Ruisleipä Frustration

On the return journey of my recent Finland trip I had to pay an excess baggage fee.  I looooove Finnish design and so  had treated myself to a Marimekko umbrella to brighten up grey mornings, a couple of Pentik wooden butter spreaders and a super sharp Fiskar cheese slicer.  I also bought a limited edition [...]

Baked Ameretti Peaches

Can I sneak this idea in before the last of the summer peaches disappear?  Hope so.  It’s a lovely, lovely dessert for a late August evening.

Fresh Tomato and Basil Soup

Don’t you think tomatoes this year are fantastic?  Are they always this red and round and shiny?  Are they?  Has it just been such a long time since last summer that I don’t remember how great they were last year too?  Perhaps.
