Hosting Mother’s Day Brunch — Recipe & Decor Ideas

It’s that time again to show your Mom just how special she really is. In my opinion, pet-mom’s count too! Nico, if you’re reading this! 😉 

My sis and I have been chatting back and forth about the spread we will have for our Mother’s Day brunch for Mrs. M! We both love baking and cooking, so that’s exactly what we will do for our mom. The weather does not look good so we had to resort to our Plan B – hosting indoors at my house. All outdoor events are off limits with a May Nor’easter heading our way #nofun

Traditional Soup for Easter Morning: POLISH WHITE BORSCHT

Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs

It is officially Easter Week! N is on a business trip and I have been quite busy this week – I was in a commercial yesterday! (I have always loved acting ever since I was 12 and started taking classes in the 7th grade! The long – all day shoots don’t bother me one bit.. I’ll share some BTS pics on tomorrow’s post!)

I haven’t had time to prepare my house for Easter this year!! There is just so much to do! Luckily, we do not host Easter so I guess it doesn’t matter as much?? But one day, I would love to have it all Eastery … (more…)

Friday’s Five: My Birthday & St. Patrick’s Day!

Happy Friday and Happy Saint Patrick’s Day, everyone!

I am not Irish at all,  but I do celebrate on this day, because well it is my birthday! When I was born at 11:53AM, all the nurses were excited that a “Patricia” was born (so my mom tells me) My parents decided to make Patricia my middle name so there ya have it. That is the most Irish thing about me 🙂

It is also my last year of my 20’s. I turn (more…)

A Valentine’s Day treat you can make any time of the year: Strawberry Dumplings

I shared one of my families favorite recipes for kluski, a potato based dumpling in my Thanksgiving Day post, and now I want to show you another Polish recipe using those kluski …..and strawberries.

It may seem a little strange if you are not from Eastern European decent,  but we like to mix fruit and berries into some of the standard recipes — like blueberry or cherry pierogi or apple rice for instance. Sour cream has always been a staple in the fridge growing up, so we also serve these Strawberry kluski with some sweetened sour cream. Trust me, you need to make these and experience the delicious flavor for yourself or better yet, make them for (more…)

Every year, at my parents house, we make Christmas cookies. Actually, my dad is the one who leads the way – he does all the Christmas baking! This year, I decided to try this simple recipe. I meant to post this last night, but I will admit that I messed up the oh so simple dough – I used whole wheat flour in an attempt to be healthier and the dough was like a brick, and tasted like well… wheat. I guess you need to put 3/4 cup whole wheat to every 1 cup of regular all-purpose flour…

Regardless, I re-made the dough with regular old-fashioned white flour and the cookies WERE AMAZING. (more…)
