Recipe of the month from Madsens....

Norwegian “Kjøttkaker”/Meatballs
This month we will keep the food Norwegian inspired and one of the best loved Norwegian dishes are their beef meatballs.....
This recipe serves 4 people.
Ingredients:
 500g minced beef, 1 egg, 0.1 l milk, 2 tbsp potato flour, 200g finely chopped onion, season with salt, pepper, muscat nut and ginger powder
How to make:
 Mix the meat, egg, onion, potato flour and spices with a mixer for about 3 minutes. Then add the milk little by little and mix again until you have a smooth mixture. Put the meat mixture in the fridge for an hour. Form the meat to round balls (little larger then a golf ball) and pan-fry them until golden. Following this, you boil them in water for about 10 minutes or until they are finished. They should be cooked all the way through.
Gravy:
 Sieve the water you used to boil the meatballs in. The fry some onions in a pot and once golden pour some of the “meatballs stock” over. Let it boil for five minutes and gradually thicken with flour. Season to taste with salt, pepper and colour with gravy browner.
Serve the meatballs in the gravy and enjoy with new potatoes and seasonal vegetables

With thanks from Madsen - A Scandinavian Restaurant in London

Beautiful house in London...

When I first saw these pictures I thought oh my goodness, this is very almost 
how I envisage my eventual London house to be.  This architects home is a 
fine example of my favourite Dinesen floors in a quintessential English period
 property. The furniture is beautiful and the detailing is just right.  Perfect.

Busy weekend for me....

I am excited to have my close friends gather together tomorrow for a house
 warming garden party in my new London apartment.   I am busy preparing
 some yummy goodies and stopping every now and then to water the plants
 or do a bit of work - and will in a minute pop out for an iced coffee ♥.....I am
 very lucky to have a Starbucks at the end of my road ;-)  Okay so about todays
 post.....I've posted their work before, because it is simply divine.  

Have an amazing weekend!

Today I'm enjoying....

.....these shots from Ferm living, some of them for the S/S 2011
 collection and some that have been around for a while.  I'm loving
 the use of raw wood and white (my favourite combination at the
 moment), the styling in general is fantastic and the kids fabric prints
 are just beautiful.

Summer cabin in the woods...

Something very different from yesterdays summer cabin post....
A cosy cabin deep in the woods in Northern Zealand, Denmark
that has been lovingly restored by the owners Stine and Henry
in a traditional log cabin style....
the walls are home to their amazing art collection.
Its no surprise that they spend all their summers here......

Its nearly summer house season!

I am very excited as I have been invited
to spend in week in my friend's
summer house in Sweden this July.
I can't wait for swimming in the lake and
long summer evenings with lots of
chatting, relaxing & eating (Maria is a domestic goddess)
I am counting the days down.....
Here is some summer house inspiration
by Johannes Norlander Architects
from Sweden
I love the use of plywood throughout, its just beautiful.
