There is one slight disadvantage being the photographer of the family: No-one ever takes “spontaneous” pictures of me. The only pictures I have of myself are those where I am standing with a ridiculously fake smile in front of some monument, and let’s be real… The best pictures of people are those you don’t know are being taken. So it was quite a treat for me to suddenly have another photo freak in the house last autumn. As I’ve talked about before we had an American college student living with us last semester, and it was such a wonderful experience. Her name is Lily and I could never have dreamed of a better exchange sister. Just to mention a few of the countless wonderful things about her: She is very interested in food and takes a lot of photos. For instance these photos of me cooking and shooting, for which I am very grateful. Lily is incredibly talented! I usually hate pictures of myself.

Der er en enkelt lille ulempe ved at være den eneste ”fotograf” i familien: Der er aldrig nogen, der tager billeder af mig, når jeg ikke kigger. Derfor er de eneste billeder, jeg har af mig selv dem, hvor jeg står med et stor falsk smil foran en eller anden seværdighed. Og let’s face it – de bedste billeder er nu en gang dem, man ikke ved bliver taget af en. Det var derfor virkelig skønt, da vi pludselig havde endnu en foto-tosse i huset i efteråret. Som jeg før har snakket om, har vi haft en super sød amerikansk college studerende til at bo hos os sidste semester. Hendes navn er Lily, og jeg kunne ikke have drømt om en bedre udvekslingsstuderende. Bare for at nævne nogle få af de skønne ting omkring hende: Hun er ligesom mig meget interesseret i mad og kan godt lide at tage billeder. Hun har fx taget de her  billeder af mig, der laver mad og fotograferer, som jeg er utroligt glad for.

Despite the relatively short time Lily stayed with us, we did a lot of great things together. For instance going to Berlin for a weekend. I’ve already told about the trip, but I have to repeat the fact that Berlin has so much nice food to offer. At a flea market (Flohmarkt am Mauerpark) Lily and I had some insanely delicious gluten free buckwheat crepes. I added banana, almonds and cinnamon to mine and it was the best crepe I’ve had in my entire life. I had to make it again.

So here it is: The long awaited recipe on buckwheat crepes (:

——————————————————————————————————————

På trods af den relativt korte tid, hun boede hos os nåede vi at lave en masse sjove ting. For eksempel tog vi på en weekendtur til Berlin. Jeg har allerede fortalt om turen, men jeg må lige endnu en gang fortælle, hvor fantastisk meget lækker mad, Berlin har at byde på. På loppemarkedet Flohmarkt am Mauerpark fik Lily og jeg de lækreste glutenfrie boghvedepandekager. Jeg puttede banan, mandler og kanel på min, og det var den bedste pandekage, jeg nogensinde har fået. Jeg måtte lave den igen.

Så her er den: Den længe ventede opskrift på boghvedepandekager (:

These pancakes aren’t sweetened, because I like to add my sweetener myself. Furthermore the crepes can be used as gluten free burritos, when there isn’t any sweetener in them. But feel free to add some maple syrup to the batter.

Pandekagerne er ikke sødede, da jeg bedst kan lide selv at søde dem efterfølgende efter behov. Ved at lave dem uden sukker kan de endvidere bruges som glutenfrie madpandekager. Men tilføj hellere end gerne lidt ahorn sirup til dejen.

    Hvor ser de skønne ud. Og sjovt at se ‘bagom’ kameraet. Jeg tager altid håndholdte billeder, men måske jeg skal overveje stativ :-)

  2. I wasn’t lucky enough being the only photographer in the family, my dad is a photographer, so he took a looooots of pictures, everytime, every situation, so probably that’s the reason I also hate pics of myself :D
    But yours are very pretty, I like that you stand in front of the door as ballet dancer!
    And these crepes sound simple but very tasty, I’ll try them out, thanks :)

    • Haha, I see what you mean. I just hate pics of my self because I always look so fake
      Aw, thank you. The thing avout the ballet dancer really means a lot. I’ve danced ballet for almost 14 years, but had to stop for various reasons – so I am happy you can still see it a litte bit :)

  3. That’s so cool you can just go to Berlin for the weekend! I wish I lived in Europe! That sounds lovely though and these pancakes look so delicious :)

    Love the recipe, the photos and especially you on the photos! So nice to see you doing your thing(: And I’ve got exactly the same, it’s always me who has the photo camera… Oh well..
    It sounds awesome to have an exchange student at your place, too bad that it’s only for a short time though indeed.. But it sounds like you’ve had lots of fun. Berlin is great!

  5. How fun to have an exchange sister! I stayed with a family in Peru for a few weeks and it was really a great experience. And nice that she took photos with you :) I actually just tried buckwheat crepes in Paris a few weeks ago and they were delicious! I’d love to try to make them myself and now I have the recipe :)

  6. I want to host an exchange student so bad, but Mom keeps saying no :( haha! These look WONDERFUL! I’ve only made crepes once but it was a good experience. I don’t know why I haven’t tried them again! Also, I’m in love with that picture in front of the door! You should do a house tour sometime. It seems beautiful :)

    • Aw you have to convince her then! It is such a great experience.
      It’s pretty funny actually… The things which are most common in Denmark are crepes, not pancakes. So I can’t believe you’ve only had them once.
      Haha what a wonderful idea with the house tour. It would be a lot of fun to see how bloggers live :)
