Blackberry jam, so easy to make and the berries are so easy to pick as they grow pretty much everywhere. Just chuck them in the pot, ad some sugar and let it cook so the jam sets. Had these with pancakes, bliss.

Made a dinner list, thought it might help us to decide what to eat... Sometimes it's just so difficult cause you don't really feel like thinking about what to cook.. If we plan it, we can just make it, without even thinking! Click on the image, or here, to download it. Hope you like it!

Ahhhh.... Sweet Swedish buns, Kanel bullar. They are so good. Worth a try.
Here's the recipe, makes about 35:

2tsp dry yeast
150g butter, melted
2.5dl milk
2.5dl water
2 eggs
1.5dl sugar
1tbs cardamom
0.5tsp salt
13dl flour (keep some for kneading)

For the filling:
150g butter
1dl sugar
1tbs cinnamon

1 egg for brushing and 'pearl sugar' for garnish or dust with icing sugar (as picture)

Mix all dry ingredients. Add all wet ingredients. mix and work the dough until it's firm and elastic. Leave to prove for about 40min.
Leave your butter for the filling out in room temp so it is easy to spread.
Roll out your dough to a rough size of 60*30cm
Spread your butter and dust with the sugar and cinnamon.
Roll it up then divide into pieces. Put into individual paper cases.
Leave to rise for about 30min.
Heat your oven to 250 degrees.
Brush your buns with the egg, bake for 8-10min, then garnish with the sugar. Enjoy!

I wouldn't even talk to myself today... it is Monday after all.

Homemade marmalade and bread...mmmm... I did experiment a little with the flavorings of the marmalade. I would highly recommend orange and basil as a combo. Orange and fennel and orange and cayenne was ok, but wont do it again. Would have loved some nice labels made...hinthint, but had to do with my handwriting.
Then there is the bread. The two at the top are sourdough breads. I just love the texture. Can almost smell them. The baguettes was made using the bread machine to make the dough and then finished in the oven with a tray of water at the bottom to create steam which helps make the bread more crispy on the outside! I'm actually hungry now.

Black top, black coffee.
Worn, torn and raw edge. Small stitches and big folds.
Favorite little cup, a perfect size in a beautiful stripe.

Yep the iPhone 4 is out and the offices are starting to fill up with 'em... and unsurprisingly the first thing I am shown with this state of the art gadget is that their is an app which converts images to look dated.
I kinda just used the above as an excuse to show you a reworked image I took behind our flat in East London a few years back, not the kind of supertubes I remeber as a kid.

Yeah, you know what it is... Coriander seed, black peppercorn, white pepper, beef stock, salt, sugar, red wine vinegar and just the right amounts to make the most beautiful tasting biltong this side Surrey. Oh yeah! +/- 5 days.

And cider too... 40 pints of the home brewed summer loveliness. To be shared of course.
