new year drink coctail appatizer delliedelicious madboggerudfordringen

Well we’re soon there, New Years Eve 2015. And maybe you have started to plan your menu, or maybe you’re just looking for inspiration online. I’m in a challenge on the Danish site Madbloggerudfordringen where I have to come up with a drink and appetizer for the big evening. I love bubbles, and what is more appropriate on New Years Eve than bubbles? To make it a bit more exiting I’ve reduced an apple and pomegranate juice to a syrup that I’ve added to my favourite organic Prosecco. I’ve also added a little bit of rosemary to add some extra yum.
I wanted to bring the pomegranate into the appetizer as well and make something that is fast and easy, since preparing a dinner party can be quite stressful. So I’ve made parmesan chips and a salmon tartar with pomegranate seeds. It’s super fresh and delicious so that it goes really well with your drink.

Fig Marmalade

Figs are beautiful this time of year and my local fruit market had tons of them. So I bought some and decided to do something that would last more than just one meal – marmalade! I mean, who can say no to a delicious and sweet marmalade on top of a creamy cheese?
This marmalade is, as it should be, quite sweet so I’ve added some lemon zest to balance it out a little bit. You can also add a cinnamon stick if you want to give it a more Christmas feel. It’s also perfect as a gift in a cute jar. 

800 g ripe figs, roughly chopped
1 vanilla bean, split and seed scraped
400 g sugar
juice of 1 lemon

Put all ingredients in a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let this sit at room temperature for 8 hours.
Transfer to a pan. Stir over low heat to dissolve sugar. Bring to a boil and let it cook for 45 minutes on low heat. Stir regularly.

Delicious Chanterell Sandwiches

I’m really lucky to be living in a part of our world where we can go out and pick anything we like in the forest. And this autumn the forest has been flooded with gold (chanterelles that is ). And the best way of preparing chanterelles is to just fry them gently in butter. Lots of butter. Like a lot, a lot! And some fresh thyme. It’s delicious! You can eat them directly out of the pan or you can do what I do and fry of some bread in the same pan after frying the mushrooms. And serve the chanterelles on top. Wow, it’s so simple and so yummy!
In this recipe I have used a sourdough bread from my bakery – Landbrød. It’s quite fine bread which I think goes great with this dish.
So here it is, my super simple and super delicious chanterell sandwich recipe: Read more

Serving suggestion

Blueberries have invaded our forest and it’s time to start picking!
Blueberries are great, they are full of good stuff and taste amazing. I always pick lots of them and freeze them down so that I can use blueberries all year around. And they keep for 1 year in the freezer so by the time that you’re out of berries they’re in season again. 
If you want to make something different with your blueberries than the usual pie or muffin recipe, this is it! Blueberry Chutney! It tastes amazing paired with lamb or with cheese. I used mine as a topping on a lamb sausage together with chantarelle chips and thyme. Delicious!

Nettle Soup

Nettle season is here! At least here in the northern parts of Europe. I grew up eating nettles. As soon as it started raining my mum sent me and brother out to pick these green burning leaves. But we loved the soup so much that it was worth it.
It’s such a great feeling of finding something growing wild in the nature and be able to pick it, use it and eat it – all for free. And it’s super healthy as well. Nettles are packed with vitamin A, iron and proteins. You can dry the leaves and blend them into a fine powder and use it in cooking, for nettle tea or when baking bread. Or you can do what I do in this recipe and blanch them and use them for soup. After blanching you can put the nettles in freezing bags and freeze for another day. I always say that you can substitute nettles for spinach. It works great as a pie filling, in breakfast muffins, eggs florentine and so on. It’s so tasty and delicious! Read more

Perfect scrambled eggs!

Scrambled eggs is perfect for breakfast with some crispy bacon to go along with it. I’ve noticed that a lot of people here in Norway and Sweden believes that scrambling eggs is just to crack eggs in to a pan and stir with a spatula. And when it’s a bit brown – it’s done. I hope that this recipe will help you to understand that it’s not difficult to get fluffy, creamy and perfect scrambled eggs with no fuzz.

Deviled Eggs with Jalapeños and Bacon

Easter is getting closer so I thought that I have to share some of my favourite egg-recipes. I love eggs! They are so versatile. So today you’ll get a recipe for an hors d’oeuvre that’s great for your Easter celebration. Deviled eggs goes way back in history, to the Romans actually. You serve hard boiled egg that you have cut in half and filled with a spicy filling (therefore it’s called ‘deviled’ for it’s spiciness). The spicy flavour usually comes from the mustard that you use in the filling.I’m obsessed with jalapeño poppers so I wanted to do something with jalapeños, and egg and bacon is a combo made in heaven so I’ve added those two together and tadaa!
