Now just don´t be alarmed when I tell you to roll your raw chicken bits into corn flakes, just trust me aight?

Healthy pizza

In Big dishes, Chicken, Kid´s menu, Pizza on October 4, 2011 at 23:13

It´s Tuesday, or maybe Wednesday. You´re cravin´some pizza, but the weekend is just so so far away… And you really truly honest to God are trying to lead a healthier life (at least for a few weeks between summer and Christmas). So how about spelt bottom, lean chicken, good quality bacon, and cheese? Maybe some tomatoes for good measure?

Indian chicken soup

In Asian, Big dishes, Chicken, Soups on September 19, 2011 at 00:13

After a summer shorter than the lifespan of a fruitfly with bad genes, we (the lucky people of south-west Norway) are thrown head first into the rainy days of fall. I swear, the rain – it is nevereverending. We better get cheap electricity this winter!!

I have one advice: with very little effort (or culinary experience) you can cook a big pot of this Indian chicken soup that warms you up, from the inside out. The soup has just the right amount of heat to it (for us westerners), and it´s the type of soup that everyone will like. Noah (my 2-year old) ate it too! And you´ll have dinner for a couple of days. What´s better than leftovers when you don´t feel like cookin´?

Forgive me reader, for I have sinned, it has been 22 days since my last blogfession. You see, we have been on a internet free vacation and otherwise just sporting a busy summer. Yeah, excuses, excuses…

But here is hopefully a little inspiration for the grill. Succulent, tender, creamy, tangy yoghurt marinated chicken. Hot and sweet chili scampi. Rich and sweet BBQ pork. Crunchy, sweet vegetables…Go get fired up!

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.

Soulfood and then some…

In Chicken, Crabs, Fish and shellfish, Main courses, Pork, Side dishes on July 25, 2010 at 08:11

Finally (?) home and back to a somewhat normal state after a fabulous vacation in Florida, a stunning wedding in Leipzig and visits from great friends. I have gotten so used to having at least 7 persons around me at all times that I have some serious social withdrawal symptoms! I find myself calling, planning and booking every spare minute I have – quite mindlessly! Hard to find time for blogging in times like these. Blogging material, however, is bountiful! Stay tuned!

Chicken tortilla soup

In Big dishes, Chicken, Main courses, Soups on May 25, 2010 at 18:00

I think I´ve died and gone to soup-heaven. Oh my my my…

I once taste chicken tortilla soup at one of my friends house in the US, her mom had made it. That´s an experience I never forgot! I have been reading different soup recipes ever since, and tried to make chicken tortilla soup a few times. This is by far the best attempt, I also like that this is based on condensed store-bought stock, so it doesn´t call for hours and hours of cooking. It is easy, I swear!

I am begging you — please make this soup!
