Swedish Treats

There have been so many holidays overlapping each other the past weeks. Eid ul Adha, Christmas, Hannukah and New Years.

Although we don't celebrate christmas, the traditional Swedish baking that is done is very much part of our yearly routine. We fill the table and stomach with lussebullar (saffron buns), knäck (a kind of fudge with hazelnuts), kokosbollar (chocolate oatmeal balls covered in coconut) and pepparkakor (ginger bread cookies), to name a few. Stockholm, Sweden.


  1. This just glows with festivity and warmth and all things good! A very beautiful and uplifting pic!!!

  2. Thank you Shalom!

    Well it is one of the coziest time of year in my opinion :) Have a lussebulle! :)

  3. That sounds good, so I will have a lussebulle, but.......what does that mean??? :D

  4. Well something as yummy as a saffron bun would be yours! :) (Made by moi, of course...adding to the yumminess lol)

  5. OMG- i love kokosbollar! my friend got the recipe and made them for me in germany. seriously mouth-watering. and, because they're made of oatmeal, you can totally convince yourself that they're not THAT bad for you (just forget all the butter).

  6. Oh you tried them Miki!

    lol you are soo right...they are the "healthy" option on the table!

  7. Unquestionablу belieѵe that whіch you saiԁ.
    Yοur favοuritе reason sеemеd tо be on thе
    net the ѕimplest factoг to bear in mind of. I say to you, I certainly get irκеd while otheг folks conѕideг ωorriеs that theу just ԁo not reаlize about.
    Υοu managed to hit the nail uρon the tοp and also outlіned out thе entire thing without haѵing ѕide-effects ,
    pеοple could tаke а signal.
    Will likely bе back to gеt more.
