Lemon Meringue Pie

This is a classic dessert and it is easy to understand why: deliciously sweet and sour lemon curd inside a flaky pie crust topped with soft, airy meringue. Yum!

Lemon Delicious Pudding

This self-saucing pudding was introduced to me when I was an exchange student in Australia. I prefer baking it in a larger dish, which results in more sauce at the bottom, then serve it with vanilla ice cream. For formal occasions I use individual ramekins instead.

Mexican Fiesta

In Southern California we are spoiled with great Mexican food, so lets start with the basics in a delicious taco buffet.

Corn Tortillas

Making your own tortillas tastes so much better than the plastic wrapped you find in the store. At first it may feel a little tricky to transfer the flattened dough to the griddle but it is quite easy once you get a hang of it.

Adobada (Marinated Pork)

This is our absolute favorite when it comes to Mexican fast food! Great in tacos, burritos and on top of fries or rice. Flavorful without being spicy, I am confident it will become your favorite, too!

Mexican Spice Mix / Taco Seasoning

In Sweden we use “tacokrydda” not only to flavor ground beef for tacos, but also for “tacopaj” (Mexican inspired quiche). It is great to have on hand and can be used when making chili, tex mex dip and much more.

Pico de Gallo

Means “rooster’s beak” in Spanish, assumedly because people pinched it between thumb and forefinger when eating. It is a fresh, crude salsa used as a topping or component for many Mexican dishes.
