Happy New Year, folks!
As I thought no one would bother reading a blog post on New Year's Eve, I decided to post my regular link love post a few days later than usual. Without further words from your's truly, I'll let you have fun with these links that made me so very excited in December!
P.S. Let's make this year worth a toast (not bread, booze), shall we?
P.P.S. Thanks for being there, saying "hi", making my recipes, and encouraging me in what I'm doing. Thank you, thank you, thank you. 2015 will be a year of changes and challenges, and, therefore, this space will occasionally take a slower pace. In this whirlwind called life, I aim for balance and hope to get better at it. A challenge for sure!
Okay, let's enjoy some links now!
» Ginger Sweet Potato Dal with Coconut Leeks – the perfect dish to welcome a new year
» I didn't manage to make Lindsey's chocolate barks this year but will totally make them another time! I mean, how could one resist a pairing of pomegranates and pistachios?
» For me, Sprouted Kitchen has always been one of the most inspiring blogs. Their first cookbook, The Sprouted Kitchen: A Tastier Take on Whole Foods, has been on a heavy rotation in my kitchen, and especially after this post (with a killer recipe!), I can't wait for their second book, The Sprouted Kitchen: Bowl + Spoon: Simple and Inspired Whole Foods Recipes to Savor and Share, to come out.
» The ultimate podcast list by Sara of Cake Over Steak
» PICKLED GRAPES!!!
» I've never heard of this before but I definitely need pistachio aillade in my life
» Move over burrito, bibimbap and biriani, it's all about creamed cod roe. Oh and to love or to hate creamed cod roe? For me, there's only one answer: LOVE IT!
» I'm really excited for Pure Green Magazine's round two of their inspiring #PGMinseason project which will be launched later this year. So happy to see Sanda of Little Upside Down Cake (her work is stunning!) being one of the community leaders!
» The most amazing cocktail of 2014...and probably 2015 as well: Passioned Green Tea Whiskey
» A day that starts with a breakfast like this one can only be a good one. [By the way, have I ever told you that Suvi of Suvi Sur Le Vif is one of my most favorite photographers? Just feel the mood in her pics!]
» For all my German-speaking followers: I was honored to be featured on NORR – Das Skandinavische Magazine last month. They even translated the Finnish Cinnamon Roll recipe into German!
Above, you see a traditional Finnish Christmas date bundt cake. No worries, I've marked in my calendar, in capital letters, BLOG ABOUT DATE BUNDT CAKE, so it will make a reappearance on the blog in late 2015.
