Redux: Scandinavian Cucumber Pickle

I'm having some friends for lunch on Friday and in planning a menu for the get-together I came across this recipe for a cucumber pickle. It was originally featured in 2011 and has proved to be an entry that folks like to re-visit. I know it touched hearts as well as palates and I thought it deserved a "second life." I hope you enjoy the story, hymn and recipe.



From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...I am, by disposition, easily moved to laughter or tears and I have an unusually...

An Encounter in Ubud - Some Enchanted Evening


There's so much I want to tell you about Bali, but it's hard to find the best place to start. My interests lie more with the people of the countries I've visited than the museums and monuments that house their history. Please don't misunderstand.

Touristy matters will come in due time, but first I'd like to share memories of the people who surface whenever I...

You rarely find them in locations that are off-the-beaten-path and the only locals with whom they have contact are tour guides....

Popover for Some Yorkshire Pudding with Make-Ahead Gravy


From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...In my world it's impossible to serve a rib roast without Yorkshire Pudding on the side. I suspect my family would abandon me on a dessert island if I even tried. Fortunately, the pudding is simple to make and comes together quickly. It's made with the same batter that's used for popovers, and I'm always amazed that a handful of ingredients can produce such airy golden towers. Years ago, I followed English custom and made the pudding in a single large...

Christmas in February - Prime Rib and Fixin's


From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...The Silver Fox and I live in an area surrounded by small cattle ranches and, seasonally, that can lead to beef bargains not found in other areas of the country. During the Christmas holidays, standing rib and and strip roasts can be purchased here for what ground beef costs in other communities. My mother raised no foolish children, so I take full advantage of these bargains and pack the freezer when those holiday sale signs appear. That leads to some...
