Cream puffs - Eclairs - Profit Roles of choux pastry

Video Recipe - The dough used for baking cream puffs, eclairs and profit roles is called a "choux" dough in French. The interesting thing about it is that you cook it in a sauce pan, and then mix in the eggs. The dough has the special feature that it largely becomes only crust when you bake it. So there is room for a lot of fillings. Although I have also seen it just covered with icing and used gingerbread man.

I am currently translating the recipes from my danish site as quickly as possible.

All about vanilla egg creams and custards
Video Recipe - Eggs, for me, is one of the most fascinating cooking ingredients that exist. They are used both in the savoury and the sweet cuisine, and has been part of our diet always. They are healthy, they taste good and they are cheap. Especially for the creamy stuff eggs are indispensable. Since it is a subject that is dear to my heart, I thought I had better write an article about "eggs in soft mixtures".
Vanilla Ice, Basic Recipe - Simple Yet Very Good
Video Recipe - Vanilla Ice to me, is the "real" ice cream. Everything else is just decoration. I have made for many years and have tried countless recipes and methods. So I, I have finally found one basic recipe that is really good, but may be varied widely as needed. And withtime I have gotten an understanding of what to change in an ice cream recipe to make to your wish. And I'm not afraid to share my secrets.
Æbleskiver - Aebleskiver - Apple Slices - American pancakes - pancake cake
Video Recipe - Classic Nordic food. A round cake baked in a special pan, that all Scandinavians know and love. At least all Danes. Good with both icing sugar, jam or syrup. The same recipe can be used to make the small thick American pancakes you always see eaten on tv and films. You can also use it to make a layer cake with.
Manhattan Style American Cheesecake
Cheese cake - An American cheesecake is made from real cream cheese, and in contrast to the "cheese cake" we usually eat in Denmark it is baked. It's not a cake I bake very often for only the family. It is a dense and heavy cake where a single piece or two generally is enough. So a whole cheesecake never gets eaten here. But it is a fantastic cake. Especially when there are guests to share with.
Fried rice with egg and chicken (or other meat)
Video Recipe - It is a dish that only takes 10 minutes to make. So it is fast and it tastes really well. An Asian classic that we eat too little of here in Denmark. Potatoes and meat is typical of the danish leftover dish "biksemad/pyttipanna". Rice and meat leftovers is in this Asian equivalent.

Red Roasted Prime Rib
Beef and veal prime rib is a beautiful piece of meat. The red marbled meat sitting on the cut ribs. It's not a cut we usually see at the butcher her in Denmark, but he can make it for you if you ask. Otherwise, go to the closest halal butcher, they will most likely have it. I usually roast it whole, and usually in my grill, where it will get a mild smoky taste of rosemary. The eyes lighting up around the table when the big piece of meat is served is worth it alone.
Orange - Chocolate Muffins
Video Recipe - My favorite recipe for muffins. Easy to make. They are large, moist and tasty. In the past I did not eat muffins. I knew them only as small pieces of sponge cake with paper to be pulled off. Boring and tedious. But when we go abroad, the family is thrilled to get into Starbucks and get cocoa and muffins. Their muffins are also large moist and tasty. I then made this recipe inspired by them. And now the family will rather have "our own" muffins.
Homemade Feta Cheese
Video Recipe - It is a LOT of fun to make your own cheese and it's actually pretty easy. It does takes a little bit of utensils and ingredients that you don't normally have, but they are easy to obtain and it is definitely worth the effort. The funny thing is that all the cheeses we know have the same basic recipe. Just small changes in how you follow the recipe gives the different cheeses. So if you can make a kind of cheese you can actually make them all. Feta cheese is one of the easiest and fastest. And you don't have to wait a month before it can be eaten. Therefore, it is an ideal starting cheese.

You have probably also had that experience. When you think that you have bought a great cookbook, and you eagerly page through it. Only to find out that it contains only one single recipe you like, but which turns out to actually be a *really* great recipe. The cookbook with the recipe for onion soup is the perfect example of this for me :-) So now that I have written the recipe here on the site, I can finally get rid of that cookbook.
French Bread - the classic recipe
The white bread is a classic. No doubt about that. Although I have baked "No Knead/The world's best bread" for years, the French bread somehow still leaves the kitchen a lot faster when I bake that :-S So there must be something to it that other loaves simply does not have. I often use this simple and quick recipe that never fails, and does not require anything more than a conventional oven to make. It provides a finished bread in 2 hours.
Puff pastry baked with butter
Video Recipe - Homemade puff pastry is in a whole other class than the one you buy. There is no comparison. It is also relatively easy to do once you've tried it a few times.
 
If you have learned to cook meat from traditional cookbooks, or from your mother's recipes, then all you know to about it is wrong! You are using too high a temperature and too short a time. Most recipes for cooking meat dates back to when there was wooden stoves with only one setting. "Hot". Our modern stoves have made those recipes dated. The best way to roast meat and make it really good, is with a long roast, at a low temperature.
Fish Stock
Video Recipe - Fish stock is a simple but very useful recipe. I use it for fish soup, shellfish soup, mix in with a bechamel sauce for fish. Etc. Etc. In short: it is a really nice recipe to know.
Palmiers - pastry cookies shaped like palm fronds
Video Recipe - When using puff pastry you often have leftovers. Instead of throwing them out, you can make Palmiers. Small cute palm leaves. And yes. It's worth the effort. You could probably buy half a sack full in the supermarket for no money, but they will not be made ​​with butter.
