Born in Mandal, Norway. Go back every 2 years for 3 weeks. Favorite cookbook is my Moms and Grandmothers. Cook mostly Norwegian food. Married, kids all grown and married. I would guess that my favorite dish to make is waffles or Norwegian pancakes (although I use bringebar..(seedless raspberry jam) instead of strawberry). Also a big holiday meal with assorted meats and fish, potatoes, lefsa, etc.
