Essentials

Icicles hanging from the roof.

 

Snow

When icicles are hanging from the roof and the temperature dips below the zero mark on the Fahrenheit scale, I turn to comfort food and wool clothing.  Having been raised by parents who were either from  the old country, or whose grandparents were, some of my comfort food is from scandinavia.  We grew up with certain foods and traditions, and now I find I can’t live without them.  Here are the best of Norway and Sweden that I can’t live without:

Norwegian Goat Cheese, Gjetost
