Bright Yellow Fruit Salad

I like yellow. Not mellow yellow, but the bright sunshiny kind. It’s irresistible! Like fruit salad. Also irresistible. Plus, easy to make. Just chop any fruit up, mix together in a bowl and eat.

This year I have decided to share the recipe here on my blog. It is because of Pam’s International Winter Holiday Cookie Recipe Swap (love the festive name!), […]

Pad-thai with tofu

In a food mood today, so I snapped these photos of what I made for dinner. It’s a vegetarian Thai dish, often found at street corners in Thailand for a few bats. It’s my favorite. When I found the recipe in the most recent IKEA Family (page 76) magazine I knew I had to make […]

Lemonade or as we say blandsaft

Mom has made red lemonade from a mix of red berries. We call it blandsaft, which means mixed fruit lemonade. I’ve designed the labels in Adobe InDesign and printed them on sticker paper that we cut out. Summer is the time to fill up the well for winter, both in the food cellar and the […]
