Hey there! Glad to see you. Here's a little more about me and the reason behind the food blog Ginger with Spice.
Welcome to my corner of the internet where I’ll show you what I’m cooking, or baking... or simply just eating. I am the ginger with a touch of spice, and I love ginger and spicy food.
My name is Stine Mari and I'm the ginger behind these spicy recipes. And if you want a star in my book, please call me by both my first names: Stine Mari. I have never responded to Stine, just like I can't see people calling Mary Kate for Mary.
I'm tucked in between large mountain tops and fjords on the Norwegian west coast and I'm loving it. Yes, it rains a lot. Yes, it's cold.
And YES IT'S GORGEOUS.
The ingredients are often so fresh and surprisingly local, but that doesn't mean I only make Norwegian food. Pretty far from it, as I love my spices, ginger and fresh flavors such as lime and lemongrass. I have yet to find an authentic Norwegian recipe with lemongrass. But I would try it if I did!
What can you expect to find on Ginger with Spice?
Although I have a big love for spicy recipes, you will find about all sorts of dishes here - from healthy to comfort, from sweet to spicy and everything in between. I prefer cooking and baking seasonally (butternut squash soup when the leaves fall, desserts overflowing with berries during summertime and ah… all the delicious Christmas food!), but as it rains every so often outside my kitchen window -
a cup of hot chocolate is always a good idea.
This interest for food goes hand in hand with my interest in travelling the world. I’ve got a scratch map of the world which I intend to scratch every corner of. But, as that is extremely expensive and time consuming, I will in the meantime make food from around the world, look at photographs from pretty destinations and dream.
I am by no means any professional cook, photographer or writer, I’m merely a professional eater. I live in Norway and will often use Norwegian substitutes for ingredients not widely available here. But as my recipes here on Ginger with Spice often are inspired by American recipes, they will also have suitable substitutes for any American out there.
