Pepparkakor (Swedish Gingerbread)

Christmas has arrived in my kitchen!  Pepparkakor are traditional Swedish gingerbread biscuits which fill your house with the smell of ginger, cinnamon and cloves.

What better way to get into the festive spirit than to fill your kitchen with cinnamon, ginger and cloves?

I'm a big fan of Swedish foods and flavours but to be honest with you, I've not made enough of an effort to actually make anything remotely Scandinavian.  With Christmas just around the corner I thought these traditional biscuits would be a good start!

Foodie Gift Ideas

Sometimes I get really stumped when buying presents, don't you?!  It can be especially hard if you're buying for a "foodie" - they probably have all of the things they need in the kitchen so I've been doing some online window shopping to see what's out there that would make a great gift from the very small to a few more special things..

Photo a Day: November

"Remember, remember the fifth of November 
Gunpowder, treason and plot. 
I see no reason, why gunpowder treason 
Should ever be forgot." 

Guy Fawkes' night was a bit confusing this year - some people set off their fireworks the weekend before which was also when a lot of little ghosts and ghouls were out trick or treating, some people stuck to the actual day and some people chose the weekend after.  Some people just didn't care and set off fireworks whenever they felt like it!
