this recipe comes from my husband's grandmother. in swedish it is called svenska mandel skorpar or swedish toast. it resembles biscotti but has cardamon in it not chocolate nor anise. it is wonderful with tea and keeps well if stored in a dry container. the best flavor of cardamon is fresh--remove the outside pod, put the seeds into a plastic ziplock bag, put the sealed bag on cement floor, and pound with a hammer and you have ground cardamon. this is the method my mil taught me:) the original recipe says "a pinch of salt and soda" so that is why i have it here that way:) in step 5 you are supposed to use sugar lumps but not even sure if they sell that anymore. swedes use to drink a lot of coffee and fil loved his with lots of sugar. btw, this is the small batch size. lol!

a meal in itself! this traditional meat pie has been our easter morning breakfast for five generations. it is expensive to make, takes a lot of preparation but is worth every bite! in our family, this was more precious than gold and we all anxiously await
i haven't made this yet but just watched it being made on food network's 'sandra lee semi-homemade cooking' and it just looks too good to not post here for safe-keeping. you'll need 4 oven-proof mugs for this recipe.

a cute play on pigs in a blanket from cooking rocks! by rachael ray. my ds8 made these tonight as his weekly saturday dinner contribution. it was very good. we used honey only on most of these as my family is not a fan of mustard but i am and i enjoyed
my younger brother is a very picky eater. he does love the meat on the skewers at chinese buffets. my mom created a much healthier version for him at home. it was also great when my father was on his low carb diet.
a traditional greek vegetarian dish. delicious and easy. great to do when you have a bumper crop of zucchini on hand. olive oil adds a great flavour element to the dish, and also adds extra calories as briami is considered a 'main dish' here in greece.
