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, […]

Autumn Maple Pecan Kiss

Autumn Maple Pecan Kiss Gelato – Vermonster – Hand and Homemade

So busy I was, I couldn’t post, part of it because we had a pest infestation, which took weeks to clear. Not pleasant, but I will dwell on this later – it’s solved now for good it seems. However, I also loaned my ‘Monster‘ to a friend who was instantly convinced she needed ‘something’ like […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]
