When I was growing up on our small family dairy farm in west central Wisconsin 40 years ago, my dad—like most farmers I knew—worked from sunup to sunset. He didn’t want fancy food. He wanted good food. And lots of it. My mother used to say she could not figure out how he could eat so much and not gain any weight. The truth, of course, is that Dad worked much too hard for the calories to catch up with him!
Some of the recipes in this book are my mother’s, some are my sister’s, and some are recipes that I have used over the past 30 years and have modified until they turn out the way I want them to.
Recipe sections include: Beverages, Breads, Muffins and Cinnamon Rolls, Cakes, Pies and Desserts, Candy, Casseroles and Main Dishes, Cookies and Bars, Jams, Jellies, Pickles and Miscellaneous, Norwegian, Salads and Vegetables.
I like all the recipes in this book, but my extra-special favorites are Homemade Cinnamon Rolls (in 2 hours or less!), Shamrock Cookies, Double Chocolate Easter Bunny Cake, Lefse and Marshmallow Fudge.
