Last minute gift ideas for kids

As you might remember I have a little shop where I have gathered the things that I would love to buy for myself and the people I love. Today I have collected a few gift items for the little ones, if you fancy something a bit different from the usual plastic fantastic toys. Hope you enjoy:


I adore this selection and hope you'll find something here for the kids too. Not long now - my girls have their last day at school today - they are very excited about the weeks ahead. Happy Friday everyone x

Klejner - not just another Danish Christmas cookie

This is another recipe for the other cookies we baked on our Family baking day. They are called Klejner and is a traditional Danish cookie, although they are fried not baked.
I remember these well from when I was little, and how fun it was to twist these into shape, and see them boil in the hot oil. Do you have any specific recipes that you keep coming back to. This one is from my Dad's cookbook, but tweaked to perfection by him :)

This is what you will need:

25 g butter
50 g sugar
3 egg yolks
3-4 tbs cream
2 tbs cognac
250 g all purpose flour
Hot fat for frying

This is how you do

Mix the butter & sugar adding the egg yolks, cream, cognac and the flour last, making the dough soft and moist. Leave to chill for 1 hour.
Roll the dough on a lightly floured board, to 1/8 inch thickness and cut into strips about 1 1/4 inches wide, then cut the strips diagonally into diamond shapes about 3 1/2 inches long. Make a slash through the center of each with the a knife. Pull one end of the piece through the slash to form a small knot.
Heat your fat, and carefully drop the small knots into the hot fat, and remove when lightly brown. Leave to dry on paper towels. Serve and enjoy and keep the rest (if any) in an airtight container

Royal smushi café {Copenhagen corners}

If you ever visit Copenhagen, I would thoroughly recommend a visit to the Royal Smushi Café. The café is one of the prettiest places in town, and the coffee is great too. For lunch they serve the famous Danish 'Smørrebrød' (open-sandwiches) in bite sized bits of delight. And the best part is that pretty much all the ornaments and decorations are for sale too. Happy Monday lovely people, only 4 more days and then it's the holidays ......

House Doctor Spring 2015

Rather than giving you cookie overload, I opted for some lovely Spring images of the cool new stuff from House doctor. Today it's raining cats and dogs, and the sky is somewhat grey to say the least, so these images are the perfect tonic for a rainy day. Happy weekend everyone, hope you are getting into the swing of things, and getting prepared for Christmas. Only 1 more week until my girls are on their holidays - so I better get a move on....
