Couples, colleagues, friends, singles, kids. All are welcome.

Lefse by candlelight

The first try at making lefse turned out ok, though some things maybe are better left for purchasing at the market. The best result might have been the smell and experimenting with different ingredients to roll up in the lefse.








I really had no idea what I was doing, but made the dough, rolled it out as thin as I could, then cooked in the pan until golden and warm.


Stuff with:

Brunost (brown cheese) and cucumbers

Brown deli mustard and salmon, dill sprinkles



Chiaseed Jam

Soak spoonfuls of chiaseeds in water for at least one hour

Blend in a cup of rinsed, frozen berries

Store in a sealed jar, spread for about 5 days #chowhapppy!




Topping tryout








The best part of making pizza at home? Making it however you want!

Spread out the dough

Top with whatever tasty toppings you’ve got

Kidney beans and spring greens turned out totally delightful along with a mix of tomatoes and other delightfully common assortments

The sauce was made out of tomato paste and fresh herbs like basil, rosemary, thyme, and black pepper
