Homemade Ice Lollies

A little while ago I read about the Ice Kitchen's 50 Lolly Recipes in Stylist magazine and loved the idea of making ice pops that aren't just frozen orange juice / plain yoghurt. When the postman delivered my ice lolly molds yesterday, I got started straight away. First, I tried raspberry & lime (here), then cappuccino (recipe in the book) and, to top it off, I went for mojito (here). The results are amazing and considering I still have 47 other recipes left to try, I can't wait for summer to kick off properly.

Copenhagen

Nyhaven


A couple of weeks ago, Joe and I went for a short break to Copenhagen - mainly just to clear our heads and get out of London for a bit and it totally did the trick. We didn't really plan ahead as the city seemed relatively small with few sights. Upon arrival we picked our top spots (TivoliDesign MuseumChristianiaLittle Mermaid, Designer Zoo,  Normann Copenhagen, Christiansborgand wandered around town for the rest of the time. The best discovery was probably the little port of Nyhavn with all its little caf├ęs along the side. 

We had restaurant bookings for two of the nights; one at a modern New Nordic restaurant called Radio and another at a hip Danish place called Madklubben followed by cocktails at Lidkoeb. Although entirely different, we had a great time at both food places and I can absolutely recommend them.
