#KidsKitchen: How to make stained glass cookies

staying at home in the evening (with a glass of wine) is the new fashion – Italian Cuisine


Do not you want to go out? Nothing strange! For the Finns, relaxing in the home is the top. And the trend now also depopulated by us

Heavy socks, blanket, fireplace or lit candle, music in the background or a program on TV, a glass of wine to drink on the sofa: if in winter the evenings you like more and more spend them so, in the comfort of home instead of restaurant, at the cinema, out for a drink with friends, know that you are not alone.

The new trend from Finland

It's called Kalsarikännit, comes from Finland and is a new trend, or the art of dedicating themselves to relaxing in the home, after an intense and stressful day, wearing comfortable clothes (pajamas or just underwear), doing what we like best , sipping some wine or a drink (do not exaggerate!) and with no intention of going out. Better yet, then, if you are alone.

An official thing

This mood is also told by the official website of the promotion of Finland, produced by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Department of Communications, and illustrated with some nice emoji. There is also a book that explains it, released last June: Päntsdrunk: Kalsarikänni, The Finnish Path to Relaxation of Miska Rantanen.

Pumpkin White Russian

Pumpkin White Russian

by Pam on November 4, 2013

My sister introduced me to a delicious new drink while she was visiting. It was a pumpkin flavored White Russian and it was delightful. It was quite simple to make and tasted heavenly. My sister has a sweeter tooth than I do so she used one shot of the pumpkin pie cream liqueur while I only used half a shot. I am looking forward to making these again and again – especially on Thanksgiving. Thanks for the tasty drinks Dana! Also, a HUGE thank you to my husband for taking these pictures while I made dinner. Thank you Chad!!

Fill a tall glass with ice cubes. Add 1 shot of  Whipped Cream Vodka, 1 (or 1/2) a shot of Pumpkin Pie Cream Liqueur, and fill with milk, to taste. Stir well and serve. Enjoy.

Side Note: The pumpkin pie liqueur is great by itself over ice or added to coffee.
