Today I tried a recipe for borscht from Cranks first cookbook. It was delicious, and looked redder and prettier than on the picture. There was no cabbage as it usually is; it contained only beets, potatoes and onion. I have the Swedish translation of the book so it's a bit odd to translate it back to English. Maybe someone have "The Cranks recipe book" from 1982. If you don't have the book but want the recipe just mail me. You find the address to the right under my picture.
It is still gray — but there is a promising feeling in the air, as the spring is waiting in the wings ready to bless us as soon she gets a chance. Spring is the feminine — isn't she?
