NEEDLES & KNITS
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, here is a great recipe that you could make for dessert. It freezes really well and it is really moist. It can be made as muffins or as a cake. If making for Thanksgiving, add the icing and it is absolutely decadent!
P. S. No one will know there is zucchini in it unless you tell them.
Also, take a look at all the new Fall & Winter Classes that Gabriella is teaching this fall. There are some really unique things to knit.
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Needles and Knits!!!
Tea with Tove had a really nice Christmas dinner for their last meeting in December. It was compliments of Tove and everyone brought in lots of goodies for dessert. All of the desserts were a hit and we thought we would share one of them with you. It is one of those desserts that makes you look like you slaved for hours making it, but really is so easy to make. Cathy changed the trifle to a chocolate version to satisfy all the chocolate lovers in her house. We hope you enjoy it.
All of us from Needles & Knits wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and all the very best in 2016!!!!
Here are two recipes that you could make for that special someone, friend, or family. Both are lower in saturated fat compared to the usual recipes one makes this time of the year. Berta, is a long time friend of Tove, and kindly provided this recipe to share
If you love oatmeal cookies, these are fantastic. The black bottom cupcakes are Lorris’ Mothers’ not so secret recipe. The cream cheese topping balances out the chocolaty goodness! Both whip up in no time.

Christmas is fast approaching and we all are looking for something different to serve our guests.
In Norway, juletid (Christmas time) is a celebration of traditions and family in Norway. Norwegians enjoy rich food and share julefryd (Christmas cheer) with friends and family. One of the Norwegian traditions is to serve salmon on Christmas Eve. Why not try this plank salmon that Tove makes for Christmas Eve for her family? Have a little bit of Norway in your Christmas!
Purchase your salmon filets (one large feeds about 6 people) and cedar planks (available at Home Depot, Canadian Tire – the planks that is).
REMEMBER to soak the planks in water for at least one hour, overnight is better (so they don’t catch fire on the BBQ).
Tove just seasons her salmon with salt and pepper but feel free to try one of the serving suggestions listed above.
We at Needles and Knits would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their patronage and wish everyone a
