Hello webwanderer, welcome to RecipeReminiscing. I’m TidiousTed and I run this blog. I’m not a chef or cook neither have I any formal training or education in catering or cooking. I’m just a graphic designer and web designer who likes to cook. A lot of this blog is based on my large collection of old cook books in Norwegian, Swedish, Danish and English. The rest of the post comes from old ads and roaming the net looking for interesting recipes. I’m interested in food history and soda and soft drink history too so there will be posts on this from time to time as well. I hope you’ll enjoy your stay here – Ted
A classic Norwegian dessert found in “Kremdager” (Cream Days) a free E-booklet published by tine.no
This unbeatable combination of port wine, chocolate and cream came into existence in 1906. That was the year when King Haakon and his queen were on their benediction tour through Norway. In Haugesund, a freshly prepared dessert was waiting for the royal couple – and this is how this dessert got its lovely name.
An exciting way to serve pork chops found on rema.no
There is little that can match pork chops for a lean dinner. Use high heat and do not cook the chops for too long – this way you will get a crispy outside crust, while retaining both taste and succulence in the lean meat.
A new twist on an old classic found in “Kremdager” (Cream Days) a free E-booklet published by tine.no
Pavlova cakes are named after the Russian ballet dancer Anna Pavlova. The Pavlova cake is flaky, crispy and melts in the mouth. A success at any party and a cake that’s easy to make. A temptation on any coffee table.
A recipe for a juicy wholemeal bread found on frukt.no
The grated carrots and oatmeal makes this delicious bread extra juicy. Great freshly baked for lunch at the weekend and in the lunch box during the week. Bake more than two when you are at it and put a few in the freezer.
Two delicious hot milk drinks found on “Varme Melkedrikker – Oppskrifter og Inspirasjon” (Varm milk drinks – Recipes and Inspirtion) a free e-booklet published by tine.no
When autumn starts to get cold, it is great to enjoy a warm and delicious milk drink. No matter if it is at home in front of the fireplace or on a chilly hike. Hot milk drinks warm both inside and out. Hot cocoa, chai tea, chocolate milk with coriander or mint. There are countless variations you can make and it’s just your imagination that sets the limits.
An exciting version of baked potatoes found on “Mett på en litt sunnere måte” (Hearty in a little healtier way) a free e-booklet published by tine.no
To make a simple version of chakalaka, start by heating oil in a saucepan and add chopped onions, garlic and green peppers. Fry the vegetables until the onion is transparent and then add curry and chili pepper and a can of beans in tomato sauce. Boil until everything is heated well. Mix some chakalaka with cottage cheese if you can’t get hold of the mixture ready for cooking. Serve the rest of the chakalaka with the baked potatoes and fried or grilled meat.
