I am also a Longaberger Consultant and love to collect baskets and pottery for the Hrivnak household.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook family favorites, the recipes that are tried and true favorites that we love.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our family has a Christmas Eve tradition of eating an evening meal of sweet soup, (split pea) Sour Soup, (Sauerkraut) Pirogues with sour cream and unleavened bread with honey. My children swore that when they had their own households they would never eat these things again. Now both son and daughters families have the same traditions.
My cooking triumphs
My mother in law makes a Nut Roll recipe with sour cream dough. I am originally from California and got married and moved to Pennsylvania and have adopted the same traditions of my husband’s family. I now can make Nut Roll with the best of them.
My cooking tragedies
I made Christmas Peanut butter Cookies using butter shortening instead of the butter is called for and they were so flaky, they fell apart. I won't make that mistake again!
