Visit Website This summer went by so fast, and today the rain came. But listen to me, talking about the weather like a real Swede. Living in Greece, I am not allowed to complain about the weather. Today it’s raining. Tomorrow I’ll be at the beach. So instead of looking out the window with disappointment, I will take it as a hint that it’s time to fish the stew pot out of the cupboard and make some hearty comfort food.

This chickpea stew is one of my favorites.
