Glogg.  I tried this for the first time today at a Christmas party.  It tastes just like the holiday season.  Very sweet and spicy, in the same way as hot apple cider.  I haven’t tried making it for myself yet, but I found this recipe online that look good.  From what my host family has said about making the drink, this one is the most authentic I’ve found.  They also say sometimes to make the drink people soak the fruit and nuts in schnapps overnight and then add them to the bottom of the glass, rather than soaking them with the spices overnight.  Anyway, just something small to share today.  Enjoy =]

Oh my gosh!  I am so cold!  I just got home from spending the morning downtown (it’s noon here in Denmark now) switching the days of my language class and picking up some school supplies.  I can’t believe I forgot my new gloves at home!  So what I’m making now is a cinnamon steamer to warm me up.  I used to make these at a coffeehouse I worked at and the fact that I don’t have an espresso machine at my disposal is a non-issue.  Here’s what I do:

Cinnamon Steamers


(Scaled for one person.  Takes about 5 minutes to make.)

  • Milk (a mug-full and a half of cows milk or one mug-full of soy milk)
  • Sugar (a teaspoon or two, or to taste)
  • Cinnamon (a teaspoon or two, or to taste.  A cinnamon stick works too.  Or, sub for a handful of your favorite non-citric fruit!)


  1. Pour milk into a saucepan with sugar and cinnamon.  Stir together.
  2. Bring milk to a boil.
  3. Cows milk:  Take off heat after it has had more or less tripled in size.  It will deflate once taken off heat.  Stir again, then serve!
  4. Soy milk: Take off heat when hot enough.  Stir and serve!
