    Slow cooker pulled pork – a Crock Pot recipe

    This is a sponsored post I have been eyeing a Crock Pot for a while now because I think it would be something that would benefit me and my family a lot. It has been hugely beneficial and I love it. You put everything in one pot, put the timer on and leave the house (if you want that.) You don’t have to watch it, add more liquid to it, you just wait until it gets done. Making everything in one pot makes me not go insane. They come in different sizes. I got the big one that holds 5 litres since every other week we are seven people, that’s right, seven. Just…

  • Scandinavian Thanksgiving dinner

    Scandinavian Thanksgiving dinner

    We now celebrating a Scandinavian Thanksgiving dinner. With the delicate things that are in season right now. There are always things to be thankful for. In the past, we haven’t celebrated Thanksgiving in Sweden, for obvious reasons. In fact, in Skåne, where I live, we have Mårten Gås. Which is a massive geese dinner, with black soup as a starter. The black soup is basically blood soup, I’m a little embarrassed to admit – I have never tried this tradition. However, over the past couple of years a lot of American traditions, have made their way into our Scandinavian homes. Which we have adapted and Thanksgiving is no exception. We make an appreciation dinner out of it.…

  • Jack O'Lantern bell peppers

    Jack O’Lantern bell peppers

    Jack O’Lantern bell peppers are such an easy and delicious dish to make. We made them for Halloween and will make them again this Saturday for a Halloween party. Bell peppers are easy to make into scary faces and even the kids can help carve them. I filled mine with couscous, but really you can use anything to fill them with anything. My grandmother used to fill them with minced meat and cook them in tomato sauce. They weren’t Jack O’ Lantern bell peppers but filled bell peppers none the less. I wanted to make me Jack O’Lantern bell peppers vegetarian, thus I skipped the meat this time. If you want them gluten…

  • Scandinavian Friday tacos

    Scandinavian Friday tacos

    Scandinavian Friday tacos are almost like an institution in Sweden. We call it ”fredagsmys” which loosely translates to cosy Friday. Loads of families eat Friday tacos, followed by crips and watching a movie on the sofa. Which sounds kind of relaxing right? True, but when your kids are asking for the same Friday tacos, every Friday what’s a mama to do? You find creative ways to make them differently. However not as differently so that the kids won’t eat them. It’s Friday tacos fun! It’s also in this week’s Gram weekend food bag! This weekend we have totally embraced the Scandinavian Friday feeling. With the ”fredagsmys”, but I have mixed it up a little…

    Savoury pancakes with chanterelle

    Savoury pancakes with chantarelle are easy to make, they are glutenfree and versatile! School is now back in full gear and in Sweden is almost time for the autumnal break. This usually gives me a little food angst. Kids home all day, hungry! In Sweden, we are lucky enough to have served qualitative lunch at school every day. This takes some of the pressure off. We don’t have to pack lunch boxes for our kids and most schools have decent food. But we all have the same problem after school, making dinner. The hour between getting home and until dinner is served is called the hell hour for a reason. Everyone, including myself, is…

    Triple cheese beetroot pizza

    Do you love cooking seasonally? Either way, you’ll love this recipe. Triple cheese beetroot pizza! It’s not only pretty to look at with all the autumnal colours. But it’s also packed with flavours to get you through the autumn. Beets are not only delicious to eat, they are also packed with nutrients. Such as B vitamins, iron, manganese, copper, magnesium, and potassium. These red little gems are in season now, with all kinds of variations. I personally love the polka dot beetroot. Especially to eat raw in a salad. Fall apples are also in season, and they are particularly tasty to cook with. They tend to be a little bit more savoury and…

    Hungarian zucchini stew

    I have been craving Hungarian zucchini stew for a while now and with the surprise veggie bag from Los Perros Urban farming containing all the ingredients, I took as a sign. Now I haven’t cooked anything Hungarian since my Nana passed away a couple of years ago. For various reasons. However, one being that Hungarian dishes take a lot of time to make. Both my mum and my Nana used to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Especially Sunday dinners. Anyway, this Hungarian zucchini stew is traditionally served either as a side dish or a main dish served with potatoes. In fact, a lot of families were weekday vegetarians and had…

    Jerusalem artichoke soup

    A creamy and rich Jerusalem artichoke soup is perfect on a day like this. Not only is it meat-free Monday, but it’s also a cold autumn day here in Scandinavia. The season has changed and even though the sun might show itself, you can feel the change of the season. That is good news. At least when it comes to food. The foods available right now are amazing! One of which is the Jerusalem artichoke. I absolutely love Jerusalem artichoke soup. This recipe gives you a threesome of typical Scandinavian flavours, Jerusalem artichoke, dill and potatoes. I think this or a version of this soup was one of the first things we were taught…

    Creamy Chanterelle soup

    Creamy Chanterelle soup has got to be one of the most Swedish dishes I know of. Not for nothing we call it the ”forest gold” in Sweden. And that golden season is upon us. What better way to kick off the season than with a creamy, full of flavour chanterelle soup? Enjoy! The x marks the spot People here in Sweden have their own secret spots for picking these golden mushrooms. You see these spots popping up all over Instagram. Without the geotag. The locations for these mushroom picking spots are secret. Farmers market Since I don’t have a secret spot of my own I buy them in a store. Because how else would…
