17 Mai, Cakes

Pavlova

In time for May 17th I wanted to share a recipe for pavlova. It’s not traditional Norwegian in the sense of originating from here, but it has become a staple in May festivities around the country. It’s a airy, sweet, delicious dessert to serve. For those unfamiliar, May 17th is Norwegian Constitution Day. We celebrate […]

Pannekaker (Norwegian Pancakes)

Here’s a recipe for a childhood favorite, Pannekaker! Norwegian pancakes are thinner than American pancakes, but still a smidge thicker than crepes. And for us it’s definitely a dinner food, not breakfast. (Not that it stops you from eating them for breakfast if you’d like!) It’s also quick and easy, requires only four ingredients that […]

Veggie Soup with Chicken
Chicken, Soups

Veggie Soup with Chicken

I love veggie soup, it’s just comfort in a bowl to me! Especially on cold days, which there of course are plenty of here in Norway, haha. I started out looking for soup recipes, but ended up combining a few to my own little mix. There is especially something about veggie soup with celery root […]

Brennende Kjærlighet – Burning Love

I’m really not sure how this dish ended up with the name “Burning Love”. Tried looking around, but couldn’t really find anyone else that was quite sure where the name came from either. But at any rate, it’s a really tasty meal. And it’s quick and easy! Heck, it’s so easy I don’t think I […]

Norwegian Apple Cake

I’m sure we all have certain recipes we’ve had around forever, and this is one of them for me. The first time I actually made this was in home economics back in 9th grade, haha! It’s simple and oh so tasty, and a great way to use up some apples! Not to mention the incredible […]

Sausages

Sausage Stroganoff

Here is a recipe for another quick and easy dinner that’s a huge hit in my family. It’s hands down my favorite Swedish dish after having lived there for 6 years. Swedish meatballs ain’t got nothing on the Korv (Sausage) Stroganoff if you ask me! Funnily enough it took me moving to the US to […]

Waffles

Norwegian Waffles

For the weekend, I wanted to share one of my family’s favorite things to make – Norwegian waffles! (Or Scandinavian, I think these melt across our borders really) While I know in the US waffles is more of a breakfast food, to us Scandinavians it’s more of a sweet treat. In Norway you make waffles […]
