A rainy day staple

For me that would be soup. I just love the comfort and warmth a soup offers... I know that I might have a strange relationship with food, but you can't really tell me that I'm wrong about that.

A winter and autumn favourite is pumpkin soup. So whenever I come across a new recipe for a hearty pumpkin soup, I try to put my own spin on it.

The following soup was inspired by Jamie Oliver (original recipe can be found in his newest book), especially when it came to seasoning.

But as always - I changed it a bit.

Red lentil soup.

Somehow S kept craving Asian food, but I could not even stand the smell, let alone all the flavours. So we skipped any food in that general food category.
But now, I don't mind so much... Don't talk to me about sweet/sour dishes, but I am fine with anything of the "curry-variety".

A while back I read this recipe for a spicy red lentil soup. I know that the recipe called for some coconut cream, but unfortunately I did not bookmark the page. And coconut cream makes a dish 'Asian-influenced' right?

Hello you :)
Thank you so much for sticking with me.
This is the longest I've been absent from this blog and I needed this time to get some priorities straight and deal with some major life changes.
Last September, actually two days after the last post, I found out that I was pregnant.
Though unexpected and completely unplanned the Mouseketeer is the best thing that happened to us.
We moved across the country to be a little closer to the grandparents (this was the long term plan anyhow) and enjoyed the first months with our Mouseketeer.
But now that I have the day somewhat figured out (with an 8 months old, there is no planning ahead) I really want to start this up again.

Thank you so so much for still being here.
And expect to see a post in the next days

Pumpkin Scones, a very good idea for fall

Sometimes I enjoy baking.
Yes, there I said it. I like beeing in the kitchen and just taking my time with a recipe. Try something new or different. And baking is right in that category. I am very slow when it comes to baking and I absolutely admire people who seem to be able to make a cake in no time.

I, on the other hand, have to google a lot. :)
For example, I had bought a small pumpkin and had no clue what to do with it. So I googled pumpkin recipes.
I had enough ideas for hearty recipes, but somehow a pumpkin pie sounded appealing. There is an abundance of recipes out there but most of them had a few things in common: cloves, cinnamon, sugar and pumpkin pureƩ.

Pumkin pureƩ... well... ok. That is easy to make. Cut the pumpkin in halves, take out the seeds, cover with tin foil and put in the oven for about an hour... or as long as it takes to soften it. Then blend it.


But while the pumpkin was roasting in the oven I decided to make pumpkin-scones. Because they are easy to prepare. There litteraly can't go anything wrong. And I had some success making blueberry-scones, once.
Sounds reasonable, right?
Turns out it was a good decision. Because were were invited to a brunch and I could just take them along.

Delicious Comfort Food

Creamy Gorgonzola-Pasta

As you probably know by now, I absolutely enjoy a fast pasta dish. This creamy sauce has comfort food written all over it and it tastes very 'Italian'... Another added bonus.
My brother and I loved this dish growing up, and ever since I moved out the Gorgonzola- sauce has been a 'lazy Dinner' staple in my kitchen. There is something to be said about an easily prepared dinner after an exhausting day, that is still very delicious.
