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. 

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.

Greek Yogurt dish for breakfast or for dessert

This is so simple, fresh and just yummy. I made it for myself last Saturday for dessert and then again when Sillas and I had it for breakfast Sunday morning. And it works perfect for either course. I used the mint syrup that I made last week. I don’t really know why, but it brings out the almonds flavor, it brilliant.  And the dish is so quick and easy that you could easily use it as a last minute dessert. You don’t have to just use blueberries, any berry will work.  Here’s what you need and what to do:

Buttermilk pancakes served with mascarpone cream

I love weekend mornings when I have nothing to do but create something yummy in the kitchen for Sillas and I. Having the time to cook or bake something delicious is the best. On Sunday I baked light and fluffy buttermilk pancakes and chocolate chip cookies. Instead of whipped cream for the pancakes, I made a little mascarpone cream spread. Lovely creamy and sweet. You don’t need a lot of ingredients for these pancakes and they are super easy to make. Perfect for Sunday mornings. Here’s the recipe for buttermilk pancakes;

Strawberry, Banana, Blueberry Milkshake

I treated myself to a homemade milkshake this afternoon. Since we had a few bananas and some blueberry sauce left over form the other day, they went in the blender along with a handful of frozen strawberries. I love how simple and yet so so delicious a milkshake is…summer in a glass! Ingredients;

Banana pancakes with blueberry skyr

Today’s breakfast was a really yummy one. I made banana pancakes. I wanted something to contrast the banana, which can be very rich, so I made blueberry skyr, which was nice and tangy. Skyr is an Icelandic cultured dairy product, similar to strained yogurt. It has a slightly sour dairy flavor, with a hint of residual sweetness. I found the pancake recipe on another blog, A Bitchin Kitchen, that I just discovered and now absolutely love. Lots of recipes that I cannot wait to try out! Here’s the recipe for banana pancakes and blueberry skyr Ingredients;

Homemade Focaccia Bread

I had a few friends over for another birthday dinner last night – hey it’s only your birthday once a year so why not stretch the celebration a bit. I served a bunch of small dishes, kind of like a tapas table. I’ll put all the recipes up the coming days. Today I’ll show you the largest dish; homemade focaccia bread. I’ve made it a few times now and it still surprises me just how much it rises and large it turns out. I love the texture and taste of this bread, it’s a little like a deep pan pizza. And fresh herbs always makes food better and tastier. Here’s what you need;

Lemon-ricotta pancakes with honey & vanilla almonds

Sillas tore his Achilles tendon a few weeks back, so I wanted to make him something special for breakfast on Saturday. I decided on these pancakes I have wanted to make for a while. They are lovely, light and taste delicious. Ingredients;

Brunch at The Blue Dog – aka Den Blå Hund, Frederiksberg

My parents were in town last week, so we decided to go out for brunch. I chose a café close to our apartment, a good 10-minute walk. Its called ‘Den Blå Hund’  – ‘The Blue Dog’. Its located on Godthåbsvej here on Frederiksberg, and I pass the café multiple times a week. Its always packed and people often sit outside at the small café tables. I have been there for dinner once before but never for brunch so I was quite excited. My mum and I chose their brunch plate and a café latte and my dad decided on a Jack Daniel’s Barbeque burger and a draft beer. The brunch plate consisted of;

Trip to Torvehallerne, Copenhagen

I was sitting at home this morning and looked out at the beautiful weather we have again today. The sun was out and it shone so beautifully into the living room. With nice weather like this, you can not just sit inside all day, so I wrote to Gry and asked if we just had to meet again and enjoy the weather.  Luckily should couldn’t agree more, so we met up at Torvehallerne for lunch. There are many good places to get a small bite to eat in Torvehallerne, but Gry and I always eat at Petit Pate. A cozy little booth where they serve really good rustic sandwiches, cold cut platters and wonderful olives. They also serve wine and...
