{Kitchen Staples} Caramel Sauce

When I visited Copenhagen last year, I had what was possibly the best porridge I’ve ever eaten outside of Scotland, at Grød in Torvehallerne (they also have locations elsewhere in the city). It was so good, I went back another day to eat exactly the same again. Ever since, I’ve been craving porridge for breakfast with apples, roast almonds and home made caramel sauce. Luckily, there’s something I could do about it – make some caramel sauce! Ingredients (makes about 300ml of sauce) 120g sugar […]

Adventures in Abendbrot #1

In Scotland, we always had our main, hot meal of the day in the evening, and something like sandwiches, salad or soup for lunch. In Germany, it’s quite customary to have your main meal at lunch time – I was one of the few people at work who brought in sandwiches, everyone else regularly went to a canteen or something similar for lunch – and to resort to ‘Abendbrot’ in the evenings, which literally translates as ‘evening bread’.

{DIY} Up-cycling daddy’s old shirt in to a doctor’s coat for dressing up

We’ve been doing a bit of Spring cleaning and decluttering, including purging our wardrobes. In the course of this, the husband tossed out an old shirt, and I thought it would be perfect for up-cycling in to a doctor’s coat for The Boy. Like most kids, he loves dressing up and his little doctor’s bag usually comes in to action at least once a week at the moment. Time for the perfect outfit to go with it. Here’s what I used: one old white shirt scissors pins […]

{Home Tour} Kitchen

After sharing pictures of Mr Fox’s baby bedroom corner, some of my readers asked if I would share some more of the rest of our apartment. That got me thinking what my favourite room in our apartment is, and it’s probably the kitchen. It’s not very big – in fact, we moved the dining table out in to the hall to have more space – but since I love cooking and baking I spend a lot of time there. It’s also one of the sunniest […]
