Hello From Sweden

Just to begin with, you have to be patience with my english. It's not the very best.

I just found this forum. My name is Nina, I'm 34 years old. I live in the northern part of Sweden in a town called Skelleftea with my husband and our son.

It is me in our family that cant eat gluten. I've been eating gluten-free food for 10 years now.

I love to bake and always looking for new recipies. It was when I was looking for that on the internet I found this side :) I almost never buy bread or cookies and things like that. It's better to bake, it's become more tastier then.

I hope I will learn something from you and the other way around.

Best regards

Hi Nina,

I'm an American, but all of my ancestors are from Sweden. My mother's parents spoke Swedish at home, and both my parents grew up in Swedish immigrant communities, so I still feel somewhat tied to that background. (MorFar was from Orebro, but that's all I know.) I live in Minnesota, now, which also has lots of Swedish immigrants and history.

Welcome to the group!

Hi Nina,

I'm glad you found this board.

I agree with you on the baked goods. The gluten free breads, cookies, etc. in the stores are so expensive and not that tasty.

My family is from Stockholm. And my husband wants to move to Malmo. He is even trying to learn a little Swedish. :)

Anyway, welcome!

Ah! Stockholm and Malmoe. It's a bit from here. Stockholm is about 750 km and Malmoe is about, hmmm... well I think 1500 km from Skelleftea. A daytrip ;)

Hope you know the metric system, I'm not sure how long it's in miles.

I like the southern part of Sweden. It's not that cold there. Here in Skelleftea we can have like -40 celcius during wintertime. Not fun..... I like it when it's +35 celcius.

Well, I've got relatives in USA:) My Granddads (MorFar) cousine lives in Latrobe, Pensylvania. And I think one lives in LA. Last time I heard they lived there :) But I have never been overseas. I really would like to. It's a dream I have. You guys got soooo yummy chocolate..... :wub: I just looove those with peanutbutter. Peanutbutter is my weaknes. And to combine that with chocolate..... oh my! Then I'm in heaven lol.

I think it's good that we can't buy Goobers grape and peanutbutter here in Sweden. I would look like a ballon then......

Well, now I'm gonna look for some yummy recipies. Hmm.. maby something with chocolate ;)

// Nina
