Fika - The Art of the Swedish Coffee Break and The Culinary Cyclist by Anna Brones

I’ve put two of my books together as a holiday gift pack: you can snag a signed copy of Fika: The Art of the Swedish Coffee Break AND The Culinary Cyclist for only $25.

Here are some of the recipes you’ll be able to make with these two books:

Cinnamon and Cardamom Buns

Oat Crisp Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

Hazelnut Cake with Coffee

Raw Walnut Butter

Dutch Apple Pie with Cardamom

Five Seed Crackers with Olive Tapenade

Doesn’t that all sound good? You can purchase from the Foodie Underground shop. There’s only a limited amount of books, so if you want them, be sure to snag soon!

For the Love of Cookbooks and Roots

When I was home earlier this summer, I asked my mother for a recipe. She pulled out her worn 3-ring binder. This binder is blue, has yellowed pages falling out of it and has sat in the same place on the bookshelf for as long as I can remember. In it are recipes scratched in her handwriting of her earlier years, additions by her sisters, and almost four decades’ worth of recipe inspiration ripped from magazines.

My natural instinct when I need a recipe is to go to that online thing that starts with G. For my mother, it’s to go to her recipe shelf. If it’s not in the blue book then there has to be a recipe that can be improvised on elsewhere among the culinary titles. In fact, it was only recently that she called to tell me that she was wondering about a specific recipe and went to her computer herself to search around the internet for it (normally she calls me and has me cull the pages and select a few links, her personal search engine so to say).
