Finally they are back!

One of Emilio's favorite activities to do when it's spring/summer and fall, is to sit on the swing for hours! Countless of laughter. Pushing. More speed etc. Pure Joy! 




I have been thinking about one thing and I need your help to decide!!! .. Should I blog on English or Swedish!? I've tried to put the translation options in my blog but I don't know if it works. Now we all know that Google translator doesn't translate good but at least you would know what I wrote if I decide to write on Swedish.

Comment please and let me know 🧡




How to bake this traditional cake of Sweden

I love to bake. Cakes, cookies etc. You name it. Today I decided to bake a traditional cake in Sweden. Kärleksmums (this cake has many names but most people say this name). 

Down below you can read the recipe and how to make it.
I don’t know if you have this cake where you live but this is
a traditional soft cake on the table for Swedish fika.

 




The recipe is valid for 30 pieces

225 g Butter
2 dl milk
5 eggs
4½ dl of sugar
1½ tablespoon vanilla sugar
1¼ dl cocoa
3 teaspoon baking soda
6 dl wheat flour

Glaze:

75 g Butter
¾ dl strong coffee
½ dl cocoa
1½ tablespoon vanilla sugar
5 dl icing sugar

Garnish:
1 dl coconut flakes

How do bake

1. Set the oven to 175 °.

2. Grease and brush a high-edge shape, 25×30 cm or place in a baking sheet. (the pan)

3. Melt the butter, pour into the milk and let it cool.

4. Beat eggs and sugar puffy, preferably with electric mixer. Sift down vanilla sugar, cocoa, baking soda and flour through a sieve. Add butter and milk and mix all to a smooth smear.

5. Pour the batter into the mold. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 20 minutes.

Glaze:

1. Melt the butter in a saucepan, add coffee, cocoa, vanilla sugar and icing sugar and mix well.

2. Remove the cake from the oven, leave it for a while. Wide the glaze over the hot cake and sprinkle the coconut flakes.

Which beauty product is a must for you?

Before I had Emilio I was obsessed with skin care, having "spa night at home" nights 2 times a week etc. But after having him ~ the time and my energy has slowly vanished. I have been hoping to get the energy back and I can slowly feel that it is! So I'm gonna make it a routine again to have all my skin care products and nights again ~ yay!
 

On PC /Laptop the pictures will look grainy. Not good! I only use Phone when I take photos
I love using products from  7th Heaven. Normally I find these products at DollarStore {In Sweden. Don't know where you guys can find those products in your country}. 
 
Which beauty product is a must for you?
My to go to products I must have when having a "spa night at home" is peel off masks and mud masks. I'm constantly looking for new products to try and use so let me know if you have any recommendations!
 


 
Simple post, a short one. 
 
 





Honest Review of: MAC FOUNDATION


I shared this review on my instagram stories before but I thought I could share it here with you guys as well. There of the screenshots of my stories (bad quality I know!) 


MAC Foundation 

Written off from the first picture.

On the next picture ya’ll will see the today’s makeup. I decided to give the foundation an other try. IT WENT HORRIBLY WRONG!

 Back story: I went to a store in the city asking an professional who worked there to help me find a foundation in my skin tone / skin color. After I bought the foundation I was happy! I finally had a  foundation in my shade…Wow I was wrong.. It looked so good in the store when she did a bit on my face etc but damn. The Orange / yellow ish color = horrible / disaster!


Today I decided to give the foundation a second try and oh my god. NO! I’ll throw this foundation in the bin /trash. No matter how much I worked with it – Concealer, powder etc you name it. It was too late… I worked down my neck etc to avoid that ”mask” looking makeup and oh my god… I’m gonna remove the foundation after showing you guys on the next post.



To see full picture of the middle one with my whole face where you can see the difference between face and neck , CLICK HERE To see the full picture of the last picture with a better pic showing the skin tone I have and the foundation (this is ridiculous!) CLICK HERE 

 

I believe in honest reviews and that's why I shared my opinion and honesty on this review. Remember that I am not bashing / trashtalking the brand . If this foundation works for you - AMAZING! I'm so glad for you but it sure didn't work for me. 



I'll from time to times write reviews here on my blog but also on my instagram { @ emmasiingh } so make sure to follow me there and here! 







He woke up to a surprise! I'm so proud of him!

Goodmorning my beautiful friends! I hope you all are having an amazing day!! It's morning here in Sweden and I can honestly say ~ I'm good {not so much cough} but I have a massive headache 🙅🏻‍♀️ no Bueno! 

This post will be a little more insight of my son and his autism. Autism is something I learn about all the time. I'm new to this so bear with me that I might talk a bit about it. It's a whole new territory for me. 

He woke up to a surprise! Last night I finally had it delivered! As you might know my son has autism and for me this will bring me so much joy! Well one of all the things actually. My son loves to jump and goof around when he is in that mood which I love! During last week I had a message on Facebook with a link sent to me with an ad off a thing I knew Emilio {son} would love. And I finally got it delivered to me last night. Because I don't have a driving license or a car I couldn't get it myself ~ sigh. Working on the license though! ~ but a lovely soul in my area where I live went and got it for me. Thank you Michelle!

C h e a p investment but wow I know it will give him so much joy, happiness and laughter! What did I buy Emilio? A cute small trampoline. Perfect for him! We live in an apartment so having those big trampolines was a no no of course! But the AD was of a trampoline for indoors {I think it's for workout at home} and it's perfect!

Emilio woke up, went to the living room as usual and instantly ran over to the trampoline when he saw it. He rushed back to gather all his stuffed animals and his favorite blanket.. And now he is sitting on a small piece of corner on it 😂👏🏻 All the stuffed animals takes 90% of the trampoline but he doesn't care.

Learning so far about AUTISM I have discovered that my son {not sure how autism works to be honest, I'm still learning!} aren't a fan of toys. {even though he has toooo much of them!}. He has a few toys he likes his stuffed animals, 2 books, balls and blanket. Nothing else. And he is very smart for his age to be honest! Waow! He turns 4 this year and already knows how to help me with the laundry {separate the clothes, load the washer, unload and hang the laundry to dry}, he knows how to do the dishes, sweep the floors and mop it. He is very smart when it comes to technology / phone / tablet ~ he knows how to cast {chrome cast} from YouTube, what to see, how to start etc. It's ridiculous how smart he is but I'm so proud! 

My son is also non verbal which means he doesn't talk. He don't really know how to talk but he has started a little! He says a few words and I'm beyond proud! 

Swedish, English and some Punjab words. Insane! I wish I could write all the words down but to be honest, I'm so happy and surprised on how much my son can so I can't remember exactly all the words. But some of the words Emilio can say is; dad, baby (both on English and Swedish), Come on Punjab, Grandpa on Punjab and a lot more. 

He is very good with body language when it comes to dancing to songs ~ head, shoulders, knees and toes for an example. 

I know this has turned out to become a "bragging / WOW I'M SO PROUD" post but I'm sitting here with a big smile on my face, thinking of all the amazing things Emilio has learned on such a short time! 






Domain

I have now updated my design here on my blog. Reason? I bought a domain! Woho! It won't start work until next week though - bummer but when it's working - my link will be emmas.nu  

Excited!! 

Short post but I just wanted to announce that! More blog posts is coming! I've been really ill these couple of days but I'm getting better now so stay tuned or what to say ^^, haha!




Morning

Goodmorning my beautiful friends! I have been up for a little bit over an hour because Emilio decided it was a perfect time to wake up. Gaahh I'm so tired. The time is currently 5.35am.

Today's plans is to take care of the laundry I did last night. I didn't do it last night (fold it) because I was so exhausted afterwards. I fell asleep so fast!






Taste by India ~ Garam Masala

As you might know (if you know me irl or have read the info about me on the right side of my blog), my husband are from Punjab, India. He use only spices - non fabric / bag spices. I don't know how to explain. Anyway, our son loves strong food especially with spices from M's country. So today I decided to make a homemade Garam Masala from the beginning. 
 
I noticed I forgot to take picture on all the spices. Typical me. I took photos on everything else but not that. Ugh. Oh well.. If you want to do this dish but don't have all the spices, I have a tip for you! I don't know how it is where you live but in Sweden we have a brand named Santa Maria and they actually have a "bag" with all the spices mixed and ready to put in the food. On their bag it says you should add ~ Chick peas, spinach, hallumi and cream ~ but I never add those stuff.  Instead I add those ingredients I like ~ Chicken breasts, onion, mushrooms and carrots. So this recipe will be written with that. 
 
 
You will need {to do mine} 
English     3 big chicken breasts, 8 mushrooms, 3 - 4 big onions. 5 big and thick carrots. Cream 5dl. Spices; Ginger, Cumin, Coriander, Cardamom, Cinnamon, Black Pepper, Cayenne Pepper, Carnation, Salt, Peppers, Onions, Garlic and Sugar. 
 
Remember to add the spices that suits YOU! I never measure the spices, I just add them to my food so important that you have to taste and feel how it is like you want it. BUT Never try it on the chicken! 
 
Swedish   3 stora kycklingfiléer, 8 champinjoner, 3 - 4 stora lök (gul), 5 stora och tjocka morötter. Kryddor; Ingefära, Spiskummin, Koriander, Kardemumma, Kanel, Svartpeppar, Cayennepeppar, Nejlika, Salt, Paprika, Lök, Vitlök och socker 
 
Kom ihåg att krydda som passar dina smaklökar! Jag mäter aldrig kryddor utan jag kryddar bara så det är viktigt att du smakar och känner efter så att det blir som du vill ha det! MEN Prova aldrig det som är på kycklingfiléerna! 
 
English; 
Chicken Breasts ~ Defrost them in boiling hot water for quicker, 30mins (or more, depending on how warm water you use) before you can use them.  Meanwhile, 
1. Cut and chop the onions into small/medium sizes. 
2. Cut and chop the mushrooms. Not thin! 
  { put them on the same plate. Add Black Pepper on top ~ see the pics } 
3. Cut the carrots and put them on the side. 
4. Turn on the stove on full heat. Take a pan, add butter and let it melt completely. 
5. Fry the onions and mushrooms together 
6. Turn down the heat to medium. Stir and fry the onions and mushrooms til they get golden brown. 
Meanwhile, cut the chicken breasts into medium sizes. NOT THIN! Important! 
7. Spice them with black pepper, Cayenne pepper, onion, garlic, cardemom and cinnamon. And let it set for few minutes. 
8. Put the onions and mushrooms back on the plate and now
9. Add a lot of butter and Dump the chicken in the fryer. Stie often and make sure it doesn't burn. Add more butter if needed. Put a lid on but check it often and stir.  Let it it boil in the water that comes from the chicken and butter. 
10. After a while, add the onions and mushrooms. 
11. Add the cream and the carrots and stir. Turn down the heat to low but not too low! Add some spices and mix it all together.  
 
After a while, taste it and add more spices if you want more taste. Let it cook on low for 20 mins. In meanwhile, boil the rice, fix salad etc. 
 
 
 
Swedish   
Kycklingbröst ~ Defrosta dem i hett vatten i snabbare 30 minuter (eller mer, beroende på hur varmt vatten du använder) innan du kan använda dem.  Under tiden,
 
 1. Skär lökarna i små / medelstora storlekar. ● 2. Skär svampen.  Inte tunn  {lägg dem på samma tallrik.  Krydda med svartpeppar över dom ~ se bilderna ● 3. Skär morötterna och lägg dem på sidan. ● 4. Häv igång spisen / plattan på full värme.  Ta en kastrull, tillsätt smör och låt den smälta helt. ● 5. Stek löken och svampen tillsammans ● 6. Sänk ner värmen till medium.  Rör om och stek löken och svampen tills de blir guldbruna. ● Skär samtidigt kycklingbrösten i medelstora storlekar.  INTE TUNNViktig! ● 7. Krydda kycklingbitarna med svartpeppar, Cayennepeppar, lök, vitlök, kardemumma och kanel. Och låt det "marineras" i några minuter. ● 8. Lägg sedan tillbaka löken och svampen på tallriken (som dom låg på när dom var råa) ● 9. Tillsätt mycket smör och dumpa kycklingen i stekpannan.  Rör om ofta och se till att den inte bränns fast.  Tillsätt mer smör om det behövs.  Lägg på ett lock men kontrollera kycklingen ofta och rör om.  Låt det koka i vattnet som kommer från kycklingen och i smöret. ● 10. Tillsätt löken och svampen efter ett tag. ● 11. Tillsätt grädden och morötterna och rör om.  Sänk värmen till låg men inte för låg!  Tillsätt kryddor och blanda allt ihop.
 
 Efter ett tag kan du smaka på det och lägga till fler kryddor om du vill ha mer smak.  Låt det koka lågt i 20 minuter.  Under tiden, koka riset, fixa sallad etc. 
 
 
{ left } Onions and Mushrooms together / {  right } the chicken together before cream.
 
 
Final result 👏🏻 so yummy! So tasty!
