I'm organizing all of my CD's and DVD's these days. I want to get rid of them, but not throw them away just yet. After tips on one of my previous posts  on how to organize my CD's, I found a CD binder from Claes Ohlson for 160 cd's/dvd's. I think I need one more and I will have a lot of extra storage space in my livingroom:) Yey!:) Have a sunny saturday! :) (at least it is a bright and sunny day here in Oslo today:)

Yes, I've failed the no-shopping month I planned. I was stupid enough to look at, and found this norwegian vintage cabinet at a very reasonable price. I could not resist. I have failed  my no-shopping month project. I haven't shopped anything else this month, but I could not resist this one. I feel like a failure, but at the same time I'm soooo happy with this cabinet. I have been looking for one like this for ages, so it's so typical that I found it now:) Well, I'm not going to shop anything more for awhile now:) Have a wonderful sunday evening! Tomorrow I'll be off to a children-camp for a few days. Have a great week as well!;)

Lazy sunday. Waffles, strawberry's and coffee. 
I've been going through my closet and things, throwing away what I don't use anymore. I'm giving it all away to local fleamarket. It feels good to get rid of junk.

I've made this cake that I found on Sukkertøy for øyet a couple of times now. And everyone loves it and asks for the recipe. I have made some small alterations with the recipe (which I have a tendency to do with every recipe..:)

This is how I make it:

125 g butter
100 g dark chocolate
200 g brown sugar
3 eggs
40 g flour
2 tablespoon cocoa powder
0,5 teaspoon bakingpowder
200 g Philadelphia cream cheese (or other cream cheese)
100 g white chocolate

Melt the butter, dark chocolate and brown sugar. Let it cool down before you stir the eggs in, one by one. Sift the flour, cocoa and baking powder into the batter and pour it into the prepared pan. (about 24 cm).

Melt the white chocolate. Let it cool down a little bit, and add cream cheese and stir gently.

Ad the white mixture in dots around in the brown cake batter.
 Drag a fork through the white to create a marble pattern.
Bake at 180 degrees in about 35 minutes at the lowest level.

Sorry my picture is not the best, but I concentrated on eating instead of taking photos:)...or it didn't even cross my mind:) You can go here and see Sukkertøy for øyet's picture's that's more informative:)

last day

It's the last day of my easter holiday. Outside it's snowing/raining.  I'm doing some housework and clearing up. I think it's time to get rid of many of my CD's. (and I have many..) It's a bit sad..:( The CD era is over I guess.  But what do I do with them? I've heard that fleamarkets and secondhand shops don't want them anymore, since it's so many out there. Any suggestions? Give away on perhaps...but not sure anyone wants them...I don't know... It feels so wrong to just through them away..mostly because they have sentimental value for me. I might just stack them up in my basement, but for what? I don't have much storage space. If you have any tips let me know:)
Enjoy the last day off:)

There's a lot of metallic and geometric shaped jewlery this season. Here's some inexpensive ones: Necklace from Curious creatures, rings from Lindex, rings from hm, ring, origami necklace and ring from Monki.

Since I've decided to have a no-shopping month this month I'm only looking:) (You can read more about it here.) But I'm allowed to dream aren't I ? :) As you see I haven't shifted focus yet, but I'm getting there...I hope...

Finally we have some time off. It's easter holiday. It's time to relax and enjoy each other and good food:)  I made some banana bread which Ozzy loves. Here's the recipe:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs , beaten
  • 4 bananas (soft ripen ones are the best) , finely crushed
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla  
  • 1-2 teaspoons cinnamon 
Cream together butter and sugar.
Add eggs and crushed bananas.
Combine well.
Sift together flour, soda and salt. Add to creamed mixture. Add vanilla and cinnamon.
 Pour into greased and floured loaf pan.
Bake at 175 celsius for 50-60 minutes.
Keeps well, refrigerated.

Very simple and good:)
