There are few things more wonderful than a hand-knit dress and a kitchen smelling of fresh basil on a Sunday afternoon. The day before the start of a busy week is very important, as it is the last chance for everyone to relax and spend time together as a family. This weekend my mom had been busy knitting a dress for my baby sister, who is on the way, and due in June. I remember wearing my mom's knitted clothes when I was younger, and surprising as it may sound, they were never of the type that were embarassing to wear in public. (I'll post a photo of the dress once my mom is finished with it).

I have a very simple recipe to share with you readers this week : ) It's from a cookbook my mom had bought at a warehouse this summer. She loooves savory baking, and, unlike me, she doesn't really seem to have a sweet tooth. These are great with tea, coffee, and milk, though, though they contain no sugar. I made them about three times this week ! The best thing about this is that only whole-wheat flour is used, and you get lots of protein from the seeds : )
And, to all of you that did something special this week, Happy Belated Valentine's Day ! : )
I would also like to thank Cafe Johnsonia for being so supportive and responsive these past few weeks ! It's great to have some wonderful inspiration and receive feedback as a new blogger; her page is really great and every one of her creations is so lovely and unconventional. If you're reading this, I would definitely click that link and have a look at what she's making : )

Soup is something that has always been in the household. We may not always have a main course prepared, but there is always soup in the fridge, and bread in the pantry. Inspired by the beautiful colours of autumn and my nostalgia for warmer weather, I prepared this Roasted Autumn Vegetable Soup, and Classic French Bread to start off the weekend.
When it comes to soup, I never use or follow formally written recipes, or measure/weigh any of the ingredients. After all, you can't go wrong with throwing a bunch of beautiful, fresh ingredients into a pot !
