“Thanks to you and your class my girls and I were a mean lefse making machine this weekend. We ended up with over 100 lefse’s in 3 1/2 hrs. using 20 pounds of potatoes. No mishaps other than a bowl of flour ending up on the floor. We were very pleased with how easy the rolling went when the potatoes are prepped properly.Thanks again.
