The First Day of 2010.....

...began the way each New Year should. Oma made us the Dutch treat known as Oliebollen, and were they ever delicious!!!
Oliebollen are a fritter filled with raisins and deep fried to perfection.
As they drain, you sprinkle with powdered sugar,

....and a little extra powdered sugar never hurts!

What a lovely and sweet way to begin the new decade.....

....and speaking of sweet treats, we went to see this wonderful movie this afternoon. I highly recommend it, and of course having an Oliebollen too. It helps if you have a very cute Oma to bake them for you!!!
So far 2010 is turning out just wonderful. I hope the same for you.

I loved The Young Victoria also.

Hi, just popped by to visit - the fritters look mouth-watering good! I have a friend here in Tennessee who is originally from the Netherlands - her name is Annelies too!

Hey do you have the recipe for Olliebollen that you can share??
My husband lived in the Netherlands for 2years and we were SEARCHING all over last year to make these for new years day and I could not find a good recipe!
