I have written about a “poison” with great health benefits earlier. This new version came to be when I noticed that I have a spruce growing in my garden and I could collect the tips for later use.Continue reading “Health drink 2.”
Sausages and French fries
In my previous blog entry I said that quite a time has passed since I published the blog entry before this previous one. Time between those two entries was about four months. Now I was just about to write that quite a time had passed since the previous one… only to notice that I haven’t written anything in one and a half years! Continue reading “Sausages and French fries”
The unbearable difficulty of photographing
Few years ago I wrote on my blog site “About me” that my daughter gave me a camera – not brand new but much better than my old one. First I took pictures of dogs and fish, but finally got bored and turned to food – only to run into different kinds of problems. Believe it or not, food isn’t as easy to catch in photos as pug faces, although I thought otherwise. Pugs are running from one place to another and sometimes they are not very willing to pose, whereas food instead stays nicely on the plate without protesting either.

Few funny tales still left to tell. There must be tens of more, but one should always remember to write down them all immediately. Otherwise they just disappear, possibly for good. Continue reading “Little tales from my kitchen part 2.”

When making food with my new slow cooker it was just impossible not to bring to mind the old Finnish proverb “good things come to those who wait”. Simmering food on low temperature is an old tradition to which electrical slow cooker pots have brought a new dimension. Continue reading “Good things come to those who wait”
Food leftover delicacies
All kinds of half-used foods not to mention leftovers are generally found in the depths of anyone’s fridge, but there is no point to throw them away on the spot. Just like you sometimes do not use all parts of the ingredients needed for a dish, the remains can be worth using in other dishes. In other words, like the title says, you can make food leftover delicacies. Continue reading “Food leftover delicacies”
What, is it really edible!?
Coconut oil has been around for quite some time, but has never really been extensively used. My mother used to bake doughnuts in coconut oil and I have used it when making truffles but that’s all. Continue reading “What, is it really edible!?”
Quite a drink to keep you healthy
My stomach and I have not been living in perfect harmony during the past few years. I could hardly eat anything without looking like a balloon afterwards, not to mention the horrible pain in my stomach. It finally occurred to me that there was a possibility of a heightened immune response to gluten, my family has a history of coeliac disease after all. Continue reading “Quite a drink to keep you healthy”
My daughter’s vegetable garden eats my heart out!
In mom’s vegetable garden
Under a rhubarb leaf
Frog had a home
Carpet made of grass
Leaf roof over his head
Walls green and red… Continue reading “My daughter’s vegetable garden eats my heart out!”
