When a friend invited me to a picnic, I wanted to bake something easy, filling but light at the same time and something salty this time. So I baked this lovely zucchini pie since I cannot get enough of zucchini this year.
The first time I had that soup was at a school lunch in Ravintola Arabianranta. It was delicious and I was surprised to have such good food in that restaurant, which usually serves quite unidentifiable food.
I looked everywhere for this salad. I wanted to have a colourful salad made out of only raw ingredients. I would have a green and yellow salad with a touch of red. I had zucchini and tomato so I looked everywhere for summer squash. None. I guess summer squash is as late as summer in the North.
Ever since I baked Rachel Khoo’s savoury cake, I’ve been crazy about making other combinations. I realised that keeping the cake batter the same, you can make many different cakes just changing the other ingredients.
I had to do it. When Germany won the game against Brazil on Tuesday, I had to bake pretzels the next day. But what a game it was!
Lemon and butter.. Lemon, and, butter.. LEMON AND BUTTER! Perfect combination for a little cake!
It’s official: Arctic char is a fantastic fish with absolutely delicious taste in any form of cooking. It is also one of the most stylish fish with the little pink polka dots on its skin.
A few weeks ago, I met my friends Anja (German), Gaspar (Argentinian) and Aneta (Bulgarian) in this little place called Soi Soi Kasvisravintola to have a vegetarian evening on Vaasankatu. We ended up eating, yes, but it was a bit like fighting with the food!
Sunday lunch with family. This is what I miss. Everyone gathering around our table, having lunch and staying around the table for hours. This is what I miss. My mother, cooking. This is what I miss, the most.
A few weeks ago, I woke up on a Sunday morning with a very nice hangover. I could barely open my eyes, had a huge headache and my stomach desperately needed something spicy and rather greasy. I would either go to the nearest Hesburger and buy the greasiest thing in the menu, or I would create something from my fridge. Fortunately, I chose the second option.
