Almond Pizza Crust for Valentines Day

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.

Persian Jeweled Rice

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!

Bacalao

Cookalong with Frida and Ciana last night. They in Frisco, Dallas Texas, USA and me here in Sollentuna, Sweden. We made Bacalao. It is a dish with a long history and found in so many countries. It came to Norway and Möre and Romsdal where I come from hundreds of years ago from Portugal. We made it the Norwegian way today. We had to use fresh Fish since we didn’t have the dried salted cod made in Norway since the Viking times and now exported all over the world to Bacalao lovers.

Swedish Skagenröra

Skagenröra is a speciality of Sweden that is used in many varied ways. It can be made to use as an apetizer on toast like in this recipe that I did for New Year. It can also be used as a topping in baked potatoes or as a topping on hotdogs or in wraps you can buy as streetfood. I love the baguettes with Skagenröra which will be a whole lunch. It is also one of the traditional fillings in Smörgåstårta!

Swedish Meatballs and Grilled Christmas Ham

Cookalong last night with Frida and Ciana. They in Frisco, Dallas Texas, USA and me here in Sollentuna Sweden. Last night we made Swedish Meatballs for Christmas and prepped Christmas Ham the Swedish way. At a Buffé or Smörgåsbord the ham is served cold cut in thin slices plated with the whole ham making it a showpiece. Swedish Meatballs are always part of a Swedish Smörgåsbord during the year whether it is for Midsummer, Easter or Christmas or any other great celebration.
