GIFTED | Hygge is a Danish concept with many meanings and no exact translation in English. To some, hygge can be a sense of coziness such as sitting in front of the fire and enjoying a cup of tea while the weather outside is frightful. Hygge can be used to describe a sense of joy such as when you are together with your friends and family and enjoying a lovely dinner. Hygge can also be used to describe a sense of well-being for instance when you practice self-care and slow down to appreciate the little things. Whichever way you want to promote a hygge lifestyle, I created a gift guide for your friends and family featuring hyggligt gifts from small businesses.

GIFTED | July 4th. It is just another day for those who live outside of the US, but this past July 4th was the premier of season 3 of Stranger Things! I already binge watched the new season, and it was a roller coaster of emotions, and I cannot wait for the fourth and hopefully not the last season. While we wait for the next season of Stranger Things, I created a gift guide for all the Stranger Things fans out there.
To follow-up my Vegetarian Danish Lunch Smorrebrod Recipe, I wanted to share my take on a popular Danish dinner dish, frikadeller with potatoes. Frikadeller are pan-fried meatballs that can be made with beans, lentils, quinoa, potatoes, corn, cauliflower, or other vegetables. Along with potatoes, frikadeller is often served with red cabbage, peas, carrots, cucumbers, or broccoli. In this version of frikadeller, they are made using chickpeas and mushrooms and served with potatoes, corn on the cob, and a parsley sauce.
Earlier this week my daughter stayed home from kindergarten and we made matcha macarons and I wanted to share the recipe!
