The Scandinavian country is consistently ranked one of the best places to be a mom and praised for its low infant and mother mortality rates, paid maternity leave and healthcare and daycare systems. Finland's healthcare system has helped give it the lowest maternal death rate in the world -- and it's available to everyone for next to nothing. Dr. Aydin Tekay is the chief physician at a labor ward in Finland where every mother there gets a private room and even the option of a water birth. The cost?

Of blogging, it's unbelievable that I haven't posted a single pulla recipe yet. This is the most basic pulla recipe but there are endless variations to discover – cinnamon rolls, braided loaves, "Boston cake" (which has, at least to my knowledge, nothing to do with Boston itself)...

A few notes: For the best result, make sure that all your ingredients are at room temperature. For the egg wash:1 egg1 tbsp water pearl sugar, to sprinkle To make the doughIn a large mixing bowl (you can make the dough by hand, like me, or in a stand mixer), combine the lukewarm milk and crumbled yeast. Don't overwork the dough or you'll end up with hard buns, not soft as we want them to be.
