I have decided to use everything in my fridge and freezer before buying more food. There is always something that never get used and after a while get trown out. Last nights dinner was made with chicken legs, kale, leek, zucchini and an orange. Braised with stock and indian curry spices. Kale is not an easy vegetable to work with specially as I don`t like the taste that much. I went online and found a recipe for crispy baked kale that sounded very interesting and turned out quite nice.
I was in the mood for a vegetarian curry and wanted to use sweet potato and eggplant. Found these cute mini eggplants in my store and grabbed a sweet potato without knowing it had white flesh instead of orange. In fact I did not know there were more than one type of sweet potato. The white one is not as sweet and has a drier consistency than the orange one, but it taste quite sweet and was great in this curry.
I had leftover plums in the house and as I don`t like to trow away perfectly fine food I made this sweet and tangy plum chutney with warm spices. Plum chutney goes very well with pork,so todays dinner will be this tasty chutney, pork chops and mash. The recipe is adapted from Jamie Oliver. I made a small portion but you can double the recipe if you like.
It is not always easy to bake cakes without gluten, the result vary to say the least. So I think muffins is the best way to go, they never fail me. This is a fall version with apples, sugar and cinnamon. The muffin recipe is a great basic one to use for other flavours as well, like chocolate, berries or why not citrus.
This is one of my go to dinners. Stir frying is easy and can be varied with different types of meat and vegetables.
You can buy ready made sauces but it`s not that hard to make your own. With a little garlic, ginger and chili you are half way there. You should also have some asian sauces in your pantry, to start buy some soy sauce, oyster sauce, teriyaki and sesame oil. Then you are set to make great stir fry dinners.
There is something cozy and warming with the taste of cinnamon in cakes and bakes, specially in the fall.
A cup of tea, a slice of cake and a good book, what can be better! This pound cake is easy to make, no mixer required.
It taste great plain, but a salted caramel frosting makes everything even better. To make the cake even prettier
I decorated with cute sugar pumpkins.
Have a great summer! I will take a break from blogging this summer but I will be back in august when my blog has 5 years anniversary. You can still follow my instagram account where I will be posting photos.
This is a great summer dessert. Strawberries is my favorite berries. The bright red color and the sweetness.
Delicious to eat as is or in a dessert like crumble. So why not make this your weekend dessert.
It is super easy to make and utterly delicious. Enjoy!
This is a bowl of superfood! Quinoa and bean salad, citrus marinaded salmon and veggies. Good for body and soul to eat this kind of food. Flavorful marinades and vinaigrettes makes it even better. I am so happy spring is here!
This great and tasty vegetarian dish is slightly adapted from Bill Grangers cook book Easy. I made a blogpost back in 2012 of this great dish, but the photos then really did not make the dish justce so I decided to redo the post. I have served this cottage pie numerous of times on meatfree days, we absolutley love it.
