocolates with gooey filling…yum. Oh well, that’s only for special occasions now. So instead I decided to bake a batch of oat muffins with dried cranberries for extra flavor.  I love oatmeal –cranberry cookies, and this is a nice variation.

Birthday Cake with marzipan and berries

We’ve had a few Internet issues, so I haven’t been able post anything here on Ambrosia, and I’ve missed it. I love my little blog. But now the Internet is working again and I’m ready with a yummy recipe – Birthday cake! It was Sillas Birthday this Wednesday and we had a few friends over for dinner. The Birthday boy chose the main course – gullash with mash potatoes, same choice as last year. I took a day off from the office and worked from home so I had plenty of time and to cook and bake all day long. After all a good gullash needs a few hours to simmer in all its goodness. Mine simmered for about 4...

Summer Salad with Watermelon and Feta Cheese

  Another day, another salad. And now that we have begun our salad adventure, I want to make sure that it’s interesting and varied salads we eat.  And this one is definitely interesting. I have heard of this salad for some time now, but since it’s not until recently that I began eating feta cheese, I have never thought about making it. But now its summer and I wanted to make a fresh salad full of flavor and crunch. It’s a lovely mix of sweet from the watermelon and salty, yet creamy form the feta cheese. And the mint is just yummy, it adds that little extra something that makes this salad great. -As something new ( with the help...
