Years ago, I adapted this recipe from a 1970s paperback Booth's (Pillsbury) Fish and Seafood Cookbook. It has always had rave reviews from tasters here. It's on the stove now and two of our past exchange students, who are visiting now, want to know why I never served it before. It's quick, easy, tasty and nourishing. We love the herbs, so I tend to use up to a full teaspoon of each.
This easy-to-make dessert will impress family and friends. It comes together in minutes, but everyone will think you slaved over it. Make the Kahlua cream a day or two ahead, so the flavors develop. The instructions here call for the berries to be roasted, but it is perfectly fine -- and totally delicious -- to simply stir the berry ingredients together and let them marinate in the fridge for a few hours before assembling.* I figure roast them in winter and refrigerate them in summer. The recipe can be easily halved or doubled. Created for RSC #10.
You'll want an avalanche of this delicious snow. This recipe was given to me by a friend, Anne. It was a highlight of the menu for my oldest daughter's 21st birthday. Very easy and quick to make. For those who use imperial measure, 500 grams is just over a pound.
I adapted this from a low-carb cookbook. It is super easy and fast to make if you use your food processor's slicing blade. It is also a bit colourful on a buffet table. Times do not include refrigeration.
This is a family favourite -- even Aunt Esther loves it. And it's so easy to make. I've always had the kids help make the crust and press it into the pie pan. This is great for lunches and leftovers, too, as it reheats very well in the microwave. Adapted from a recipe in a Farm Journal cookbook.
Most of us make a lot of chicken dishes. This one is quick and easy, and full of flavor. It has been created for a Ready, Set, Cook contest. It uses seven RSC ingredients (two more than required), so you can omit the mushrooms if you are a non-mushroom lover. The timing is a little hard to calculate. Not counting the marinating (which I did overnight once and 8 hours for another time), I found that I could make all of the rest of the recipe within 50 minutes. But I was busy for a lot of the time.
A TOH recipe that I got in an email. Described as light and refreshing dessert that's creamy and pretty with the tart raspberry sauce, no one will ever guess that it's fat-free. I've been trying to eat healthier so this seems to fit the bill. Finally got around to making this for family and it was enjoyed by all. Not terribly sweet but the raspberry sauce really set it off - pretty easy also. If you decide to try it hope you'll like it as much as we did.
Wonderful with the Christmas Ham I've also posted. I tend to leave it cooking on a low flame until its tender, I've tried to give an idea of how long this takes but it all depends on the size of cabbage and how you like it. Don't worry, it can stay on the hob at a low temp for a rather long time without spoling (I've left it there for a couple of hours whilst waiting for other things to cook and its been great).
I often cook this for either Christmas Day (for a change from turkey etc) or for Boxing Day. We love it with creamed potatoes (Scandinavian style, but I'm sure Lyonnaise potatoes would go really well) and red cabbage (not the pickled sort).
I haven't made this recipe for a long time but I do remember enjoying it. Have found it again whilst looking for recipes for ZWT#6. Taken from Scandinavian Holiday Recipes.
Cooking time is chilling time.
I cook this whenever I do my Christmas Ham with Prunes and Red Cabbage recipes. The three work wonderfully together. Its taken from Scandinavian Holiday Recipes. I have copied the recipe directly but I've never added the herbs or leeks (I always seem to forget) and I must warn you that every time I do this the potatoes take ages (an hour or so!) to cook, maybe its me doing something wrong. The saving grace is that if you do do it to accompany the ham and cabbage, both of those recipes are very forgiving timewise ; ie the ham can be turned down and then rested and the red cabbage can simmer away quite happily just being stirred occasionally.
I've never made this recipe although have intended to many times. It is taken directly from Scandinavian Holiday Recipes. It doesn't specify whether to use fresh or dried tarragon but due to the amount I presume it would be dried.
Tippaleipä are served for "Vapu", the Finnish celebration on the First of May. The Finnish drink, eat and dance, ;probably because they are happy that the long winter is over. Kind of reminds me of funnel cake! I have not made this, but posted for ZWT6. I have no idea how many 'nests' this makes.
From Food & Wine's Nick Fauchald... "This drink tastes like cherry soda mixed with whiskey, with a bonus prize (muddled cherries) at the bottom of the glass. If you don't have Cherry Heering (a Danish cherry liqueur), use maraschino liqueur or, better yet, the juice left over from your homemade maraschino cherries" Posted for ZWT #6!
