Everyday life of a foodie


Easy cooking

Pasta with Bacon and Gorgonzola 

This was a favourite of mine at Uni but I haven’t thought of it for years! I have had a few trips down memory lane lately and gone through loads of old photos from Uni and I guess the recipe just came back to me – I was delighted to re-establish the acquaintance!

Salmon with Feta Cheese and Sundried Tomatoes 

We had some sundried tomatoes leftover from last week so I thought I’d do this really tasty and easy salmon dish. Oh, you’re wondering where the veg is? Well, yeah, I forgot the lovely broccoli in the fridge… Ah well!

The recipe recommends a quinoa salad with humus but I’ve made them with sweet potato fries and tzatziki and it’s very, very nice!

Crayfish Party (Kräftskiva)

August is crayfish season in Sweden and we celebrate by throwing a party! Why not!? What better way to eat crayfish other than wearing silly hats and bibs and decorating your flat with moon men lamps and paper made crayfish decorations?

Friday night Tacos is a modern classic in Sweden. Some marketing genius came up with the term Fredagsmys (litteraly translated as cosy Friday, but it means staying in on a Friday and be with your loved ones) and Tacos has become a major part of that.
