Jello salad

Happy New Year! We are going to start the new year off bright! I’m back from my holiday hiatus and thank you for your patience and well wishes while I took some time to be with my family during the holidays. After the loss of my Mother in November, it was a quiet Christmas. As […]

Hello. It’s been a while. I haven’t been ignoring you – I’ve been sad. My beautiful Mother left this world on November 4th and is now cooking for the angels. She’s earned her wings as she has suffered from dementia for over six years. Dementia is an ugly disease that robs a person of their […]

Chocolate Crepes

I remember Mother’s Days of years gone by when my little girls would make me breakfast in bed. They would make me lie in bed while they were whispering and hustling in the kitchen. The three of them would parade in carrying a tray of toast, cereal and a flower picked from the garden. We […]

Cheese-Filled Braided Bread

This Easter I’m switching it up by trying a new recipe for our Easter Bread. Every year I make the traditional Paska that my Mother has made for years – this year I wanted something a bit different. This recipe rocks! It looks like danish with cheese filling. It looks hard to make – but […]

I’m sliding right under the wire on this one! St. Paddy’s Day is not over yet…I just have to share this recipe. It’s not mine. I found it on the Internet and kept losing the recipe. So today I’m writing about so I don’t lose the recipe again! It is such a delicious way to […]

Well hello there. It’s been a while. I’ve been out of commission and out of the kitchen for the past month. I had a little thing done like a new knee installed in my body.  My new knee and I are still getting acquainted. I’m learning how to bend it again and how to walk […]

thymepotatoes

Why? Why do what we do to sweet potatoes? We cover them with marshmallows…with sugar…with syrup….brown sugar…and butter. Why can’t we just let them be their own sweet self? Sweet potatoes have been so misunderstood. Every Thanksgiving we are forced to deal the latest sugary-coated recipe. Here’s a recipe where the potatoes rule…enhanced only by […]

This is a recipe full of memories which crosses many chapters in my life. Today I’m a bit melancholy and misty-eyed as I remember my (ex) Mother-in-Law who passed a year ago would make blintzes for the Jewish celebrations and my own Mother who now suffers from dementia, used this recipe to make Palatschinke, a […]

I’m not Irish…I don’t even own one piece of green clothing but I sure have fun with the holiday! When my girls were little toddlers, I would wake them up in the morning in my Irish brogue (well, my Polish Slovak Irish brogue)… and would talk to them all day in my brogue… I would […]
