Christmas is just around the corner. Every country, town and family have their own traditions. In Denmark we have many traditions and we do seem to agree on what cookies we like to eat for Christmas. Brunkager, klejner and vaniljekranse are the most popular cookies for Christmas. These are my recipes for the most popular Danish Christmas cookies.
I recently covered a German Christmas tradition, but this time the time has come to my native Denmark.
We have many different cookies we make for Christmas, but these three: brunkager, klejner and vanilljekranse are the most popular and beloved ones.
It’s the month of Christmas and it’s cold and dark outside. You sit inside in your cozy, warm house with the lights on and the candles lit. The kettle is on for your favorite cup of tea or a nice fragrant cup of coffee. You cut a piece of stollen and life is good. This is my recipe for sourdough stollen.
Stollen is a German Christmas treat also known as Christstollen or Weihnachtsstollen. It’s gained popularity outside of the German speaking countries over the last 30 years, especially in the United Kingdom.
Winter is here! It’s cold outside and when you get home after a long day, you want something hot, hearty and something to stick to your bones. Sometime that gives you back your energy and helps you through the cold months. This is my recipe for Hungarian Goulash.
While Goulash is more of a soup in Hungary, I like mine a bit more thick. Please use the recipe as you see fit.
Winter is here! It’s time for those bubble-all-day hearty dishes. How do you eat them? Well, regularly from a bowl, but I propose another way: out of a bread that you will be using as a bowl. This is my recipe for sourdough bread bowls.
You walk through your local green grocers and it’s full of produce. There are so many different things to choose from. There are all these squashes and zucchinis and they look gorgeous, but what do you use them for? Well, I have an idea. This is my recipe for sourdough zucchini bread.
