My To-Go-Snack – Healthy Muffins with Apple and Walnuts

Recently I’ve been living literally on muffins. Yes, but not the overly greasy and sugary ones, but their healthier home-made alternative (I’m talking both savoury and sweet muffins). They’ve become my to-go snack when I have no time to prepare proper lunch or simply when I don’t feel like wasting time in the kitchen during the day, when I can go out with Sofia or just read a book instead. Quite frankly, it all started out of curiosity whether I would be able to bake something eatable. Turns out – I’m pretty good at it. hehe. Also, despite my tiredness, I’d much rather spend an hour baking (in silence) after everyone has already fallen asleep, so that I can be all by...

Why I Began Vlogging Again

Even though my blog has taken a huge part of my life since I launched it, recently I’ve been feeling less and less content with it. I couldn’t get my head around why I felt this way until I recorded a short video for Sofia and had a look at it. It suddenly hit me – I wanted to be able to talk to you not only in written form, but orally. I wanted to get closer to all of you by giving you a sneak peak behind the curtain. And just like that I began vlogging and capturing on camera all that I’ve been writing for here on ‘Letters to Antoinette’. In today’s vlog (here) I’m going shopping with my...

Situation ‘I Look Like A Hamster’

Two days ago and very unexpectedly I rebooked my flight to Bulgaria. I got a horrible toothache and there was no way I could be able to look after Sofia-Malou 24/7 and deal with the pain. And the worst of all was that I couldn’t take any pain killers – I’m allergic to most plus breastfeeding. Sofia and I made it back and went straight to the dentist the moment we landed. I feel better now and the whole winter wonderland situation is without any doubt a mood booster. The only thing that’s missing is Philip, but he couldn’t join us as now is the busiest time for him work-wise. Oh and good news – I finally went back to vlogging again! I’ve...

Gift-Wrapping and…Some Cheeky Unwrapping

Denmark is changing me…like really! I’ve never in my life imagined myself wrapping presents…I used to let other people do it for me or just opted for the American way using Christmas bags instead. But the whole Danish Christmas  ‘hygge’ took Christmas to an entirely different level for me. And gift wrapping is a big part of it. So here I am being very Danish cutting paper, choosing props and bows to place on the presents with a cup of chai in hand. To make it all even more cosy.. of course I added some fairy lights.My parents are also arriving tomorrow to celebrate Christmas here. In fact, it’s my first Christmas in Denmark too so I’m crazily excited to taste...

Family ‘Hygge’

There is nothing cosier than spending time with the ones you love. Or as Danish people like to say it’s all about the ‘familie hygge’. I’ve tried to explain what ‘hygge’ means in some of my previous posts,  but if you haven’t come across the word – it refers to everything that’s cosy, happy, and snuggly… And, of course, ‘hygge’ has a different meaningt for everyone – Philip once told me that every time he considers something ‘hygge’, a specific childhood memory comes to his mind.
