Kottbullar (Swedish Meatballs)

Contributed by: Bernadette Veenstra @ The Barefoot Hippie Girl


4 slices of high-quality white sandwich bread, crusts trimmed and discarded and bread quartered

1/2 cup heavy cream

1 pound ground pork

2 large egg yolks

1 large onion, grated

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon ground allspice

salt and pepper

1 cup vegetable oil

In large bowl, mash the cream and bread together to make a paste.  Add the meat, yolk, onion, spices, 1 teaspoon of salt, and a 1/2 teaspoon of pepper and mix all together.  Shape into 1″ round balls, you should have about 60 meatballs.

Measure 1/4″ of oil into the bottom of a 10″-12″ skillet and heat over medium-high heat.  When the oil sizzles, add the meatballs in a single layer and fry, turning as needed until lightly browned on all sides.  A fork is helpful for turning.  Adjust the heat, as needed, to keep the oil sizzling, not smoking.  Transfer browned meatballs to a paper towel lined plate and set aside.


2 Tablespoons butter

2 Tablespoons flour

3-1/2 cups chicken broth

1 Tablespoon brown sugar

2 bay leaves

1 cup heavy cream

4 Tablespoons lemon juice

2 Tablespoons minced fresh dill leaves

salt and pepper

For the sauce, discard the oil in the pan, but leave behind any brown bits.  Add the butter and melt over medium-high heat. Stir in the flour and let sit for 30 seconds.  Stir in the broth, sugar and bay leaves, and bring to a simmer, scrapping up the browned bits.  Cook until the sauce thickens, about 5 minutes.  Stir in the cream and meatballs, turning them occasionally to heat through.  Remove from heat.  Add lemon juice and dill; salt and pepper to taste.

Mix together filling ingredients until smooth and thick.  Pour into the pie shell and bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes, until set.


2 cups chocolate chips

1 cup whipping cream

Combine ganache ingredients in a microwave safe bowl.  Heat for 1-2 minutes until cream is hot, and stir to melt chocolate.  Stir until smooth.  Cool in refrigerator, stirring occasionally, so it cools evenly, and doesn’t harden.

2 Tablespoons confectioner’s sugar

While ganache is cooling, whip the cream until soft peaks form.  Add sugar and continue whipping until stiff peaks form.

Don’s Taco Dip

Contributed by:  Don Gibson, my wonderful husband

2 tubs sour cream

2 packets taco seasoning

2 tomatoes, diced and drained

2 packaged shredded cheese

Black olives and/or jalapenos, if desired

Mix the tubs of sour cream together with the seasoning in a bowl, until well mixed.  Spread the mixture in the bottom of a 13 x 9″ dish.  Top with diced tomatoes.  Layer shredded cheese evenly on top and finish with black olives and/or jalapenos, if desired.  Serve with tortilla chips.

Note:  Its best to drain as much liquid from the tomatoes as possible, or the dip will become “runny.”  We take the diced tomatoes and put them in a colander over another bowl for a couple hours to allow the water to drain.
