Danish Christmas Day Rice Pudding with Cherry Sauce Recipe (Risalamande)

In Denmark, many Danes end Christmas Day dinner with an almond and rice pudding dessert with cherry sauce called Risalamande (pronounced rees-sil-lā-mon-de. ) Actually you can make and eat Risalamande any time of the year but it is often associated with Christmas because one of the ingredients in Risalamande is a rice porridge called Risengrød (pronounced risen-groo with a hint of a d sound at the end) which again, you can eat any time of the year. It is a tradition to serve Risengrød as part of Christmas Eve dinner and put some outside for the gnomes (similar to bribing Santa Claus with cookies and milk.)

Rosemary Garlic Salmon Recipe

I love salmon. Love. It.

Salmon is considered one of nature’s superfoods because it’s loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D and other important nutrients.  However, I used to get my Omega 3's from other more affordable types of fish because fresh salmon was beyond my budget.

Our fish intake increased close to the 20% per week USDA Dietary Guideline once I found Aldi and their super affordable fish. Frozen Aldi salmon is a regular thing now. I'd prefer fresh fish over frozen but I live in a land locked city. Fresh fish has to be brought in. It's really not as fresh as I used to get when I lived on Lake Erie. I stick with the budget friendly frozen salmon.


The folks at Sam's Club sent me this recipe. I don't normally post recipes I haven't created but it was so good I wanted to share it with you.
