Egg Salad

Beg-4-more – Egg Salad (almost) from scratch

I’m near sure there are hundreds of countries with thousands of recipes for an egg salad – and most of them are probably really good. However, on a visit back in the home country I was annoyed by the small portion of the store-bought egg salad and quickly whipped up a home-made version, using what […]

Velvet Cupcakes Compared

Experimental Food – My Red Velvet Cake Quest I

Broken Glass Red Velvet (Dexter or Halloween) Cupcakes, what an awesome idea. I saw them, was intrigued and wanted to make them. But not from a cake packet and when I learned how much food colouring went in and about the myths, I started digging a little myself!

Zucchini Patch

Veggie ‘Steak’ – Granddad’s Zucchini Goodness

Happy New Year in the Common Era / BC timescale. We may celebrate another one for other occasions. No reason wasted to celebrate! I’m starting light into the new year. Recipe-wise at least. A ‘recipe’ requiring just three ingredients and a turner and a pan. Easy, fresh and sooo yummy. More of a cooking suggestion, […]

Your Ideas? Pumpkin-Zucchini Did-Not-Turn-Out-Fritters

It’s summer and the first pumpkin in the garden has grown enough to make something out of it. I never grew pumpkins before, generally they are not a main staple for me, but I gave it a go this summer. Also the pumpkin-mix-seed sachet is nowhere to be found, so I wasn’t quite sure which […]

Hazelnut Gelato Ingredients Close Up

Going Nuts One More Time – Hazelnut Gelato – Hand and Homemade

Just because – a little Christmas special! This is amazing. I never knew how easy it is to make homemade gelato (which translates to ice-cream). Having an ice cream maker at hand is not even necessary, even though the results get somewhat better, but not to the point where it becomes a major problem without […]

No-meat all yum Burger Pattie – The Oat burger

Now just before Christmas, I am turning towards other things than this blog. There may not be many posts from now until early in the New Year, but then I shall pick this blog up again. I hope you have enjoyed my recipes and thoughts so far. For now, I thought a recipe well suited […]

Homemade Nutella Ingredients

Going Nuts Again – Homemade Nut-Chocolate Spread “Nutella”-Style

It’s addictive and full of energy, but not necessarily the kind of energy source you need more of. Nutella is full of simple sugars. However, about twice a year I have an episode where I eat a jar. This recipe allows me to get a bit more control over what I spread on my piece […]

Pesto Siciliana Ingredients

Going Nuts with Pesto alla Siciliana – Ricotta e Noci (from scratch)

Italy. It features ancient culture, emotional language, loving and interesting people and last but not least bloody awesome (and healthy) cuisine. I’m happy Italy isn’t everywhere, since there are soooo many uncounted delicous cuisines (and awesome cultures and people), but you can bring a little bit of Italy (alsmost) everywhere.

Iglo Spinach Copycat Version with Potatoes and Egg.

Copycat Iglo Cream Spinach – Iglo Rahmspinat

Ah the glory of your childhood foods. This homemade Iglo Rahmspinat Copycat recipe has stilled my cravings. I hope you like it, too!

Curry Coconut Laksa.

Coconut Laksa – (almost) from scratch

So, my second recipe post and I must admit one of my favourite recipes. I’ve re-created the taste to be similar to a pack of Saucy Spice Co Laksa which I loved (even though a little too spicy for my taste buds). These guys make amazing pre-packed spice packs for home cooking. Admittedly, buying the […]
