I absolutely love a good focaccia. Focaccia is one of those sides that fit with almost any meal. You just change the seasoning on top (or inside) of the bread to fit whatever you are pairing it with. Good bread and especially a good focaccia is one of those things I just can’t stop eating, so I have tried a few recipes with whole grain flour to make it a little healthier. This version turned out really delicious, so I am sharing it with you. Continue reading
I thought I’d break up the rhubarb feature with a bit of a healthy breakfast/lunch treat. These are easy to make, healthy, tasty and great for a quick breakfast or to have in the lunchbox. My boys also enjoy these, so I see it as a great way to get a bit of fiber into them as well. I even use them as a little snack to tie them over before dinner. Continue reading
This is turning into a rhubarb week as I have several rhubarb dish recipes on hold. Having one ingredient in season, almost by itself is quite unique and slightly challenging as well. The great thing with rhubarb though is that you are able to harvest it for a couple of months if the weather is ok. And currently it is growing like crazy in the backyard.
My love for baking my own bread started quite recent with the discovery of no knead bread. As with most things, I don’t stick blindly to the recipe or technique as I like to experiment. Sometimes it fails and other times it is a success. This latest attempt was a great one and it turned out moist and tasty. Continue reading
Again we have had some lovely and busy days on the weekend with exceptional weather on Sunday. That of course has an impact on the time to work on the blog. But not to worry, I have had the opportunity to work on some dishes, I just haven’t had too much time to write up the posts. In the garden, we have dug up loads and loads of dandelions. The boys have helped carry them over to the compost and have been such good little gardeners, sharing a kid sized wheel barrow and running back and forth in the garden. We still have loads of dandelions to get rid off, but a little at the time and we will hopefully get there in the end. It is very nice to be able to work in the garden and have the help from the boys and seeing how helpful they are and how nicely they can work together when they get the right encouragement.
So what’s with all the travel posts from Denmark you may think?
I have recently been to Denamrk a few times to check on our holiday house down there. We will likely be going to Legoland every single year in the foreseeable future. Or at least there is a risk of that happening, but we will see. With two boys aged 2 and 4 years old, and a Lego loving uncle (even if he is slightly older …. almost 30 🙂 ) there will be Lego overload for years to come, especially for mum.
I love trying out new twists when baking bread, trying to find a good combination of ingredients and also the right proving. Sometimes it fails completely and all I get is a brick that smells good, other times it is a great success! And the fun is in the testing and tasting afterwards.
Sometimes you need some everyday luxury! And leading up to a long weekend and hopefully some great Spring weather, what could be more suited than a pot of mussels in a white wine broth? Continue reading
There is just nothing like a fresh and luke warm slice of bread!
A good crisp bread is great for breakfasts, lunch boxes or as a mid-day snack to tie you over. This one is slightly different to what I have made before, with chopped dates embedded in them, making these ones great as tapas sides with salty cheeses and salamis. I actually made these for a tapas and wine tasting evening we had with some friends. And I will share recipes for some of the other dishes I made in the coming days.
