The Wedding

So it has been a really long time since we posted and I really hope we still have some of our old readers with us but it has been a crazy few months. I got married in July to the love of my life and it was by far the happiest day of my life and just the most perfect day in every possible way. Friends and family traveled from Australia, the US, the UK, Germany Denmark and from other parts of Sweden. Above is a sneak-peak of the big day.

We got married at Carlshällsgård, a fantastic location in Långholmen, Södermalm in Stockholm. My dress is from Theysken’s Theory and the groom’s suit is from J-Lindberg. All the flowers arrangements were created by the lovely Therese at Kaprifol (on Hornsgatan).

 

I hope you have all had a really lovely summer break (or winter if you are in the southern hemisphere).

Simple winter eating

DSC_1403

Since it is well and truly winter in Stockholm, here are some recipes perfect for such freezing days. Also perfect for a Monday because they require little to no preparation AND not too many pesky ingredients! Although the chickpea soup does need the chickpeas to be soaked the day before….so some foresight is needed but the soup itself takes minutes to prepare.

Chickpea Soup

Recipe: Goop

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dry chickpeas
  • 6 cups of water
  • 1 large white onion, chopped
  • 3 lemons, juiced
  • salt + pepper, to taste
  • drizzle of olive oil
  • bunch of cilantro to garnish

Read the further instructions here. Plus this is a Gwyneth Paltrow recipe so is of course super healthy (vegan/detox etc)…if you need any more motivation.

Carrot Soup with Miso and Sesames

Recipe: Smitten Kitchen

Deb Perelman of Smitten Kitchen is an absolute genius and if you haven’t already we suggest going to her site and spending a good few hours bookmarking some recipes! She has absolutely everything and writes instructions that are easy to follow (and also contain many hilarious anecdotes). Her carrot soup with miso and sesames is delicious and a little bit more exciting than your average soup. Plus, needs relatively few ingredients!

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 pounds (900 grams) carrots, peeled, thinly sliced
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 4 regular or 6 small garlic cloves, peeled and smashed
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped or grated ginger, or more to taste (it could easily be doubled)
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup white miso paste, or more to taste
  • 2 scallions (green onion/spring onion/shallot) very thinly sliced

Read the further instructions here. And finally, if soup is a little boring (or you have had way too much of it this winter) then here is the hot chocolate of all hot chocolates to try. Perfect for a relaxing Monday evening…

Spiked Hot Chocolate

Recipe: Because I’m Addicted

The day before Christmas

DSC_1209-2

Sorry that we have not been updating as regularly as we would have liked! We are both taking a bit of a break to spend time with family and do all those last minute christmas things. I ended up making more of those tiny cardboard christmas trees and I am really happy with them! Did any of you end up trying to make these at home?

Anyway, to combat the darkness in Stockholm right now I am burning all my favourite candles, drinking lots of christmas tea from Indiska, and reading a swedish novel today.

Hope you guys are enjoying your holidays and spending time with friends and family.
