Marzipan Rum Logs aka Rum Balls

I love rum balls ( not too fond of the name though…); they are packed with chocolately rum goodness. But I hardly ever buy them and have never made them myself. That is until today. Here in Denmark we have, what we call tree logs. Basically they are rum balls formed as rolls/logs, covered with a layer of marzipan and each end dipped in dark chocolate – So delicious! And that’s exactly what I made today. I had seen another blogger make them a few weeks back, and that’s when I decided to give it a go myself. I changed the recipe a tiny bit, just because I had forgotten to buy enough dark chocolate and had some soft nut...

Cheddar & Bacon Popcorn

I found these popcorn a few months ago when I was browsing the isles of ‘Mad & Vin’- a supermarket in Magasin Copenhagen. It’s a high end supermarket and I love to go there every now and then. The price is of course also a bit ‘high end’ so it’s not a place I go grocery shopping, but rather go to find exclusive and rare products. And that’s exactly what I found the last time I was there.

These cookies are so yummy, they are sweet and a little chewy, and the cranberries add a little sour to the chocolates sweet. My parents and their friends really liked the cookies and my mum was still talking about them when she phoned me a few hours ago. The ingredients; 

Mixed tomatoes

I just love it when I on a random trip to the supermarket, stubble upon amazing and unusual fruits or vegetables. Hey, it’s the small things in life right? I found these mixed tomatoes in my local supermarket and just had to buy them. I’m sure that these tomatoes are normal in some countries, but here in Denmark, its fantastic to see something other than red plum or cherry tomatoes. I don’t know what I’ll use them for just yet, but whatever it will be, they look great in the kitchen till then.

Homemade hummus

  Last night, we finally made ​​hummus after talking about it for a long long time. Our mini food processor is unfortunately broken, so we used our big blender instead. Not optimal, but it did end up like hummus in the end. The ingredients;
