Boneless, marinated and grilled leg of lamb

Video Recipe - My favorite recipe for leg of lamb. The best taste and fairly quick preparation. What's not to love about it? The marinade and grilling results in a very good and strong flavor. The trick is that a the leg gets more surface when the bone is removed. And the surface is of course where most of the flavor is.

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

Boning and Butterflying a Leg Of Lamb
Video Recipe - Typically we fry a leg of lamb whole. Because it's the easiest to do. But a really good trick is to debone and butterfly it. You can cook it a lot faster then. The flattened shape also gives more room for a browned surface. You will also get more of that smoky barbecued flavor all oever the meat. Or you can roll them into a meat roll with marinade inside, so you get the marinade flavor onto all of the meat.
Potato Rosti - Swiss Potato Pancakes - Pommes Rösti
Video Recipe - Rösti are made with cooked potatoes, so I use it often as "leftovers" instead of the typical fried potatoes, hash and so on. But it is an accessory that everyone likes, and it has the advantage that you can add bacon, onion, cheese, apple or fresh herb. Which promises it over the other simple potato dishes.
Kvalitella - Because it rhymes with homemade Nutella
Video Recipe - My own recipe for a sweet hazel-nutty-chocolate'y spread. I don't think I have to tell you what it can be used for ...
Pan Fried Potatoes - Cottage Potatoes
Cottage potatoes are raw potatoes that are cooked in a frying pan. It's a good way to fry 2-4 servings of potatoes. However, it is not a good way to cook large quantities of potatoes. If they lie in layers on the pan, then the upper potatoes are cooked, and the bottom ones are in high risk of burning. There may be raw potatoes, hidden among the other ones and that can really make pan fried potatoes into a sad affair. Otherwise, you must use a really long frying time on large portions to be sure that all the potatoes are tender. At the risk of some getting burned. So here are my tips for making them.
Homemade popcorn
Video Recipe - One of the best snacks you can, well snack on, is also one of the easiest to make yourself. If you make them yourself, they are also much better than the ones you buy pre-popped. Warm and fresh. Maybe even made with clarified butter instead of oil. I get so sad when I see someone buying popcorn in bags from the supermarket when the homemade ones are twice as good. Maybe they are even 3.1415 times better !? So make them yourself ... right? Please!

Beef Burgundy - Boeuf Bourguignon
Video Recipe - A real autumn and winter classic. You have to start early, but most of the time spent is only simmering, and it takes care of itself. A stew is good basic recipe to have in your arsenal for all those "cheap" beef cuts. It may look complicated, and has quite a list of ingredients, but you use a lot of classic techniques, so this is one of those dishes you become a better cook by, and it is easy to vary.

Bread Baking Technique #4 - The 12 Stages In The Life of Any Bread

But once you know the 12 stages, and the classification of bread, you will find it less confusing to read the directions in bread recipes. If you will need to read the directions at all.
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.
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.
 
When you want to be extra sinful in the morning. Or just have something crunchy on your homemade yogurt, or fruit salad, this homemade crunchy breakfast muesli is top notch.

Boxed Chorizo
When I cook fried vegetables, make Spanish omelettes, hash from leftovers, etc. I love to add small pieces of chorizo to them. It provides an incredible amount of flavor with small amounts of meat. But chorizo is a very expensive sausage to use in frying. Therefore it is a good candidate for making your own spicy chorizo stuffing, that you can just put into a box in the fridge and use as needed.
Lamb kleftiko - "Braised Leg of Lamb"
Lamb kleftiko (lamb kleptomaniac) Is an ancient Greek dish. It is usually the one we think of as "roast leg of lamb." Rumor has it that it was made by thieving greek bandits by digging a stolen lamb into a hole in the ground filled with red-hot stones. The lamb was then covered up and they could pick up the roasted meat day. The owner of the lamb would not be able to smell it cooking due to the burial, and you the thieves would get away with it.
French Chocolate macaroons with chocolate cream

They are not as difficult to bake as they might seem, and they are a great addition on any coffee table. Or as an accompaniment to a dessert. Ice, panna cotta etc. My personal favorite is this version with chocolate.
