A passion for food surrounded me throughout my childhood. Cooking, canning, freezing, planning meals, and inviting family and friends to share a meal were central activities.

Later, my parents made kosher pickles, pasta, ravioli, and peanut butter. My father made all our bread. The freezer was loaded with corn, peppers, and homemade borscht and zucchini soup. I'm sure I'm forgetting something but this gives you an idea of the level of activity in my parents' kitchen. Food was plentiful and good. Sharing and experimenting was part of the fun.
This blog has some of my favorite recipes. When I have time, I add to the collection. I hope you find something that you enjoy. If you find a mistake in any of my recipes, please leave me a comment so I can fix it. Thanks!
