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.

Sawory Waffles

Waffles have been eaten since medieval times and in so many ways. There are sweet and sawory, hard and soft and crisp. This week I got inspired by a cooking show to make these Sawory Waffles. I had some filling left from my Vietnamese salad and springrolls and wanted to use it in a different way. So I was wondering what to make. And I decided to make Savory Waffles.

Luxurious Club Sandwich

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.

High Protein Lasagne

Cookalong with Frida and Ciana in Frisco, Dallas Texas, USA and me here in Sollentuna Sweden. We made high protein Lasagne. I even made my own Lasagne noodles from scratch. In this Lasagne we made the meatsauce with ground Turkey meat, shredded carrots, chopped unions and garlic and tomatosauce with herbes. I used my own homemade tomatoe and vegetable sauce. Instead of bechamelsauce we made a filling with cottage cheese, lowfat Youghurt, eggs and herbes. Frida and Ciana had a layer with Zuccini and I had a layer with Spinnach. It turned out so great!

Mashed Rutabaga Dippers

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.

American Christmas Cookies

Last Friday night I was exhausted from work and needed to clear my head with something creative. So what is better than making Sugarcookies, American Christmas Cookies with decoration. I both made the dough, baked and decorated before sleeping. So honestly it was getting towards morning hours when I went to bed. I made them with a twist. Tried out my rolling pin with reindeers and Christmas trees and even coloring the dough in different colors, not only the frosting. American Christmas Cookies are so fun and festive to decorate. You can just let your creativity go wild.

Thanksgiving Turkey

Coming from Norway, having lived in the USA and living in Sweden, my traditions have become a mix of many cultures. And as I keep my Norwegian and even Swedish one´s I also like to mix it with a little American. And next weekend is Thanksgiving in the USA. Thursday is actually Thanksgiving and the day for the Turkey.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Pumpkin can be used in all kinds of foods and here are some lovely Pumpkin Pancakes!

American Pumpkin Pie

I have made pumpkin pie many times but never been as satisfied with it as this one. The taste is incredible. And I believe it is because I bake the pumpkin to prepare the pumpkin puré instead of boiling it. Try this receipt!

Specialities of Buffalo

Specialities of Buffalo served together, Beef on Weck and Buffalo Chicken Wings. It is a meal to die for. And it is amazing to be able to make it restaurant style at home!

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Crispy Buffalo Chicken Wings – This extremely popular creation came out of a New York restaurant in the 60’s. They covered them in a special sauce and served them with a side of celery and blue cheese. Since then, Buffalo wings have become game day food in the United States served at bars, restaurants or ordered as take out. It is popular around the world. Now I have made them at home and found the secret of the sauce. You can make them too!

Beef on Weck

Beef on weck is a classic Buffalo sandwich. It’s thinly sliced roast beef served on a caraway and coarse salt coated roll. It’s salty, meaty, and very satisfying. The “on weck” part comes from the name of the roll, Kummelweck. These rolls can be hard to find outside of the Buffalo region, but you can easily make them at home. They are served with horseradish sauce and a side of warm beef jus for the most authentic experience.

Pumpkin Spice Latte

Make a homemade Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte so you can enjoy the warm flavors of the fall at home!

Three way Mexican Casserole

This casserole is healthy with lots of vegetables, lentils and beans and Mexican spicing that will suit every Taco and Chili Lover. I used ground beef and chorizo sausage in mine. It could be made totally vegetarian and taste great. The great thing with casserole is you decide what you put in.

Vegan Sloppy Joe

Sloppy Joe is an American, simple sandwich originally consisting of ground beef, onions, seasonings, and tomato sauce or ketchup on a hamburger bun. The sandwich probably started as a variation of the “loose meat” sandwiches that didn’t contain tomato sauce. In this recipe I make it vegan, without the beef but just as tasteful.

Learn to Pickle

You don’t need a vegetable garden or a fancy party as an exuse to make your own pickles. Neither do you have to preseve food for the whole winter. I use to make pickles often to not waste small vegetables I have in the refrigerator. It could be a cucumber I worry I will not use before it will go soft, a carrot or two, a small piece of cabbage, some apple or pear, anything really. It is fast and easy!

Homemade Apple Sauce

Today I have made Applesauce from fallen apples. Last night there was a heavy thunderstorm and heavy rains. In the common yard outside my apartmentcomplex there are these big appletrees. Anyone can pick the apples but I never see anyone but me do it. However most are so high up I cannot reach them. But due to the weather apples fell to the ground last night. This morning I went out and picked them. I have now cooked all and I got 2 kg of free Apple Sauce! I will freeze the jars and it will last me a year.

Homemade Cream Cheese

I saw that I had some milk and cream that would be outdated so I decided to treat myself and make my own Creamcheese. I never want to waste anything when cooking. I even had some fresh herbes and special salts and honey. From these ingredients I made six different cream cheese flavours. I tend to save small jars and today they came to perfect use. #zerowaste

Bagels

Homemade Bagels feels like such a special treat. It is not hard to make and gives a silverlining to the day or night.
