Norwegian Pancakes (Pannekaker)

Norwegian pancakes (pannekaker) are one of my favorite dishes to make for brunch parties or lazy Sunday mornings. Somewhere between a crepe and an American pancake, they are soft and thin with crispy edges. And, they make a great base for jams, fruit, cheeses, and sauces!

The Best Gløgg (Norwegian Mulled Wine)

This is the best gløgg (Norwegian mulled wine) made with red wine, bourbon, cardamom, dried fruit, and almonds. It’s my favorite winter cocktail for a holiday party or family dinner! This cocktail is cozy, warm, so simple, make-ahead, and tastes just like Christmas!

Norwegian Lefse

I originally posted a recipe for lefse in 2015, but I decided to update my post this year with my great-grandma’s recipe!  It’s 100% the best Norwegian lefse I have ever had.  Also, you may notice some older pictures mixed in with the new ones.  On one hand, I really wanted some new, pretty pictures of my lefse. but on the other hand, I love the old photos of my brother and I making it together.  Enjoy the rare blonde-college-era Sara pics 😉
