Ukrainian Doughnuts – Anna’s Recipe

My mom made the best homemade doughnuts, using her European recipe.  Hers are so much better than the quick recipe I used before. 

Every Christmas Eve my mom joined us for dinner, and always brought in a huge platter of freshly made doughnuts.  We all are still reminiscing about those sweet memories….

Today I will share that recipe with you all, in memory of my mom’s baking and cooking.

Gift Ideas for Special Occassions & Holidays

So, there are only few more shopping days remaining until Christmas, and Hanukkah already began, but you are still running around looking for some great gift ideas.

Sauerkraut Filled Varenyky – Suburbangrandma Recipe

Sauerkraut is basically pickled cabbage.  You either like it or hate it…I happen to love using sauerkraut in cooking and baking.

Not all sauerkraut tastes the same, so if you are not a big fan of it, maybe you should try different dishes prepared with this vegetable.

For this recipe I used really tasty sauerkraut….Bavarian style sauerkraut, which I purchased at Shop Rite, my local grocery.

It is so tasty, I can eat it just the way it is…right out of the jar…..has a slightly sweet taste..I highly recommend it.
