SPRING FLOWER TRAY

Being in the garden this time of year is special. You get to witness everything blossom and take on colorful transformations. Sadly sometimes, the transformation of a garden involves having to cut down trees and bushes. 

When you cut down trees you are often left with a tree stump. Some pull everything out of the ground, but if you are one of those who doesn't mind a bit of stump, then here's a cool idea; you can place a tray on the stump and create a small flowerbed.

We had a lilac bush, which was wildly over growing itself and everything around it, so we decided to cut it down and left the stem at about a 70-80 cm height. 

Then we took a big metal tray, drilled a couple of holes in it and screwed it on to the stump. This gave me a place to arrange a beautiful little flowerbed that I can change throughout the summer. Looks super cozy and fresh.

Have a beautiful day!

HEART SHAPED SWISS ROLL

Mother's Day is coming up soon and I’m pretty sure you're all preparing something wonderful for your mothers. I lost my mom when I was a kid, so unfortunately I don't get to give mother's day gifts. But if she was here, I would have made this for her.

It's a favorite recipe of mine, actually a Swiss roll, but I felt like turning it in to a layered heart shaped cake instead. My mom would have loved this. She baked a lot herself and I know she would have loved to know how much I enjoy baking too. Well, maybe she knows.

1. Measure out a piece of carton ca. 20 x 20 cm, fold it and cut out "half" a heart from it.

2. Make you Swiss roll mix and spread onto a baking tray 30 x 40 cm. 

3. Make your filling

4. When the cake has cooled, cut out three hearts by using the heart shaped piece of carton. (Make one heart in two pieces, to make it fit)

5. Cover a plate with three sheets of baking paper. Place the first cake layer here. The sheets can overlay, but they should not reach more than to the middle of the plate.

6. Take almost 1/4 of you filling and spread on layer one. Place layer two on top of that and add another 1/4 of the filling here. 

7 Place the last layer (i used the two halves here) on top of that and spread what's left of the cream filling, covering top and sides.

8. And you’re done! Now gently pull out the baking sheets from each side. You can use a fork at the bottom to lightly hold back the cake, when you pull out the sheets. Decorate your cake with strawberries or raspberries as you wish.

Have fun making your mother's day gifts.

CHICKEN SANDWICH W. CURRY & CHILI DRESSING

I just love chicken and bacon sandwiches. And I love it even more when you add a curry & chili dressing. It gives it that slight twist. This would be a nice meal to bring on your next picnic.

I prefer to use chicken filets, instead of cold cuts. It makes me fuller. I like bacon w. chicken but you can easily leave it out if you don't eat pork. The choice of greens are very optional, this is very traditional, cucumber, tomatoes and baby spinach. I always use spinach in my salads. I love the taste and they are so full of vitamins. Next time I think I'll use sprouts as well. Healhty and crispy.

The dressing is a really good one. I hardly ever use mayo in my dressing, so they are very light and fresh in taste. If you have any leftover chicken filets, you can use the dressing as dip. It tastes really good.

Happy cooking!
