While looking for an interesting recipe for blueberry muffins I stumbled across information regarding flax seed. I looked at a number of muffin recipes and combined several to come up with these. They are healthy, with no added oil, yet moist.
A hearty Mexican vegetable dish made with red kidney beans. To vary the dish, vary the beans. And to make it vegetarian, omit the bacon or replace it with vegetarian sausage. I have posted this recipe, adapted from an International Masters '1001 recipes for Pan or Wok' for the 2005 Zaar World Tour.
A non-traditional Aquavit recipe from Swedish chef Marcus Samuelsson of Aquavit in NYC and Minneapolis. Use a good quality potato vodka for this recipe. The Aquavit needs to stand for 6-8 weeks before it is ready.
This festive salad has a sweet, smokey, spicy flavor from the grilled veggies and Chipotle pepper in adobe sauce. Serve this on a bed of greens. This I tossed up from left over grilled asparagus and corn.
A quick and easy salad recipe that is perfect for the summer. Great with BBQ food! The Tarragon wine vinegar really gives this a wonderful flavor. It should chill for at least 2 hours before serving. Recipe adapted from Scandinavian Spice Company for the Zaar World Tour II.
Sometimes I have a craving for cinnamon bread. This easy and fast to make cinnamon flat bread can be served for breakfast or with glass of milk, a cup of coffee or tea. It is tasty on its own, but you can serve it with your favorite jam, peanut butter, or some fresh cheese. It is not overly sweet. The whole spelt flour adds a delicate nutty note, but you can also use whole wheat flour.
According to Marcus Samuelsson, this is traditionally made in Sweden in June when the wild strawberries (which heretofore I only associated with Ingmar Bergman) are available. But Marcus says it's delicious with cultivated strawberries, or you can substitute other berries or a combination thereof. Cooking time includes three hours of cooling/chilling time.
