My dear friend made these for me not too long ago and I’ve been dying to have them again. This morning I finally had the time to do it and they were every bit as good as I remembered. The recipe yields quite a lot though, so we’re having left-over pancakes tomorrow too!
(Serves 6 […]
It is late August and hence time to harvest some of all those zucchini and tomatoes (that you can buy at the supermarket!).
1 large zucchine or 2 small ones or a million tiny ones As many zucchini flowers as you have the nerve to pick 4 large tomatoes 1 red bell pepper […]
I just ate this for dinner and it was delicious!
I thought I’d share:
Olive oil Half a head of pointy cabbage 1 zucchini and as many zucchini flowers as you can get your greedy little hands on 1/2 cup cashew nuts 2 cloves garlic Oyster sauce, […]
We were met with cheese and crackers and homegrown veggies and dip. Hummus and fruit and wine. Trying to overcome the jetlag, we went to bed at a reasonable hour.
For breakfast we had oat-pancakes made with butter-roasted almond splits and blueberries. Served with sliced bananas, chunky peanut butter and maple […]
If you are like most people, you need three things in December: vitamins, color and delicious food. (Actually, if you were like most people, you wouldn’t be reading this. Sigh!)
Setting off a regular firework of orange, purple and green, this salad is is an orgy of vitamins and flavour. It takes some chopping – […]

Here is a real food salad with boiled spelt. ( From Wikipedia: “Spelt is a hexaploid species of wheat. Spelt was an important staple in parts of Europe from the Bronze Age to medieval times; it now survives as a relict crop in Central Europe and northern Spain and has found a new market as […]
Feeling fragile? Here is the recipe for my very favorite cake in the world. Now, usually, I’m a “screw-fruit-and-bring-out-the-chocolate” kind of person but this cake just has it all: Dead-easy to make, looks like a million dollars, tastes heavenly and can be made well in advance for a lot of people.
(Serves ca. […]
Having company over? Need to whip up something that takes 5 minutes to make and will be ready to serve in, say 20 minutes?
Try these coconut macaroons. They’re delicious! These were made with the help of my 6-year old. Eggshells and all! That’s how easy it is!
50 g/1,8 Oz of butter […]
If you follow my blog regularly, you’ll know that I adore edible flowers. More than any other flower, I adore the violet. It comes out in March as if to tell the world that Spring is coming, it is petite and feminin and it has a wonderful aroma not to be found […]
If you are only going to use one brownie recipe in your entire life – let this be it. (Thank you, Morten Heiberg!!)
It will give you the most moist, sticky, chocolaty, gewy, rich, wonderful and – well, fattening cake you have ever tasted.
A little of this goes a long way! (Like the Sailor […]
Another quick and easy little thing to serve with a chilled glas of Cava is Lox on baguette.
Baguette or what other (white) bread you have – sliced and toasted
Arugula lettuce or other green (baby spinach is great too)
Smoked salmon finely sliced
Salmon roe – or trout roe – […]
Having been married since last century, it has been forever since I went on a really hot date. Luckily, us chubby housewives have ways of compensating… So here’s a hot date!
Well, here’s a very easy, quick and delicious entree, tapas or hors d’oeuvre.
Dates – alternatively, you can […]
When, in our house, the wonderful fragrance of cinnamon spreads, you know we’re almost there. Christmas.
Here is the recipe for my World Famous Cinnamon-Vulcanized Almonds.
1 cup almonds
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1 table spoon ground cinnamon
Here is a nice little lunch or entree – it will also work as a side dish or in a tapas-setting.
1 aubergine (eggplant), rinsed, ends cut off
A bit of oil, preferable in a spray – or just brush it on with a food-brush (or even dab it […]
Thai Week, Part Two!
We can’t have Thai week with out some coconut-milk-dish!
2 cans of coconut milk
600 grams of turkey breast or chicken
1000 grams of mixed veggies (I’ve used squash (zucchini) and bell peppers (NEVER the green ones, they should be banned.) You could also use broccoli, string beans […]
This week has been Thai food week at our house.
Seems like when you take the trouble of stocking up on fresh chilies, coriander, ginger, lemon grass and lime, you might as well make Thai food a couple of nights since these ingredients are used in a lot of different Thai dishes.
Here is another nice winter salad to compliment the Waldorf Salad.
1 head of red cabbage
3-4 table spoons of apple-cider vinegar
3-5 bay leaves
2 big peeled, sliced apples
3 heaped table spoons of currant gel
2 tea spoons duck broth concentrate (or you can just use salt – it is […]
Fall is here.
The leaves are turning yellow, red, purple and brown.
The grass is sparklingly covered with an icy layer of frost in the mornings. It is time for some comforting food. It is time to light candles and put on some Ella Fitzgerald, pour yourself a glas of good wine and have a house smelling like […]
It is Monday morning and the house is quiet. Hubby left for work and the wee ones are in school and kindergarden, respectively. We are now in the middle of October and the cold is setting in. I still haven’t been struck by a thunderbolt of enlightenment to tell me how I should proceed with […]
