GREEK YOGURT W. RASPBERRIES & WALNUTS

Greek yogurt has become one of my favorite foods and I always have some in the fridge. I use it for dessert, afternoon meals or for dipping such as tzatziki. One of my favorites is this fast and easy made dessert. All you need is Greek yogurt, raspberries (frozen is fine), honey, brown sugar and walnuts

If you are going on a picnic, make this dessert in a jar and seal with a lid. Bring two spoons and you'll be having a tasty and easy to enjoy treat in any romantic spot you choose.

Hope you're enjoying your weekend.

GLUTEN FREE CRISP BREAD

I love crisp bread, especially if it’s rustic and full of grains, and this is the best crisp bread recipe I have ever tried. These crisps are perfect for snacks as well. By adding different flavored salts for example, you can make really nice and healthy treats.

The recipe is from this site, which is run by a Danish woman who have been eating and experimenting with gluten-free baking for 20 years. Her experience with different types of gluten-free flour is quite extensive. She's also really good at making delicious everyday recipes, which is often what you need the most when eating gluten-free. The site is in Danish, but I'm sure Google will be able to translate it so it's relatively understandable :-)

I have translated the recipe so you all can easily try it out. One note though about measuring units; DL means deciliter = 0,1 liter = ca. 0,42 cups

I have made a recipe card, which can be printed in 4"x 6" (10 x 15 cm), so they are perfect for your recipe box. Just right click and save image.

Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions

Hope you are having a great week.

 

 

HEART SHAPED SWISS ROLL

Mother's Day is coming up soon and I’m pretty sure you're all preparing something wonderful for your mothers. I lost my mom when I was a kid, so unfortunately I don't get to give mother's day gifts. But if she was here, I would have made this for her.

It's a favorite recipe of mine, actually a Swiss roll, but I felt like turning it in to a layered heart shaped cake instead. My mom would have loved this. She baked a lot herself and I know she would have loved to know how much I enjoy baking too. Well, maybe she knows.

1. Measure out a piece of carton ca. 20 x 20 cm, fold it and cut out "half" a heart from it.

2. Make you Swiss roll mix and spread onto a baking tray 30 x 40 cm. 

3. Make your filling

4. When the cake has cooled, cut out three hearts by using the heart shaped piece of carton. (Make one heart in two pieces, to make it fit)

5. Cover a plate with three sheets of baking paper. Place the first cake layer here. The sheets can overlay, but they should not reach more than to the middle of the plate.

6. Take almost 1/4 of you filling and spread on layer one. Place layer two on top of that and add another 1/4 of the filling here. 

7 Place the last layer (i used the two halves here) on top of that and spread what's left of the cream filling, covering top and sides.

8. And you’re done! Now gently pull out the baking sheets from each side. You can use a fork at the bottom to lightly hold back the cake, when you pull out the sheets. Decorate your cake with strawberries or raspberries as you wish.

Have fun making your mother's day gifts.

CHICKEN SANDWICH W. CURRY & CHILI DRESSING

I just love chicken and bacon sandwiches. And I love it even more when you add a curry & chili dressing. It gives it that slight twist. This would be a nice meal to bring on your next picnic.

I prefer to use chicken filets, instead of cold cuts. It makes me fuller. I like bacon w. chicken but you can easily leave it out if you don't eat pork. The choice of greens are very optional, this is very traditional, cucumber, tomatoes and baby spinach. I always use spinach in my salads. I love the taste and they are so full of vitamins. Next time I think I'll use sprouts as well. Healhty and crispy.

The dressing is a really good one. I hardly ever use mayo in my dressing, so they are very light and fresh in taste. If you have any leftover chicken filets, you can use the dressing as dip. It tastes really good.

Happy cooking!
  

HOMEMADE BREAD

Since 2007 I have been eating gluten free. In the beginning I mostly bought the gluten free food I needed, but with time, when it became more of a life style, I started to bake and make my own bread, cakes and so on. I have always appreciated food and I love to cook, but the awareness living gluten free has brought to my life, is probably what I am most grateful for. It has forced me to listen to my body, feel the difference between bad and good foods, and it has really taught me to enjoy homemade meals.

Bread and desserts are some of my favorite kitchen endeavors. I love the smell of homemade bread and even more to eat it. Dessert is something I especially like to make for others. I just love the expression someone gets when they take that first bite of a really yummy dessert.

When I started out baking I always used a recipe. The bread in these pictures is one of those "let’s see what we have in the cupboard" kind of bread. I have a basic recipe I use and then I change it, according to what I might have at home. I like baking this way, but I can't give you the exact recipe here. I can tell you, though, that some of my added ingredients are oats, linseed, sunflower, buckwheat, and rice flour.

BASE RECIPE: makes 1 loaf

1 cup water
15 g yeast
4 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp honey
2 1/2 cups gluten free flour 

Let rise for 1 hour. 
I sometimes let it sit for another 30 min in the baking tray before baking it.
Bake about 30-40 min. at 220 degrees celsius. 

Have a great Saturday!

WEDDING DECOR PART II

Today I have a really cool post for all of you, who just love making homemade presents. For my wedding I made these party favors for people to take home, but they would work just as well as a hostess gift or if you just like surprising someone special with a homemade present. 

I made this like a set, with three different homemade gifts; a jar of jam, chocolate flake tops and brownie mix in a jar. I put labels on everything to give it a fun and pretty look.

The brownie mix idea is inspired by this post from Call Me Cupcake (just love that site). I adjusted the recipe slightly to only contain milk and dark chocolate and not white chocolate. The layering is as written in the recipe in the above picture, except you mix the salt, flour, baking powder and pour in one half before cocoa and other half after. Add a tag with the baking instructions to the jar. You can use this text:

Mix with the following ingredients:

3 large eggs
150 g butter
4 tbsp strong coffee
1 tsp vanilla 

Bake for 25-30 minutes at 175 C (350F) 
 

I made the jam from a bag of frozen mixed berries, but you can use any recipe you like for this one. Mine was kind of a testing recipe, which luckily turned out pretty well, so I don't have the exact measurements to give you at this point.

The bag of Chocolate flake tops is a favorite of mine. Super easy to make and I would also recommend them as snacks for kids, if you want something that doesn't contain lots of sugar and coloring. Right click the recipe card to download and print. You can use a small paper bag, pretty easy to get a hold on or maybe make your own. I used this template (without the closing at the top) and folded it from a piece of drawing foil I had laying around. 

I used a 1 liter jar for the brownie mix and a smaller for the jam. If you like to print these tags, you'll have to use approximately these size lids; brownie jar lid ca 8,7 cm in diameter and jam lid is ca. 5,8 cm. The extra white is to cover the sides of the lid. Print on adhesive paper, cut along the line and position the label in the middle of the jar lid and fold down the excess white onto the side of the lid. It will automatically get a wrinkled look. Use the square label to close the bag of chocolate flakes.

I you have any questions regarding this project, feel free to ask. 

Hope you have fun!

GREEN DRINK

Hi, hope you are all doing just wonderful. 
I sometimes find it difficult to eat enough fruit and vegetables to get me the vitamins I need, especially during the wintertime.
 
 
So I remembered, that I some time ago saw a recipe, where spinach were used in a drink.
 
 
As I almost always have fresh spinach at home, I went straight to my fridge, hoping to be inspired and find something to mix it with.
 
 
I opened the fridge and the lemon and ginger just called out at me:
USE ME, USE ME.....:-)
 
 
So I grabbed 'em and came up with this wonderful drink:
 
1 handful of spinach (frozen will do as well)
Juice from 1/2 lemon
A small piece of ginger
About 1,5 dl of water 
 
Run it all through a blender.
 
 
BON APPETITE

SWEDISH SAFFRON BUNS

Christmas is not really Christmas without a lot of baking. Growing up in a family, that was blessed with a mother who just loved baking and cooking, we got to enjoy a lot of homemade breads and cookies. Around Christmas it was quite special, because my mom would bake for days to fill the cupboard and freezer, so she always had something delicious to serve, when people came over.
 
 
These buns are Swedish saffron buns, pretty much a sweet wheat bun, except for the saffron spice, which gives it a lovely color and makes it smell fantastic. Today it's St. Lucia Day and on this day saffron buns are traditionally enjoyed in Sweden.
 
 
 
 
Merry 13. December.

EASTER CHOCOLATE

Easter holiday is no holiday without chocolate. I have made some of my favorite chocolates and shaped them into eggs. This is perfect as a gift, just place in a nice box and wrap with colorful ribbons. Or you can serve it for dessert, together with a strong cup of coffee.
 
Have a beautiful Tuesday! /Annika
 
 
 

SUNDAY BISCOTTIS

Yesterday I baked these delicious biscottis and I thought they would make a really cute gift in an old can with ribbon and an easter tag. You can download and print the tags(A4 sheet w. 12 tags) here: Bunny tags

I have always enjoyed biscottis with coffee, but yesterday I learned that traditionally (In Italy) they are dunked in vin santo. I'm looking forward to try them that way.

The recipe is fairly simple:

 
100 g chopped almonds
75 g pine-nuts
250 g flour
150 g sugar
2 eggs + 1 egg yoke
1/2 tsp vanilla sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

Roast almonds on a pan.
Chop pine-nuts and mix with all dry ingredients. Add almonds
Mix in the eggs and combine until you have a smooth dough that can be shaped into 2 cm thick rolls.
Place on oven-tray covered w. paper and press lightly down on the rolls.
Bake for 15 min. in preheated oven at 190 degrees Celsius.
When done, take out the tray and cut the rolls into 2 cm wide pieces.
Turn off oven and place the biscottis in the oven for another 15 min to dry.
 
Have a beautiful Sunday everyone! /Annika
