pierogi, hoska, and babka
I made this loaf of hoska and the "babka" cake for an event I ran on Monday. We used pins and wax to decorate blown (empty) eggs for Easter, a tradition from Eastern Europe and Russia, but also, as I learned in the past few weeks, done in places like Germany and Italy. Last year, there were only 8 or so participants for this "Kraslice" party, but this year we got 12! Little by little, the tradition will catch on, methinks.
Thanks for the recipe, Grandma!
I made sauerkraut-mushroom and onion-garlic-potato pierogi this time.
