Ajvar sauce

Ajvar sauce

I can’t really tell if the recipes published on the newspaper Helsingin Sanomat every Thursday are exceptionally good, and worth testing, or is it simply because of me taking my time to read the paper every time. Probably the latter; world is full of delicious foods and recipes, but you don’t catch them the same way as you do when reading the paper. Even when searching recipes online, you need to know beforehand what you’re looking for. Continue reading “Ajvar sauce”

Lambkin roast with “French fries” made of Halloumi

Lambkin roast with “French fries” made of Halloumi

Once again I’ve been busy with the food pages published every Thursday in Helsingin Sanomat. As said already before I’m not quite sure if the recipes in this newspaper are better than those published in other ones, or if it is simply an easy approach since my husband usually reads Helsingin Sanomat from cover to cover. When he has finished the paper he always brings me the food pages, and more often than not asks whether we could try one of the recipes because it seems so delicious.

At first I thought that I would never try anything like this again, but nothing ventured, nothing gained as the saying goes. Continue reading “Rosemary potatoes”

Very tasty potato salad

In Finland Frankfurters with potato salad have belonged to New Year’s celebration for quite a long time – if not as a main meal but more like a late night dish when the party continues into the small hours of the night. Formerly Frankfurters used to be a special and expensive delicacy of the upper class people and it mostly belonged to two  festive occasions: New Year and the 1st of May.

Romanesco cauliflower baked in cream sauce

Romanesco cauliflower baked in cream sauce

When I some time ago added a recipe for Brussels sprouts in creamy sauce to my English site, I wrote that it was even better than delicious. And indeed it was! But now I’m forced to say that Romanesco cauliflower prepared in a similar way seems to be even better if ever possible. Without further ado I can just say that this dish is really worth trying.

This casserole suits really well with all kind of meat, but it doesn’t necessarily need anything to serve on the side. Continue reading “Romanesco cauliflower baked in cream sauce”
