Joulukalenteriin

by Sofia   -   in Good things for kids

Oletko jo valimistellut kaiken tämän vuoden joulukalenteriin? Kohtahan ne jo otetaan esiin! Me haimme suloisen kuvakalenterin Annista & Aleksista Kiseleffin talosta, mutta ripustamme myös jokavuotisen pussukkakalenterin lastenhuoneeseen. Jos sinulla on vielä kalenterimietinnät kesken niin muistatko, että minulla oli niitä prinattavia lappusia joita voi laittaa kalenterin sisään. Nuo yhdessä tekemiset ovat aina oleet meidän perheessämme suosikkeja. Tänä vuonna järjestämme ainakin nukeille ja nalleille kunnon joulukestit, käymme taas katselemassa kaupungilla jouluvaloja ja taianomaisia lasten jouluikkunoita ja luistelemma koko perheen voimin. Myös vaahtokarkkien paahtaminen takassa on ollut joka vuotuinen perinne joka on löytynyt joulukalenterista. Löydät tuon printattavan pdf-tiedoston täältä. Kuvakalenteri avataan heti aamusta herättyä, mutta tuon pussukkakalenterin kimppuun pääsee vasta kun aamutoimet on suoritettu, eli hampaat pesty, hiukset harjattu, vaatteet on päällä, aamupala on syöty ja oma sänky on pedattu. Saapahan ainakin ripeyttä aamutoimiin!

Swiss meringue buttercream

by Sofia   -   in Cooking

I know I promised this recipe and I´m keeping to it. I just have not had a chance to make it before. This is Martha Stewart´s buttercream recipe from her book Cupcakes. It has a lot of butter, the taste is mild and soft and not as sweet as a regular buttercream or cream cheese frosting, but if you dislike buttercream in general then maybe it´s not for you. But the magic about this meringue buttercream is that it pipes like a dream. So if you want to make pretty piped designs I recommend you try this.

Happy week!

by Sofia   -   in Random

I´m still on holiday and have spent absolutely no time writing for the blog while here. Instead I have been digging my feet deep in the sand, stood in the waves of the ocean, collected shells, swam with a girl wrapped around my neck looking at her long lashes and the sun glistening above the sea. I have had mint tea and mini cupcakes to die for separately with my girls while the other was on the beach having ice-cream with daddy. I have ran by the sea, visited an orange farm ( we picked some incredible fresh tangerines), a drive through safari where we saw rhinos, hippos, zebras, giraffes and even lions ( the latter were in their own area behind a fence). We went for a father´s day lunch at a vineyard where we had a tour at the premises and a combined wine & chocolate tasting ( just chocolate for the girls). I´ve eaten great food and most of all I have relaxed, been with the ones I love and had time to listen to all of them. All in all it has been a fun, relaxing and satisfying vacation. It´s always a little sad when it ends but we will bring all the great memories home! And I hope you have kept the snow going for me as I can not wait to enjoy the white cozy Christmas feeling .

This is the view from our bedroom window. The whole wall is glass with sea views. So calming and refreshing. 

Have a great week!
