I just ate another bowl of this delicious spicy noodle soup. Is there anything better with this kind of crispy winter weather? And I can't eat this heavenly veggie and dumpling soup every day, or can I? So when I craved something spicy, I decided to make this wonderful dish. This soup is known as thukpa in Nepal. Since I'm going there in March, I started researching Nepalese food and thukpa was one of the main things.

Warm greetings from icy Estonia! It's -20 C (that's -4 F) in here. But it's been so good to curl myself onto our warm rocket stove and read The Egyptian. It's also been great to lay on our big log bed in the night and stare the bright stars through the roof window. Scandinavian magic indeed! Since it's freezing outside, I've been craving a lot of potatoes. One day I made boiled potatoes, simple white sauce and chickpea omelette. Yesterday I made baked potato wedges with salted mushroom salad (a classic in Estonia, made with salted mushrooms, onions and sour cream) and härkis. The last one is basically vegan mince meat made of broad beans. My father-in-law kindly brought it to us from Finland, while having a vacation there. I just pan-fried the härkis along with onions, garlic and tomato sauce. It went so well with baked potatoes!

This gingerbread cake is BEYOND delicious and ridiculously easy. I'm a bit afraid to make it again, because I couldn't stop eating it. I have a huge love for soft gingerbreads. I used to buy these heart-shaped soft gingerbread cookies glazed with chocolate. The softness and the sweet spices together is just addictive. A few days ago I started thinking about Christmas desserts. I was wondering about making a regular cookie cake but with gingerbread cookies. Verdict - delicious!

I have the best Christmas dessert recipe (seriously, the best!) coming to you on Saturday, but first let's eat some salad! To be honest, I have a little vegan beef with the word "rutabaga". "Turnip" sounds much cuter, but it's not the vegetable I used in this salad. They are both similar yet different. So rutabaga salad it is.
