One of the great things about holiday baking is that everyone has their traditions and favorites. Recipes which span for generations, recipes that cross continents, recipes that adapt and evolve in one’s own kitchen. Each with a history and a story. Sitting around a table with friends a few weeks back and our conversation turned to holiday baking. In typical fashion for our area, most had plans to start off with making large batches of lefse to last through the season. We discussed favorite cookies, like pepperkaker (gingerbread), kransekake (almond tower cake) and krumkaker (wafer-like cakes). One friend, Anne Lise, turned to me, and with a broad smile and glitter in her eyes, told me that one of her favorite julekaker (Christmas baked goods) was knekk-kaker.

Nevada is a utah native and norwegian by heart. When not crafting culinary delights she enjoys her family time and tending to her animals. You most certainly can find her perusing her property for wild berries.
