On Saturday I was craving something with carrots – it had to be careless! Amazingly easy to do and sooooo good! You can either fry it in rings of peppers or as I also tried to cover both sides with bread crumbs, personally I prefer the latter. All vegetarian but not vegan! Continue reading “Carrot Frittata”
The autumn is here now and that’s the time when it is really tasty and comforting to enjoy different kind of soups. This wonderful butternut soup has a Persian touch (lemon zest, lemon juice, ground cumin etc). Incredibly tasty I must say. Continue reading “Persian inspired Butternut soup!”
I had promised to bake Birthday cakes for my brother-in-law. Since we were going to be many people I decided to bake two cakes and two cheesecakes. The most popular one turned out to be my Lime cheesecake. Continue reading “Lime Cheese Cake”
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!

My daughter-in-law Anna is allergic to all fruits with kernel and nuts in general. In other words, there are few if any Granola Bars that she can eat., so I decided to make Granola Bars that she actually can eat. Continue reading “Anna´s Granola Bar”
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. I decorated my cake with icing – but it is not necessary, the cake is such a delight without the icing as well. Continue reading “Delicious cake with dates and nuts”
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!”
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”
I really like the American Mac & Cheese, but I consider it to be an autumn and/or winter food, but today there is a barbecue ban all over Sweden because of the risk for fire – so we are not even allowed to barbecue in our own garden. Continue reading “Mac & Cheese Swedish style!”
