'Cause I can I won't and I don't stop

...and if I havent' got you humming Beastie Boys now, I don't know how to get you to do it ;)

Just wanted to make sure I didn't have a no-post month and to let you all know that yes, I am alive and cooking, to boot. The cooking part of me has been in a bit of a stand-still, lately though. But, I just taught myself how to do those long, swirly cucumber thingies (hence the "don't stop" in the title) and I hope I'll have a proper post up soon. Maybe in the next couple of days. Be well so long.

Love the blog - the food and especially the photos are great!

Cathy said...

Neat - I haven't seen that before. Are you going to show us what you did with it?

I hope you're doing well Zarah, I owe you an email... hope to catch up soon!

ZM, you tease! Been waiting in suspense, and now I can see you're in San Francisco! :-P

Julie said...

I'm with Cathy -- tell and show more about the long swirly cucumber thingies -- I'm intrigued! said...

I'm so glad I found your blog - it's interesting and fun! I've got you bookmarked now so I'll be back!

Jessica said...

Glad you are back!

How do you do those cucumber things?

I found your blog while blog-surfing and I'm so glad I did! I have just left DK two months ago and really missed Brunsviger, found yours, made it and loved it! Although my picture didn't turn out as yummy as yours!

Keep cooking! I'm back in CPH this weekend, so real stuffs from bakery for me - any recommendation?

Lynne said...

Hi Zarah, I've got a new food blog, - do you have any photos of healthy homemade lunches you might have, and I will link the post back to your website? Thanks

Zarah Maria said...

Joel - thank you!:)

Cathy - there's not much trick to it, other than patience. You simply find your sharpest, longest, not too broad knife, preferably one that's a little flexible and then peel around your cucumber. The sushi chefs at a place I used to work at could do it to carrots as well, but they were a bit too hard for me to do. Maybe in time?

Jennie - indeed I am a tease! Look how long it's taken me to answer this post!;)

Julie - I'll try and do some more photos next time!:)

Pots & Pins - thank you!

Jessica - a little goes a long way, I hope ;)

Sean - as I said above, patience m'dear, patience. And I'll try to shoot more photos :)

Paddingtonbabe - thanks :) I'm terribly late answering your question, but I hope you found something good while here. La Glace is AWESOME for layer cakes and for more homey cakes, I'd go for Lagkagehuset on Christianshavn. Just in case you should be back ;)

Lynne - I just send you an email - I'll keep you in mind :)
