I bought this book for my brother-in-law last year for Christmas and he and I both had the opportunity to test our ebelskiver skills when I visited over Thanksgiving. Although these guys look relatively easy to make, they gave us a run for our money! Eventually we got the hang of the little things to pay attention to, like the perfect temperature for evenly cooking both sides, when to flip them over, and perhaps starting out with easier recipes before diving straight into filled ones.
Looking at the recipe and work it takes into making an ebelskiver, we thought our culinary aptitude would allow us to jump right into making a beautifully filled puffy pancake... and we were wrong! Eventually we got the hang of it, but take my (our) advice and start with something easy.
Here is the photo story with a recipe to try your own below:

Sandwich Classic Dress / Cole Haan Riding Boots / Juicy Couture Watch / Knot Earrings / Nine West Scarf
I feel it's a lot better to look back on things we're thankful for and the blessings we've been given when you're wearing something that isn't cutting off the circulation to your waist. There are a few dress codes to think about when sitting down to the best meal of the year:
1. Wear something forgiving. This means wearing something a little looser than usual so you can fit an extra dollop of mashed potatoes and stuffing. (Mmm!)
2. Still be presentable. Dressing up doesn't mean dressing to the extreme. A simple dress and a few jewels go a long way.
3. Dress codes are only enforced before and during your meal. Afterwards, pajamas and house socks (I have a sick obsession with house socks) are more than accepted for hanging out with your family and/or friends.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
