Long before I knew Ikea’s famous dish Köttbular can be bought from their food section, I used to make them at home. But now, it’s more convenient since a pack of 50-60 pieces meatballs, 2 packs of ready-mix sauce and a jar of lingonberry jam costs 8,90Euro (reduced from 12). I remember the first time I bought it, another Ate (older sister) M bought a set and gave me some of the meatballs which I served with potato and the lingonberry jam I still have at home.

If you’re building a home or planning to remodel one, you might want to include a breakfast nook in the plan. It’s a smart and multi-functional space-saver that every kitchen should have. Most homes with limited floor space incorporate breakfast nooks, as these not only serve as a cozy eating space but it can also be used as a workstation. A breakfast nook is often positioned near the window, usually in an alcove or bay. The purpose is for the nook to catch the morning light.
However, it’s no longer surprising to see a variety of breakfast nooks these days. Some nooks are elaborate while others are very simple. Some are elevated with high chairs or stools and this style is perfect for smaller kitchens. On the other hand, large families prefer L-shaped nooks as it can accommodate many people in one sitting.
A breakfast nook can make mornings better. Imagine yourself rousing from sleep, padding through your kitchen, and settling yourself in your nook with a cup of hot coffee in your hand. As you sit cozily in your nook, you can pore over the morning paper or make a quick scan of your email inbox. It’s a scene typical during the weekends. Yet, if you have a breakfast nook, every morning can give you a warm and cozy weekend feel to it.
The breakfast nook is where a family can gather and comfortably enjoy a home-cooked meal before they start the day. As much as possible, you want the breakfast nook to be just the right size. It shouldn’t be too large; otherwise, you’re bound to lose the intimacy for which breakfast nooks are known to imbue. For a family of four, a good-sized breakfast nook would be around six to eight feet wide and five to seven feet deep. The proportions would give each person ample room for themselves without taking away the cozy feeling.Continue Reading…
Protein is one of the essential building blocks of the human body. Found in muscle, bone, hair, skin, and throughout the organs and tissues, protein-based enzymes are responsible for fueling many of the crucial chemical processes that the body relies on daily. There are at least 10,000 distinct types of proteins that are active in keeping the human machine running, making it vital that the body replenish its stores through a protein rich diet.
Considering Food’s Complete Protein Package
However, recent research suggests that the amount of protein in your diet may be much less important than the quality of the total protein package that your meals contain–while red meats provide a rich source of proteins, they often come packaged with health-hazardous saturated fats and excess sodium. Recent studies are showing that replacing red meat options–and particularly processed red meats– with poultry, fish, and plant-based protein sources (i.e. a tofu dog or veggie burger can provide a complete protein profile without loading on the extra fats and salts.Continue Reading…

When it comes to our main meals we easily travel the world with our culinary experimentation; Indian, Italian, Mexican and so on are all foods we regularly consume, but I have noticed we tend to overlook the desserts which are available. For example, we all know chilli is a Mexican dish but can you name any Mexican desserts?
Here we have some great desserts from around the world, how many have you tried, have you made any? If you haven’t tried any why not find the dessert recipes and make one yourself?
Mexico: Spiced Chocolate Brownies
Mexican desserts are generally custard or bread based, and it was hard to choose our favourite! Although thought of as more of an American creation the Chocolate Brownie has strong roots in Mexico!

Spices often added include cinnamon, cayenne and of course chilli powder, all of which bring something new to the table.Continue Reading…
