  1. My Danish mother made fattigmann. My husband loved them and has been asking me to make them, but I hate recipes that just use egg yolks ( or whites.) Then I have to make something else to use the rest of the egg up.

  2. Last Christmas I used your grandmother’s recipe for lefse
    It was the best recipe I have ever used for lefse. I will be using it again this year!
    My great grandparents were from Norway.
