19Sept_LentilDal

Lovely and comforting Lentil Dal with pork loin

The last couple of weeks the weather has been amazing and I am quite sure it has been the warmest days of the year! I woke up this morning and much to my surprise the whole town was covered in sea mist, apparently more common at this time of the year than hot and sunny … Continue reading

WhitecobnutGazpacho

Oh what a party! White cobnut gazpacho and canapés

The last thing in the kitchen to be installed was the extractor fan. It was damaged in transport but whilst the rest of the kitchen moved along it got stuck along the way due to various events and summer holidays. Now the kitchen is looking pretty fab and it was time to take it for … Continue reading

06Sept_Prawns

Balsamic vinegar and honey glazed prawns with baked goats cheese and apple

A friend once said that cheese is a food group on it’s own. I am not quite sure that is completely right even if it should be but it is certainly one of my biggest weaknesses in life! There are so many different cheeses, flavors, textures, smells in an almost never ending variety and I … Continue reading

01Sept_TofuDinner

Crispy tofu and pineapple salsa in hibiscus and rosehip tea

Ever since I read Chef Juliannas delicious looking recipe Halibut in spicy pineapple broth with pineapple cucumber relish I have been thinking about it. One day I will do the recipe but this is loosely based on it and Chef Julianna was the inspiration. Her blog is full of inspirational recipes and beautiful pictures.   … Continue reading

28Aug_SquashToServe

Skirt steak and spaghetti squash with roasted cobnuts

I love seasonal eating and there are a few spaghetti squashes ripe in the garden, one of my favourite vegetables. Cob nuts came in to season last week and I can never resist them. The season is short so best make the most of it! Cob nuts are a part of the hazelnut family and I … Continue reading

A prawn starter and plaice with clarified goats butter and fresh horseradish

The Black Pig butcher opened early this summer and ever since we have been able to get great produce. Instead of breakfast I decided to go there and get some nice bacon and a couple of sausages for brunch. I had some spaghetti squash  left over and I thought it would go with the bacon … Continue reading

15Aug_PrawnSandwich

A very Swedish trip

It is funny when you are an expat. It was more than fourteen years ago since I left Sweden but it will always be home, just like the UK is home. I guess home is part of where you have your friends and where you are feeling comfortable and I figure I got the best … Continue reading

27Aug_YellowPeaCurryDinner

Spaghetti squash with split yellow pea and aubergine curry

Time has been on fast forward lately and if I have been at home it feels like it was just for a few hours to get some sleep. This was my last week at work. After this I have decided to take a day off, completely just doing what I want to do and to … Continue reading

11Aug_BakedLasagna

A crowd pleasing beef and sausage ragu lasagna

The other week, before I quite realized I had agreed to make, and bring food for a fund raising event. Afterwards I wasn’t sure how I had agreed to do it but I haven’t been to a fund raising event like this since my days in the deep South, Tennessee and that is a long … Continue reading

10Aug_Cod&EggYolks

Cod with poached, broken egg yolks the day after the barbecue

We had all sorts of weather this weekend, glorious sunshine, storms and torrential rain. Our neighbors hosted a barbecue and after monitoring the weather it was finally decided to have the barbecue on the Saturday and what a great choice! The sun was shining, it was very warm and a gorgeous day. We all brought … Continue reading
