Nutty granola

Now that it’s a bit warmer outside I have exchanged my porridge breakfast to granola and yoghurt. Maybe it’s just me but I just can’t have a cold breakfast when it’s winter time. I think it has to do with growing up in Sweden and we would have some crazy cold winters so with a…

Seedlings everywhere

We have had some wonderful sunny weather lately which has given me lots of time in the garden. Of course it didn’t last as today was crazy windy and I had to close up my grow house again as it was shaking and I was scared it would get pulled apart. My dream for the…

Quick banana and date cookies

With everything that has been going on lately I have found myself in the house not doing much most days. While it has been nice to get a break, having two part time jobs before all this virus stuff started happening. And since I can’t work from home I have been on furlough. So apart…

Growing avocado tree from seed pt.2

I have noticed that my post from six months ago about growing avocado plants from a seed (see post here) has had a lot of views lately so I thought I would give a little update about how my plants are doing. I am happy to say that they are all thriving. I know it…

Almond and plum tart

I never used to be a big plum person, and then we moved to our house in Sweden when I was a teenager which had a plum tree in the garden. Funny enough our neighbor had one as well, whose branches would reach out onto our property. They were great neighbors and didn’t mind us…

Apple and cinnamon cookies

OK, so I have realized that I have neglected this website lately(juggling two jobs since September has not been the easiest) but that needs to stop. With everything that has been going on in the world,and the fact that I have days where I don’t have to go anywhere, I have had the chance to…

Chocolate and almond protein balls.

These chocolate and almond protein balls are very quick and easy to make and can be stored in the fridge for a quick grab and go if you are heading out and are feeling a bit peckish. One of the main reasons I love to bake is because I then know exactly what I have…

Blogging about baking!

While I wanted this to primarily be a gardening blog I do understand that I won’t always have something about gardening to blog about so I have decided to blog about my first passion as well and that is baking. While I most of the times have followed recipes in the past, and still do…

Growing avocado tree from seed

Now that the summer is over and I don’t have as much time to do anything in the garden for the time being (trying to balance two part-time jobs while looking for a full-time one while also trying to finish my studies has been absolutely draining to be honest) I decided to try my luck…

Wake up,work,eat,sleep……

Unfortunately I had to neglect the blog for a while. Life has kept me busy. Had an exam to prepare for, have also been taking driving lessons and had the theory exam to prepare for as well, very busy at work, also very busy trying to find other work as being a nanny is just…
