Scandinavian Rosettes

A rosette is a thin, cookie-like, deep-fried pastry of Scandinavian origin made using intricately designed irons.  They are light, crispy and can be sprinkled with confectioners' or granulated sugar.

morning by morning new mercies I see

{April morning sunrise}
Great is Thy faithfulness
 written by Thomas Chisholm (1866–1960) music composed by William M. Runyan (1870–1957)

Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father
There is no shadow of turning with Thee
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not
As Thou hast been, Thou forever will be

Raisin Bread Pudding Pie from The Norske Nook

This lovely Raisin Bread Pudding Pie is just one of several recipes I have made from a new cookbook with Scandinavian roots.  The Norsk Nook Book of Pies and Other Recipes, by Jerry Bechard and Cindee Borton-Parker, published by the university of Wisconsin press, has an official publication date of April 27, 2015.  I was thrilled to receive a copy to review and even happier when the book arrived and I was able to look through the amazing collection of more than 70 award-winning recipes.

Sweet Carrot & Cranberry Muffins

wow... these muffins head to the top of the leader board of our list of favorites.
I served them with dinner for my cousins and aunt and they disappeared.
Filled with three cups of shredded carrots and lots of sweet, dried cranberries, they are moist and hearty.  Skip the frosting and spread with whipped cream cheese and they are almost dessert!
