Pinnekjøtt; steamed lamb

Pinnekjøtt is my favorite Christmas dish. The lamb is very salty and incredibly tender. It gets a nice aroma when steamed layered on a set of wooden sticks. This dish is naturally without gluten and milk, so there is really no reason for me to have this recipe on the blog. But I can’t help myself – I simply love pinnekjøtt!

Today, the 4th of October, is the day of the cinnamon bun – in Sweeden anyway. This get a lot of attention in Sweeden, and we brought the tradition with us when we moved back to Norway.

Juicy chicken thighs

Chicken thighs are a great alternative to chicken filets. It takes a while longer to prepare but they are well worth it considering the flavors and the moisture. We chose a bag of frozen chicken thighs from Sweden, which we defrosted and roasted whole in the oven. Fantastic! Continue reading Juicy chicken thighs

Sea food wok with pangasius and squid

We enjoy trying new things, and exceeded own expectations when we bought a packet of frozen squid. We had no idea how to cut or clean, prepare or season it, but that just made it all the more exciting. Today was the day we would try it, and we decided on a lovely hot seafood wok. We included an interesting new vegetable as well; a daikon radish. It comes from the same vegetable family as our normal red radish, but has a mild flavor and fit perfectly as a crunchy wok vegetable.
