Warm drinks for cold nights

I very rarely put my own work on my blog but thought I might share these with you, they seem to fit so well with the mood of the season. I did these few years ago for Gestgjafinn, a magazine on food and wine here in Iceland. Photographer was Kristinn Magnusson and it was a very dear friend of mine, the domestic goddess Sirry, who did the tasty recipes for this feature. All the drinks were warm, exotic and oh so perfect for those dark autumn/winter nights when you want nothing more than to cuddle up on the sofa and make yourself as comfortable as possible. 

 Mayan Chocolate

1 red chili
4 dl water
1 l milk
1 vanilla
1 cinnamon stick
200 grams dark chocolate, chopped
2 tablespoons sugar or honey
2 dl whipped cream

(1 dl equals 100 milliliters, approx. 7 tablespoons)

Cut the chili in two and remove the seeds. 
Put in a saucepan with the water and boil for approx. 5 min or until half of the water has evaporated. 
Sieve and put aside. 
Put the milk in the saucepan, remove the pods from the vanilla and add to the milk along with the vanilla and cinnamon stick and bring to boil. 
Add chocolate and sugar or honey and melt together. 
Take vanilla and cinnamon stick out of the saucepan. 
Add the chili water to the saucepan according to taste, you might not want to use it all. 
Pour into cups and add a dash of whipped cream on top. 
Enjoy:)

A home in Gotland

I´ve been meaning to post these images for a while, you might already have seen them around the blogworld. I love this house, the home of architect and interior designer Johan Israelson and his family, somewhere in the countryside of Gotland in Sweden. This one would definitely go on my inspiration board if I was making plans for a second home in the countryside. Perhaps one day....
