The only one you need!

If I could only keep one cookbook, it would be this one. It has everything you'll ever need. This book has special meaning to me also because 20 years ago I worked at a summer camp and our cook was Helen. Can you imagine? Staying at summer camp and having the best food of your life? Helen had recently sold her restaurant to retire, but somehow she was sweet talked into being our cook. I've never tasted such wonderful food in my life and I doubt I will again. I've made so many recipes out of this cookbook and they are AWESOME! Helen also includes some "training" within the book, which I really appreciate. My favorite recipe is for potato salad--it must satisfy the German in me!

Great find!

The actual Norske Nook was a great find out in the middle of nowhere, and I think the cookbook will be fun to have in my collection of proven recipes. I haven't had a chance to try them yet, but they look and sound as wonderful as the ones that made this restaurant so popular.

I didn't trust ratings like "#1" -- then I tried the pies!

I am always suspicious of ratings like "#1 Roadside Cafe". But being a displaced cheesehead, when I received this as a gift, I smiled. When reading it you quickly realize the limitations of the advice: unless you know who in town has the best butter (etc.), you are going to have to settle for store bought ingredients (and the authors are right -- it will not taste the same: alas for the days when we could get dairy products from the Kramers!). But I digress. I have hundreds of cookbooks (of which I am only writing up my favorites). I have baking books, I have books on pies alone (which produce some stunning results, BTW). But if I am going to eat the pie myself, out comes the Norske Nook. It is as close to heaven on a fork as you will ever get (unless you are driving through Wisconsin along I-94 and stop in for the real deal).

READ this c ookbook!

This book is fun to read, she has stories and tips throughout. If you are unsure how to cook the basics (roast, pies etc) this is a great starter book. All simple ingredients and easy instructions. Fun 'old farmer' stories. Great for bridal shower gift.

Excellent recipes -- fun stories

This is not just any old cook book, it is full of stories that are fun to read and add to your enjoyment in cooking and eating the delicious recipes. I would recommend it to anyone who likes to cook or to read about farm life in Wisconsin.
