New recipe: Breakfast pancakes with berries



Happy New Year! I meant to share at least one Christmassy recipe in December, I even took the photo, but time flew by and I never finished setting up the blog entry. I'm making it up with a recipe shared today on Books & Latte: Breakfast pancakes with berries, which I serve with pure maple syrup (the ones in the photo have blueberries but sometimes I use raspberries).

New! Two soups and bread buns



Two years have passed since I updated this blog (hanging my head in shame). Believe it or not but yesterday I shared a recipe by a friend of mine on the Books & Latte blog: Zanzibar-inspired carrot and coconut soup. In January last year - again, hanging my head in shame - I shared two recipes in one blog post: bread buns with sesame seeds and turnip tomato soup with parsley. It so happens that the three recipes are vegan.

Those of you who still use this old blog have noticed that some images were missing. I don't know the reason why but an older album seems to have vanished. Yesterday I spent some time uploading part of the older photos. It's my intention to share one confectionery recipe before Christmas and perhaps another Christmassy one if I find the time.

New! Pizza buns, bean stew and raw cake



This year I will not win any awards for my efficiency in posting recipes on the blog, but since I last updated this blog I have, in fact, posted three recipes on Books & Latte. Yesterday it was pizza buns (yeast-free), in October curried bean stew with coconut milk, one of my favourite autumn and winter recipes, and this summer a wonderful raw (unbaked) cake that my kids love, walnut chocolate fudge cake with raspberries, recipe by Any Phyo.



The First Advent Sunday is almost upon us and I'm looking forward to it. On Sundays in December we enjoy an Advent brunch and before the first one our home looks moderately festive: small decorations, hyacinths and plenty of candles (we decorate the tree on the first or second weekend in December). This Sunday I serve, among others, Swedish braided bread with cardamom, a beloved recipe in our home that I put together last year. Here is a list of the Christmassy recipes you will find on Books & Latte:

chai latte (Indian tea)
meringue tops (and chocolate sauce)
quinoa pudding with Greek yoghurt, berries and fruit
rhubarb and strawberry crumble
rice and almond pudding (risalamande)
spice loaf / bread
Swedish braided bread with cardamom

And here are the Christmassy ones that are still here on the old blog:

Brussels sprouts w/chestnuts, bacon and parsley
chocolate chip cookies with almonds and oats
mashed sweet potatoes with pecan nuts

How about turning off those mobiles and enjoying the Advent with books, board games and cosy homes?!
