    Betty…..That’s fine to grab any recipe I post here. All the recipes (and those coming) are from my Mother’s recipe box and since I have no desire to write a cookbook anyone can use them.

    This comment is not directly related to your post, although the recipe looks really yummy… I accidentaly came across your name in a comment you made on another blog I came across at the APQS chat, and I jumped in my chair when I read your name: It is the same as my mother’s… and she was Norwegian. It is not a very common name back here. I hope I am not rude to ask: Are you of Norwegian heritage?
    Of course I have read my way through your blog – I really enjoyed it!
    Kind regards,
    Anne Langseth Rønningen from Norway

      Anne……I myself am not Norweigen….but my husband is…..Langseth isn’t a real common name…but if you are related to my DH…..then you know about “grandpa with the whiskers”…..if you know about him you are related to my DH!!! Let me know

        I don’t know about “grandpa with the whiskers”. So then I guess we are not directly related. The Langseth name is found in a few different areas in Norway, North of the capital Oslo, and in the countryside not far from the mid country city Trondheim (which my family comes from).
