Do you turn on the oven without thinking? I mean, would you heat up your oven to cook a single dish? I admit that I do sometimes. Eek! Let's not dwell too much on the energy we're wasting and, more importantly, what it's costing... ;D One of the best memories from my childhood was baking… Continue reading Fill ‘er up!
Those Crazy Danes or Dianes?
Before we got our swanky new kitchen (you do remember our kitchen remodel at the end of last year, don't you...all three months of it?) - at which point my entire collection of kitsch fridge magnets were henceforth banished to a sedate, lonely life on the door of the ancient extra fridge in the basement - I used to have this on permanent… Continue reading Those Crazy Danes or Dianes?
Like Mother Like Daughter
DD7 turns 8 tomorrow. I know it's the most clichéd thing to say but...really, where does the time go? What happened to my little baby?Here's a picture of her,taken at Danish nursery when she was about 5 years old.Sometimes DD7 drives me nuts. (Though, thankfully, we left the screaming stage a couple of years ago.) A lot of… Continue reading Like Mother Like Daughter
There's been a lot of talk amongst my twisters (Twitter sisters) about soups recently. Not really a surprise with the 'postcard' winter weather we've been having from London to Copenhagen to Iowa. Here's one of my own favourite family soups, my Mum's minestrone. She always makes it in her pressure cooker - I always make… Continue reading Mum’s Minestrone
Watch this Wednesday
I watched a great film yesterday. Just my sense of humour. A very dark British comedy set in Wales about two competing undertakers. One, the hero is played by Alfred Molina, the other is played by Christopher Walken, wearing a fantastic bouffant wig. A must see. Also stars Brenda Blethyn, Miriam Margoyles, Lee Evans and lots… Continue reading Watch this Wednesday
Copenhagen Kitchen – week 6
Today's post is a bit of a cheat because there is no news as such on the kitchen remodel - aside from the fact that things are going swimmingly and the painter is now hard at work - because we have 'escaped' to Edinburgh for a few days! 🙂 It's the school's autumn week and… Continue reading Copenhagen Kitchen – week 6
These are a few of my favourite things (Cookbooks)
Decided to make Friday a day for sharing a few of my favourite things. And - as regular readers of this blog are already aware - my mind is full of our kitchen remodel at the moment - so today's post is going to be about cookbooks 😉 I've got a shelf full of them… Continue reading These are a few of my favourite things (Cookbooks)
Now if the title of today's blogpost is familiar to you, then come on in... we're going to be bosom buddies! Even if my 'fronts' aren't too full... 😉 I've been watching the film "Thoroughly Modern Millie" since I was a child. Watched it on the telly with my Mum (also a fan), taped it… Continue reading Raaaaspberries!
Fail me never…
A have a small, red folder of recipes that I collected as a child. Cuttings from magazines (all cakes and biscuits!!), recipes from Home Economics classes at school and - the ones I now find most intriguing - recipes my Mum wrote down on the back of envelopes or notepaper from the office, or was… Continue reading Fail me never…
