Making dino crayons!

A fun and simple DIY which makes a great present for someone small and cool :)

I used lots of broken crayons, cut them into pieces and into molds. 

1) make sure your silicone molds are heatproof.
(My Hello Kitty one, wasn't and melted! :() 

2) place in molds, on tray, middle of the oven. Maybe less heat that I was told. 160 degrees celsius ought to do it. It takes 5-10 minutes. Pay close attention and do be careful: melted crayons are like plastic and will burn badly if you are not careful enough!

3) let set in the molds on your counter..


Aaand DRAW :)) 

fun and cute :)

Note: Just to make it clear, this did not go completely as I anticipated. That bring said, it didnt turn out a disaster either!
I will do this again :)

Roxy Marj bear blanket pancakes!

So obsessed with her work! 
You can find her etsy store, here:
And her instagram here 

And here is my pancake recipe!

1 cup plain spelt flour
1 cup milk
2 eggs
30-40 g melted unsalted butter
1 tsp bakingpowder
1 tsp vanilla extract if you want :)

Mix flour and bakingpowder well in a bowl while melting the butter somewhere else. (Micro, stovetop, bowl of water...)

Add the milk, stirr, add the butter, stirr and eggs, stirr then add some vanilla or salt. I usually go for 1 tsp vanilla extract.

Then into the fridge for 30 min. 
(Not crucial, but i find it makes the pancakes better)

Note: (You can use some raw honey to sweeten if you want. Id say 1 tbs ought to cut it.)
Then fry them in a pan on medium heat on a skillet with a supertiny bit of butter/ depending on your skillet!
 (but if you do food artsy stuff, use low heat!)

Then eat and enjoy :)

And, if I dont see you before: HAPPY NEW YEAR!
May 2014 bring you all kinds of wonders and fun <3

With love, Karianne

Norwegian gingerbread recipe A christmas blogg :)

Hi how are you? I am ashamed that I haven't blogged in forever but life is so busy at the moment!!

I wanted to share this amazing recipe!
And it is simply the best ginger bread cookies I have ever tasted! And I have tasted MANY MANY different ginger bread recipes!
Trine has an illustrated step by step so if your norwegian, you can go there and say hi from me :)
250 gram sugar
2 dl light syrup (i used agave and coconut but golden or maple is fine)
1 tbs cinnamon
½ tbs ground ginger
¼ tbs cloves
250 gram unsalted butter
1 tbs bicarb
2 egg
650-800 gram plain flour
Put sugar and syrup in a small pot and bring to boil.
Then add the spices.
Enjoy the smell!
Add the bicarb and whisk quickly.
It will now fluff up and get very light in the colour.
Put the 250g of butter in a big bowl, and put the sugar/syrup mixture on top and stir till the butter is melted. This takes a while, lots of stirring!
Mix the two eggs together. Then add the eggs to the syrup mixture.
Now add the flour, little by little, and knead the dough 
-then into the fridge over night.
Bake in the middle of your oven, no fan on, at around 200-225 degrees Celsius for about 7-10 min. Depending i your oven. Pay close attention.
Decorate with icing sugar mixed with eggwhites! I used two egg whites and mixed inn icing sugar till it was very heavy to move the fork around anymore. And m&m's of course :) 
Do not cover the cookies! You want the icing mixture to set :)
My son said they are "Litchus"
That is delicious in 3 year old language <3
We wish you all a merry christmas and a happy new year!
