Fun with boards


About a year ago I came across these amazing Kotona magnetic notice boards for the first time and immediately loved them. The boards are decorative but also very practical and the magnets are so strong that you are able to attach a large bunch of keys or a pair of scissors to them!

The boards are made from left over material from the furniture industry this makes them Eco-friendly too!





































































The Kotona magnetic notice boards are available from our shop

Pølsehorn a wholesome Danish snack

Ok so you won't be able to pronounce the name of this snack but essentially it's
sausages wrapped in dough! I came across this recipe in  boligliv and wanted to share it with you.


(24 pieces.)
25 g butter
5 dl milk
50 g  fresh yeast (get from your local baker's)
3 tsp. sugar
2 tsp. salt
200 g spelt flour
500-600 g regular wheat flour
24 small sausages (could  be vegetarian such as Tival)
A little sesame seeds for sprinkling over the horns befor they go into the oven


Melt the butter in a saucepan  add the milk and get to a warm but not hot temperature

Remove the saucepan from the heat and pour the liquid into a bowl
stir in the yeast,sugar, salt followed by the spelt flour  which should be added a little at the time whilst kneading the dough.
- keep a little of the flour back and continue  kneading until dough is smooth and supple.
Cover the dough and let it rise in a warm place for approx. 1 hour.

Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead it well.


Split the dough into 24 pieces and roll  out in the shape of sausages
Wrap the dough around the sausages and arrange them on two baking trays covered
with baking paper. Let bread raise approx. 30 min.
Turn on the oven to 200 degrees.


Brush horns with water and sprinkle with sesame seeds .

Bake for about 15 min or until  golden.

Velbekomme!!  Enjoy!!
