If there's one thing I've learned from Pinterest, it's that you can make just about anything in a muffin tin. And it was a pretty amazing discovery for me—for a while there, my muffin tin was by far my most used kitchen essential. My obsession came in particularly handy at breakfast, because muffin tin recipes are basically designed for on-the-run, make-ahead convenience. And I'll take as much of that as I can get when I'm rushing out the door in the morning.Aside from actual muffins (which I adore), Read more [...]

If you ask me, eggs are one of the most perfect foods. They're budget-friendly, protein-packed, have a relatively long life in the fridge, and are so, so versatile. And while there are a ton of creative new ways to eat eggs for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, it's worth mastering the basics before you go nuts with lemon curd and hollandaise and mayo from scratch.My favorite way to eat eggs...depends on the day? Some mornings, a simple scramble is the best possible breakfast. Other days, I'm craving Read more [...]

While it doesn’t look much like summer here yet, I’ve crafted the perfect morning yoga playlist for when it is. It’s Saturday morning here in Oslo, and I have to admit, the constant rain outside is starting to get to me a little. I’m longing for sunshine, vegan and organic popsicles, oceanside walks and warm summer evenings. I suppose I should have known what I was getting into when I decided to move so close to the North Pole. That being said, I wanted to have a sunshine vibe Read more [...]
