Stacking pancakes to make them attractive

This was my husbands breakfast plate this morning.

Stack of pancakes, with blueberries

I love to make him smile :-)

You can serve pancakes in so many ways but an easy way to make each plate look like it came right out of a 5-star kitchen is to stack them in the middle of the plate and add a little love.

Using nut butter (hazelnut in this case) – I dipped a small spoon in the jar and then letting it flow over the pancakes, made circles around the stack – like a flower. I did this after stacking just 3 pancakes so you don’t see the “mess” that happens on the actual pancake – just the shapes on the plate.

Then I added 4 more pancakes, a dollop of fresh creme cheese on the top and a few fresh blueberries. Voila! So easy, and it really looks nice.

Another use for spinach – pancakes!

Spinach is a very versatile leaf. Supposedly healthy as well. We always have spinach at home and I like to add it to at least one meal every day. Yesterday it was breakfast (and later on we had spinach as a side for dinner as well, but that is another story…). This recipe for spinach pancakes is really simple and can be varied easily.

Elins birthday

Today my little daughter turns 11.

Every birthday is a huge event for a kid and of course it should be special. So I made her favorite breakfast – carrot pancakes - with added sweet potato (that we had left over from last night), and of course there had to be cupcakes! Blueberry lemon muffins with a topping of mascarpone, yoghurt, lemon juice, honey and some beetroot juice.

Happy birthday Elin!

I love you!

7 of my favorite meals

Pancakes, Muffins, scrambled eggs, grilled vegetables – I love breakfast! I wrote a post about it before and I decided it was time to do another one. If you’ve had toast, muesli or porridge as a first meal all your life, it can be tricky to come up with healthy alternatives at first. But let me assure you – breakfast can be both nutritious and delicious. And a lovely way to wake up!

Bedtime thoughts and carrot pancakes for breakfast

Sometimes I have the weirdest thoughts on my mind right before I go to sleep. Very often they include food. And regulary I think of new weird combinations of ingredients. Last night I made up this recipe for carrot pancakes in my head – and of course I had to try it out this morning. I’m as surprised as anyone that they turned out so great!

7 Breakfasts for a great start of the day

A friend once told me that we all have different love languages. We have different ways of showing our love for others. For me, food is definitely one of them. That’s why I like to start the day by waking up my loved ones to a well-prepared and tasty breakfast – to give us all a great start of the day.

Living a healthy lifestyle (Paleo, Primal, LCHF and similar) the first meal can be the most difficult one. We don’t eat bread, porridge or muesli, so what do we eat? I thought I’d show you. I’ve taken a picture of my plate every morning for the last week…  Starting last sunday – here we go:

Breakfast Pancakes

We hear it all the time these days – eggs are the perfect breakfast food. And I’m happy to eat them in any form (almost! – not raw! Even the thought creeps me out!). My son however, has been a no eggs person since birth. So one way to get him to eat eggs is to make pancakes. With lots of eggs. He loves that! Me too!
