Dagens recept – a food blog

I am a very lucky and spoilt man when it comes to food, since my girlfriend happens to be an excellent amateur cook. For the past year or so I’ve been trying to persuade her to start publishing the recipes for all the delicious food she cooks for us.

Well, she finally gave in, and for the past few weeks we’ve been working on getting her food blog up and running, and Dagens recept (“Today’s recipe”) is now live. The site is in Swedish, so if that is not your language, sorry, this one’s not for you ;-).

You can still look at the pretty photos though. And maybe even try one of those automated translation services that output such hilarious nonsense.

  1. Oh my god, this is just great! I’ve been looking for a good food blog for some time now and Pernilla’s blog seems to fill my empty space in. Now how nice isn’t that? :D

    But the feeds doesn’t work.. :’(

    Oops. It’s working now. Thanks.

  3. I recommend Delicious Days for the English-speaking audience.

  4. This is the rare occasion where using a an automated translation service may actualy land you in hospital.

    My girlfriend says that I need to subscribe to the feeds (am I really that bad in the kitchen…?)

    Some critics: I think the Google ad area at the top of the page should be more separated (maybe that the area has another background colour or something like that) from the design. Now, I think “Recept”, “Soppa” and so on are the main menu.

    Clicking on the RSS-button in Safari sends this to NetNewsWire (assume one has NNW as default feed reader): http://www.dagensrecept.com/atom.xml

    But that doesn’t seem to work, somehow. Don’t know if it’s an issue with NNW, but NNW usually handles most feeds. The feed on the sidebar does work (http://www.dagensrecept.com/index.xml).

  7. The dishes look lovely, tasting them all must be so tiresome ;)

  8. Ooh, good stuff. I very much enjoy cooking, and I could probably become pretty good at it with more practice.

    My main problem has always been inspiration, so it’s mostly been the same stuff week after week.

  9. Oh, that checkmark on the titles of visited recipes is a nice touch.

  10. Very nice looking site. Great work!

    Now, where did my Swedish/English dictionary go…

    Johan: I see how the AdSense link unit could be mistaken for a meny. We’ll try to change it a bit to avoid that.

    Adrian: Hmm. I’ll have to look into that. Not sure what the problem is.

  12. Looks great! Chocolate and Zucchini has some great recipes in English as well.
