Long weekend breakfast are one of our fav traditions so this is just us asking you kids not to through away bad bananas because actually bad bananas is the best bananas for making Banana Bonanza Bread and home baked bread is like the most precious thing you can own you can even put the browned bananas in the freezer if you´re not up for baking until the weekend then they will be ready whenever you feel for going bananas!! This is what you need:
2 ripe bananas
1 dl wheat flour
1 coconut flour
1 dl almond flour
1 dl yoghurt
1 tsk baking soda
1 tsk cinnamon
1 tsk cardamon
Pinch of sea salt
0.5 dl chopped almonds
Pre heat the oven to 175 celsius. Mash the banana and mix with egg and yoghurt. Mix all the dry ingredients. Add the banana mix to the dry mix. Pour the dough in to a buttered form and sprinkle with almonds. Bake for 30-40 minutes or to the kitchen smells amaze
To make weekend morning something special we always try to buy some nice coffee to make it special drink it with Oatlys whole fat oat milk for Baristas always
Holding a new baked thick slice of a banana toast drizzling with fuck loads of melted butter is all you need, but since sometimes the more actually is the merrier, therefore we give you our favorite banana toast toppings:
Peanut butter + sliced fresh banana + honey – Salty meets sweet crunchy meets creamy and yes love happens!!
Almond butter + fresh dates + mint- Feeling a little bit tangy moroccan are we?
Nutella + roasted sesams + sea salt – Chocolate needs salt enough said!!
Mascarpone + raspberries + roasted coconut flakes – Who doesn´t love coconut?!
Cream cheese + blackberry marmalade – Our newest take and yes ofc its good
Saving food gives you money to other stuff like fresh flowers parrot tulips is a spring favorite almost always buy just white or lime colored flowers and play with leaves in different greens instead parenthesis yes
OK so maybe you know by now that this is one of our absolute favs in San Francisco
So ofc we had Saras bdays brekkie after doing japanese spaing in croissant heaven
Blood orange croissant bursting with a tangy custard and topped with burned meringue and mint so crisp buttery sweet and fresh at the same time!!
Also tried this mocha croissant with a rich filling of coffee and chocolate topped with cacao almost look like a dino!!
Try this one please passion fruit is always nice!!

We hope that you all had an great food end on 2017 and a even greater start of 2018 doesn’t 8 sound way better than 7 so much more feng shui?!
However looking back 2018 will have a hard job to overdo what 2017 delivered heres is a recap of our crazy but oh so exciting year:
Spent lots of summer days in the Swedish archipelago bathing grilling drinking wine and walking around barefoot concluded that there is nothing like Swedish Skagenröra and learned that everything that can be done one the grill with meat is 10 times better done with veggies eat more corn with butter kids!!
At the end of summer we did a lot of crazy California adventures hiking in red wood forests boating Tahoe meeting wild mustangs and drinking lost of wine in Napa Valley concluded that Swedish pancakes is so much better than American and learned that dessert wine is actually amazing!!
Were home in Lund some weeks of fall doing everything we missed like eating local greens from the farmers markets visiting our favorite cafes for Swedish fika had a gastro experience on Snapphane and cooked a lot of comfy food concluded that Inkognito makes the worlds best truffle tarte and learned that restaurants are great but that we really missed having a proper kitchen of our own!!
Went back to the US and an intense life filled with restaurants and road trips in LA and San Francisco concluded that we really love street food and learned that California has an amaze range of food from all kitchens of the world!!
Arrived home to Sweden just in time for Christmas and had a couple of lovely days in Uppsala and Stockholm with home made food and family which we both missed so much concluded that home made vört with aged cheese and saffron bun is the best brekkie ever and learned that traditions becomes traditions for a reason!!
