Remember Rosemary!

I am a great fan of the smell and taste of rosemary. It’s such a kick ass herb. And I’m lucky enough to have a chance to use it all year long. It’s an evergreen plant, native to the Mediteranian region, with a unique pine-like flavour and aroma that make it a good complement for […]

SOUPer good!

There is something so comforting about homemade soup. I love building layers of flavour and tasting as it all comes together. Try this delicious creamy avocado soup on a cold winter day and it may become a staple in your kitchen too. Surprise. This rich, velvety soup contains no cream or milk. Forget any avocado […]

Little hands. Big skills!

Food is a hot topic right now. Western societies have embraced current food movements. Local, organic and foodie are some of the biggest buzzwords of this century. But what about cooking? Is this a trend? And cooking with kids – is this happening? When kids learn to prepare food themselves, they gain life skills, experience […]

The beating of my heart

I adore the farmer’s market and the flea market, feeding friends and all of those cheerful things. Living is a humble thing. Cooking is a devine, ancient art. It is the elevation of biological necessity. It is the beating of my heart. It is broccoli and cauliflower. I like sharp knives. I like simplicity. I […]

Fresh or dry

The name oregano comes from the Greek, meaning ‘joy of the mountains’. I can easily imagine an ancient Greek shepherd with a bunch of sheep, picking springs of oregano leaves from a woody bush on a rocky hillside. Fresh oregano has a robust, woodsy flavour that makes it one of my go-to herbs in the […]

I saw red

Imagine your salad in a restaurant. Now picture the salad without the lettuce, cucumber and radish. Is it a little pile of cheese or carrot shavings and some corn? More or less. Great salads don’t have to contain leafy greens, though. In fact, sometimes they don’t contain any greens at all. This roasted beet sweet […]

Let’s talk turmeric

We have to remember, wellbeing doesn’t exist in a vacuum. Our lives are complex webs woven of our bodies, the environment, the compounds we eat, the thoughts we think, the people in our lives, what we spend our days doing. I’ve been drinking a turmeric, black pepper, honey, lemon and ginger potion almost every day […]

If you want to impress your guests, this is a fail-safe way to go. Jut pick your favourite fresh vegetable, hollow it out, and stuff […]

Chop chop chop

Most savory recipes begin with a chopped onion, minced herbs or garlic. You have to either mince, fine chop or dice, medium chop or large chop your vegetables. Occasionally they will call for chunks. This is usually reserved for when the vegetables need to be in quite large pieces, such as for stock. So when […]

Heat your oils up

Oil is the first thing to kiss a pan in most of the dishes so you gotta choose wisely. When it comes to cooking and baking, not all oils are created equal. Some are better for cooking low and slow while some like it screaming hot. Once upon a time, cooking oil in an average […]

One spoon at a time

Growing up, my mom was very, very into soups and stews, among other beautiful meals that came from her kitchen. She’d make them all year long, whether it was burning hot or freezing cold outside. Some days I’d be sweating into my plate and others I’d be using it for warmth. At the time, I […]

Means the world to me

I always had second thoughts about creating my own page. I had no idea how to go about it, how to write a recipe (solved that problem by drawing them) or even dream up enough content to keep things interesting. Not to mention there were already so many awesome sites out there dedicated to cooking. […]

Down to earth

How are your new year resolutions going? I kinda stopped making them a while ago. Got my own little habits now. Some are glorious.  Most of them are not. I love routine. Love it! There’s an odd amount of freedom in it. Here’s a diplomatic end of January meal for all of you. The ones […]

Tiny green munch

I adore brussels sprouts. It is quite possible you find them one of hopeless vegetables. They have a bad reputation because they are always served in the same boring way. Please don’t boil them. Ever. You will regret it when the smell of them overcooking invades your house and your memory. It will ruin everything. […]

Ultimate stress fighters

There are times certain foods and drinks help us in ways we didn’t even know about. When stressed you can feel the need to overeat on junk food, which isn’t always the best option. Adaptogens help your body adapt to biological and psychological stress and make it easier to balance your hormonal systems. In India […]

No more dark food days

There’s no theory to explain why we’ve chosen to eat processed food over home-prepared nutritious marvels. We accepted the concept of eating shit because we honestly thought that’s the way dishes are supposed to be. We didn’t bother learning how to cook for ourselves. We realised that we don’t have enough budget to do so. […]

Piece of cake in a glass

Ok now, where is the cake? In most other countries this would be called a trifle or a parfait, but in Denmark they call this an old-fashioned apple cake. It’s made of smooth apple sauce topped with whipped cream and it is one of the best deserts out there. I have actually changed quite a few things from the […]

Cook from scratch and REPeat

I think it is more of an awareness of knowing where your food comes from. The farmers understand it. They have been doing this for years. They got it! Reteaching old habits seems to be the toughest part. On the other side of the table people truly want to know where their food is coming […]

Instead, it’s about finding a handful of simple time-effective recipes that can be practiced on a daily basis. It’s […]

Rice rice baby

Rice. The staff of life for nearly all of Asia. So pure in its snowy simplicity, yet so complex in its cultivation. Rice is at least seven to ten thousand years old. From its birth up to today there was a continuous process of improvement in growing this crop. Although it is mostly connected with […]

Couscous for the couscous haters

I know quite a few people who hate couscous. Even the word itself is strange. Me, on the other hand, always keep making it just ‘cause it goes well with almost everything. There’s always a pack of that instant gold to be found in my kitchen. Foodies will scream: i-n-s-t-a-n-t. Yeah, instant.

From drowsiness after a hardcore meal to the jittery caffeine buzz, what we put inside our machine has a serious effect on how we feel. Good thing we can make choices and eat food that will boost our mood and go low on the ones that leave us cranky and irritated.
