Creamy chickpea salad with avocado, feta & dill

This creamy chickpea salad reminds me of late summer days at our grandparents' country house in Sweden. I suppose it's the abundance of dill and it's vibrant and vigorous scent. It's just such a Swedish herb. This salad would go perfectly with the traditional Swedish 'kräftskiva' I guess. But it's just as good on its own with a nice slice of bread on the side. The chickpeas make this salad...

Moving out to the terrace

Just like most people I love eating and drinking outside and I think it's a deep, almost primal desire we all share. As much as I love eating outdoor I also love cooking outside so I improvised a little outdoorkitchen. Nothing complicated or fancy, all the contrary. A small, simple…

GARDENING IS GOOD FOR THE SOUL

My garden is my most beautiful masterpiece. - Claude Monet It was only last year that I started my journey as a gardener for real and if I confess I was not really sure if I was going to feel the same way towards gardening as last year.

Slow gardening is the only way I can and want to grow my garden. It consists…

Slow interior, the timeless and conscious home

Slow living aesthetics are usually characterized by a neutral color scale and this is what it looks like at home. Of course, that does not have to be the case.

Applying the slowliving concept to your interior, on the other hand, is an effective way to more easily create a more timeless and at the same time a more sustainable home. By finding out…
