    Editing per my Grandmother to get the story right: This cake recipe was passed down to my great Grandmother Helen from my Swedish great great Grandmother Maria. It is over 100 years old...possibly 150 or more! Some of my Swedish relatives started the famous Svenhards bakery here in California. They no longer own it but their original packages have my great great Aunt Tilda's (Maria's sister) photo on them! *My Grandmother also says to please beat the egg whites...they make the cake lighter and fluffier.

    Recipe #202590

    My grandmother's mother and father were both off the boat from Sweden in the late 1800's. This is my grandmother's recipe from her mother, so if your looking for a REAL Swedish Meatball recipe, here it is, straight from the home land! I had this recipe many times growning up, as my mom loved to cook it for us... This is GREAT served over cooked buttered noodles, as a main dish with veggies, or over potatoes. I LOVE IT both ways!

    Recipe #219746

    My grandmother is a full blooded Swede and she got this recipe from her mother, who came over to America in the late 1800's. She used to make this dessert for my sisters, brother, and I when we were young. We all LOVED it, and I cherish the recipe... This is definately one of my FAVORITE desserts, one of the BEST I have ever had the pleasure of eating! It is so DELICIOUS, everyone loves it that I share it with, and wants the recipe. Try it. Your family will love it as much as mine does!

    Recipe #84441

    These are thin pancakes. Trust the process-batter is very thin and runny! We always roll them up into little logs to serve with toppings or stuff rolled inside. It's fun for the kids to pick their own toppings. They 'keep' well, and it doesn't hurt the quality to collect them on a dish in the oven while you cook the whole batch so everyone can eat together. Save the leftovers, they microwave great!

    Recipe #229197

    A classic Norwegian apple cake often served for afternoon coffee inspired this simple, moist and flavorful muffin. These are a real favorite around my house.

    Recipe #93279

    I only saw a handful of other Pannekoeken recipes out here, but none quite like Gamma's. Be sure to serve immediately as it will sink. Serve with warm syrup.

    Recipe #229205

    Can be made by hand or in bread machine. Posted for 'Zaar World Tour II.

    Recipe #170054

    Serve this nut-filled pastry made with refrigerated pie crust with a compote of fruit for an easy breakfast worthy of company. A kringle is a thin pastry developed over 100 years ago in Denmark. Kringles are hand-rolled from Weinerbrod dough. Many layers of the flaky dough are made, stacked then shaped in an oval. After filling with fruit, nut, or other flavor combinations, the pastry is baked and iced. Kringles are still popular items in modern Danish bakeries. Recipe from Dean Phillips, Pillsbury Bake-Off 38 contestant.

    My dad always makes this for the Holidays and we all love it! I have never made it myself for fear of doing something wrong- it may take a few tries to get it perfect (I wonder how long it took my dad...) Use whole milk for this one- It makes the rice nice and thick! Mmmm...I can't wait until the Holidays are here again!

    Recipe #64308

    I remember eating this when I was younger. It was the only way I liked cabbage then. This seems to really bring out the sweetness of the vegetable and remove any harshness- which kids just do not enjoy. As a kid it looked like something drenched in gravy or whipped cream- looks are deceiving- but whatever gets the kid to eat the veggie was cool with my mom.

    Sweet and tangy. I found this on a magazine clipping in my grandma's recipe box. I know she used to freeze it, although I haven't tried that yet. The long cook time is the marinating.

    Recipe #135855

    This simple recipe makes a great picnic side dish!

    Recipe #326972

    Yummy side dish to serve with any type meat, especially pork. This dish is very popular along the Canadian border as well as with Norwegian immigrants to America and Canada. Try this with a shot of Amaretto added in... mmm...

    Recipe #137321

    My mom used to make this in the summertime with cucumbers fresh from her garden. It became a family favorite. I use my mandoline to slice the veggies very thin. I hope you enjoy this cool summertime salad as much as we do! Cooking time is chilling time.

    Recipe #170506

    A easy-to-make inexpensive potato salad. The homemade dressing for this is really good and I feel what makes it so good, and works equally well with macaroni salad. This is my mom's recipe, and her mom made it before her. I use about 6 hard-boiled eggs because I like my potato salad with more eggs. The prep and cook time is only a estimate, as I've never timed how long it takes to make this. If you use mayo instead of Miracle Whip I'd suggest starting with only 1 T. sugar and adding more to taste as mayo is sweeter than Miracle Whip. And of course please feel free to adapt this recipe ingredient-wise to your familie's preferences.

    Recipe #20907

    Swedish meatballs must be the most famous "export" recipe from this fascinating country. I like to think that these are a little bit different, and more authentic than most recipes you see. This is REAL Swedish home cooking at its best - and if you can manage to get hold of Lingonberries, you will notice a wonderful & very subtle difference; however, cranberries will do just as well. These meatballs are perfect served with piles of mashed potatoes or broad ribbon pasta.

    My husband is of Norse heritage - a Danish father, and Swedish mother. When they were still among us, his mom would make a buffet of all the classic stuff-Swedish Meatballs,Swedish Potato Sausage, "Brunabuner"(baked beans with cinnamon)rice pudding with lingenberries,limpa bread caraway cheese...on and on,for Christmas Eve dinner. I have a few of her recipes, but her Swedish Meatball recipe was not real specific.I found this recipe in a cookbook,"365 Ways to Cook Hamburger and Other Ground Meats" and they are truly good. The husbamd likes them even better than Mom's!

    Recipe #49472

    Best meatloaf EVER! We had this for dinner at a friend's the other night, and couldn't believe how good it was.

    Recipe #213826

    My Aunt Eva's parents came from Sweden early in the 20th century. She had learned many of her mother's recipes and was a fabulous and adventurous cook. I was fortunate to have inherited all her treasured cookbooks and also fortunate that she took time to teach a newlywed to make this version of stroganoff. The only difference in mine is that I use my own homemade glace de viande rather than the beef broth as in the recipe. This is a very, very basic recipe. Experiment with it to get it as you like it, Aunt Eva would have approved. A short discussion about the recipe before it was made public:
