If you ever been home to me, you most likely has this once. Sooo easy to prepare and you can do many in one go and keep them in the freezer, as long you don’t bake them. Just take a prepare roll from the freezer when you know you will have someone at the door…

Confit tomatoes


This dish is so good and almost addictive! But not only that very easy to make as well. Unfortunately all my herbs died in the last storm we had here. Blasted with the salt and sand from the sea killed them. The rest of the garden went as well. A price one have to pay…

Tenderloin with lemon and tomatoes


Spanish food is quite simple and pure in the flavors. Here in Andalucia it is very much fried food, which is very good, but one can not live on it all the time. This meat is very healthy and fresh thanks to the lemon juice and skin they are in, before cooking. Easy to make…

Pollo Albondias – spanish meatballs


Meatballs are almost the tastiest available right? And it’s so fun to see how different countries make their own meatballs. I myself have made meatballs for many many years without problems.

Finally! Having yearned for a real good Paella, so I made one for dinner. It is one of my absolute favorite dishes. Thanks to my good friend, Minna, who had been so kind and sent lots of genuine saffron to me because she knows I use it often in the food, so it was possible…
