Awesome Zucchini & Corn Fritters

I’ve posted a previous recipe of zucchini and corn fritters over a year ago, but a lot has happened in my kitchen in 12 months time, so I thought it was time to share an updated version of this recipe I’ve just recently tried, which just happens to be gluten and dairy free…. and dare…

Roast Beetroot and Dill Salad

Have I mentioned that one of my favourite herbs is dill?  I don’t think I use it enough in recipes in proportion to just how much I love it.  Like saffron, it evokes memories of Sweden and my gorgeous Swedish friends and family.  In particular the inspiration for this dish came from a gorgeous Canadian…

Special Herbs and Spices in My Kitchen

For me learning to cook with herbs and spices is something that has come only with experience in the kitchen.  I started out very quietly and uncertain of what I was doing, where now I’m quite happy to be putting handfuls of this and handfuls of that in if I think it will suit the…

7 Swedish Flavours that I’ve Fallen in Love With

Sweden is probably not really known for its food.  It’s beautiful people, its tennis players, and its cars; yes… food not so much.  But for me some of my fondest memories of Sweden are around food and every time I recreate the dish it evokes great moments from my time spent in this Nordic country….

Zucchini & Sweet Corn Fritters

I love making these, one because its a favourite in my house, two because it brings back memories of zuchini fritters from my childhood, and finally, because I love the sweet bursts of corn that contrast with the smoothness of the zucchini and the crunchiness of the outside. These are great served with salad on…

Leah’s Version of Asian Coleslaw

Its summer in Australia, and to me that means salads.  Crisp fresh vegetables, salad leaves and lots of them.  The thing is that you very quickly get bored with making the same three options and so I find myself looking for inspiration continuously.  Lucky me, I didn’t have to go too far for this idea. …
