traditional badge americanWhen I found this book at a flea marked last month I almost dropped it right back in the cardboard box I found it in. The cover is so badly designed that I thought “Not bloody likely”. Luckily I leafed through it and found that it was crammed with decent recipes and good photos. I refuse to believe that the inside was designed by the same person who designed the cover – Ted 😉

Old Fashioned Macintosh Toffee / Gammeldagse Myke Karameller

A recipe by Chef Dee found on food.com010_macintosh_toffee_page
Chef Dee’s Note
This is the best toffee I have ever tasted. It is a popular item at the Christmas Farmer’s Market here, and with just 4 ingredients it’s easy to make. I prefer to decrease the cooking time slightly for a softer toffee.

Norwegian “Lapper”*

A traditional griddle cake recipe found on the popular food site MatPrat


traditional badge2* “Lapper” are small pieces of paper or fabrics. To write someone a “lapp” means to write someone a note, and passing “lapper” is frowned upon in school (passing notes between students without the teacher knowledge). “Lapper” is also a traditional Norwegian pancake-like griddle cake not unlike “Sveler” that I posted about the other day – Ted
