Good Company, Good Food

IMG_2679

In case you haven’t noticed by now, I love food. I thankfully grew up in a family that values good food. My family likes to eat well, loves cooking and enjoys having guests over. We like trying new recipes and combinations and we aren’t overly fussy. We enjoy high quality food (within reason, of course) and have… kind of a no-nonsense attitude when it comes to cooking. We mostly cook simply, easy and quick. We’re also very multicultural when it comes to food. We cook Thai, Italian, Austrian, Nepali and Indian. We eat spicy and we eat sweet. We like cheese and good wine. It’s as simple as that.

Happy Easter to everyone who celebrates it.

We’ve been kinda snowed in here – it’s pretty insane to be honest, but I don’t even have an opinion on this anymore to be honest. Spring will come… some time (soon, I hope).

I started my day with a delicious breakfast in bed, then went to hunt for easter eggs at my grandparent’s house before we had them over for lunch. It was super, super yummy. In my family we love to entertain and cook for guests, so that’s a huge plus.
We enjoy simple, good food. High quality food that you don’t haveto do much with. Something that’s easy and quick to prepare but pretends to be really lavish. Maybe you could say that we just like to cheat ;)
