WEDNESDAY CAKE URGES!

The weather has been so great the last couple of days and every coffee break has just been an excuse to go sit outside and feel the sun on your face. Don't know whether it was because of too much sun, or the need for another coffee break, but we got this crazy urge for cake this morning...and I had this picture in my head of a swiss roll with berries. Half an hour later the coffee was poured and the cake was served. Just love those impulsive crazy days :) Have a beautiful day! /Annika
 
 

HOMEMADE PESTO PIZZA

I'm huge pesto lover...could pretty much have it on everything I eat. So I had this idea for a pesto pizza, a rustic pizza without the usual tomato sauce. The dough is based on a recipe from Sweet Pauls Magazine, which will make 4 mini pizzas. I spread the pizza bottom with homemade pesto and as topping I use Italian salami, rocket, cherry tomatoes and buffalo mozzarella. This is a great lunch meal. Happy Monday! /Annika
 
 
 

CHOCOLATE FOR NEW YEAR

New Years is almost here and I bet you're all preparing for a great night. I think food is one of the most important things on New Years...I don't quite know why...but then again I always think food is important :) I have always loved to cook...and especially for family & friends. I get such pleasure, from watching the smile on someone's face while they get their taste buds satisfied. 
 
Chocolate is almost always a winner and this year I have decided to make a rich and dark chocolate cake for dessert. The recipe is from Sweet Pauls Holiday Magazine on page 53. I made a test bake of it the other day where I used 70 % chocolate, so its quite a strong flavored cake, but it is a beautiful tasting cake. I'm going to serve it with sour creme and raspberries. This is probably one of the best chocolate cakes I have ever tasted. /Annika
 
 
 

BOX OF CHOCOLATE

I'm crazy about chocolate, but not just any chocolate. It has to be dark...really dark. Picking out a nice piece of chocolate can be as hard as choosing a good bottle of wine. The taste and flavours are rich and many and the choice is endless.
This homemade treat is my Christmas chocolate favorite and is quite easy to make. It's filled with a nougat caramel nut crisp and then covered with chocolate. Here's the recipe.  /Annika
 
This is also our Sunday pictures for Fabriken. What's a Sunday without a nice piece of chocolate :)
 

 

 
 
  

BAG OF COOKIES

This recipe is one of my favorite cookie recipes. They are so easy to make and they make great Christmas cookies with their cinnamon flavour and crunchy, roasted nutty taste. Here is the recipe.
Pack the cookies in little bags and personalize it with cute labels and they make perfect hostess gifts. 
 
 
 
 

monday christmas colors

The fun thing about decorating for Christmas is that there are no rules. You can pick a new favorite color palette every year and try out new decorations. There are a lot of places where you can find your color inspiration. Foods are to me a great place to look and the season also invites new flavors into your home. I have a love for chocolate all year round, but when autumn and winter comes I find that it's especially irresistible. Cinnamon is a spice that I don't particularly like, but during Christmas season, its scent creates a very homey feel to me. All these smells are like color palettes to me. 

This year I'm going with a mix of earthy chocolate and cool scandinavian blue/gray colors with a sprinkle of red. What are your Christmas colors this year? /Annika
