A great baking book. Covers nearly every holiday celebrated in the US, with an emphasis on what would be celebrated by someone of a Scandinavian background, working chronologically from St. Patrick's Day through President's Day. Includes baked goods both sweet and savory, and every single recipe tested has been a winner. ( )
