What's Cookin'?

Cooking has always been a big part of my up bringing. I would often gather in the kitchen and help my mom and grandmothers as a child.

I am very fortunate to come from a long list of GREAT cooks!!

With my maternal side cooking with a Brazillian and Greek influence and my paternal side cooking with a Austrian influence.

Need I say more?!?! LOL. We love food... and our love for it comes out in the taste.

In November, my father, POPS, and grandmother,Omi, came to visit the kids and I for a little over a week.

It was the first time they had stayed for a long trip and we were so glad they did. The children LOVED waking up and knowing Omi and Pops were there to play with.

During this stay, Omi taught me multiple family recipes including her famous bread recipe. I think we made 10-12 loaves of bread while she was here. & she also taught me her DELICIOUS Affel Strudle recipe.

The cameras were going non-stop during the stay... but the photos can't hold a candle to the memories we created that were captured in our hearts. I will forever cherish that time.
