Happy New Year! And Happy The-Morning-After

Time just flies when you are having fun. Here we are again, ready for the New Year celebration and arrival of 2014, and it seems like just a few days ago we were wishing everyone a Happy 2013.
Our traditional New Year kransekage by the recipe of Claus Meyer baked and decorated, champagne chilled, fireworks bought, the outfit is ready, so now we have a bit of time to reflect over the past 12 months and be grateful for all the wonderful things, new opportunities and challenging experiences this year has brought us. 
Happy New Year to you all and a great, fun celebration tonight! And to ensure you meet the morning-after in your best shape, here're a few tips and recipes on how to deal with over-indulging on a new year night. HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!

Baking Spree

There is no better time to over-indulge in all our favourite foods (and drinks) than Christmas. We went on a true baking spree this holiday season, starting with oatmeal-chocolate Christmas cookies, moving on to an insanely delicious, rich and decadent chocolate cake with a funny name of Kladdkaka (aka chokoladekage med fudge-frosting): we found this amazing recipe on our favourite Danish baking blog Cute Carbs. And once you had enough of all things chocolate, you may want to try our old times favourite, albeit in a new shape: this mouth-watering Ukrainian cheese-cake, aka Syrnyk, is a real treat (forever thank you Nata:)
Happy Holidays !

All I Want for Christmas

It seems just yesterday we were celebrating Easter, and voila, it's less than 4 days left till Christmas. This year it hasn't really been all traditional Christmassy, and were running a risk of doing any Christmas shopping at the airports duty-free. With so many days and nights spent away from home on business in the past few months, this Christmas is especially sweet and cozy, and we are so looking forward to family hygge: just staying in, enjoying our gorgeous little Christmas tree, unwrapping all the presents, over-indulging in Christmas food, sipping delicious cocktails, laughing, stopping to smell the roses, and just being grateful for this wonderful year. Merry Christmas !
