Swedish Pancakes – the only pancakes my husband will eat. Makes sense – he’s Swedish! This is one of the foods that my husband makes and I just watch and then get to eat them.
If you are not familiar with Swedish Pancakes I will tell you that they are very similar to crepes and not flour heavy like American pancakes.
Strawberry jam is typically spread on them although I like to use syrup
Break the American pancake tradition and give these a try.
Makes 8-10 pancakes

- 2 1/2 C milk
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 C + 1 T flour

Whip the eggs slighty with a whisk and add the milk whisking until blended. Add the flour, salt and melted butter and mix thoroughly. Pour small amount of batter into a buttered frying pan at medium heat. Brown on one side, flip and brown the other side of pancake. Place each finished pancake on oven proof dish and place in warm oven to keep them warm until finished with all of the pancakes. Top each pancake with strawberry jam and serve with bacon or ham.

For years I was hard boiling my eggs way too long to the point that after you peeled the shell and cut them they not only smelled bad but the yellow had darkened (greenish) and was not pleasant to look at. Well, no more! My husband realized what I was doing wrong and explained that the eggs shouldn’t look like that and it was because of overcooking.
The perfect boiled egg:
After placing the eggs in a saucepan with cold water, set the heat on high and the timer for 20 minutes. Remember when the time is up you must cool them quickly in cold water so the shells will come off easily. That’s it, perfect eggs every time!
