Sweet Potato Gnocchi


Chances are, you have heard of and probably even enjoyed delicious Italian gnocchi. But have you every tried sweet coconut flavored gnocchi? These flavor-filled balls are safe for those on a gluten-free diet or a nightshade-free diet, but I think everyone will enjoy them.

Potetsalat


Norwegians have an unusually strong relationship with their potato salad. Recipes are strictly guarded by gas station attendants, grandmothers and potato farmers, kept locked in secret closets and never given to outsiders (even fiancés). Unfortunately for them, I am an expert at tasting recipes and recreating them.

Øyvind’s Oatmeal


We recently had some friends visiting from Norway and they introduced us to a way that Norwegians commonly eat oatmeal. It is quite different from the sweet, warm dish that Americans traditionally think of as oatmeal.

Pepperoni Primavera


Pasta primavera is one of my favorite dishes because it is an easy way of combing lots of different vegetables in the same dish. You can easily make this dish for a crowd, or for just two. Plus it is customizable, by changing only one ingredient you can make it either gluten free (with gluten free pasta), vegetarian (leave out the pepperoni), or dairy free (leave out the cheese).
