My favourite Fall feast


As I´ve stated before – I really, truly, and utterly love Fall! The colors, the smell of rain, the crisp feeling in the air, and of course – the possibility to finally flaunt all those gorgeous Fall outfits we´ve been dying to show off!

Also in the kitchen, I love taking advantage of the changing seasons – so what is better than mushrooms for Fall? My favourite is chanterelle, and ideally I would like to pick it myself. However, It´s not easy to find everywhere, so it you can´t pick it yourself, buy some.

For my Fall feast you need (for 2 persons):
About 0,5 liters of chantarelle
2 slices of your favourite bread
Butter, salt and pepper

It´s super easy peasy:

Fry the chanterelles on high heat until the liquid in the mushrooms disappear, then lover the heat so they don´t burn. Take a piece of butter (I love it – so I take quite a big piece of butter) and stir it into the mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper.

Take the bread and fry it gently in some oil in the pan, just until the bread turns crispy.

Put the chanterelles in the slice of bread – and enjoy!

Become a kitchen goddess


I´ve quite recently taken an interest in baking. I really love it! I’m not much for cooking – but luckily I’m married to a man with great cooking skills – I’m a lucky girl!

I like the baking because it makes me relax, I get to make yummy things for my family, and I can use my love for aesthetics. And speaking of aesthetics, of course every kitchen goddess need to look the part.

Therefore, today I’m going to show you some of my favorite aprons:

I wanted an apron in true Bree van de Kamp style:

And I found it:

Strawberry-Shortcake

This beautiful and oh so sweet apron is from Flirty Aprons – they have so many wonderful models, check it out!
They also have the sweetest aprons for kids – when my little girls is a bit older, she will get a true copy of my pink apron!

Also, I love this model – it’s sweet, fun and pretty! I see it as perfect for the times you have fancy dinners and have your dress on. If you need to wear an apron, what would be better than this one?

Green Gate, which I’ve already talked about several times, have such sweet nostalgic patterns:

And, look at this sweet model for your little princess:

greengate-forkle-child-apron-phoebe-mint

 

I bet she would love to help you in the kitchen in this apron!

In Leilas General Store, you’ll also find great aprons for both you and your little one:

Love this vintage pattern!

I recently found Madame Choup, and I adore their products. They almost look like dresses! This on is my favorite:

The cupcake pattern was perfect!

I hope you feel inspired to find the kitchen goddess within!

Friday Feast


This Friday Feast is a bloody one: I’ve already written a post about Halloween inspired food, but when i found this horrifying dish here, at this wonderful blog, I just had to make another:

How about some finger food for Halloween?

Start by making a pizza dough. Use your regular one, and if you don’t have a “regular” – look at this one.

Roll out the dough and cut one end to get the effect of a cut off finger. Place dough on a baking tray covered with baking paper. Brush the dough with lightly beaten egg. Press an almond or brazil nut on the end that nail. Sprinkle with poppy seeds or black sesame seeds or put dried rosemary in the dough as “hair”. Roll like a small “warts” with the dough and insert them in with eggs. Use tomato puree like blood. Fry until golden brown.

Keep your fingers in the freezer if they are not to be eaten immediately. Or let them dry out completely if you intend to use the more as decoration.

Happy weekend everyone!

Recipe greeting card DIY


My attraction to Autumn continues!

Yesterday I found the sweetest recipe greeting cards, which you very easily can make yourself, with the greeting and a lovely art print on one side, and a autumn inspired recipe on the other side. Isn’t that cute?

Choose between cards saying Happy B-day with a recipe for pumpkin cheesecake, Thank You with a recipe for upside down cake, or Congrats with a recipe for rustic apple tart.

Click on the link for your favourite card (or take all three!) download the file, and print out on your printer – it works best to use a bit thicker paper, or card board.

Now, find any excuse to send these to your loved ones for a little Autumn love!
