Grilled Saddle of lamb (Double Loin)

Grilled Saddle of lamb (Double Loin)

Video Recipe - Roast lamb in the oven, or grilled in Weber grill. It is not very difficult to roast a whole lamb. Neither the oven or grill. In turn, arouses the always enthusiastic to wear such a large piece of meat on the table and cut it up there.

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.
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.

Bread Baking Technique #6 - The Rise of The Bread, or Fermentation As It Is Known
The fermentation stage of the dough is the most important stage when making a good bread. But here are many different ways to do it right. Depending on what you want to achieve. There are also some tricks that can make you a better baker in general, when you know them.
 
I looove potato pancakes, but for many years I have found it difficult to be completely happy with the ones I made. Either they were burned on the outside, or they were raw on the inside. But I finally found a trick that was necessary for complete success. every time.
 
Veal shank is the same piece of meat that is used for Osso Buco, but a slow braising with a sweet port wine and a good stock puts that meat into a completely different class. It is also a dish that practically cannot fail. If you like meat that is so tender that it falls apart when eating, and has a dark strong beef flavor. Then this is just the ticket. The long list of ingredients can look somewhat daunting, but the basic principle is to just brown the meat and the vegetables, and then braise / let it simmer it in some wine.
 
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.
 
"This is it. you hereby get my recipe for gingerbread biscuits. The recipe is over a 100 years old." My sister in law announced one day. I was a bit shell shocked. It had taken me almost all of those 100 years to pry the recipe from her:-S But now that I have it, I am happy to share this recipe. it is awesome!
Carrot cake with cream cheese frosting
I used to think that carrot cake was an abomination. A dry and boring things that women ate while feeling guilty. But Karin's recipe is not at all healthy, and it does not taste so either. It tastes juuuust right. So I thank her for the recipe.
Homemade okara granola - sweet muesli with soy beans
When making soy milk there is a residue called "okara". If you roast it golden, it tastes like roasted almonds. It is therefore particularly suitable for a homemade "granola". And you, and the kids, will love it. It will not be a we-have-duty-to-eat-leftovers kind of thing, but a really good granola.
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.

Lemon Moon - Citrus Moon - Danish "Citronmåne"
In the US it is folklore that the cops eat doughnuts. In Denmark we have the same thing with this cake. The lemon moon. It is typical a factory made cake. But it is much better when it is homemade. Like this.
