  • en ask färska hallon
  • en ask färska blåbär
  • en liten burk (ca 3 dl) jordgubbssylt

pancake cake.

och vanliga pannkaksingredienser till pannkakorna såklart. detta recept blir till ungefär 25-30 pankisar:

  • 5 dl vetemjöl
  • 12 dl mjölk
  • 4 msk strösocker

råka INTE tappa ett ägg, hoppa över detta steg.

grädda en massa pannkakor! och sen låt dem svalna HELT (annars kommer allt smälta när man monterar).

skölj bären.

när pannkakorna svalnat, bygg ihop hela kalaset. varva jordgubbssylt och vispad grädde efter ungefär var tredje pannkaka (blir för ostabligt och kladdigt att varva mellan varje).

pancake cake.

kolla vad fin och hög den blir med fyllning!

pancake cake.

avsluta med ett tjockt lager grädde, och toppa med bär.

ÄT! <3 så sjukt gott. *checkar av bucket list*

 

today, i finally checked off a bucket list item — to make (and eat) a swedish pancake cake! so me, ana, and emily created this beautiful creation today. here’s the recipe:

SWEDISH PANCAKE CAKE

for the pancakes:
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 40.5 fl oz milk
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup butter
mix flour, salt, sugar and half the milk to a smooth mix.
melt the butter, add the rest of the milk in and whisk it together in the mix. add the eggs.
let the batter sit for 20-30 minutes.
melt a little bit of butter in a hot pan and fry thin pancakes (should amount to about 25-30).
for the cake:
  • 2 cups of heavy whipping cream
  • a box of fresh raspberries
  • a box of fresh blueberries
  • strawberry jam
the cake gets more stable if you mount about three pancakes inbetween fillings.
rotate pancakes with jam, pancakes, whipping cream, pancakes, and so on.
end with whipping cream and top off with fresh berries.
EAT. and thank me later.

en gyllene san francisco-lördag.

in the sunset and at the ocean.

hade en så himla trevlig lördag med hannah för ett tag sedan. vi hängde i hennes bakgård och jagade kattunge som hade rymt ut.

in the sunset and at the ocean.

åt allt som var gott. nachochips, guac, hummus, kex, ost, vin, choklad. livets grejer helt enkelt.

in the sunset and at the ocean.

så småningom anslöt även paul och brendan och vi drog på grillen. så sensommarhärligt på en solig bakgård i san francisco vill jag lova.

in the sunset and at the ocean.

paul hade med sig hembakat bröd, YUM. vi åt så mycket och så länge, hjälp alltså.

in the sunset and at the ocean.

och då passar väl promenad rätt bra efter maten.

in the sunset and at the ocean.

vi började i the sunset och knatade mot golden gate park.

in the sunset and at the ocean.

där finns det sköldpaddor, ser ni lilla kompisen på stenen? mkt cute.

in the sunset and at the ocean.

och så gick vi västerut genom vackra golden gate park där eukalyptusdoften och ljuset alltid är magiskt typ.

in the sunset and at the ocean.

in the sunset and at the ocean.

snart kom vi ut på västra kanten vid väderkvarnen som är alldeles längst mot stilla havet.

in the sunset and at the ocean.

frihet! drakar i guldvind.

in the sunset and at the ocean.

och ockrafärgad sand med skarpa skuggor.

testade nya mobilkameran. älskar den!

in the sunset and at the ocean.

in the sunset and at the ocean.

fan ocean beach alltså. så fint så fint. och speciellt på lördagar som denna.

 

a beautiful saturday with hannah, paul, and brendan where we started with barbeque and eating in a sunny backyard and ended with walking through golden gate park out to ocean beach as the sun started setting. so pretty. <3

bryggeritour och gatufest.

brewery tour & block party.

hej från i lördags! då drog jag på mig min favoritoutfit bestående av weekdaykjol och adidas-magtröja och snörade på mig skorna.

brewery tour & block party.

hoppade in i en uber och klev av här! vid anchor brewery som är san franciscos kanske kändaste bryggeri?

brewery tour & block party.

jag skulle på öltour med siri! kul va. vi välkomnades med den klassiska ölen anchor steam.

brewery tour & block party.

den längst till vänster alltså. minns inte att jag sett den i sverige, men den exporteras tydligen dit. smaka den om ni gillar ipa. jag tycker om den mycket. plus det viktigaste, fin etikett såklart.

brewery tour & block party.

vår guide jarred tog oss igenom bryggeriet genom kopparpumparna där the magic happens. tänk att anchor exporteras till trettio länder och allt produceras exakt här! så ballt.

brewery tour & block party.

vicky approves.

brewery tour & block party.

vi fick höra historier om hur det gick till när anchor grundades, om vad som hände under the prohibition och när bryggeriet brann ner.

brewery tour & block party.

plus smaka en massa öl såklart! mango wheat blev vår nya favorit. yum yum.

brewery tour & block party.

när vi vinkat adjö till anchor prommade vi ett tiotal block från potrero hill ner till mission, där det var gatufest på g! noise pop 20th st block party, närmare bestämt. jag var här förra året med (såhär såg det ut då).

brewery tour & block party.

repris-åt elotes från precis samma matstånd som förra året, hehe. GÖTT minsann.

brewery tour & block party.

och knatade runt och trängdes bland hipsters, samt sprang in i typ 15 pers jag kände.

brewery tour & block party.

jag och siri hittade till slut en spot att stå och lyssna på neon indian på. pop-mysigt med gatufest på sommaren ändå.

brewery tour & block party.

resten av kvällen fotade jag inget, men vi hann med att dricka findrinkar på tjusiga foreign cinema, äta mexikanskt till middag och sen gå ut och hänga på divebarer tills vi stupade tidigt, säkert vid midnatt eller kanske till och med innan (så går det när man sakta dagsdruckit sedan klockan ett). KUL DAG hur som helst. älskar lördagar!!

 

this past saturday, me and siri went to the anchor brewery for a beer tour. it was super cool and fun! also, anchor mango wheat is our new favorite now, hehe.
after the tour, we hung out at the noise pop block party at 20th street, and continued the night with cocktails, dinner, and bar hangout. carpe saturday!

dockhus, färgkoordinering och stans bästa ramen.

sunday with siri.

häng med på min söndag vettja! planen var att gå på poolfest, men det var så kallt och dimmigt på morgonen så det blev ett nej på det.

sunday with siri.

såklart sprack det upp och blev supervarmt ändå, men det kan man ju inte klaga på. jag och siri bestämde att vi skulle mötas upp i mission och ta en spontandag och bara gör vad som helst som vi kände för. ändå bra?

sunday with siri.

jag var ute i god tid och hade tid att promma. mission där jag bor är så fint, fast det är så lätt att bli hemmablind och glömma.

sunday with siri.

dockhusen är färgglada och palmer och kaktusar kantar gatorna. ibland behövs bara en kamera för att påminna sig själv om det!!

sunday with siri.

somrarna i san francisco är så luriga, det är liksom kallare än på hösten vilket kanske är lite märkligt. superdimmigt och kallt på morgnarna och kvällarna, och ett evigt dimtäcke över twin peaks och sutro tower ungefär hela juli varje år.

sunday with siri.

men ganska varmt och soligt om dagarna som tur är.

sunday with siri.

här skulle vi mötas! på fina gatan valencia. för att dricka bloody mary! sånt gör man ju på söndagsförmiddagarna.

sunday with siri.

hej bästis!

sunday with siri.

vi satt i de stora ljusa fönstrena på mexikanska stället west of pecos. om ni är här i stan nån gång borde ni gå hit på middag och beställa deras fish tacos samt michelada verde till. så gott så gott.

sunday with siri.

men vi hade precis frullat, så det blev bara en drink för oss. eller bara och bara…”monster mary” hette den visst och var mer som en SKÅL än en cocktail.

sunday with siri.

men det går väl an.

sunday with siri.

sen gick vi till en butik och köpte med oss alla snacks vi var sugna på just då (det enda rimliga en spontan vi-gör-va-fan-vi-vill-söndag). råkade visst bli färgkoordinerat. inte mig emot!! *instagrammar direkt*

sunday with siri.

och så satt vi och NJÖT av den magi som är en solig söndag i san francisco tills det var dags att äta riktig mat.

och då!!! gick vi till mensho. dvs platsen med LIVETS godaste ramen nånsin. dessutom VEGANSK. och jag gillar inte ens veganmat. alltså OBS GÅ HIT. slut på meddelande.

tack för söndag!

 

on sunday, me and siri just took a super chill day and just did whatever we felt like, all the comfort things. we started with a huge bloody mary at west of pecos, continued with color coordinated picknick in dolores park and ended with world’s (or at least california’s) best ramen — the vegan option at mensho. more sundays like this one plz!!

all the colors of nolita.

pasta, chocolate, and a thirteen year-old.

happy thursday friends! let me show you some weekend hangout with friends lately:

hangout with richie and aryan.

first was with my fantastic friend richie who i hadn’t seen in a pretty long time, since he’d been in LA for a while. but now he was back, and he had his little cousin aryan visiting!

hangout with richie and aryan.

we walked around the mission and did some café hangouts, tried on shoes, and checked out vintage clothes.

hangout with richie and aryan.

then i took us to dolores park for a bit of course! no weekend is complete without some hanging out in dolores park. for me, at least. this is what i looked like! it was warm enough to be dressed like this. in h&m tank top and the vintage style tennis skirt from the fila x urban outfitters collab.

hangout with richie and aryan.

cool boyz.

hangout with richie and aryan.

we walked from the park to the castro, where it’s always colorful and rainbowy. we stopped by at an ice cream shop before we hugged each other goodbye.

hangout with patty.

another weekend hangout lately was with patty. she hit me up for lunch which was perfect, because i had just come from the gym and needed to eat.

hangout with patty.

we went to barzotto, an italian place close to my house where i’ve been wanting to go for a while. the pasta was great! al dente af. plus points for very instagrammable table.

hangout with patty.

we walked slowly through the mission, checking out some stores, and then ending up here, at dandelion chocolate, for some dessert hehe. dandelion is a super small chocolate factory in the middle of the mission. so nice.

hangout with patty.

patty ordered their cold hot chocolate (hehe), and i the house hot chocolate. aaaaaand then i was full for the rest of the day :))))

friends + food + sun + san francisco = some of my favorite things in life <3333

 

två häng på sistone! först med fina richie och hans lilla kusin aryan som var på besök. vi provade skor, kollade vintagekläder och hängde i dolores och castro.
sen ett lunchhäng med patty, vi käkade supergod at dente pasta på barzotto, prommade genom mission och drack chokladdessert på lilla chokladfabriken dandelion.

NICE VA.

my birthday: flowers, sea bass, and a pink dress.

birthday saturday at boxing room.

here’s part two of my birthday! so—after the brunch, dolores park and all that i told you about in my last post, i went home to change. was met by a birthday flower bouquet from my roomie mira! thank yooou. so colorful.

birthday saturday at zuni.

and soon enough, it was time for dinner at this fancy place! this is zuni café, a classic san francisco restaurant—an institution even—that i’ve been wanting to go to for years now. and it finally happened!

birthday saturday at zuni.

a white-cloth table for two at the window on the upper level. very nice indeed.

birthday saturday at zuni.

siri was my dinner company of course. this is actually the third birthday dinner that i eat with her. very lucky to have a friend like her. (#1 here and #2 here).

birthday saturday at zuni.

she gave me a beautiful box filled with gifts!! fantastic. i’ll show you some of them in a separate post later.

birthday saturday at zuni.

we ordered drinks while we waited for food, and cheered for my 26th, for us, and our FANTASTIC friendship. <3

birthday saturday at zuni.

this is how i looked! forgot to take a full body picture, but i had a new pink dress with a plunge neck and flowy sleeves.

birthday saturday at zuni.

and then our food came! just look at my gorgeous sea bass. like a piece of art!

birthday saturday at zuni.

siri ordered a lamb dish. we were so excited—because food, because birthday dinner, because zuni, and because we both had watched the show looking and this is where the character dom works, hehe. he was nowhere to be seen this day though ://// heh

birthday saturday at zuni.

YUM. the food was absolutely SPLENDID. after dinner, we took an uber to southern pacific brewing where we met up with a bunch of my friends, babbled, and had wayyy to many drinks. thanks to everyone for a fantastic birthday!!!

 

andra halvan av min födelsedag! åt middag med siri på fantastiska zuni café och fick tjusigt paket! sen åkte vi till härliga southern pacific brewing och skålade i tusen drinkar och kramades med alla mina kompisar och skrekbabblade tills jag fick ont i halsen. SÅ FIN födelsedag TACK ALLA!!! tack ni som grattat mig online med herreguuuu vad det betyder massor. puss!!

my birthday: brunch, wine, and sun.

birthday saturday at boxing room.

on saturday the 29th, the day after mine and ivana’s dinner, it was my birthday! i woke up early enough to see the sun rise over my backyard, which rarely happens and which was really nice.

birthday saturday at boxing room.

birthday brunch was on the schedule! and this is where i had wished for. boxing room in hayes valley! they do new orleans-style southern/cajun-type cuisine.

birthday saturday at boxing room.

my favorite siri was there of course! and as per usual, we were on time (aka 30-40 mins earlier than the rest of the california population eheee).

birthday saturday at boxing room.

but it was ok, because it was my birthday and boxing room was really pretty inside (which you can’t really tell from the outside).

birthday saturday at boxing room.

also, we had drinks! a strong tropical one for siri and a watery bloody mary for me.

birthday saturday at boxing room.

yay vicky 26!!! thanks for celebrating with me siri!

birthday saturday at boxing room.

finally our brunch company arrived: lance!

birthday saturday at boxing room.

and daniel! ok boyz let’s eat now honestly

birthday saturday at boxing room.

and so we did! siri ordered this cute frittata. i had fried catfish po’boy with hushpuppies. good but not as photogenic! last time i had po’boy was actually on my birthday weekend last year. yum.

birthday saturday at boxing room.

hi from a one year older little person! :) i was dressed in a new off-shoulder top, sharp black sunglasses and black skirt so that i had a 60’s pinup vibe going. one of my favorite styles, in other words!

birthday saturday at boxing room.

speaking of favorite—we of course had to follow brunch with hangouts in dolores park, my fav spot in sf, if anyone had missed that…

birthday saturday at boxing room.

the weather was fantastic and we drank rosé in red solo cups which was nice. after a few hours of hangouts in the sun, it was time to go home for a bit and change for dinner! but that’ll be in the next post. SUCH a nice first half of my birthday!

 

första halvan av min födelsedag! vaknade i soluppgången vilket var ovanligt men fint. sen var det födelsebrunch på g. hade bestämt boxing room som är amerikanska södern/new orleans-style på maten. åt och 26 års-skålade med siri, lance och daniel. sen hängde vi i dolores och drack rosé tills det var dags att byta om inför middag (men det kommer i nästa inlägg). så fin första halva!!

pre-birthday michelin dinner.

hey there. sorry for my silence the last couple of days. i have been feeling a little off, and it has just been feeling stressful with some social media and such. just like i’ve seen happening with other bloggers out there, i think i’m gonna switch down the posting frequency in here. at least for now.

oh well! as you know, it was my birthday on saturday. but my celebration started already on friday night:

birthday friday at al's place.

after work, i got ready and walked the couple of blocks from me to the location of my friday night plans.

birthday friday at al's place.

the sun was just setting and the mission looked fantastic. this time of year is really great birthday weather always.

birthday friday at al's place.

this was where i was going! al’s place, which is a veggie-centric (but not vegetarian) restaurant with a michelin star. i had booked weeks and weeks in advance and had gotten a table! yay.

birthday friday at al's place.

my friend and old roommate ivana was my dinner companion for the night which was nice, since i’ve barely seen her since i moved back from new york.

birthday friday at al's place.

al’s was so cute, with plants and lights along the walls, and the servers dressed in differently patterned clothes.

birthday friday at al's place.

this was me! hello hi.

birthday friday at al's place.

in an all-black dress and platform shoes which you can’t see.

birthday friday at al's place.

we ordered rosé bubbles of course, because celebrations!

birthday friday at al's place.

and then food. they offer small plates to order several of, and sharing them. we got a few, starting with this one.

birthday friday at al's place.

trout, potato, and turnip something. very cute. our second and third plates (which i didn’t shoot pics of) were a campanelle with asparagus pesto and a sunchoke curry with black-lime cod and citrus jewels. *food tv show voice*. i realize this might sound like gibberish and it kind of did to us too, but it was lovely however.

birthday friday at al's place.

we ended with sharing a caramel-filled brownie with peanut icecream. yum yum yum. and then we went into the friday night and drank what felt like 10 glasses of wine (don’t worry though, it wasn’t). great start to my birthday celebrations!

 

jag fyllde år i lördags som ni kanske vet? hehe klart ni gör. började firet på fredagkväll på flotta michelinrestaurangen al’s place med ivana! vi drack rosébubbel och delade på fyra spännande knäppa rätter. var himlans gott! och sen gick vi ut i rödvinsnatten. så bra start på födelsehelgen!

och sorry förresten för några dagars tystnad. kommer dra ner lite på bloggandet framöver, kanske tre-ish gånger i veckan istället för sex. ok? <3

just a lil sunday brunch.

helloooo new week. here’s just four quick pics from my yesterday.

brunch with mj.

weekend brunches is like the best thing! yesterday was also a great 1 o clock brunch mode because i was a little tired from going out the night before, and also hungry from just working out.

brunch with mj.

my brunch friend for this sunday was mj! i hadn’t seen him in forever, and then i ran into him at a bar in the castro on saturday, so we “oh my goood”-ed and made brunch plans for the morning after. i looked up yelp for a place i hadn’t been to (anyone else who loves trying out new places instead of just going to one same spot all the time?). chose this one in the mission—hog & rocks.

brunch with mj.

i had a breakfast sandwich with homefries and a bloody mary, and mj did a scramble with homefries and a mimosa. so brunchy, right? (also sorry for the awkward lighting here)

brunch with mj.

and afterwards, we got so full and needed to walk it off, and went to the east side of the mission towards potrero hill to this pretty place, sightglass. sat down with a latte for a while before heading out and hugged each other goodbye. and then i laid down in bed and basically didn’t leave it for the rest of the day.

hope you had a great weekend filled with great food yeah?? HAPPY MONDAY EITHER WAY. <3

 

mao

i lördags sprang jag in i mj när jag var ute i castro och dansade med siri, så vi gjorde brunchplaner till morgonen efter, så igår möttes vi upp på hog & rocks i mission och käkade massa gott och babblade ikapp om livet sedan vi sågs sist. jag älskar fan att bruncha!
