Pizzelles

One of my favorite places to go after Christmas every year was to visit my relatives in Toronto, Ohio…a small town along the Ohio River whose most famous son may have been Robert Urich. The reason I loved to go…beyond seeing my relatives…was that many people in the area recognized Orthodox Christmas and the decorations […]

These were one of my dad’s favorite cookies.  Mom made at least a couple of batches of them every Christmas. She had two recipe in her collection.  They were almost identical.  […]

Coconut Macaroons

I love coconut macaroons, but I always bought them. This was my first attempt to make coconut macaroons. Turns out, they are fairly easy and very delicious. As they were not part of my family recipe collection or experience, they required some research. First, I went through many of my cookbooks, then I checked for […]
