The other day I felt like making the wonderful orange cake which I made before Christmas. It was dense but succulent and was from a recipe on Elana’s website. Unfortunately, I was too lazy to grease up a 9″ pan so I just made orange muffins instead and they went like a house on fire. Think I might have one left downstairs.
Or, well, it wont be there much longer…

Just look at those colours - and the light!

As I have lived in London for over seven years now, I feel I am out of touch with most subjects relating to Sweden. I feel Swedish in so many ways, but yet know so little of life there. As my sister pointed out, it is because I lived in London during my “critical years”, from the age of 20 and much has changed since then.
About a third of the blogs I read come are Swedish, a way to keep up the Swedish but also to keep a jour with important topics (especially election) as I feel many of the Swedish newspapers mostly just gossip.

Many of the blogs are interesting to read because of the fashion or the “Swedishness “ of the people writing them and one blog I love more than the others is the one of UnderbaraClara. She lives up north in Sweden, away from the hustle and bustle of the big cities and writes about life, baking and everything in between. I absolutely adore her (and her husband’s) “new” kitchen and wish that one day I will be able to get a more “Swedishy” kitchen. One of these days…

A shelf like this would be perfect for all my cookbooks!
