Tofu Cheesecake
First, if you are not vegan or vegetarian, let me warn you, this will NOT taste like a traditional cheesecake you are used to. However, that being said, if you go into this, looking for an alternative cheesecake-like dessert, realizing that anything with tofu in it will NOT taste like cream cheese, then you should be fine. I personally am not a vegan or vegetarian, however I do like to eat like one periodically to give my body a rest from animal products. So when I took a class on vegan cooking at our local whole foods market, we were introduced to this recipe. I like it! It's got a consistency like cheesecake as long as you use a good quality tofu. There are several different types of 'firm' tofus out there and getting a good quality, usually paying a bit more, at a whole foods or vegan grocer, you will have better results. I tried this recipe once, with a tofu brand I was not familiar with from my local regular grocery store and I think they must have frozen the tofu prior to being on the shelf, which some grocers do, not knowing that it changes the consistency and the usability drastically. To the other reviewer that couldn't get her tofu to blend properly, I would bet that her tofu was frozen at one time. If you are wanting to surprise your vegan and/or vegetarian friends with a treat, I would recommend this. They will enjoy it since they are accustomed to the flavors of tofu and would be very appreciative. I made this for my step-daughter and she was in heaven!

Piadina Romagnola (Italian Flat Bread)
Very good flatbread that is in the permanent rotation in our household. I sub butter for the margarine, since margarine is so salty and just not good for you... also a stick of margarine hasn't graced my kitchen in 20 years.. LOL! I sometimes add a bit of minced garlic to the milk mixture as well a few dried herbs.

Norwegian Pancakes - Pannekaken
Very similar to my BesteMor's recipe. This is more of a north-west Norske recipe (which is where my BesteMor is from), whereas in Oslo they tend to do things a bit different. Every Norwegian home has a different pancake recipe, but they are all good! :-)
