Dressing from Getryggen!

My dear niece Shirin with family has a summer cottage in Getryggen in the region of Hälsingland,  Sweden, a wonderful place where visitors can fully charge their batteries! This is the place where you just do whatever you want.
We gathered there to celebrate Kahan (nephew) and Tina (his wife) who together became 100 years! I made the dinner and Shirin made the salad dressing that was incredibly good! Asked to get the recipe of course!

Delicious cake with dates and nuts

There are few things that most Iranian household always have at home. Dates and walnuts are among these ingredients. I saw a TV program where they made a date cake and got very inspired to do my own version. Here is my interpretation.

Tasty twirls!

I ordered party food for my brother in law from a place called Ingelsta Kalkon here in Sweden, everything is made out of Turkey. They had some twirls that were incredibly delicious. I exchanged recipes with the company, they received a recipe from me and I was told how the twirls were made, but no measure. Now I’ve tested it several times and it just gets better and better.

The twirls from Ingelsta Kalkon did not have as much bacon as I use, they were significantly smaller as well. But here is my version or interpretation of these tasty twirls. It is very nice to serve it with a drink before dinner for example. I served it with champagne when I held Baby Shower for my daughter-in-law. She loves these twirls and I make it for her every time they come for a visit 😊 Continue reading “Tasty twirls!”

My Persian-Greek Spinach Pie

When I was organizing a baby shower for my daughter in law, Anna, I decided to make spinach pies. A friend of mine had given me a recipe, I knew how he made it but no measures! I have now adjusted everything to my own taste and I am happy to say that the result was incredibly good.
Took some with me when I visited my brother in law who is 95-year-old and who is quite picky when it comes to food. He gave me feedback that I should add a little more acidity in the pie. I myself thought that I needed some crunchiness in the pie as well. Continue reading “My Persian-Greek Spinach Pie”
