Holiday Wishes

Wishing you all the happiest of holidays.  The past few days were spent cooking and enjoying a Polish feast like no other.  It was worth every minute spent in the kitchen.  However, the best part was sharing our family traditions with some amazing new friends. 

We ate until it hurt.  I’m not kidding.  I could go on and on about all the incredible foods we all made, making this meal a very special extravaganza.  There are just no words fitting enough to explain the details.

The next few days will be spent enjoying my mom’s company and hopefully getting her to make a few more Polish recipes before she heads home.

I shall return soon.

Best wishes to you all.

    I love reading your blog and have made several recipes from it. Thank you for the make ahead turkey gravy recipe – saved me from freaking out on Christmas Day. We also loved the Cranberry Chutney and have several pint jars in the fridge that need to be given as gifts.

    Your tree is beautiful – I switched to white lights several years ago but seeing your colored ones makes me wish I had those too!
