GOOD FRIDAY WITH FRIENDS

DAILY LIFE

Yesterday we went to our friends cabin and had a wonderful evening with some Easter celebration and a super nice dinner. It’s so nice to get away a bit and just chill with friends. We actually did this last Easter as well so it has become some sort of a tradition. So cozy. We stayed there for one night and are now back home in Reykjavik.

At the moment I’m preparing another dinner at our place with my bf’s sisters coming over. It will just be a chilled Saturday with delicious food. Perfect. :)

It feels so good to finally be home in my hometown Borås in Sweden. So nice to meet family and friends, been too long since I’ve been here.

Yesterday I met some friends and had a wonderful dinner at Viskans Vinbar had some delicious oysters and butter fried sole fish, so yummy!! After that we went to Vinci for some drinks, one of my favorite lounge places in Borås.

I’m staying here for 2 weeks and I don’t have anything planned really. Just gonna take the days as they come and enjoy. :)

GIRLS SATURDAY DINNER

DAILY LIFEJEN'S DELICIOUS LIFE

 

Yesterday we had a real kind of girls day. We started the day with some gym and then some relaxing spa time, so nice! At the evening we went to my place and I had made dinner to us all, never cooked for so many before at the same time but everything went very well and the girls loved the food, so that was perfect!! I served a creamy potato gratin with a super tender beef filé and red wine sauce, topped with bacon and asparagus. For dessert I made a chocolate cake topped with chocolate mousse, so yummy!

Such a cozy day and a wonderful evening <3

NEW YEARS EVE 

DAILY LIFE

 

Had a great time on New years eve! It was a very easy one, and that was nice. Had a wonderful dinner with S family and then went to friends and had some wine before heading back home.

At the moment I’m packing and preparing for the Thailand trip, we are flying very early  tomorrow morning, first to Stockholm then Bangkok and then to the north of Thailand, Chiang Mai. So 3 flights, it will be a long trip. I’m so excited. It’s gonna be so nice with vacation with my <3.

We are staying in Chiang Mai for 5 days and then heading to Krabi for 3 days, after that we’re going to a very small Island called Ko Lipe. And at the end we are staying in Bangkok for a few days. So we’re gonna be away for totally 3 weeks.

As I have a new camera I’m so excited to use it so hopefully you will see a lot of pictures from the trip.

 

Love

I’m happy to announce that I’m one of Vin & Matguidens new profiles alongside Swedish top and celebrity chefs! It’s a big food site in Sweden and they contacted me a few weeks ago and really wanted me to join them, and of course I said yes! One of my favorite chef and tv chef is with them too, Per Morberg. Maybe now I will get invited to his show for some dinner ;) -I wish-

As Vin & Matguiden is a Swedish site I will write my recipes in Swedish but I will still post my recipes here in English. So you wont miss out on my delicious food. I really looking forward to some more cooking and baking now. Stay tuned.

Don’t forget to follow my food Instagram there I’ll post my food pictures, (link down below @cookitwithjen). And I also need some help with suggestions on a new name for my food IG. Wanted to have “Jenni Bean” haha, but that was buzy. So hard to find a nice and funny name for my food page. Please help me.

OUR BABYSHOWER FOR LINNEA

DAILY LIFEJEN'S DELICIOUS LIFE

We had this beautiful babyshower for our Linnea this Sunday. It turned out perfect, as we wanted it to be! She deserve the best babyshower. <3

It was funny to plan all this and we really didn’t want Linnea to get suspicious at all and we succeeded! Linnea got so surprised!

Down below I will show you what we had on our food and cake table and the some recipes as well. :)

Pecan and caramel pie with whipped cream

Pie crusts:
3 dl flour
150 grams butter
0.5 tsp salt
0.5 dl sugar
2 tbsp water

Filling:
125 g butter
2 tbsp plain flour
3 dl light syrup
1 1/2 dl sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
150 g of pecans, chopped

Do this:
1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees
2. Boil butter, syrup, sugar, flour and salt in a saucepan. Let it simmer for a few minutes, stir all the time. Remove from the heat and let cool.
3. Mix together all the ingredients for the pie crust and press into a mold evenly. Use a fork to make some small holes in the middle of the pie crust. Bake for about 5-10 minutes!
4. Add the chopped pecans, vanilla sugar and lightly beaten eggs in the caramel mixture.
5. Pour the filling into the pie shell and bake for about 30-40 minutes at 175 degrees. If you notice that the edges start to get brown really quick you can use aluminum foil and just put it over the pie so it wont get burned.
6. Serve with some whipped cream and dust with some cacao powder.

I did these delicious “cake pops”, typical babyshower thing right. ;) but I didn’t use mashed cake like the original. I did chocolate balls and just covered it with melted chocolate and toppings. Chocolate balls is a big favorite in Sweden. No one doesn’t love Chocolate balls, and you can find it in every coffee shop in Sweden.

Chocolate balls “Choklad bollar”

YOU NEED: 

6 dl rolled oats
2 dl granulated sugar
1 tbsp vanilla sugar
4-5 tbsp cacao
200g butter, room temp
4 tbsp cold strong coffee

Dark chocolate
pops sticks
Toppings (I had coconut flakes, chopped hazelnuts and sprinkles)

1. Mix ALL ingredients in a bowl with your hands and let it chill a a little in the fridge before you shape the balls (10min).
2. Shape into balls and place on a plate.
3. Melt the chocolate over low heat in a water bath (in a bowl over boiling water).
4. Dip the top of the sticks into the melted chocolate and then press them into the ball. Then you’re guaranteed it will stick.
5. Then you need to let them chill in the fridge again, approx 20 min. The melted chocolate can just be heated a little bit again before you will dip and cover the chocolate balls.
6. One at a time, dip one ball and cover it with the melted chocolate and then add the chosen topping. Store them in the fridge. :)

I made two different kind of sandwiches. One with sallad, roast beef, potato sallad and roasted onion. On the other one I had mashed avocado and boiled egg, mayonnaise and some parsley as garnish on both. :)

I wanted first to have Mimosas for drinks. It’s champagne and orange juice, a typical brunch drink but it was very hard to find alcohol free champagne here in Iceland. Could just find strawberry “champagne” so I just skipped the orange juice. But it wasn’t that bad. :)
