Roughly three hours north of Mexico City lies the beautiful colonial city of San Miguel de Allende – or SMA as the locals call it. Declared a world heritage site by UNESCO in 2008, San Miguel de Allende truly has a magical feel surrounding it. With its well preserved Baroque architecture and layout, coupled with its vibrant mix of people, SMA is a destination worth visiting in Mexico. Keep Reading
“Stuffed” anything for some reason reminds me bit of 70s style of cooking (not that I was even born then), but when I look at my mother’s old cookbooks and magazine clippings from that time….there was a lot of stuffing going on! Keep Reading
As many of you know, C and I got married in Lima last March. It was an amazing wedding which we got to celebrate and share with our closest and dearest family and friends. It truly was one of the best days of our lives – and all those months of hard work and planning really paid off.
Due to our somewhat crazy international lifestyle, we had over 90 overseas guests attend our wedding! Seriously - C and I should have received commission from the Peruvian Tourism Board?! Keep Reading
I don’t know why – but to my ear everything sounds better in Swedish. Even though English is definitely my stronger language - the sound of spoken Swedish is one of the best things I know – especially if it is coming from a Skåning (someone from the south). I even prefer to read in Swedish as there is something so poetic in the way Swedish authors put their words to paper and the rhythm that they create that I don’t seem find in the English language. What I hate however is writing in Swedish…an absolute nightmare! Which is why you will never see a post in Swedish, or the fact that I only write emails and texts in English to my Swedish friends (something they find quite amusing)!
So getting back to my post – I originally made these bad boys to go with my new low carb high fat (LCHF) lifestyle that I have embarked on the last 3.5 weeks. I was going to post it in my other blog LCHF…What?! - but thought that these are soo good and so simple to make that everyone will enjoy them.
So, while I was going through all my photos for my previous post on Lima, I came across these bad boys:
Not to toot my own horn – but don’t they look just fantastic? Especially coming from me – who is not known for my baking skills, or photography skills for that matter -but I think I nailed them both, no? Keep Reading
Since visiting Peru for the first time in 2011, Lima has quickly become one of my favourite cities in the world. I am aware that this point of view is not entirely objective as ‘C’ is Peruvian and grew up in Lima. Hence every time we visit, I am taken to his favourite places and introduced to his favourite people – which makes a huge difference when getting to know a city.
However, I have now been to Lima 3 times, and each time I visit, I feel more and more passionate about this seaside capital, and can increasingly see myself living there (does anyone else notice what a big statement this is coming from me?..!). Now on the flip side, I have only ever been there in the summer when they actually have some sun, however, ‘C’ assures me that this only happens 8 weeks a year – and the rest of the time Lima is shrouded in a thick fog! This could significantly change my mind…. Keep Reading
As promised a couple of posts ago, now that I am leaving Mexico in only a few months, I seriously need to get blogging on all these amazing things to see and do in this wonderful country. So I thought I would start with Rancho Las Cascadas.
I been to the Ranch a couple of times last year, once with my good friend Miako, and another time with C along with another couple. Both times I thoroughly enjoyed it and both times I promised myself to write something about it. Keep Reading
