I ordered food box to us to this day (25.4.) from Tokmanni (store). It is a box that contains 7 different meals. There are 2×600g packages for all meals and four different food box sets to choose from. For two people, the set has enough food for almost two weeks. That’s a lot of food for 50 euros.

We once ordered this same set with my spouse, and the price-quality ratio was so good that now I decided to re-order (the same) set with different meat and fish dishes (like casseroles and soups).

Last night I received a message announcing that my food box will arrive the next day at around 6-7pm. I waited all evening for food to arrive, but they never arrived. At first I thought the food was late, but 10.30. pm I stopped waiting. So we were left without food and the order has already been paid for online.

Luckily there were still meatballs at home that I ate late in the evening when I gave up waiting for my order to arrive. Hopefully the food will be delivered tomorrow (or more precisely today). If food does not arrive before evening tomorrow, I’m going to call and make a complaint about this.

Normally, they always deliver these food box orders on Mondays, so the order may be postponed until next week. We have the money calculated exactly, and there is no extra. This is tying up the money now, and yet we should buy something from the store if we don’t get our food order this week. This is so wrong when nothing is even reported. In general, all orders play pretty well in Finland. Even though they sometimes come late, they always come. This kind of activity makes you angry!

Anyway, I’m really tired and I have to go to sleep so good night, (good morning, or nice evening, whatever time of day there is)!

Cream cheese Brownies

Hello again!

Here’s another Easter post to you. If you don’t have a miraculous thing to do at the end of Easter, try this recipe! I made my own version of this delicious dessert yesterday which can be found on ”Kakkumonster’s” You tube channel. I really recommend you to try this!

Here’s the recipe:

20×30cm casserole (or oven tray)

12 pieces


200g dark chocolate

175g butter

3,5dl/2 cup sugar

2dl/0,9 cups flour

0,5 teaspoon vanilla powder or 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar

a pinch of salt

3 eggs

cream cheese layer:

1 egg

200g unflavoured cream cheese

0,5 teaspoon vanilla powder or 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar

0,5dl sugar

(Tupla Double Layer White Nougat Suklaapatukka 48G)

I also put ”Tupla” chocolate (Finnish traditional chocolate) on that surface, but you can use what ever chocolate you like. However I have to say, this was good match. At first I did think this is not good fit but when I tasted it later again after refrigerated, it tasted very delicious!! ”Kakkumonsteri” put Kinder chocolate bars in the dough. I traded them for that ”Tupla” chocolate (on the surface). Below is a link to her recipe.


Melt chocolate and butter in a water bath (or mikrowave should also make up). Let it cool.

Prepare the cream cheese filling (mix all the ingredients together).

Add sugar in chocolate butter mix.

Mix the other dry ingredients together and add to the mixture. Stir. Add eggs and stir.

Pour the dough on to oven casserolle or tray lined with baking paper (as I did).

Spoon the cream cheese over the dough. Shape the surface with a spoon into marble.

Bake in oven 170 degrees 30-35min. If you use oven tray, the cooking time will be slightly shorter.

(Sprinkle pieces of chocolate on the surface if desired.)

Serving suggestion: Serve with (nougat) ice cream. (This was a great addition, although of course this goes without ice cream also). You can also choose the taste of the ice cream according to your own taste, for example chocolate and vanilla are surely also good, but in my opinion this nougat ice cream was really delicious. It had such good crunchy balls as well inside it.




It’s easter time again. In honor of that, I’ll share a few videos suitable for Easter for you from the YouTube channel Jesse eats. If you don’t know who Jesse is, I recommend checking out his videos.

In short Jesse is the best racing eater in Finland who sometimes also competes internationally (and power athlete from which he has his own channel. He has won World Championships in powerlifting in 2017, 2019 and 2021.)

Without further ado… Let’s jump to the videos.

In this video, Jesse makes a world record for eating a Kinder chocolate egg, by eating 96 Kinder eggs. (Popular chocolate egg in Finland).

(Sorry, there is no subtitles for this video.)

I also recommend this video to you. Here Jesse eats half of every different Fazer chocolate bar (there are really a lot of them). (English subtitles available.)

In this video, Jesse eats five pounds of mämmi. If you don’t know what mämmi is, look at this and you will find out! (English subtitles available.)

So here’s a little Easter pastime for you…


Ps. What is your favorite Easter delicacy? My favorite is definitely chocolate eggs. I also eat mämmi and pasha but for me chocolate eggs are the most traditional and best Easter delicacies.


Hi again for a long time!

Here’s a link to a post from my favorite blogger: a Christian woman who always has great subjects and an immersive writing style.

The topic of this post will surely touch us all in one way or another. I was particularly touched by this writing at the moment because of my recent loss(es).

Losses are something you will never learn to understand or fully accept. There is empty space in my heart for everyone who left, especially my family members.

We can do nothing for these, and with losses we are forced to learn to live because they are part of life.

That is why life should be appreciated and enjoyed, for you never know when the last day is.

Even if the last few years have been difficult, I believe better times are waiting for me too.

More thoughts on this topic in this link:

Here are two songs that both fit into the moment of loss, although the first of these is probably intended to be more like break up song. This song was my favorite about twenty years ago and yesterday it suddenly popped into my head. In this situation, it reminded me of my brother, and how I would never see him again.

The second song is my enduring favorite from a great Finnish singer who has had a long career.

Scandinavian Music Group: ”Ei mun oo hyvä olla yksin” (It’s not good to be alone)

English lyrics:

When it gets dark outside, I’m waiting for you

I sit by the kitchen window, there is no tobacco

There are boys standing on the street, I’m looking for you


There’s nothing here without you. There is nothing without you. It’s not good for me to be alone.

There’s nothing here without you and nothing will come of this without you. It’s not good for me to be alone.

The traffic has stopped, I listen to the echo

I look forward to the quiet corridor

I’ve been sitting here for many hours, my legs goes dead (legs goes dead) I’ve been sitting here for many hours, my legs goes dead (legs goes dead)


Kaija Koo: ”Kylmä ilman sua” (Cold without you)
