I found this on another website researching Swedish recipes. I love to make it and not tell people it has anchovies in it until after they rave about how good it is. The anchovies melt into it to make a sauce. It has such a yummy flavor! Here is a quote from the recipe: "Jansson's Temptation is a classic Swedish dish traditionally served before guests leave to ensure that during their cold journey home they have something warm inside them."
Since my Recipe#206892 has received rave reviews...I decided to play with another favorite flavor combo...cinnamon and chocolate...Yum! Any strong brewed cinnamon flavored tea should work or chai. My favorite is Celestial Seasonings Bengal Spice...I love it with just Splenda and creamer too...it tastes like hot cinnamon candies!
This is adapted from a King Arthur Flour recipe. After not having any cookies for awhile because I was avoiding flour for the South Beach Diet...I thought I was in heaven with these! Peanut Butter, Oatmeal AND chocolate chips...YUMMY! My husband took most of them to work and his co-workers devoured them in 10 minutes...and they all wanted the recipe. It's very important to follow the baking instructions and not to overbake them or they'll be hard and not so good. The original recipe calls for 2 cups of chocolate chips...I only used one and had a hard time keeping them together...so I think 1/2-3/4 cup should be better. If you choose to use regular brown sugar double it because you use half the amount of Splenda Brown Sugar because it's twice as sweet. ENJOY!
This is adapted from Claudia Roden's "The New Book of Middle Eastern Food". I was pleasantly surprised by the flavor combos. It tastes like a very fresh carrot cake without all the work...and it's healthy!
These are very thin and crepe like but are heavier. They have a very smooth texture. I've read that these may not be authentic Swedish pancakes but the recipe was passed down to my great Grandmother Helen from my Swedish great great Grandmother Maria. It is over 100 years old...possibly 150 or more! Some of my Swedish relatives started the famous Svenhards bakery here in California. They no longer own it but their original packages have my great great Aunt Tilda's (Maria's sister) photo on them! There are similar recipes on Zaar but none with these proportions. My family eats them with maple syrup with melted butter in it and boysenberry syrup drizzled over that and then sprinkled with powdered sugar. You can also eat them with fresh fruit or jam. Servings are an estimate...some people eat 3...or some like me can eat 10! *My Grandmother makes these with up to 5 eggs sometimes and does add a pinch or two of salt.
This is my variation of a punch recipe from the Better Homes & Gardens cookbook. Raspberry everything! I've made it for several parties and potlucks and always have requests for the recipe. If I don't make it people get mad! I usually double or triple it and always have extra ginger-ale on hand to pour in when it gets thick. The dry ice is optional but makes for a very cool bubbly fog effect.
I just switched to stainless steel cookware this year. I've had several instances where I get food bonded to the bottom of a pan. One day my Mother was visiting and I was complaining about it. She said, "cream of tartar". I said, "huh"? She said it just popped into her head that my Great Grandmother used to say to sprinkle cream of tartar in a hard to clean stainless steel pan put some water in it and boil it until the crud comes off. Guess what? It works everytime! *This is my favorite posting because it has helped so many people...and apparently it works on more than stainless steel. :)
Editing per my Grandmother to get the story right: This cake recipe was passed down to my great Grandmother Helen from my Swedish great great Grandmother Maria. It is over 100 years old...possibly 150 or more! Some of my Swedish relatives started the famous Svenhards bakery here in California. They no longer own it but their original packages have my great great Aunt Tilda's (Maria's sister) photo on them! *My Grandmother also says to please beat the egg whites...they make the cake lighter and fluffier.
This is the way my Mom has been making enchiladas my whole life. She got the basic recipe from neighbors when she was a teenager. They are made with flour tortillas instead of corn and get a pasty texture which we enjoy. We always eat this with Recipe#195501 for a nice unhealthy comfort food meal. My Mom has also frozen these alongside the rice chile verde in aluminum containers...they bake up great in the oven!
