Smile – the sun is shining!

It is Thursday and after a two weeks break from the blog I should be posting another recipe… But I won’t. I need to figure out how to continue this blog (and still stay sane :-) ). I’ve reached an amount of recipes now that I am quite happy with and I keep baking and making quite a few of them… But I’m not sure I want to keep creating more, just for the sake of it… So be patient and enjoy this inspiring picture of my lunch today, for now. Made a fresh salad from “Feldsalat” (Cornsalad / Valerianella), “Baerlauch” (Wild garlic / Ramsons) and mint leaves / mentha. Topped with strawberries, eggs, pumpkin seeds and almond flakes. Sprinkled with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and salt. And voila – Suddenly noticed my salad was smiling at me!

Easter sweets and treats

Thursday before Easter is the day when, in Sweden, the witches fly off to “BlĂ„kulla”. You can see small versions of them walking from door to door tonight, dressed with aprons, a head scarf and with freckles painted all over their cheeks. They will give you a hand painted little Easter greeting and hopefully they will get some Easter candy as a thank you. It’s a very cute tradition, and I love the trading spirit (Easter greeting – candy). I thought for today I will not give you a new recipe, but instead make a few suggestions from all the recipes we already have here at Lieselathome – what would fit for the Easter holiday? Read on for some of my favorite sweets and treats!
