For Danish Appetites | by Lyla G. Solum



The recipes in this book have been collected over a period of years by the writer. All of them are dear to the heart of a Danish immigrant who brought this little bit of her homeland with her to the new country and all of them were donated to this book as something precious from the giver. A few of the ingredients and cooking utensils used in this book may not be obtainable everywhere. The distributor of the book will be glad to furnish information to any inquiries about where they may be purchased.
