This christmas I decided to make most of my gifts. From Linen table cloths, knitted blankets to crotchet tops. So why not edible presents as well? I normally bake like crazy during December and give my friends cookies or cakes, but I have tendonitis, and i shouldnt be rolling stuff for some weeks.
So I decided to make Hot Chocolate as a present. You will be wondering: Hot Chocolate? it wouldnt be hot anymore. But I remembered I saw some brownie ingredients in a glass bottle as a present, so why not hot chocolate in a glass?
I am counting the days to our xmas vacation to Oslo! I cant wait to see all my friends and for them to meet Pepa. And because I cant wait, I am making some traditional Norwegian Food here in Berlin. One of my favorite dishes besides Fårikål is Flesk & Duppe. Soooo simple and combines some of my favorite things: Bacon, Creamy Sauce & Mash Veggies! It cannot be simpler and better! Normally it is used Kohlrabi but I had potatoes at home...any root vegetable will do the trick.
Because I come from a country that has unique vegetables and fruits, I make the mistake of thinking I cant find in europe many of my favorite ones. In Peru, mostly sundays, we have huge breakfast that turns into brunch and then into lunch. And one of my favorite dishes of those days are "Pastel de Acelga" or Chard Pie.
Here you can find all my fave recipes, from oldies to paleo and from family secrets to restaurant inspired gems.
