Garden of Eatin' | Aunt Honey's Homemade Easter Pie

One of my most favorite foods to enjoy at this time of year is Easter Pie.  A mixture of meats and cheeses baked into a delicious homemade crust, this pie brings back memories of family togetherness during Holy Week cutting everything up and putting it together.  While our family is now scattered, I am blessed that my seventy-eight, almost seventy-nine-year-old aunt still continues this family tradition and shares it with me.  Here is her recipe...

Thursday Things to Eat | Nana's Cheese Haluski

Growing up poor, my mother and grandmother cooked us traditional foods that they grew up with that helped feed many empty tummies. This is one of those meals that left us filled to the rim.

Of course now when you hear the word Haluski it conjures up a bow-tie pasta noodle with cabbage dish, which is delicious and great too.

For those of us who spend two hours cooking the "real" Haluski we just smile and say that other kind of Haluski is for quick meals.

We had both Cheese Haluski as well as Cabbage Haluski made this, homemade way. My grandmother made a Prune too but I digress.

Here is how I made the Cheese Haluski for dinner tonight. Oh, and shhh, don't tell Nana that I am sharing her recipe.

Wegmans Herb Garden Kitchen Accessories | January 2015

January 20, 2015
 
I am a huge fan of all things Nature and Gardens and as soon as I saw these pieces in a Wegmans grocery store out of my area I had to have them.  At first I grabbed two plates and two mugs but I had to go back today for more!
I haven't changed out my dining table after Christmas' transition but the cream candles and roses and purple accents centerpiece looks so pretty with these plates.  I have a large purple hydrangea centerpiece in a green pot that will work perfectly with these into spring.
