When sick.. Make food!

Hell everyone!

So I was sick during Friday and the weekend and I am still not 100% well but at least I managed to get to work today...
But was super bored during the weekend and when I was home and had no real energy to do stuff so I cooked a bit...

Pumpkin Biscuits!

2 cups flour
2 tbsp baking powder, maybe I should've used baking soda to get more of a rise...
1 tbsp salt
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup unsalted butter, cubed.
1 tsp pumpkin spice.

Put oven to 200 Celsius.
Mix dry ingredients well and mix in butter just, don't overwork it!
Mix in puree, just
Mix in buttermilk just.
Put dough onto a baking tray and flatten it and then with a glass or something round make your biscuits.
Put into oven for 20-25 minutes and let biscuits rest for 5 minutes after and serve with honey, maple syrup, butter, cream cheese or whatever.

Add honey to the pumpkin puree for a sweeter biscuit! :)

Was delicious and the smell was awesome!

Hot Tomato soup

Dice one onion finely and fry it up with 1 tsp crushed garlic and 1 tsp crushed ginger and some oil.
When onion is soft add 1 tbsp cumin and fry for 1 minute.
Then add 1 can whole tomatoes that you have blended in the mixer and about 300 ml of chicken broth.
Add chili powder/Tabasco/hot sauce to taste as well as salt if needed.

Blend in a mixer and serve, perfect when sick! :)


Made Carnitas with Cramby's recipe from his new book "Taco Loco" and both me and Sara agree that it was fucking magical... We ate 1.2 kg in 2 days...
Will definitely be making again, and it was so easy. just takes some time in the oven (3-4 hours).

We also made mango Salsa that complimented the salty meat really well with its sweet fresh flavor, as well as pickled red onion with chilies. I love mexican and I love cooking it and have done a lot of different authentic recipes. But I think this was by far my favorite so far...

I mean look at the colors! mmmmm!

I wont be posting the recipe here, go buy his books instead! They are really really good!


My birthday was a few weeks ago and we made apple pie, nontraditional as cake from Roy Fares book "United States of Cakes".
So won't be posting that recipe either but his book is really good and has a lot of different sweets from the us in it. Even if his writing is a bit bland and recipes are not easily followed at times if you look away from the page.

Best apple pie ever though actually..
