Bocatelli with Tomato Sauce Anchovy, Red Pepper and Capers

OK OK I understand you’re confused – That’s not Bocatelli it’s Camponelli because that’s what I had in the cupboard tonight. I am putting this recipe up because it is truly one on my top 10 favorites of all time. I can eat this once a week and I actually have to keep it down to once a month.

Tomato and Tuna Sauce with Olives

Tomato and Tuna Sauce with Olives

This is one of my favorite and easiest recipes that I know. I usually make this with Linguini or thicker Bucatini but it doesn’t matter that much which pasta you use it’s always good and spicy.

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.

Sausage and Apple Stuffing

Sausage and Apple Stuffing

Normally I make plain bread stuffing for chicken but for a turkey I think you want something that a bit special. You can leave this meatless as well by leaving out the apples. But try this it is really good. Make half the amount and use it for stuffing a chicken.

Salmon Cakes

This is a lovely recipe and the fish cakes can be made large or small depending on whether or not they will be served as canapes, or burger size for brunch, lunch or dinner. It will double very well and using left over poached salmon is perfect.

Shrimp with Linguini and Tomato

A favorite of mine, you can make the sauce and hour or so before without the shrimp and then heat the sauce and throw the shrimp in 4 or 5 minutes before the pasta is ready so that everything comes off the stove at the same time.

Meaty Chicken Soup

This has to be an all time winner. They don’t call it Jewish Penicillin for nothing. It’s hot, homey and completely satisfying. Best of all it takes almost no time and nothing terribly special to make it.

Mussels Marinara

A great recipe that can be arranged hours before your guests come. Great as an appetizer, brunch, or a dinner main course. Once your prep is done the whole thing takes about 15 minutes to cook. Everything can be done several hours before you need them if you cover and refrigerate everything. You can do the same with a salad and that leaves you plenty of time for other things.

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.

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.
