Pancake Day!

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
It is Shrove Tuesday here in the UK today, which means P A N C A K E  D A Y ! Highlight of the year in this house, even though we have pancakes throughout the year. It is one of the simple pleasures in life, pancakes. The smiles on the kids face when they can smell pancakes from the kitchen is priceless. Here is an easy Pancake recipe for you to  try.

110g plain flour
Pinch of salt
2 eggs
200ml  milk mix it with 75ml water 
(This is the secret I learned from mum, it makes them slightly crispy at the edges)
Butter for the for pan

If you would like a slightly sweet pancake add some sugar and vanilla essence.

Simply mix the dry ingredients, add the wet and mix. 
Let it stand to rest for about 20 min.
Heat up a frying pan add some butter before each pancake and cook as thin pancakes as you can.

Serve with what you desire. 
In this house it is either blueberry jam or lemon and sugar.
Y U M!


Till next time, take care.

Simple Life at a Stocholm apartment.

Its Monday, its spring and we are planning to make life a bit simple this week. Have a lot to do, many ideas in my head, therefor it is important not to complicate things. I think if you live in an apartment like this one in Stockholm, photographed by the lovely and talented Line Klein, it would help you on the way of keeping things simple. 

Keep it simple in a white home, just add a few accessories in wood and black.  Here are a couple of suggestions from House Doctor that you can find in the White Punch Shop

Till next time, take care.

1st of March. Yes!

After a stormy rainy winter here in the UK, it is lovely to wake up this Saturday morning and noticing on our big wall clock in the kitchen that it is the 1st of March! I love all the different seasons and in spring it is natural to look for lighter days and lighter colours in your home. These beautiful pendants from Northern Lighting caught my eye this morning while browsing Pinterest. The Bell series, which is designed by Mark Braun, consists of shiny porcelain pendant lights and celebrates porcelain as a substance and showcases its glossy and glazed qualities. I really like the simple design and how the coloured outer surface contrast the pure white porcelain on the inside. Perfect for spring I think.

Till next time, take care.
