Talking Hello from Holland!

Hi all - My name is Jim, I'm writing in from the Netherlands and I'm baking-crazy. Fabulous to find this forum!

Hi Jim and welcome. My Grandma was from the Netherlands (Utrecht). I have such found memories of her. She was a baker as well. Baked every day of the week. I wish I had her recipe for cinnamon rolls! I was lucky enough to visit her homeland during the bulb season a couple years ago. We went to Amsterdam, Delft, Utrecht (of course), Leiden, Keukenhof, etc. It was beautiful. All those bulb fields, windmills and bikes. Can't wait to go back someday.

Hi Jim !

Was in Holland years ago and I lived on Stroopwafels ! Haven't been able to get it here - do you have a recipe or does everyone just buy them in the supermarket ?

Stroopwafels are waffles, right. Oh my the waffles and the pancakes (apple pancakes!) were to die for. I've never been able to duplicate them here. Jim from Holland, we need recipes!! LOL!
