Guys – do I have a treat in store for you today!!
Yes, you did read that right! Bacon Jam is probably one of the most amazing food creations that I have come across, its sweet, its savoury and its smoky all at the same time. Basically it is the best jam you will come across, and no longer will you waste your time with that strawberry nonsense ;)
I was looking at the calendar today – and I realised two things. One, we have been in Brazil for exactly 2 months today and secondly in exactly a months time, C and I will be on our way to Singapore (via Abu Dhabi for a few days) to celebrate Christmas.
Knowing how quickly time goes by, I thought I would start posting some really good Swedish Christmas recipes. Or at least the recipes that we prepare in my family every Christmas. Last year, C and I celebrated Christmas in Mexico City, and we put together a dinner for 15 people – it was such a success and everyone loved the food! Here you can read about my planning for that dinner and what we served Swedish Christmas in Mexico City Keep Reading
Although, I tend to do most of the cooking at home, that is not to say that ‘C’ cannot cook. In fact he is an excellent cook, and enjoys it almost as much as I do. On a day to day basis, I tend to have more time on my hands than he does (being unemployed and all), so am able to potter around far more in the kitchen. However, when he does cook I know that I am in for a real treat.
Today was no exception….Broiled scallops with butter and melted parmesan cheese! Keep Reading
What do you do with left over fish? Make fish cakes of course!
As I discovered a couple of weeks ago when I made the Thai inspired fish cakes, this is not only one of the most easiest and delicious ways of using up left over fish – but its incredibly healthy too! In most of the recipes I have read, they all call for mashed potatoes but I think that is an unnecessary carb, and for them to be fried – which is unnecessary fat! The fish cakes come together quite nicely with breadcrumbs, eggs and baked in the oven – serve them with a salad or what ever you heart desires, and voila another healthy dinner sorted without too much hassle!
