Blueberry Sweet Bread – Recipe

This Blueberry Sweet Bread with a glass of milk makes a perfect after-school snack for your kids or grandkids. It is not too sweet and all those blueberries are so good for all of us.

My granddaughter gave it high marks, but my grandson expressed his preference for an apple cake.

Steamed Fruit Dumplings – Recipe and Technique

This recipe is a very old favorite of mine. It reminds me of my grandmother’s cooking days and my Sunday visits to her with my mom.
I love these fluffy dumplings because they are so light in texture, and so delicious served with melted butter and sugar.
This recipe goes back to my great-grandmother who was of German descent, and most likely back to her mother and grandmother, which datewise would go back to the 1700s.

Quick Homemade Donuts (Paczki, Pampushky) – Recipe

I love homemade donuts, especially those made from a Ukrainian or Polish recipe, since it reminds me of my mom’s heaping plate of these, for special occasions, or weekends.

If you ever had homemade donuts, you will agree that they are absolutely delicious!!

Ukrainian Nut Roll – Recipe

If you ever attended a Ukrainian Christmas or Easter Bazaar, you must have been amazed by how many baked goods there are available for sale, plus tables flooded with Nut Rolls, Poppy Seed Rolls, Lekvar Rolls, Apricot Rolls, and other goodies.

These rolls are made out of sweet yeast-raised dough, then filled with one’s favorite filling, rolled up, then baked to a nice golden color.

My favorite is a Nut Roll, filled with a creamy mixture made out of ground walnuts.  Today I will share my sister-in-law’s recipe for a Nut Roll, however, I also used Solo brand Poppy Seed, Apricot, and Plum (Lekvar like jam) fillings for my rolls.
