I visited my sister in Copenhagen this past weekend and among other things we went to Nationalmuseet (free entrance) to eat brunch and see their viking exhibition – which were both great. Their brunch is always good new nordic cooking with lots to choose from. The viking exhibition is part of their antiquity exhibition which in my opinion is a world-class exhibition. Especially the black treasure rooms are amazing. Well worth a visit. However their medieval exhibition is not worth your time. While we were there we of course had to visit the museum store and I brought “Mit vilde vikingekøkken” among other wonderful things.
For years by sister and I has hosted Halloween parties for a group of friends. I love to cook for people so I tend to bake party snacks. Among those are these scary spider muffins. They are muffins with raisins, nuts and apples made to look like spiders by adding licorice strings as legs. They only take half an hour to make and they are yummy. I like the mix of soft and crunchy bits that the apples and nut bits provide.
This is inspired by an Icelandic recipe that we got from my cousin’s dad. Icelandic crepes are so good and they work as waffles as well. It is a recipe I have been making since I was tall enough to reach up and flip the pancakes my self. Though I do not try to flip them in the air ever. They are really easy to make – the only time consuming part is the frying.
American Pancakes are really good, and easy to make! And great for brunch as well as breakfast. I make them when I want to spoil people around me. It takes about 20 minutes to bake the pancakes, so go wake the person you want to spoil up once the batter is ready and you cook them while they are in the shower – perfect.
These oatmeal cookies are the snacks I make when I have nothing in the house and a craving for sweet. Or if friends come over for tea and we need snacks. And they only take 20 minutes to make – start to finish!
You can add nuts, raisins or chocolate chips to the recipe, if you feel a bit more decadent.
