Grilled Steak with Peanut Sauce

This recipe began when Scott and I met in Hawaii. Or not too long after, at least. We were friends first, thanks to a large and exuberant group of mutual friends who always managed to put activities together for all of us to enjoy.

I don't think it's a particularly traditionally Scandinavian dish, but most Scandis I know really like it! This particular… Continue reading Carrot Cake Cupcakes

Blueberry Maple Round Scones

"Scones or biscuits." It's less of a debate around here and more of a curiosity, although I did debate for a while what I should actually be calling these lovely round goodies.
