Scandinavian

Being a Norwegian/Scandinavian, naturally there will be a lot of Scandinavian or Scandinavian inspired recipes. Because tradition is really big in Scandinavia during Christmas, a lot of these recipes will be Christmas related.

 

My favorites include easy chocolate rice puffs, Scandinavian mulled wine and crispy donuts. But there are many goodies that’s not Christmas related too: vanilla custard coconut buns, fresh jello and almond crunch chocolates among others!
