Delfiakake, joy and activity

Our house is brimming with activity, joy and happiness these days. Torgeir is home from Australia, father in law has travelled 1000kms to celebrate Christmas with us, Øystein comes home for meal and chatters, Ingrid's boyfriend has not yet left to spend the holidays with his family, friends of Marta frequent the kitchen........
Terje and I gather our energy, count our blessings and feel thankful for every precious moment. I know I will be exhausted when January comes, but believe me, it is worth it.
My soon to be 85 years old father in law is the best cook I know, and he never wastes a chance to pass forward his talents. Sitting in my studio writing this, I have the door open, and from the kitchen downstairs comes the enchanting fragrance of fresh cookies. He, Marta and Marit are baking "brune pinner" ("brown sticks").
The Blue Café is busy these days, but there is always room for one more around our table.

The photo shows my "delfiakake",
made from the same recipe are the puffed rice balls.

I will post a recipe for a favorite holiday cookie for you on my site - however, I fear the ingredients may be difficult for you to find in Norway, based on our Swedish friends experience.. but who knows?
