Food and Travel
Until I was introduced to Jerusalem artichokes, I thought I could only enjoy artichokes in summer, when they are in season.
I am a tea person and drink at least one cup of tea on an almost daily basis. What is better than enjoying a warm cookie, or two, with a steaming cup?
We spent two lovely weeks hiking on the island of La Palma, one of the Canary Islands, also known as "la isla verde", and we arrived just in time for the almond blossom and it was more magnificent than I had imagined.
While waiting for winter to finally arrive, I decided to make one of my salads which can be served either in summer or in winter.

As December comes to a close, I take a moment to look back on this eventful year. There were memorable trips, delicious meals, tears and laughs.
Although I don't do much for breakfast during the week, on the weekend it's one of my favorite meals. I enjoy sitting down to a full spread of sweet and savory dishes.
Wishing you a holiday filled with love, joy and peace!
Once Advent rolls around, I start thinking about Christmas and, of course, cookies. I think I'm a traditionalist when it comes to Christmas baking.
The holidays are rolling around and in preparation for them, I made this fish soup which is in my second cookbook. It is inspired by a soup we had in Henningsvær, Norway a few years ago.
