Double or triple this recipe and it’s great to serve with turkey or baked ham and goes terrifically with Swedish Christmas ham.

Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan

Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan

I wouldn’t say that this is a recipe at all. It’s so simple but tasty and gives you another idea for asparagus. You can roast them without the Parmesan and serve them with a vinaigrette.

New Potatoes Sauteed with Butter, Parsley & Spring Onions

New Potatoes Sauteed with Butter, Parsley & Spring Onions

This is a nice alternative to plain steamed new potatoes. Although fantastic as they are try this for a change with my recipe for Parmesan Crusted Chicken Breasts. Here in the Nordic countries potatoes are almost a religion. Small potatoes are available all year around.

Red Peppers Pan Roasted with Balsamic Vinegar

Red Peppers Pan Roasted with Balsamic Vinegar

This is one of my favorite ways and types of red peppers recipes. The type of pepper is Palermo instead of Bell pepper. Palermo peppers are long and thin walled, they contain almost no seeds at all. They don’t need to be roasted and then peeled like Bell peppers.

A Quick Note

I wanted to take a minute to say that I do try and weigh as many of the ingredients as I can. I think it helps make recipe results more consistent. Of course professional bakers even measure liquids by weight. I don't mind pulling out my little digital scale when I need to.

Canapes


I don't have a many canapes here. The ones I share are super quick, very tasty and most of all tasty. Your guests will appreciate the effort.
