Potato Blinis - Small Potato Pancakes
Video Recipe - Boiled potatoes from the day before are fantastic to use in many dishes. Potato Blinis is one of those recipes that I use them for relatively often. Small thick pancakes that are very similar to the american breakfast pancakes. They are equally useful in the sweet and the savory kitchen.
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.
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.

Brownies
Brownies basically just is another variation of a pound cake. It has a bit more sugar. Some of the flour replaced with nuts, it has a bit less baking powder and added cocoa. But these small changes are enough to make the brownie a cake of its own. It is dense and heavy, more confetionery than cake. Sweet and strong. Lovely!
Roasted Red Bell Pepper Sauce
A powerful and tasty pepper sauce. It has a beautiful rich color and can be used for almost all dishes where you would otherwise use tomato sauce. I have two versions of the same recipe here. The basic sauce is fine in itself and has a stronger pepper flavor. The creamy is more luxurious and delicious.

Video Recipe - A tomato sauce can easily become too complicated. You can actually make one that is *very* simple, quick and extremely tasty with just a few ingredients. This simple recipe has certainly become my absolute favorite tomato sauce.
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.

Chocolate ganache is one of those simple recipes that you keep using all the time when you first know it. As a coating on cakes, like chocolate glaze if it is to be extra good, to cover the layers in a layer cake to prevent liquids from dissolving them. It can even be used as a simple chocolate sauce for ice cream.

It is difficult to make anything simpler than that. But it is considered a luxury delicatesse, so this kind of cake is mostly served at special occasions in Denmark. Christenings, weddings, confirmations, anniversaries and so on.
