Stockholm’s Best Kanelbullar

October 4th is Kanelbullar Dag in Sweden. A Kanelbullar for those who aren’t familiar with the Swedish pastry, is the most delicious Cinnamon Bun ever! Since moving here two years ago I have eaten plenty of these bad boys and I never get sick of them. I’ve tried many other popular Swedish pastries and deserts, but I always come back to the Kanelbullar as my favourite. Which got me thinking, which one is my favourite, and do other people agree? So to answer this question, I turned to google to find out which one others thought was the best in town. Some I had tried and others I hadn’t yet. So in order to make an informed decision I set out to try each one on the list. I now have a new favourite, a review of the ones I tried, and a few extra kilos 🙂 Continue reading “Stockholm’s Best Kanelbullar”

Visiting Home – My Australian Holiday: Melbourne

I spent my second week in Australia, in Melbourne where I grew up. I’d arranged with my best friends husband to surprise her one night and then spend a few days with them. The surprise worked out really well! My friend and her husband were enjoying a night out without the kids when I turned up to surprise her. She had absolutely no idea that I was coming. It was so exciting to see the look on her face when she saw me! We’ve been friends now for nearly 25 years and even though we have often lived far apart, spending time together is always just like it was in high school. We even spent the next day hanging out on the couch, eating chips and gravy (another Aussie favourite of mine) just like we did in the old days.
