this summer we had a staycation in the surroundings of stockholm when my mom and dad came to visit. we’ve been swimming like crazy. found this spot in lillsved where you could cliff jump….my dad and i took the stairs, the bear didn’t (of course). on the way there we had a pit stop at siggesta gård and it was so lovely inside, would like to go there for christmas time when it’s cold outside and you can cozy up in front of the fireplace. consumed a few ost mackar (cheese sandwich) in the shadow of the apple trees at vintervikens trädgård, remember i wrote about their farmers market here. also visited king karl gustaf and queen silvia at their summer house. found this really cute cafe ankarudden brygge at torö where we had chocolate cake and fruit pie…so good. avocado and bread after a swim near lövhagen. will say we’ve seen our fair share of this part of sweden this year and it was oh so great. went kayaking from lövhagen on another trip…but thats for another time.
vintervikens trädgård is a really cute trädgård where they serve food from their gardens and you can sit under the apple trees and enjoy a cup of coffee and cake. on sundays they have farmers market where you can buy eco, local grown veggies and fruit, bread, honey, juice and jam. really love this place. a must for me is their christmas market 7-8 december.
started to make my own granola bars. i found a great recipe at my new roots you can check out here. it’s a great snack in between meals, it really picks you up this hemp protein granola bar and when you make it yourself then you know what’s in it.
here we go exploring more of sthlm’s burger places. for now this is one of my favorites. so this is the #2 stop in the burger guide the svenska hamburgerköket. remember 1 stop at vigårda here. had grosshandlaren and it is for now one of the best burgers i have had here. straight up and simple, the meat is from swedish farmer who care and it’s minced at the restaurant, fries are served with cold béarnaise…so good! and prices are good. they also serve a serious milkshake with cherry on top and all.
pictures from the summer. made these tassel garlands for a birthday celebration and i kinda just left them up…it’s nice with some colour festiveness right! i also found these great tassel garlands at studiomucci at etsy, really loving these silver sand tassels. bear birthday celebration…home made cheesecake (double crust)…found this amazing recipe at cristal milk and will say it was a great success….decorated the cake with these cake topper flags i make…you can by them at my etsy shop very soon for now mostly knit. daffodils. home made pear/banana popsicles…free-styled this one. want to try out this popsicle recipe here…looks pretty fresh to me! sunny day and picnic with sausages, cold sweets potato salad, pea spread and home-made rugbrød…love my pastel star-wars container. tulips in lovely colours. ice cream from stikki nikki the flavours were: poppy seed pear, rhubarb and cookie and cream….not convinced about this place. been living in italy so guess its a bit ruined for me when it comes to gelato…i had avocado gelato in firenze and it’s still my favorite. elder flowers when blooming in my city..remember i made elderflower sirup here
my favorite supermarket in the us has to be whole foods and i guess they have it all…duck eggs and ostrich eggs comin right up. outdoor movie night at bryant park…watched count of monte cristo with a daffy duck start. a trip to the amazing american museum of natural history. a picture of my favorite breakfast spot marlow & sons the biscuit with scrambled egg and cheese and their frittata are my faves and next door diner for lovely dinners. wanna go cross-country in this one. babycakes and their amazing vegan cupcakes. east village radio and their humble radio studio, have been listening to chances with wolves for years and years. yogi by heart. self portrait. 401 where the bear used to work and a brooklyn bridge foto from dumbo. somewhere on my way to red hook. washington square park and a little summer cooling. moved to buswick at one point, loved hanging out at roberta’s. a picture of me and my mom.
road-trip to öland with a fabrique kardamumma-bulle and decaf from mellqvist. what a beautiful island. slept in our tiny one person tent, it was very cozy. a bakery sale with the best bread ever…even found a good danish rugbrød. morning coffee with a sea view. stumbled upon an old clog factory where i wanted to buy a pair but had no cash…still talking about those clogs. found a secret garden. fish and new potatoes.
so trying something new for breakfast. all winter a lot of porridge is eaten and i do love those oats…so found this raw porridge recipe also called bircher müsli and thought it’s perfect for summertime and hot weather. got inspired to make raw porridge at the food club (this is a danish food blog) but i also found a recipe here at green kitchen stories i’ll have to try soon. again i did a little alterations to the food clubs recipe. used oatmilk instead of soymilk and added some chopped walnuts and chia seeds. topped it off with fresh strawberries. will tell you this new take on the porridge was a success in my house.
