Empanadas

I have been on a journey to reduce processed foods from my diet. Not because I'm trying to lose weight, but because I feel like crap when I eat processed junk.

New Surroundings

I started a new job 6 weeks ago, and I'm playing that 'when do I tell them I'm vegan' game. Even after being vegan for 4 years, I still have such a hard time giving opinions when meeting new people. Unfortunately, I do live in the Midwest and I can still find myself in a... Continue Reading →

I prepared myself to not have many options because at Fika they focus on 'traditional' Swedish... Continue Reading →

Celebrating Midsommar

Nebraska summers can be unbearable, and at the same time they can be wonderful. When I celebrated the summer solstice the temperature was perfect, the food was delicious and the company marvelous. Traditional Midsommar is a big deal in Sweden, which is where I learned how to celebrate this holiday. Last summer in Sweden I... Continue Reading →
