Suitable for all seasons

Lovely patties, perfect as a light lunch or a Sunday breakfast

Raisin Patties

I often make a LOT of these in one go and then freeze. I use two pans at once so that I can make two or three patties at once.

Rhubarb Jam...so good with lots of stuff

Rhubarb Jam

I love rhubarb jam, I use it on waffles, on yoghurt, on toast and wherever I can because it is very, very good for you.

Often filled with whipped cream and jam and served as "Cream Pancakes" in Icelan

Pancakes

Traditionally in Iceland, whenever there is a birthday party, a funeral, a graduation or any other social gathering, Icelandic women (and nowadays men as well) make pancakes and they make a lot as usually there is a huge stack which vanishes at lightning speed.

Very Icelandic and often made out of leftover porridge and fresh blueberries in

Blueberry Patties

Every mum and granny (and some dads and granddads) know how to make patties made out of leftover porridge or rice pudding. They are called "lummur" in Icelandic.

Lovely little mini pies which are packed with protein, vitamins and healthy fats

Mini Fruit Pies with Carob and Cashew Frosting

I love bananas and cashews mixed together, it is such a creamy blend and I often use it as a frosting for cakes as well as in smoothies and ice creams.

Baked fruits are lovely as they become even sweeter

A Selection of Baked Fruits with Ice Cream

I quite like warm, ripe fruits. I first had this dessert after dinner one time at my brother's place. Smári, my youngest brother is a very good cook and so is his wife Anna Stína.

My favourite power bars

Flap Jack (Power Bar)

I love home made muesli bars (flap jacks) as much as I detest the junk you can find in some stores. Often this junk is labelled ("energy bars", "power bars" or something equally wrong).

A healthy mousse packed with vitamins and goodness

Date and Banana Mousse

I don't normally eat mousse since it often contains raw eggs (which I am not fond of) and/or gelatin which I would never, ever put into my mouth.

A lovely dish which I serve often

Zanzibar Beans with Sweet Potatoes in Coconut Sauce

We visited Zanzibar in September 2007 and it was an absolutely lovely visit.

A very colourful combination, packed with vitamins and goodness

Sweet Potatoes in Nut and Ginger Sauce

This is a very colourful and a very healthy combination.
