Redberry Soup with yoghurt; 52 Weeks of Food

I am proud to claim my Danish Ancestery on my mother’s side.

Taking a step back and springing forward

Now that it’s been a week since the challenge ended and my last blog post. it’s time to “take a step back” and find out what last month’s cooking challenge meant to me. The biggest challenge really was finding the time for it. I decided to take on this challenge in sort of a transition…
