I love you like a fat kid loves cake

I do apologise for the lack of updates in the last week but I have been incredibly busy with work deadlines and being ill. Not a fun combination, I tell you!

Anyway, this post is basically just an excuse to post photographic evidence of the culinary delights I've somehow managed to squeeze in.

Last Sunday I had my friend Pia over for an afternoon in the name of craftiness and æbleskiver, which is a very Danish Christmas tradition. I know I said I wasn't going to give in yet but y'know, it's just cake and they were DAMN tasty if I do say so myself! And Pia certainly seems to think so...

Then yesterday we had some of Daniel's family over for lunch. Daniel made a delicious pasta dish with aubergine and tomato and I got up early and made ciabatta bread (no pics, sorry!) and a chocolate and raspberry cake. It's one of those cakes with no flour in it, just ground almonds and walnuts, mmm! I customised it by adding fresh raspberries before popping it in the oven and it turned out really well.

I am pretty confident in a kitchen but sometimes when I have a lot going on at work or in my life in general I am more likely to fuck up a recipe (which is one of the worst things I know) so I'm always pleased when something turns out particularly well. Unfortunately I completely forgot to take a picture of the cake while it was still whole and the picture of my slice below doesn't really do the cake justice, but here goes...


And finally today I made an awesome soup with chicken, noodles, spring onions and fresh herbs and it was delicious!


And the best thing is that I am still losing weight. That's the beauty of stress!


  1. yum, kan man ikke få opskriften på den nuddelsuppe??

  2. Jo, sagtens! Opskriften er faktisk fra Weight Watchers, og suppen smager genialt (og er selvfølgelig vildt fedtfattig).

    Jeg skriver den lige, når jeg kommer hjem!

  3. uhm, det lyder virkelig godt! glæder mig til at prøve det!

  4. Uhmmm...det ser dejligt ud. Den opskrift må jeg hellere selv prøve af.
