Traditional Norwegian Hot Sour Cream Cake with Apples / Varm Rømmekake med Epler

This is a delicious dessert cake from the time when farmers made their own sour cream. There is no need for the apples in the cake, but they add a fresh fruity flavor you may have to replace by serving jams with the cake if left out.

Blinis symbolizes the sun and represents a very important part of a festival, which celebrates that the long winter is over: “Maslenitsa”, pancake week.

Chicken Stroganoff /Kylling Stroganoff

A stroganoff variation with chicken found in
“A Sampler of Modern Sour Cream Recipes”
published by the American Dairy Association in 1970

Chicken Stroganoff /Kylling Stroganoff

Beef Stroganoff (Russian: бефстроганов befstróganov) is a Russian dish of sautéed pieces of beef or served in a sauce with smetana (sour cream). From its origins in mid-19th-century Russia, it has become popular around the world, with considerable variation from the original recipe such as this one.

Various explanations are given for the name, presumably derived from some member of the large and important Stroganov family, perhaps Alexander Grigorievich Stroganoff of Odessa or a diplomat, Count Pavel Stroganov.

A rather surprising waffle recipe for scandinavians who do not serve waffles for breakfast, but more like we would serve cakes. A waffle recipe without sugar or other sweetening would of course then seem a little strange to us.

They all had dinner – fourteen of them round the immense three-pedestal table extended to its uttermost and even then they were crammed round it. They ate four roast chickens, bread sauce, mashed potato and runner beans followed by plum tart and what the Duchy called Shape – blancmange.
