Gramma Lund's Limpa Bread

Gramma Lund's Limpa Bread by Amos Miller

My paternal grandfather emigrated to the US in 1912 bringing with him his mother's family recipe for the incredibly delicious - almost cake-like - limpa of the southern Swedish countryside.

Four Cheese & Sausage Stuffed Manicotti by Salad Foodie

This was inspired by a few pasta manufacturer web site recipes, but I added my own spin here and there and was pleasantly surprised how well they worked. Oh Mama-Mia, this…

Ciamelli ( Italian Bagels) pronounced chum-ell)

Ciamelli ( Italian Bagels) pronounced chum-ell) by J. Gino Genovesi

Ciamelli are like bagels and have a pleasant taste of anise with a burst of orange. They are of Italian origin, a solid bread, and a great favorite at holidays, especially at Christmas & New Years. In our family they were used as "dunkers"; dunk in wine, cocoa, or coffee. They brought smiles to our faces. Many of those who…

Swedish Apple Pie

Swedish Apple Pie by Salad Foodie

"Easy as pie" as the saying goes. But this recipe is really EASIER than pie! Sliced Granny Smith apples go in the pie dish first, followed by a quick and simple topping. The topping settles down around the apples during baking and becomes lightly crisp - so good! Based on The Apple Lover's Cookbook by Amy Traverso.
