Aaaand I’m back with a Spiced Plum Cake!

Spiced Plum Cake

It's high time I got back into the swing of things. Months have passed and I've made only two mediocre updates. I haven't even been cooking or baking that much, but that's changing starting from now! Christmas is coming, and before that in just a week from now it's my birthday. The perfect time of year to get busy and flex one's baking muscle! For today's post I have made a spiced plum cake after finding some cheap organic plums for just 5kr. They were from Sweden, and I have no idea how they grew plums at this time of year, but they weren't that special  - a bit hard and not very juicy - so baking with them was a perfect idea. I think I'll give Swedish gingerbread a go this year, or maybe some aniseed pigs, or maybe both. Of course, I'm choosing the worst possible time of the year to make a "comeback".

Physalis and Green Tea Jam and a Giveaway

I've never cooked with physalis (is that the plural?) before, and come to think of it I've never cooked with green tea either, so making this gave me a great chance to flex my culinary muscle, and while making jam isn't really "thinking outside the box", the physalis and green tea jam was ...

Organic tasties from Loppi

I couldn't possibly say that this applies only to people with kids, because that's just simply not true, but when you "all of a sudden" do have another little mouth to feed it gives you pause for thought. "What am I actually putting into my body? What are we actually putting into our child's body?". ...
