Hi there!

I’m Jenny, a Swede living in Scotland with my lovely husband and two young children.

Fika is a Swedish word roughly meaning “to drink coffee,” usually accompanied by something sweet, such as cakes, cookies, buns (preferably all of them) but can also be ย something savoury such as sandwiches.

It’s more than just a coffee break though, but rather a social gathering – something to enjoy with friends and family, at least once a day!

I love to bake and will capture some of my adventures into the world of baking here, as well as other things that makes life worth living ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Fika! I googled it – what a cool word! I am so passionate about ‘coffee break’ or morning tea as we call it in New Zealand (and Europe I imagine..) which always involves a drink and something sweet around 10.30am. It’s quite a foreign concept here in Canada but I am keen to make it more of an event!

    • Thanks! Yes, it’s pretty big in Sweden too, although here in the UK it’s usually just a tea or coffee break without any accompaniment. During weekends fika tend to take place more in the afternoon, at least in my family. Either way, it’s a great way of getting together, catching up and having something nice to nibble on ๐Ÿ™‚ Good luck with your mission of making it more popular in Canada!
