I love to see everything Swedish, such as architecture, nature, design, people and foodie shows of course makes me feel good and connected to my roots. SVT World has an exclusive offer in the US and Canade for their Internet Protocol Television, IPTV, this year as they celebrate 25 years broadcasting Swedish programs abroad. Via a special box provided by SVTs service partner  you can stream programs to your TV up to 48 hours after they were broadcasted in Sweden.

Follow the snus or snoose and you will find the Swedes. This tobacco product made to perfection by generations of Swedes for centuries is still going strong with a big number of users in Sweden. Snus is made of grind tobacco, water and salt. Tobacco from all over the world is blended for different varieties of snus. This product can not be compared with either the US chewing tobacco or snuff as the Swedish snus is spit free and also, just like Swedish coffee, much stronger than its American relatives. First time users often get so dizzy they have to lie down and some have suggested it would even be called Swedish marijuana.

I fried frozen mini pancakes in butter and filled one Russian style with smoked salmon, sour cream and topped with black caviar from lumpfish. The second I filled with Southern food, sliced, boneless BBQ wings and BBQ sauce. The third is Swedish style, filled with mashed potatoes, one sliced meatball and topped with lingonberry jam. Surprisingly good pancakes!

This is a very tasty dish, easy to make and good enough to serve at a dinner party. I serve it with halved brussel sprouts.
