Swedish Kladdkaka

Kladdkaka – Is the Swedish name for this delicious chocolate mud cake. Kladdig means sticky/gooey, like wet mud, so I’m assuming this cake should look like a heap of dirt from you back yard but I guarantee you it doesn’t taste like it! This delicious, rich and creamy chocolate cake is so easy to make and goes great with whipped cream or ice cream.

Scottish Shortbread

Several months ago, a friend asked me if I’d ever made Shortbread and wanted a good recipe for it.  I had to answer NO!  This is because I only ever eat Shortbread at Christmas and just buy it, why should I make it?  But with the Scottish referendum going on this week, I gave it a try. I experimented with a recipe I found but didn’t like it; it wasn’t buttery or light enough.  So I contacted my Scottish friend, Andrew and he came to the rescue!

My neighbor and dear friend, Sandi, is an exceptional cook, whenever I pop in to see her she’s always cooking or has just finished making something incredible, even my kids loved it when I brought some of her food home.  Her daughter happened to inherit her skills and has a very successful blog, you may have heard of it, chef-in-training, it’s the place to visit for the best recipes ever – including her Nutella Fruit Dip.  It’s a hit at parties that’s for sure – and I’m speaking from experience.

Italian Vegetable Soup

The weather is cooling down and autumn is here, I love this time of year….and there’s nothing better than a nice hot bowl of homemade soup and delicious warm bread to help welcome the new season into our hearts and homes. The cool crispy air seems to invite all types of cooking and baking, and I’m very excited to learn how different countries in Europe celebrate autumn in their kitchens.
