About

My friend Sara started two blogs (culinary/crafty blog & garden blog) recently which I enjoy reading very much, and she kind of talked me into doing the same ;o).  So I started a garden blog a couple days ago and now I want to start blogging about my culinary adventures. As a mom of 3 little children I’m extremely motivated to make food look good, so when I make something special for the kids or a holiday, I’ll post pictures and recipes of that here…

  1. You have 3 little ones … how on earth do you get time to make these fabulous creations? Are they three helpers?
    I can barely manage with one … she helps when there’s chocolate or sweet cake mixture involved😉

    • No, they don’t really want to help with kitchen things. But I must admit, being in the kitchen and cooking, baking etc. is my way to compensate for the stress. Sounds weird, I guess ;o).

  3. This is why I love risotto! So many varieties to try. Savory is my usual choice, but your sweet versions sound great and using the risotto for arancini is another creative approach. I highly recommend the salmon/watercress – and I’m glad you kept the recipe to try.
