Gingersnap Spice Coconut Peaks (Dipped in Chocolate)

a few months ago

Classic gingersnap spices cinnamon, cardamom, ginger and cloves bring a holiday twist to Swedish “kokostoppar” (coconut peaks). In the Scandinavian kitchen (and in my Pacific Northwest kitchen for that matter) the month of December should be full of spices. Spices are, after all, the antidote to dark and gray weather. They’re the pick-me-up of the winter kitchen. Fortunately, December […]

Kale, Carrot and Apple Salad with Carrot Top Pesto Dressing

a few months ago

Every time I see carrots without their deep green tops, I wonder where they ended up. There’s a sliver of hope that they were composted, but I fear that they were instead destined for the trash can.

Swedish Strawberry Cake with Cardamom

a few months ago

Summer solstice marks the longest day of the year, and that’s cause for celebration. This week is one of sunshine stretching into the evening, carpets of wildflowers in the midst of grassy fields, bare feet and picnic blankets. For me, it marks the celebration of Swedish midsommar. The traditional midsommar spread of food is one of my […]
