It is quick and easy to make this luxurious sandwich yourself at home. Last week I suddenly felt like eating sandwiches. I started out with Norwegian Sandwiches and than continued to Club Sandwich. I had sliced meat in the freezer from my Christmas ham and even the other ingredients I needed at home. So I was exited to both make and eat my creation.
The other day I made my favorite food on an ordinary saturday, Kokt Kveite, Boiled Halibut, Hälleflundra. I feel almost guilty. This time I made it with Pommes Duchess.
Norwegian Vannbakkels (Petit Choux) with Savory filling made from shrimps, red onion, caviar, Youghurt, mayonnaise , Mustard, salt and pepper.
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.
This is a great way to use leftover mash. I had some left over rutabaga mash from dinner the other night and wondered how can I use this. I decided to experiment with my airfryer and make dippers. They turned out really great. They are good to eat alone but also as a sidedish to a meal.
For New Year I always want to make Salmon. This New Years Eve I had a Cookalong with Frida and Ciana in Frisco, Dallas Texas, USA and me here in Sollentuna Sweden making lunch for them and dinner for me. We made Swedish Toast Skagen, fried Salmon, Roasted Vegetables and Pommes Duchesse. A lovely end to a year of cookalong. Looking forward to New Cooking adventures in 2021!
Charlotte Russe is both a cake and dessert. I remember my mom made this when I was growing up in Norway. I decided to make it the other night. It is made with Raspberry Roll Cake and Lime Mousse. It is really fresh tasting.
A dessert loved in Norway is Riskrem. I loved it and my mom used to make it from left over Riceporridge. In Sweden I learnt to know it as ”Ris A La Malta.” Try this simple but lovely dessert!
My mom had a special recipe for Gingerbread that we called Kakemann in Norwegian. We always made these instead of the white one’s or the thinner brown one’s. I made them last weekend thinking about all the baking we used to do for Christmas. These were the favorite for us kids of all the cookies we made. And even as grown up they remained a favorite.
The 11th December was mom’s birthday. So I wanted to make a cake she used to make. I had not made this one in such a long time. I was looking through her recipes and remembered I loved this cake. It is a Chockolate cake with hazelnut caramel topping and vanilla cream filling. The cake is baked up-side-down. The bottom filling made with hazelnuts, butter and sugar becomes the top.
