stockholm spring // the muffin mythThe light is coming back in leaps and bounds. This is one of our favourite spots in the city with such spectacular views. Now that things are warming up we’ll be heading there more and more. Horray for spring!

I didn’t manage to get a recipe posted this week, unfortunately. I’ve got a half written post in my draft folder, and a way less than half written thesis. I’ll be back with a recipe very soon, but in the mean time there are some really good links in this week’s roundup. Enjoy!

What’s good around the web is a weekly series where I share some of what I’ve been reading around the web. Each week I post links to five nutrition related articles, good recipes, and just general good reads. I hope you enjoy it! If you’ve got at article or recipe you’d like to see featured, please email me.
