This Traditional Italian Easter Bread is a soft sweet brioche dough formed into wreaths and topped with coloured eggs & sprinkles. I colored the eggs uncooked. And they cooked as I baked the bread in the oven.
This weekend I treated myself to Afternoon Tea. I had some bakery in my freezer that I could create with. So this became my treat after a while. You do not need fancy ingredients to make a perfect Afternoon Tea. It just needs to look pretty and petite.
Irish Lace Cookies with Chocolate filling is a traditional Irish cookie made with oats, brown sugar, butter and a chocolate filling. They are delicate and more candylike than a cookie.
Last sunday was another great Cookalong with Frida and Ciana. They in Frisco, Dallas Texas, USA and me here in Sollentuna Sweden. This time we made Argentine Vegetarian Empanadas. Empanadas can be found everywhere in Argentina. The most common filling is with beef, but it can really be anything you like and prefer. We made ours vegetarian. Instead of ground beef we used crumbled, marinated and baked Tofu and added that to a filling with onion, garlic, chili pepper, bell pepper, shredded carrots and potatoes. We also added the traditional hard boiled eggs.
Since I started my new website Bj´s Live Kitchen I also started an Instagram account @bjslivekitchen. I enjoy following other instagram foodaccounts. So I love to just watch and get inspired. Last night I baked an Italien Olive Oil Cake from a recipe on the instagramaccount of historicalitalianfood, Karima Moyer-Nocchiof @historicalitalianfood I really love it! I never baked like this with olive oil before. And it was my first time to taste Olive Oil Cake. It was so easy to make and tastes so great! Check out the recipe!
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.
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 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.
I am sharing a food memory tonight to honor my Aunt Martha who passed away. Today was her funeral. I could not be there since the funeral was in Norway and due to Covid-19 it is not possible for me to partake. So to honor my aunts memory and life I have baked and eaten this Anise Pretzel that she used to bake. Any time I want I can in my mind smell it and remember the taste of her “Aniskringle.” I loved it and it was only when visiting her as a child I got this particular pretzel. My aunt had just turned 90 years old before Christmas. Peace and love to her memory.
