Around the World in 12 Dishes - Explore Sweden!

Welcome to "Around The World in 12 Dishes"
We are excited to be taking a journey around the world, (loosely) following in Phileas Fogg's footsteps, by exploring 12 different countries and cooking 12 dishes - one for each country we visit.

The world is such a wonderfully diverse and colorful place.  I am so excited to get us a bit out of our comfort zone and explore some more of the world with the Lil Divas. What better way to really bring it all to life for them than through food, books and fun?!
