A Productive Extra Long Weekend

Hi everyone! I haven't been very active on this blog lately, you know the usual reason - am too busy with work!

We're having a short working week :) Tuesday and Wednesday are bank holidays here. M and I finally get to rest. I've been busy in the kitchen making homemade strawberry jam, baking my favourite Finnish cinnamon rolls (pulla) and today I made matcha ice-cream!

I love summers. With the longer and warmer days, it always motivates me to start doing what I enjoy the most - baking and crafting. I didn't have a chance to do so last year because of our wedding planning.

It's the strawberries season. We've been talking about going strawberry picking at the nearest strawberry farm but M didn't quite like the idea. We ended up buying 2.5kg of fresh picked strawberries on Monday and made our own jam. I'm glad how it turned out.
The strawberries go great with the matcha ice-cream. Now I'm thinking about making strawberry sorbet.


  1. all self-made! wow! i wish i was as talented a chef! :-) both icecream and jam look really yummy!

  2. I love strawberries in summer too :)
