As the holidays are drawing near, I am back in the kitchen doing some baking. I don't particularly like cooking, but baking I do enjoy! Something about all that good smelling stuff coming out of the kitchen makes the house all 'hyggelig' and makes those dark days seem not quite so dark.

This morning I tried Kelli's sopapilla cheesecake. It's done, but we haven't yet tried it but I have to say it certainly looks good! It just seemed a bit heavy to have immediately after eating our scrambled eggs :)

But, the point of this post is that I wanted to share an extremely helpful site that I found awhile ago. This site is awesome - someone took the time to translate the names of all sorts of ingredients from English to all the Scandinavian languages, and to Russian. So, here's the link:

  1. Enjoy your sopapilla cheesecake!! Thanks for sharing the recipe website! It's great what you can find on the web... even the best of blog buddies! :-)

  2. Hello! I found your blog through Nifty Adventures. I lived in Aalborg, Denmark for a year and married a Dane also. We moved back to my hometown (suburbs of Washington, DC) in 2004, but get back to Denmark at least once or twice a year.

    I look forward to reading your blog, I am sure we have a lot in common as far as our experiences as Americans living in Denmark. :-)

  3. Ok, this food translation site is GREAT!! What an incredible resource! I cook with the laptop close at hand I will bookmark this one!
