Kjøttkaker med Brunsaus (Meatballs with Gravy) 23Sep2022

This is the second traditional dish from another country that my sweetheart and I decided to try. This dish is from Norway, which I chose because I have Norwegian ancestry. And come on… meatballs. First of all, I have to say that it was harder than I thought to find a traditional Norwegian dish thatContinue reading “Kjøttkaker med Brunsaus (Meatballs with Gravy) 23Sep2022”

Arroz de Marisco 10Sep2022

My sweetheart and I have decided to try something fun: we are going to make a dish once or twice a month that is traditional to another country.

I work 12-hour shifts plus intermittent fasting, so I need two meals. My lunch is usually easy to get,Continue reading “Italian Cauliflower Bake”
