Home Fries - Brased Potatoes - Bratkartoffeln

Home Fries - Brased Potatoes - Bratkartoffeln

Video Recipe - I have been eating home fries since I was a kid. We had it the traditional "Danish style" with just potatoes, fat for frying, salt and pepper. For the last few years though, I have acquired a taste for the German version "Bratkartoffeln" with onion and bacon.

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

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.

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.
Hollandaise sauce
Video Recipe - One of the most classic sauces. Often used for fish and chicken. It ss always a hit. And as it is made ​​almost entirely of butter the consistency never fails. It can be a little tricky until you get the hang of it, but when you have learned to make it, it is one of the quickest and easiest sauces to make at all.
Bouquet Garni
It is a part of many recipes, but it is rarely described in depth just exactly what a "bouquet" is. Bouquet garni means "a bundle of herbs". There may be several different kinds of herbs in it. The classical version consist only of parsley, thyme and bay leaves. The typical mistake is to make it too small with to few herbs.
Shortbread - English/Scottish cookies
Shortbread is a funny cookie. It is literally the most simple cake recipe there is! Only 3 ingredients. I do not think you can make a recipe more simple than that and then get something edible out of it, that can be called a cake. For me, this is the "Ground Zero" of the cakes. Where it all starts. All other cakes are variations of it. Well ok. That is perhaps not the entirely right, but it only takes 5 minutes to bake, and can be eaten with jam or other sweet spreads.
Beignet batter / tempura with fried meat, onion and other vegetables
Deep-fried vegetables is a simple, cheap and very nice tasting dish. It is made with a beignet dough. Beignet dough is at the same time also very suitable for double crumbing. It holds on really well to the breadcrumbs. Tempura is the Japanese name for a beignet dough. In principle beignet is just a little thicker pancake batter.
Custard - Pastry cream - Cake cream
Video Recipe - Pastry cream , or cake cream, is one of the most flexible basic recipes. But it really is just a custard with a little wheat- or corn-flour in it, but hey, that it is super nice too :-D
Bread Baking Technique #9 - Baking Stones, Pizza Stones and Steam In The Oven
In general, home ovens have a lot of problems. Most of them can be addressed with a few tricks though. One of the best tricks is using a baking stone. You can buy baking stone in many places, but they are rarely optimal. So I made up some tricks myself and now I can bake bread with the best.
Homemade soy milk
Video Recipe - Soy milk is a little difficult to make, but it's fun, and it's good for many things. Some vegetarian argue that you can use it instead of milk. That's not quite true. But you can use it in many places instead of milk. It is also the first step towards Tofu, which is a usefull ingredient in cooking.
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.
Fake soup stock inspired by miso
I love soup and a good stock/broth, and do not mind spending hours to make it. But it's not always that I have the time or the ingredients in day to day life. It is also not always necessary. Sometimes you just need a tasty stock for the daily food. This is a miso inspired "fake stock".
