How do we survive the absolute grayest month of the year? Answer - Novent!

As usual, I sneakily start with Christmas when there are two weeks left until Advent, both to brighten up the November darkness but also because every year I think that December is a little too short for all the Christmas movies you want to watch, all the recipes you want try and to buy Christmas presents and tinker in peace and quiet. That's why I give myself two extra weeks every year, so now I'm at it and thought I'd show you what I've started with here at home to create a little atmosphere without it being too much too soon :)

This little white porcelain church has been given a place in the window! It's new for this year and thinking of buying a new house every year until I have a whole, nice street of small buildings and houses :) I bought my HERE.

A bunch of Amaryllis in the kitchen, so luxurious! I took them with some pink stripes so that it wouldn't be too cute this early. Don't forget to poke a hole in the stem at the top with a needle or put sticks inside the stem of your Amaryllis to make them stand taller.

Beautiful winter flowers on the balcony too of course.

I also wanted to start a little cautiously with the Christmas baking and then these chewy gingerbread-flavored caramel slices felt like the perfect stealth start! They are also so easy to make and go in a snap.


You need:

100 g butter, room temperature

1 dl caster sugar

2 tsp gingerbread spices

2 tbsp light syrup

2.5 dl wheat flour

1 tsp baking powder

0.5 dl pearl sugar

Do this:

  1. Set the oven to 175 degrees.

  2. Whisk together butter, sugar, gingerbread spice and syrup.

  3. Mix the flour with the baking powder and mix together with the rest of the ingredients to form a dough.

  4. Divide the dough into three equal parts and shape each part into an approx. 30 cm long roll.

  5. Place the rolls on a sheet of baking paper and flatten them a little with a fork. Sprinkle with granulated sugar.

  6. Bake in the middle of the oven for 10–12 minutes.

  7. Take the sheet out of the oven and cut directly into diagonal cuts.
