Norwegian Baking

It seems as though I always start digging out my Scandinavian recipes as soon as the temperature drops near the 40 degree mark. That would be about 4 1/2 degrees Celsius, if you're in Norway or any part of the world other than the U.S., Burma or Liberia.

I guess when I realized that most of the world is using the metric system, it dawned on me that it wouldn't be such a bad idea to post the metric equivalents for ingredient measures when I post recipes! Well, I may or may not - all depending on how motivated I am.

Lately that hasn't been much, as I'm sure you've noticed by the frequency of my posts. Sorry, I hope you haven't been waiting for any ideas for dinner! If you read any of my other blogs (just check my profile for links if you are interested), you'll know just how crazy my life has been lately. Or shall I say how crazy I am? Crazy enough to go back to school besides working a full-time job and raising three teenage boys.

Oh, yeah - I also hit a deer last Wednesday with my van. More venison recipes will follow! But venison aside, I digress - where was I? Oh yeah, the Scandinavian recipes! I found a steal of a deal on eBay, and couldn't pass it up. I bought an old Krumkake iron for under $10. They're usually more like $40. Of course this isn't the fancy electric kind that makes two at a time, but it will keep me busy while the boys are frying rosettes. The picture here was another one I found on Flickr - so good of the kind people there to share their photos and allow others to use them! It sure helps me out when I'm too busy to get photos taken of my own. Check back for step-by-step photos of my Norwegian recipes - My next few posts will be dedicated to those, just in time for holiday baking.
