One Drive kindly reminds me every day to look back at my memories and this was today's. Often I can recall either 'the what' or 'the why' I took a particular picture. This one however completely stumps me. I suspect I was making hollandaise sauce, although we could have been having steak tartare also. This... Continue Reading →

Monday mutterings # 04

More specifically - diet labels. I lost a bet whilst we were on holidays and the price I paid was cooking a week of vegan dinners. I've managed to surprise myself and am now embracing eating less meat. My recipe bank is filling with new recipes - it's so much more fun than following the same old... Continue Reading →

or Creamy cauliflower soup (in 20 minutes!) In August 2015, the food hall (Herkku) of Stockmann's department store introduced their 20 minute meals *. The idea is pretty simple, 3 recipes per week and one dedicated refrigerator & shelf with ALL of the ingredients you need to make these three dishes. The beauty of the recipes is that...

Mr. 17 is working very hard to convince us that a vegan diet is the way to go. Myself, I'm not so convinced, I am very fond of butter with my vegemite toast đź™‚ and let's not forget the world of cheese!

I'm not sure if it's the buckwheat flour that gives them a lovely grainy texture or because the batter uses yeast and yoghurt and sits for at least a day fermenting or is it the topping of delicate fish roe and thick sour cream with a...

A new (hopefully) regular posting on food - it might be what we're eating, or things we're not eating anymore or anything else food related that takes my fancy. As a parent I believe one of the most important roles we have is to ensure our children have the tools they need to face the world.... Continue Reading →

I made a bet that I was sure I was going to win. Namely that The Engineer would not utter anything in Thai whilst we were in Thailand. Mr. 17 bet against me. At stake - our dinner options for a week. I figured I was safe, and we would eat normally - a bit of... Continue Reading →

Counting the days!

Over the past couple of years, The Engineer and I have made an effort to eat out at least every second month. Small, cosy restaurants that are doing interesting things with food (and local food to boot) and wines that you can't find at Alko. Even when we are travelling within Finland, if there is...

Summer salad memories are made of …

... tomato and onion. One of my earliest summer meal memories is my grandmother's tomato and onion salad. The other main memory refers to my brother falling asleep face first into a plate of pickled beetroot. I'm pretty sure the tomato-onion salad featured at that table too! So back to the salad in question. This... Continue Reading →
