Farmer’s Market Bag

Another successful bag. The design for this bag went through several iterations, but finally turned out. It’s rather simple and easy to make. Here’s just a picture for now. I might post the pattern later. It holds a surprisingly large amount and it has a very wide shoulder strap so it’s actually quite comfortable even…

Risen Grøt

Risen grøt is basically sweet rice boiled in milk (we used lactaid for me). So, sorta like rice pudding. They eat it as an actual meal in Norway. Typically eaten as above with butter, sugar and cinnamon. It still tastes like dessert to me much as blintzes (which are a meal to me) taste like…

Buttercup Bag Part 3 – Wrap up

So, I have now finished the Buttercup Bag. As I mentioned in the first post, Rae from Made by Rae is super for giving us this pattern and I definitely plan on making it again. There were a couple bumps. It also took a while since I was taking pictures the whole time so that…

Chocolate Meringue Cupcackes

I was trying to recreate the Old-Fashioned cupcake I had from Miette and I think I did a reasonable job. I…
