Sh*t happens

In Cakes and pies, Chocolate, Sweets on September 22, 2010 at 22:03

For those of you (if any!) that are under the impression that my life is all smooth sailin´and that Karen has full control, here is hard, cold proof (or very hot proof in this particular case) that this is far from the truth!

I found this great recipe for a chocolate cobbler a few weeks ago, and have just been waiting for the right time to take it for a test run…  Read the rest of this entry »

Chicken noodle soup

In Big dishes, Chicken, Kid´s menu, Main courses, Soups on September 16, 2010 at 21:01

I woke up at 2 am one of these nights, and no, not to the sound of my baby crying. I woke up to the sound of autumn… POURING down ouside! It still rained dogs and cats when I got up in the morning, and still when I looked out the windows at work, and still when we drove home from work… And it was a meager 12 degrees Celsius (53 F) outside. So unfair! It is barely September! *POUT* One thing to do, and one thing only: Eat chicken noodle soup! Only we have to make it first. And maybe curl up on the sofa with a good book and a blanket… Ok, here we go.

Fårikål (lamb in cabbage stew)

In Big dishes, Kid´s menu, Lamb, Main courses, Stew on September 14, 2010 at 22:41

´Tis the season! No, not Christmas… I am talking lamb season! And lamb season in Norway means that it is time for fårikål (lamb in cabbage stew); Norway´s national dish! Norwegian lambs spend all summer running and jumping around in the Norwegian mountains, free as a bird. They eat all kinds of good stuff; heather, blueberries (probably… at least I would if I was running around in the mountains) etc. and the result is lamb packed with flavour. And fårikål is indeed flavourful and also fall off the bones-tender … oh happy joy joy!

This awesome picture (Lomo fish eye shot) is generously lend to me from Irene. Thanks again Irene, your pictures rock!

Chocolate chip cookies

In Chocolate chip cookies, Cookies, Kid´s menu, Sweets on September 7, 2010 at 22:16

Behold and be prepared! I am about to share with you Phoebe´s grandmother´s “secret” chocolate chip cookie recipe… Now, I made quite a few cookies and even though I gave some to my dear neighbors, I thought they would last more than one day. But no, no such luck. They were goners in no time!
