ilove....Sophie Dahl's voluptuous delights

Hi darlings, i got back from my cocoon. I needed it I guess.... sometimes i feel like i'm a bit like the main character in my all time favorite movie "into the wild".
 I just get fed up with all material things and see no sense in buying stuff and decorating my house. ( ok a small exception for the new winterboots i bought :0
So i started of by making a new header, this might not be the final one ( i think it's a little big) what do you think about it? Gosh i missed you all!I will try to catch up on some of your posts.

While i was in my cocoon i did do a lot with my other obsession, cooking.
My new heroe is Sophie Dahl and her latest cookbook, "Miss Dahl's voluptuous delights"  . I know it's been on the market for a while, but i just started to appreciate it.
My favorite breakfast in the morning now is the Blueberry strawberry smoothie.
The secret ingredient i looooove is peanut butter.Believe me this smoothie contains everything you need to kick start your day!

                                                                 So here is the recipe

Serves 2
115g/1 cup of frozen blueberries
200g/1 cup of frozen strawberries
1  scoop of protein powder ( i like the vanilla tasted ones)
250ml/1 cup of soya milk
Honey to taste ( i never need it)
Peanut butter (optional)

Just throw everything in a blender and sip it through a straw. Enjoy!



  1. Good to have you back!
    We all need our cocoons every now and then.

  2. Nice to have you back-i love the header but then again i am partial to big images:-). Happy Thursday! xx

  3. I´m so glad you´re back:)!
    Think the header looks great. Very inspiring pics. from your home I suppose!?
    Love the movie 'Into the wild' and think a lot of us humans living this century can relate to that feeling of being tired of all of the material goals(even though I am for sure a material girl:) )
    Take good care!!!
    Lots of Love from Sweden!

  4. yay! welcome back! hope you're felling better now :)

    and I love starting my day with a good fruit smoothie as well,
    gives me lots of energy for the day :)

  5. How nice to see you back. The header is fab...!

  6. Love the new header, gorgeous! So glad you're back! Sophie doesn't look as voluptuous as she used to :(. Maybe it's the protein shakes! XX!

  7. This huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge hug is so big it will reach out over the miles to welcome you back :)))))
    I just SO understand about the cocoon, and I even MORE understand about the winter boots- mine are blue suede cowboy boots with the SNUGGLIEST fur lining! I bought them this week, and I'm not feeling the teeniest bit guilty!

  8. Hi Linda! Nice to see you back online. I love the header, but it seems to be a little too much to the right? Peanutbutter in a smoothie? Sounds terrible, but I don't like peanutbutter anyway (altough I never tried....)

  9. Welcome back dear friend! And good for you for enjoying cooking ~ now perhaps you can come to my house and share your talent ~ for alas I can not cook! Except for toast. :)

    Happy weekend!

  10. Oooh so good to see you're back! :)
    It really seems your little hiatus was good for you. I like the new header a lot, once you've adjusted it to the right size it will look very nice!
    And oh yummy this smoothie sounds so good I must try it soon! But I don't even own a real blender aah (I'm not passionate about cooking - obviously)... maybe I'll get one for Christmas haha.

    Have a wonderful weekend! :)

  11. Happy you are back! Love the new header and love blueberry smoothies... I omit the strawberries and put banana in mine! xo

  12. Sounds like you have had a great time!!! I did too in Tuscany..oh, what a beautiful place!! I love your new header actually - very nice pictures, fits your style! And strawberries in a smoothie can never fail!! Have a lovely new week!! xoxo's Kristin

  13. Love Sophie Dahl, although haven't got the book yet...Love the new header too.

  14. I'm a fan of Sophie as well. I own her book and can't wait to experiment her recipes!!!!
