Cream Herring Dish

German Traditional and Vegan Herring – Fantastic Fake Fish

There is this traditional (northern) German dish. It’s a dish with steaming hot salt potatoes (peeled or not) served with a cold ‘herring salad’ or ‘cream herring’. It used to be a ‘poor people’s’ dish, but those times are long since gone and all sorts of poor people’s food has become quite popular, also because […]

Kasseler Bread

Kasseler ‘Grey Bread’ – One of Fifty shades of German bread

Very delicious this one. And the first yeast-bread I somewhat mastered! It is soooooooo good!!! I started making this without a mixer, so it is possible, the ‘Krume’ as it is called in German – the stuff inside the crust, will not turn out as flexible and homogenous if you make it by hand, but […]

Knäckebröd - 3rd trial

Swedish Crispbread with ‘Snow’ II – 3rd Re-creation atempt of “þe awld brēad”?

A third attempt, this time with longer baking and some more learned details. Just a reminder –  I read on the English Wikipedia that the old way of making Knäckebröd – Knäckebrot in German and Swedish Crisp Bread in English was with crushed ice or snow. All modern versions I found would be with yeast. […]

Swedish Crispbread with Snow – Re-creation atempt of “þe awld brēad”?

Yes, I looked that up, but I’m not sure if ‘the old bread’ (þe awld brēad) is actually old English, but it was certainly closer than ‘ye olde bread’. Either way – it’s a Swedish dish anyway and I had fun looking that up 😉 Also, I’m really busy at the moment with some things, […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

Pancakes or Pikelets – wheat, dairy, baking powder free

This is my first post, so I just go with what I whipped up today. Balance and diversity is healthy and some of my friends reduce wheat/gluten/dairy in their diet for various reasons, so I was curious if I could come up with a recipe of pancakes that’s edible and has a good texture as […]
