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 🙂

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

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 🙂

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

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!! Brødrister-lyserød

 

 

 

 

 

Tiramisu

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

Tiramisu

  • 4 egg yolks
  • 125 gr. Sugar
  • ½ 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 – 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 – preferably overnight, but at least 3-4 hours. Just before serving put the cocoa powder over the top, in a nice thin layer.

The art of bruschetta

Hey lovelies

So the art of bruschetta, bruschetta can be many things. You can use tomatoes – the classic way, mushrooms w. cream. The options are endless!

One of my faves are the classic, with an onion, two tomatoes, a bit of garlic, salt pepper, and a bit of olive-oil. Toss it on a bread, and in the oven for 10 min.
If you have the time, and the courage then brown some butter, and the bread on a pan first, let it soak the butter, and brown a bit. Then add the tomatoes and in the oven for 6-7 min.

My ultimate go-to bruschetta, is super versatile, and can be used as pasta-sauce too.

  • Mushrooms (fresh mushrooms, and a whole lot of it ;))
  • Red-onions
  • Garlic
  • Cream
  • Port-wine
  • (maybe some parmesan cheese)

In a big pan you let the garlic and onion become glasslike, then you add the chopped-up mushrooms. Let the mushrooms brown, if they are too crowded they will shred water…
Then you add the cream, bring it to a small boil, and pour in three tablespoons of port-wine. Let everything simmer for 15-20 min. or until you have the texture you’d like.
It should be very creamy. Add salt and pepper – remember to taste!!! put it on bread, shred a bit of parmesan cheese over it, and in the oven it goes, for 10 min. or till the cheese is melted. 41b391ff2cbb5f65725114eede043ee7 b9f76f4020e320e96c0e051d02f519e8

Poaching eggs

Hey boys and girls!
sorry for the silence, I’ve been lacking motivation for cooking, and been out traveling. But These past few days, my motivation for standing in the kitchen has returned!

For a long time, I’ve been avoiding to poach eggs, simply because i thought it would be difficult, did a bit of research, and found a method, that seemed too good to be true – it works like a charm! it’s amazing! And who doesn’t love poached eggs? they are creamy and gorgeous!

What do you do?
take a pot, water in it, and bring it to a simmer – It shouldn’t boil, but just before!
Then you take a cup, put a piece of cling film over it, just making the cling film go down the cup, put in some olive-oil (otherwise the egg will stick to the cling film!). Crack in the egg in the cup/cling film, and sample the sides of the cling film, put a cooking elastic around the sides, so the egg doesn’t leak.
Finally, put the egg in the pot with simmering water, for about 3 min. – depending on how running you would like the egg to be, I like mine running, so I leave it in for just 3 min.

Serve your egg with some avocado and rye bread, or smoked salmon, rye bread and some spring onions 🙂

Sticky drumsticks w. fried rice

Hey guys As promised the other day, here is my recipe for sticky drumsticks and fried rice. It’s super easy  and tastes good – and can easily be used as lunch the next day! IMG_0422 Drumsticks: Lower thighs of chicken – as many as you like  🙂 Ketchup (6-7 table spoons) Brown sugar (3 table spoons) Soy-sauce (a table spoon) Oyster-sauce (1-2 table spoons) Garlic (one or two cloves crushed) if you like a pinch of fresh ginger. So you mix every-thing together, and cover/soak the chicken in the mixture, and place the chicken in a ovenproof tray. If there is anything left of the mixture, pour it over the chicken in the tray. Heat up the oven, on 200c, and when hot put in the chicken for 20-25 min. depending on the size of the chicken. This will keep the drumstick moist, and it won’t go dry 🙂 For the fried-rice, I used this recipe http://www.cookingclassy.com/2014/05/chicken-fried-rice/ I just left out the chicken, since I was making drumsticks 🙂

Pancakes – on the healthy side!

Hey guys! So as you all know, I’ve started to cut down on carbs, and basically that doesn’t really match with pancakes – or does it? It’s not completely carbs free, but it is a healthy alternative to the normal pancake, and it is a bit heavier, so you can’t eat 10 of them !FullSizeRender This batch makes about 20 of them (they can be used the day after too, just put them on a toaster for 30 sec’s ;))
you need:
2 eggs
5 dl milk
0.5 dl oats
3 dl wholemeal flour
1 dl flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons of olive oil.

You mix the dry ingredients; then add the olive oil, milk and eggs, and mix it all together, so you have a cohesive mass. And then just go about it as usual; a hot pan, and a spoonful or two of the mixture. Don’t forget to grease the pan 🙂

Serve with sirup, peanut butter or what you like 🙂
