Let's have a quick look, what's going on in my kitchen in June!
My brother's family were visiting us, and since it was close to my nephew's birthday, I made him a cake. It was just a basic layer cake with strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, gelatine-free butterfly sweets and cream. It was actually the first layer cake I've ever made, as I've always made different type of cakes, but it was fine and it went down well. I also had these nice seasonal flower bouquets as decoration. My nephew is an enthusiastic gardener and likes all kinds of plants.
Before the family visit, I also took the task of tidying the spice rack upon me. I don't do it often, and unfortunately I forgot to take before pictures. Now I can find everything more easily.
Finland won men's ice-hockey world championship in May, and on the night of the final I made this Finland-shaped naan bread. Do you think that it helped our team a bit to beat Canada? Related to that theme I'm also posting Swedish Wash brut ale (we sent Sweden home already in the quarter finals).
Now from sports to some foods I've been eating. I made homemade purple sweet potato gnocchi from lovely purple sweet potatoes from our market. I need to make them again and take better presentation photos, as it was a really nice dish.
We also made these roasted bell pepper, chipotle ketchup and mozzarella baguettes inspired by a tasty baguette that the sandwich chain Pret once had, but doesn't seem to anymore, at least not in Copenhagen.
A basic summer meal: vegetable sticks with hummus.
As usual, I'm sharing this post with Sherry from Sherry's Pickings blog, who is hosting the In My Kitchen blogger challenge. Go and have a look in her blog for the other entries as well.
Have a great weekend!
