Need some more summer this year?

I can really recommend this favorite hide away from last year.

Cooking by the shoreline

When you go sailing you get chronically hungry. And out on the ocean, food tastes better than ever. Bad food however, will always taste crap – at sea and everywhere else. An easy rule to minimize conflicts on the boat: Only go sailing with people that know how to appreciate your efforts of putting good food on the table*.

Yup, it is me.

This week Esprit is launching their Fall Winter Campaign. The whole idea around the campaign is to feature women who are passionate about what they do.

You can read more about the campaign here.

When I had turned in my book I felt exactly this lack of creativity. It was a stressful last month leading up to the deadline. Adding 1,5 years of full-food-focus of making a cookbook; I was simply not in-the-mood to cook at all.

So I decided to take a break and have some juice.

Boat Bunnies 

Sailing demands clear roles and hierarchy.  “Boat Bunny” might sound like a degrading term, but really, if you ask me, every boat with self respect should have a Boat Bunny – someone that cares for the boat’s well being.

In former days it used to be a gallionsfigure, or ship head. This figure, carved out of wood in the front of the boat, was supposed to protect the ship from bad spirits.

The Perfect summer cafe

There are many small and pretty garden cafes along the coast is Småland. Well, there are many pretty garden cafes in Småland in general.  Often they are hidden behind walls and to enter them is like entering a secret garden with a “wow…”.

A perfect summer cafe should be a bit wild. You should feel invited to sit in the grass and lean your back on a tree reading a good book with your plate of cake next to you. This is the story of one of my favorite summer cafes. AND they are sharing their amazing cake recipe with us here!

Breakfast at the water

Breakfast down at the water, with a good book, is probably one of the most relaxing situations I can imagine. This one from 2010.

Purple Sourdough

Did you know that the walnuts color the dough purple if you add it early enough? I have love it, since 2010.
