It is now over a year ago since I wrote on my blog. Why? Two reasons: one I’m working way too much so hard to find the time (I though have 37 drafts…) But the other reason is, I lost my motivation! Is anyone else other than my mother reading this blog?

I had a good talk with a dear friend about how it is when losing ones motivation and things just get too wrapped up. She really encouraged me to pick it up again. First she said she missed my blog; so two who read my blog! And then lower my ambition: new recipes in two languages every week?!?!? And don’t forget my purpose of my blog: to inspire to enjoy good food and drinks! And I really enjoy writing and take pictures.

Another friend told me some weeks ago that she really likes my recipes and that she has her favorites that she goes back to over and over again two of them are Bacon wrapped Monkfish (English / Swedish) which is perfect for grilling summer-time and Pasta con Salsicca al Pomodoro (English / Swedish) a comfort food favorite!

So here I’m – back at it again! If you like my blog and my recipes let me know. What is your favorite? And anything specific you like to hear about? I would love to hear from you!
What have I done this last year? You got it: Life is too short to not eat and drink well so I’ve enjoyed lots of good food and drinks and yes also added some shoes into my closet.

So let’s stay friends! Happy summer!
