First of May

Ah! 1st of May. My favourite month. The start of the new season. Spring. It’s the time when flowers bloom, grass turns greener and days gets brighter. But today, it actually snowed a little bit here in Oslo. But it didn’t last long. It was mostly like wet snow. And rain. But I guess it’s […]

Petite Madeleine

On Sundays, I like preparing afternoon tea. I love spending time making petit fours or just a simple cake to go with our tea. Last Sunday I made Madeleines.

Le Chocolat Chaud

I remember when we were in Paris a few years back. We went to Angelina. A century old (110 years to be exact) tea salon and pâtisserie that serves the best chocolat chaud (hot chocolate). It is so thick that you can make your teaspoon stand on its own when dipped in the cup of that […]
