Many of you know that I lived in Denmark for a short while. That’s where I met my husband, Paul, and it’s also the birthplace of The House That Lars Built! And though my time there was short, I grew to love the country, the traditions, and the food! Which is why I was thrilled to receive Leela Cyd’s new cookbook, “Tasting Hygge: Joyful Recipes for Cozy Days and Nights“! Hyyge is a Danish custom that’s caught quite a bit of attention the past few years. We even read about in our Book Club! Although there isn’t an exact English translation, hygge refers to a feeling of warmth and coziness, often characterized by glowing candles, warm sweaters, and close friends and family circled around a crackling fire. I think we can all get behind that.
Leela’s cookbook is full of recipes that capture these exact feelings. One recipe, in particular, caught my eye and I knew I had to share it! This Rice Porridge with Cranberries and Rose sounds absolutely dreamy, right? Paul makes rice pudding every year, so I know he’ll be thrilled to try this! Make sure to check out Tasting Hygge for more scrumptious recipes!
