Little A’s best pancake recipe

by Scandinavian mum

Little A was home from school last week, with a cold. When she wasn’t busy cuddling up in the sofa with a book she was making her favourite dish, yummy vanilla pancakes. It’s lovely to see how much fun she had in the kitchen! And the self confidence they gain with it -When serving the yummy lunch she proudly proclaimed she wanted to write a cook book! TBC…

Little A’s best pancake recipe
Pancakes is probably my best recipe and I can more or less make them on my own.

3 eggs
3/4 pint of milk
1 cup of plain flour
1 pinch of salt
2 teaspoons Vanilla Sugar
50 g melted butter

Firstly -wash your hands and put on a apron. I also need a small chair to stand on the kitchen.
1. You’ll need someone grown up to help you melting the butter and frying the pancakes.
2. Mix the eggs, poor in the milk and stir.
3. Add flour, salt and vanilla sugar, stir well.
4. Add melted butter.
5. Fry in butter, until golden on each side.

Enjoy warm with sugar, home made strawberry jam or why not my favourite, vanilla ice cream and blueberry jam!

Kids Fashion Week in Oslo with SS12 previews

by Scandinavian mum

Oslo Fashion week exhibits children’s wear twice a year. The main exhibition attracts a lot of buyers, but with an increasing number of exhibitors over the recent years more and more designer choose to launch their collections elsewhere.
Little Scandinavian visited MCH Agenturer that represent labels like Serendipity, Lilleba, Pale Cloud, Esencia and Lucky Boy Sunday.
In collaboration with a few other designers and agents they had their pop-up-showroom during Oslo fashion week in a gorgeous villa centrally located near the west end. We where served coffee upon arrival and could in peace and quiet look through the coming Spring Summer 2012 collections whilst chatting to the ever so lovely and helpful agent.
What we thought: Esencia SS12 is more extensive and beautiful than ever. We particularly loved the soft cotton knit, the summer dresses and shirts. The organic babywear is absolutely lovely too. Lilleba continue with high quality and eco friendly essentials. New for SS12 is the prints based on Norwegian traditions and heritage. We especially liked the one suit in old sea maps print. Really cool! And Pale Cloud for SS12 can be described with only one word; Divine. We simply can’t get over the gorgeous designer clothes for children. The price is on the high end but that is clearly reflected in the luxurious fabrics used and the time spent on attention to details. Like the smock cloud pattern. We adore! And thank you, Monica. We look forward to seeing you again. x
