I'm Ingunn. This blog is about learning to make photos instead of just taking them. This is where I collect and express ideas and thoughts, and sometimes I might get sidetracked, too! There is so much to be learned. I have an urge for making life better, simpler and tastier. My picture galleries are in the sections travel and portfolio. I write in English, but I am Norwegian, and comments are most welcome in both languages.

Christmas dinner with very good friends! Six of us this time, gathered around a table for food and wine. This is something we do every year and is now an established Christmas tradition that I hope will last very, very long. We had a nice 3-coarse meal at Akersberget, a very charming new place in Oslo. Our menu was based on herring, reindeer and cloudberries, and it was delicious. But most of all I appreciated being with old friends - a couple of them have been my friends since childhood. A treasure chest of memories and stories opens itself for sharing every time we are together.

No Christmas without baking gingerbread cakes! A lovely afternoon spent with family and friends quickly results in a box or two of charming gingerbread figures.


Handmade chocolate

I received a small box of handmade chocolate as a thank you for giving a lecture the other day. It was absolutely delicious! A lovely cup of tea along with it and sharing the chocolates with my family made me feel luxurious on an ordinary Thursday evening.


Chocolate cake can't go wrong


I tried a new recipe from Tessa Kiros' neat book Apples for Jam today, and it turned out great! Everybody loved it, the birthday girl in particular. It was everything she wished for: Spongy, soft and moist inside, and with a rich, fat, juicy frosting on the outside. I decorated it very simply with pink and white hearts and candles.

There are a lot of nice, easy-to-go-to-recipes in that book, and it is both quite cool that they are organized by color, and rather confusing at the same time. I think it will be interesting to check out her other books as well, Falling Cloudberries in particular.
