The best ice-cream ever!
Planning to visit our oldest son with family this weekend and I decided to make an ice-cream bomb, with flavors that I know they like. Since my daughter-in-law is allergic to Pome fruits, I decided to make coconut ice cream that I have blogged about before, combined with strawberry ice cream (or sorbet) and ginger ice cream. Continue reading “Strawberry ice-cream or sorbet!”
This is a very easy recipe and suitable when you are very many people or just a few! Wonderful Sunday breakfast. Continue reading “Swedish pancake in the oven”
It’s no secret that we Iranians drink an incredible amount of tea every day. It is a ritual about tea drinking that is not so widely known. On the other hand, what most do not know is that Iran produces lots of tea. It’s really an incredible story about how the production started in Iran. In 1895, the English had a monopoly on tea production in India with the quite rigid rules for non-Europeans to engage in this trade. Continue reading “Chai – Te – Tea”
Today I am going to serve cevapcici and of course tzatziki, a wonderful combination and suitable for the wonderful spring day that we have in Stockholm today. I have experimented a lot with the recipe but this basic recipe is just so easy and delicious. Continue reading “TZATZIKI!”
I have learned that there is a difference between meringues and meringues! It is said that meringues originate from the town of Merringen in Switzerland. The meringues available to buy are pretty dull in my opinion. It is quite easy to make meringues yourself so why buy?
Use areas for meringues are many, I myself like to make meringues and serve it with ice cream or gelato. Simply put, your own imagination is the limit 😊

hen people ask me how long I have lived in Sweden, my answer is always the same: as long as I consider pancakes to be a dish! At the beginning (1966) I thought it was strange that the Swedes ate pancakes with lingonberry jam and whipped cream as a dinner dish, for me it was a dessert really, hence my answer. Continue reading “Swedish Pancakes”
Our kids were coming over for Easter and I wanted to make some Gelato, after making the Gelato I had many egg whites left, I know that you can freeze the egg whites but I came to think of Budapest roll which is a Swedish cake and not Hungarian as one might think. The creator is said to be Ingvar Strid who was a confectioner from Vetlanda, the reason why he called it Budapest roll remains a mystery. The classical Budapest roll is made with hazelnuts and mandarin segments in a can. Continue reading “Anna´s Budapest roll”
The Swedish name for this cake is “Tigerkaka”, or “Tiger cake”, but I guess that the correct translation is Marble Cake. At the end of the 1970s, I bought a cookie mold, it also contained some recipes. A recipe that is incredibly frequent in our household is the marble cake. It is still our kids favorite cake. We also have fun how the chocolate mix is distributed every time, we have a little guess game about what it represents, I think I enjoy the game more than anyone else 😊 Continue reading “Marbled Cake”
Visited Ingelsta Kalkon in Stockholm not so long ago, we were going to put in an order for a party hosted by my brother-in-law. We seized the opportunity to have lunch there. Ordered turkey pie, it was so good that I thought: I must try and make this when I get home! Had all the ingredients at home, as I imagined I just had to make my basic meat sauce and then roll it into puff pastry. Said and done. I froze the pies individually and forgot all about it. Continue reading “My Persian minced turkey Pie”
When I bought Freekeh I was thinking of making a meat sauce with it. So today I made it for lunch, what a delight! You can, of course, add more seasoning to it like dried herbs, etc. But the basic vegan meat sauce is just fine as it is. Will work very well for moussaka or spaghetti and so on. Just taste as you go and add the things you like. It is slightly more chewy than minced meat Continue reading “Vegan meat sauce”
