Today my mother and older brother came over for lunch. I wanted to make something that was fairly light and not too dinner-y, so I decided on the following:
-- Tomato Tartines
-- Mini Broccoli-Spinach Quiche
-- Fresh Summer Salad w/ Apples & Cranberries
-- Baked Oatmeal
In Sweden we have "fika" several times throughout the day. This is basically a coffee break which includes coffee or tea and pastries or small cookies. When I can't be in Sweden, I try to bring Sweden to me.
This is what I made for fika/dessert:
Chokladsnitt (biscotti-type chocolate cookies)
Hallongrottor (sugar cookie type dough with dollops of raspberry jam)
Bullar (Swedish cinnamon buns)
If you would like any of the recipes, do not hesitate to ask.
Please note: the recipes I have for the desserts use the metric system.
