Editorial Reviews Review

North Dakota doesn't always make the top ten of culinary destinations, but that's a shame, according to Carrie Young's tribute to mom's Norwegian cooking. Norwegian food flavored her childhood, so Young's account of the Dakota homesteader experience is strewn with recipes of lefse (potato bread) and julekake (Scandinavian cinnamon raisin bread). From Threshers' Stew to Fattigman (deep-fried cookies), Three-Day Buns (that's how long it takes to make them, not how long they last) to mom's Rhubarb Strawberry Pie, Young's reminiscences and recipes impart the aura of the prairie homestead, heavily seasoned by the scents of the Norwegian kitchen.

You won't be sorry you picked up this book. I've read two other books by Carrie Young, and they are all just a treat to read. I grew up eating this kind of food, lovingly cooked by my Norwegian grandmother. I thoroughly enjoyed reading these recipes and accompanying stories. The stories are often hilarious, and they all ring true for those of us with similar backgrounds. I'm picking up another copy of this book as a birthday gift for a relative, I know she'll love it!!! A great book for Scandinavians, for persons from the midwest, or for anyone else!!!

This is a great book for Scandinavian recipes used EVERYDAY in America. There are tons of cookbooks for those special occasions, but the recipes which are hard to find are the ones that grandma didn't write down; she used them everyday; no need to refer to a recipe card! I found SIMPLE recipes that were used when the goal was to just feed the family, not to "entertain." But these are GOOD recipes, quite literally, like "Grandma used to make." If you're looking for a recipe that isn't fancy, but a family favorite, this is the place to find it!
