Cranberry Roasted Chicken with Oranges

Quick enough for a weeknight WFH dinner but pretty enough for a celebration, Cranberry Roasted Chicken with Oranges surprises. Tart and bright, but balanced, this goes great with mashed potatoes. I first made this for my solo Thanksgiving last year. This post may contain affiliate links, meaning that I get a commission if you take advantage of the offer (thank you!).

Vappu in Helsinki: Finland Comes Out to Party

Vappu, or the First of May celebration in Finland, is something to experience. Vappu in Helsinki kicks off on April 30 (also known as Vappuaatto, or Vappu Eve) with a raucous donning of a graduation cap on a statue that I think the entire country comes out to watch. The celebration continues the next day with a giant picnic in Kaivopuisto, a lovely park near where I stayed. Vappu remains one of my top travel memories. Now updated with tips for planning your trip! Important updates for 2024.
