Roasted Butternut Squash Soup  Dansk udgave  First time I encountered a butternut squash was after moving to the US.  Every fall I would see piles of this oddly shaped beige vegetable in the  grocery store. They were hard like a pumpkin, but didn't look like the  pumpkins I knew from back home. Pumpkin was not something we cooked with in  Denmark, at least not in my family. My mom had made pumpkin jam and sugar  pickled pumpkin, but the recipes is long gone.  I got to taste a butternut…

Baked salmon with avocado hollandaise.  Avocado hollandaise is an easier and healthier version of the real  hollandaise sauce. This is a no anxiety sauce. No fear of curdling the egg  yolks, no fear of separation (elmulsion break), just blend, season and  serve. It's that easy.  My favorite breakfast has been eggs Benedict. Before we moved to  California, I didn't even know it existed. Sadly Eggs Benedict is not  particular healthy, but by substituting the buttery hollandaise with this…

Høns i Asparges - Chicken & Asparagus in tartlets  Høns in asparges or Creamed chicken and asparagus in tartlets is an old  Danish classic dish. Normally it will be served as a part of the  traditional christmas and easter lunches. For sure this is old school  Danish food, called mormor-mad (Grandmother food). And mormor-mad is  peasant food, and not on the healthy side. But if you loose the tartlets  and serve the dish with boiled potatoes, boiled carrots and some bread, you  can have a…

Scallops with Elderflower Syrup  The smell of elderflower is the smell of summer. My mom always made her own  elderflower syrup. We would go out and pick the flowers when they first  start blooming. Mixing the flowers with a large amount of  sugar, lemons, citric acid and hot water. After infusing the water for a  few days, you would have the best sweet elderflower syrup, the taste of  summer. During the summer we would get a splash of syrup in our water, just  enough to infuse the water…

Rhubarb Lemonade  Rhubarb is the taste of late spring and summer in my world. I always buy  rhubarb at the grocery store when they are in season. If I don’t have to  use them right away, I wash and cut them up and freezes them, or I'll make  rhubarb lemonade.   Rhubarb lemonade is a refreshing drink on a hot summer day. The color is  bright, pink and very girly. To make a grownup drink add an splash of  vodka, tequila or sparkling wine.  Ingredients:     * 300 g rhubarb     * 225 g sugar…

Pork Roullade with Prunes  My mom loved this kind of pork roulade called rullesteg (rolled roast) in  Danish. It might have been the prunes that made it special for her. And I  have to agree with her, the prunes gives this roast a sweetness that pairs  well with the pork and the saltiness.  Don't get me started about the gravy. Danes are a meat, potato and brown  gravy kinda people. The sauce or gravy should be spooned over the potatoes  and not just used as a small amount of dipping sauce…
