Grillaður huma {broiled lobster)

Easy, easy lobster dish!  And just in time for Valentines Day. Yes I am still exploring the culinary world of Iceland and have spent all of 10 minutes learning some Icelandic words down. I’m now a pro at ja and nei (yes and no), pronounce yow and nay.  To be fair August is a looong way […]

Kjötsúpa {Icelandic Lamb Soup}

It’s always been stew to me.  Grandma Bodin’s stew. The first time I remember ever having it, I was 10 years old.  It didn’t look like stew, as in from the can kind, but it had familiar elements of meat, potato, carrots and liquid.  Only it wasn’t the same, and it wasn’t stew.  It was […]
