Salmon Wellington Recipe

I tried this recipe and it was VERY delicious, so I thought of sharing it with you guys. The recipe details of how to make it (with pictures) from the original site here .

I actually read the recipe and used what I had at home, I used fresh small salmon pieces and made a one big loaf instead. I made sure to used the same filling, except that I didn't have cream cheese so I used cream fresh with taste of garlic and I skipped using garlic so it won't be too much garlic taste. Sometimes I try to be creative using my own cooking experience and taste balance. Try the original recipe and let me know what you think. Enjoy!







Ingredients

4 (7 oz) salmon fillets
salt and pepper to taste
2 tbsp butter
2 garlic cloves, divided
1 shallot, chopped
¼ cup white wine
3 oz cream cheese
5 oz fresh baby spinach
2 tbsp plain bread crumbs
¼ cup shredded parmesan cheese
1 (1 lb.) package puff pastry
1 egg (for egg wash)


Enjoy!

Home Decor: Easy DIY Curtains

This is the DIY home project I worked on last weekend. I bought this beautiful Ikea Fabric REVVIVA which I found out of stock the first day I went to buy it ( typically when I want to buy something on my list, like the Pilea peperomioides house plant for example). I choose this fabric because it would fit well with our black white grey and beige interior.

I used the simplest sewing method to save time which is the pod pocket curtains. Here you can find a full video of how to sew an easy pod pocket curtains.


Materials needed: 
• Drapery fabric
• Scissors or a rotary cutter and mat
• Thread
• A ruler or measuring tape
• A fabric marker or pencil
• Sewing gauge (optional)
• Iron

Gothenburg From My Camera

This is the reason I have been away the past few days. We had such wonderful time exploring Gothenburg. We went to the Liseberg park where I practiced to use my camera in natural low light, amazing place to spend the whole day playing games and enjoying both food and drinks, also some stores to shop gifts. We dined in Varland restaurant  and  Le Pain Francais the both places that I liked very much.

I would recommend staying in Gothia Towers Hotel, they have a great location and a cool outdoor swimming pool. Visiting the marina is also something to put on the list. The city has lots of artistic things to see all the way when you are exploring it, lots of statues and old buildings. If you ever go there don't forget to drop by the seafood church Feskekörka they got the most delicious sea food collection in Sweden specially the smoked salmon and kalixlöjrom "Caviar of Kalix".

While we were there I accidentally bumped in to the famous swedish hockey player henrik lundqvist. It was weird how I noticed him so quickly :-P . At the end I hope these photos I took show you how Gothenburg is like. Enjoy

Back Home




Hello blog buddies! We've been away the past few days on a trip to couple of places, gothenburg, Stockholm, and Helsinki. We had such great time and in the last days of the trip I started missing home. When the weather started to shift to the fall I wanted to be no where else but home.

On the way back I started making plants to change the home styling again. I will be sewing new curtains tomorrow for the living room and I already bought couple of new styling items for both the kitchen table, and the coffee table. Below are similar items to style your space, I hope you like them.

The couple of coming posts will be regarding the trip. Stay in touch!'

Shopping Diary: Rose Gold



Ive never been a gold jewelry fan. I always thought of gold as an antique lady style, like in old classic movies. Since rose gold became an alternative I started really liking it and especially when in certain simple modern designs.  

I adore these earnings very much from the danish jewelry designer DYRBRG/KERN, bought via my favorite store Royaldesign. I am kind of craving more of their jewelries for future buys, and defiantly a recommended gift source. 

Ive already wrote about this the previous shopping diary post but I thought of posting an update  ( product review ) wearing the earrings and how they actually look. I am satisfied with this buy and will be wearing with both casual formal outfits.

5 Months Milestones



It has been 5 months since me and little Julia established our life together. We managed to build a daily routine the past few months and are improving a lot with each new development she makes. Food , play and sleep timings are starting to be more organized. 

When are out or when we get visits at home, people tell us that we got the worlds most calm and easy going baby but I wonder if that is only because of the social effect she gets, because she is more calm and easy going around people when in full house, than when its only me and her dad. I guess she calms down to pay attention to the differences around her, the voices, the smells the new or familiar faces and so on.. she is not as calm home when in peace and quite. She wants things happening all the time and she easily gets board. I do my best to keep her entertained when she is awake during the day.

To moms out there who are almost getting to the 5 months milestone things will finally work out and you will be able to make your routine and feel that you can accomplish more than you did the last new months with your time. I myself thought I will be trapped in the same first period of baby arrival and that I will never be able to make time for other things in my life other than the baby care. 

By the time the baby starts to play and hold things you will be able to have a break and do other things.  I hope these info from my own experience helps those who are wondering about how the motherhood days to come will be. 

Below is my collection of MOM To Be guide where I saved all the info and tips that helped me make it until now :-) . Enjoy!
