Bacon – the most important ingredient??

Hey y’all

The rain is poring down in Aarhus at the moment – it feels like fall. And all I really want to do, is to crawl into bed, with a cup of tea and a good movie or book (and my boyfriend). How ever no time for that, so even tho’ Gossip Girl is running in the background, re-decorating my bedroom is what’s going down ๐Ÿ™‚

Yesterday we made burgers, mini-burgers!
With homemade mayo and bacon w. brown sugar, paprika and chili.
So yummi! it’s insane ๐Ÿ™‚

So you take a piece of bacon – not the pre-sliced kind, but the kind you slice yourself!
And 3-4 tablespoons of brown sugar, 1 tablespoon of chili flakes and 1 tablespoon of paprika, and pour it over the bacon, that you’ve sliced yourself ๐Ÿ™‚

In the oven it goes, at 200 degrees, for 20-25 min ๐Ÿ™‚
It’s insanely good! and usable in burger, or as a side for a BBQ-night ๐Ÿ™‚ย bacon

Food for the soul: Bacon-corn

Hey lovelies! The other day, a couple of my friends and I, was in this restaurant in Aarhus, Denmark (where I live). It’s called Memphis Roadhouse, and is a BBQ all in American ๐Ÿ™‚ And one of the side dishes, was corn, bacon and butter mixed in all together and heated. It was sooooo good!! Okay, maybe not in track with clean eating, but with a bit of good will, it would fall right into the LCHF-lifestyle, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hey lovelies!

Do you ever eat pizza? I bet you do, but sometimes, there might be leftovers, right?
At times a cold pizza is fabulous, but at other times, a cold pizza? just doesn’t do the trick.
What do you do then? heat it in the oven, even though it might get “flabby“? The same goes when you try to heat it in the micro-wave-oven.. It annoying, right?

Next time, you want to reheat a pizza-slice, use the toaster!!ย Brรธdrister-lyserรธd

Tiramisu

Who can resist this italian dessert, coffee, armeretto and one fluffy-vanilla-creme and cocoa-powder.. My God it’s good!!ย IMG_0703 IMG_0715 IMG_0714

Tiramisu

  • 4 egg yolks
  • 125 gr. Sugar
  • ยฝ fresh vanilla
  • 500 gr. Mascarpone
  • 24 ladyfingers
  • Good strong coffee – like espresso
  • Armeretto or another almond liqueur
  • cocoa powder

Make the coffee and let it cool โ€“ remember that it must be strong.

Then mix egg yolks, sugar and vanilla together to form a eggnog. So you are whipping the yolks, sugar and vanilla. Then put in, gently, the mascarpone.

When the cream is made, put the coffee into a shallow dish and then pour 2-3 tablespoons of liqueur in.

Take a lady finger and dips it in the coffee, and put it into the desired bowl / dish, you want it to be served in, do this until the entire bottom is covered, then put then a layer of cream on, and the process is repeated until you have no more ladyfingers and cream.

The cake should be refrigerated โ€“ preferably overnight, but at least 3-4 hours. Just before serving put the cocoa powder over the top, in a nice thin layer.

Veggie juice, breakfast juice – but what to do with the pulp?

Hey y’all !

So the other day, my boyfriend and I bought a KitchenAid – classic. And I must say, I’m in love with it! It’s not only functional but it’s beautiful!
For a long time I’ve wanted a juicer, so I’ve would be able to make my own juices etc. I’ve heard good and bad stuff about juicers, one of the things being that there is a lot of waste, so it’s expensive.
However, we bought a juicer for the KitchenAid.
And it AMAZING!! so many options! And it’s not that expensive, because you use the waste/pulp for baking! You got all the fibers and still some flavor, so why don’t you use the pulp for making bread, muffins, maybe cakes?

If you can’t use all the pulp right away or you don’t have time to bake right now? put the pulp in a plastic bag and in the freezer

Juice 1
(makes 800ML)
Beetroot (2 small or 1 large)
3-5 Carrots
2 big apples
1/4 of a lemon (if not ecological, don’t use the zest!)
1cm of ginger – if you like, I love ginger, my boyfriend? not so much ๐Ÿ˜‰
Optional: red or yellow pepper-fruit.
Start the juicer and have some fresh veggie juice ๐Ÿ™‚
Throw the pulp into a bowl, add some water – not much! because the pulp is already a bit wet ๐Ÿ™‚
add an egg, some oats flour, salt, and some natron and baking powder. Put the mixture into the wanted container, and in the oven for about 1.5 on 200 degrees Celsius.

I made a bread out of it, as you can see in the gallery ๐Ÿ™‚

Juice 2
(makes 350ML)

This juice is somewhat sweeter and maybe more child friendly? ๐Ÿ™‚
5-7 carrots
1 appel
5 strawberries
1cm ginger
100gr of frozen raspberries – I would use fresh next time!

Juice away ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

I am making muffins out of the pulp, but they are still in the oven!ย 
But I can tell I added some vanilla and a bit of chili flakes, so tomorrow you’ll if they turned out great ๐Ÿ™‚ย
