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.
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.
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!
Semla is a Swedish wheatbun filled with a paste of almond or marzipanpaste and whipped cream. Swedish Semla is not like other buns. We only eat them in February. But why do we not eat these buns all year round? And why do we eat Semla at all? The Swedish people eat about six million ”Semlor” during this day Fat Tuesday.
Cookalong on Valentines Day with Frida and Ciana in Frisco, Dallas, Texas USA and me here in Sollentuna Sweden. On Valentines day we made pizza. The crust glutenfree, made with almond flour. Frida and Ciana made their pizza vegetarian with mushrooms and bellpeppers. I made three different toppings. One with white sauce from ricotta cheese and topped with spinnach, onions and brusselsprouts. Another with tomatoesauce, onions and chorizo sausage. The third with tomatoe sauce, ham, shrimps and onions. I mixed mozzarella and parmesan cheese on all three.
This rice is the most beautiful and tasty rice I have ever have eaten. I really discovered a treasure that has been unknown to me until now. Beauty, fragrance and taste! I had decided to try this persian rice at my Cookalong with Frida and Ciana. They in Frisco, Dallas Texas, USA and me here in Sollentuna, Sweden. We made Persian Jeweled Rice with a Vegetable Curry. The rice is flavored with saffron, which gives it its golden color, along with orange zest and carrots glazed in Saffron and topped with berries and nuts. After eating this rice I am totally in love with it. I realize how boring I have eaten rice all my life up to this point!

This Vietnamese cake Bánh Bò Nướng is one iconic cake in Vietnamese cuisine. The name comes from the honeycomb structure which can be seen when you cut a cross section of the cake. Honeycomb cake is traditionally served warm and is perfect on its own or with a nice cup of hot tea. I love this cake and it is great if you are glutenintolerant.
