Welcome to Bj’s Live Kitchen

Here you can find my recipes and instructions to make tasty and special dishes from countries all over the world.


Churros

Churros are widely known as a Mexican or Spanish snack. However Churros are made in different ways around the world. It can be made as a dessert or snack and is very common to be bought as streetfood with chocolate sauce on top or to dip in. I have two recipes for Churros here. One with egg and butter and one without eggs and with oil. The dipping sauce is most often a chocolate sauce but could be something else as well. The easy way is to use Nutella. However I have the recipe of three different sauces here as well. It is just to go by your own preference really.

Swedish Baked Potatoes with Vegetarian Filling

Cookalong with Frida and Ciana last night. They in Frisco, Dallas Texas, USA and me here in Sollentuna Sweden. We made Baked Potatoes Swedish Style, However with vegetarian filling. Baked potatoes are really popular in Sweden. It is also a popular streetfood. The fillings can be many. Most traditionally it is made with creme fraiche or yoghurt a little mayonnaise, shrimps, onions or with ham instead of shrimps. However it could be with any ingredients you prefer. We made it with onions, mushrooms and bellpeppers this time. This dish is so tasty and comforting and really easy to make.

Salted Cod with Beetroot Risotto and Dill Sauce

The other night I made Cod in my airfryer and it became perfectly flaky. I had fresh Norwegian cod which I have bought from a Fish Van that actually goes to northern Norway and buys it from the boats and brings it fresh. It is so wonderful compared to what can be bought in the stores. It is now season for cod in the Norwegian Sea. To go with it I made Beetroot Risotto and a Yoghurt Sauce with dill and lemon zest.

I loved the taste and also the look of this dish, the beautiful white fish against the red just made me happy!

“To make food has always been more than just making food to me. I have seen it as a work of love and care. And this is like ingrained in my cells. I believe it is because of what I learned from home.“
