Recipe with video - Pecan nuts was not something I was used to growing up in Denmark. I only first tasted them when visiting Danish friends working in USA a little over 20 years ago.

Isn't it enough to just bake potatoes once? well sure, if they just have to be tender, but if you also want them to taste great, rebaked potatoes just have a bit more oomph. You simply take a baked potato and bake it gratinated/au gratin. Which you can do close to when they have to be done. They can also be made a day in advance without loosing any flavor, so they are excellent for guests.

Slowly fermented bread. The best bread I have ever encountered is amusingly enough also one of the simplest to bake. It doesn't require kneading and only very little handling. Usually less than 10 minutes. The only drawback is that it has to ferment for a long time, so the process can be difficult to get into a working day.

A cold creamy sauce of fresh berries. A good side dish for ice cream, cakes and fruits. It is not cooked unlike a jam, so it retains its fresh taste.

I had to make cake for a school event for my oldest daughter Caroline. And could not bear to make that many cupcakes. I'm not always too thrilled about the usual "school cakes" we have here in Denmark. So I decided to make a cross between a triple chocolate muffins and a plain pound cake. As fate would have it, I only had drained Greek yogurt instead of the plain yogurt, That I used to have in the fridge. So I was a little skeptical. But it turned out to be one of my very best efforts. A spongy chocolate flavor that is not too sweet.
