Bonnie Scotland!!!

Last Thursday me and Freya boarded the Scotland train  bound for the beautiful city of Edinburgh to celebrate granny and granddad's golden wedding anniversary! As the train pulled out of a grey and rainy London we were both full of excitement and expectation as we busily planned all the wonderful things we would do in the days after the celebration was over. A trip to the butterfly farm, a walk along the Water of Leith, a most picturesque and fairly secret river that runs through the heart of Edinburgh where wild flowers grow in abundance and the smell of young garlic is pleasantly strong. Perhaps we would go to the woods to collect some of nature's treasures or just amble up and down the ancient, narrow, winding cobbled streets which make up the city's Old Town scaring each other with witchy tales!!
Well...it has been so windy and rainy here that we've pretty much had to stay indoors. We did make it to the woods, but only just! So many trees had been blown over and we didn't want to end up flattened, so armed with only a few pine cones we admitted defeat and headed home. At last a bit of sunshine between the showers. Thank goodness for gardens and Fairy towns......!

Nyborg's Kitchen, Muswell Hill

Emmie & I visited Nyborg's Kitchen this Afternoon and what a treat!
A Danish Coffee Shop in Muswell Hill, North London with a lovely selection of breakfasts & afternoon/evening treats!

I took Emmie there to have a early dinner and she absolutely loved the Danish meatballs (frikadeller) with potato salad, home-pickled cucumber and homemade rye bread! I loved it too & polished off what she didn't eat, even though I had just finished off my own delicious smoked mackerel - potato salad on the same home-made rye bread topped off with a fried egg,
Mums! (which is yum in Danish)
We ended up hanging out as it started raining and it was just to hyggelig (cosy) to leave...
I had a pot of tea and a slice of cinnamon bread & Emmie had a babyccino & a scrumptious Tiger biscuit.
I can't recommend Nyborg's Kitchen enough!
You will find them at
7 Fortis Green Road
Muswell Hill

Primrose Hill Fair

We survived an incredibly windy Primrose Hill May Fete! Lots of stalls were getting blown over in the wind but we managed to stay upright! Lots of famous faces endorsed our goods, very exciting, and we did rather well again. Looking forward to visiting this lovely part of london once again in June when Niddle Noddle will be making an appearance at the Chalcot Square summer fair (sat 11th June). Street entertainers, face painting, fairground rides etc... Should be fun!
 Hope you can make it...

Danish fødselsdags boller (Birthdaybuns) Recipe

Emmie loves Baking

Danish  fødselsdags boller (Birthday buns) Recipe
 quantity 24 rolls

  •  200ml milk
  • 50g fresh yeast ( Can be found in most healthfood shops)
  • 100g butter
  • 50g sugar
  • 1 / 2 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 500g flour
  • 100g raisins (can add if you like raisins in your house)
  • 1 beaten egg for brushing
 How to make the Buns;
Heat the milk with the butter until it is lukewarm. Dissolve the yeast in the milk and melted butter.Add the rest of the ingredients and knead well (with your hands) until the dough isn't too sticky and has a smooth surface. Put the dough back in the bowl and allow it rise for 30 minutes somewhere warm.
Divide the dough into 2 and form 12 balls of each half. Arrange the buns on 2 baking trays. Leave the buns raise again to about double size (approximately 30 minutes)
Brush with the beaten egg.
Bake at 200 degrees Celsius in the middle of oven for 10 to 12 minutes
And that is how we make these delicious buns which are great for afternoon tea or pack lunches or as me and Emmie do it;
With butter and homemade strawberry jam,
yum yum
