Just reading Emily’s recipes makes us hungry.

It also brings back memories of how many of our Slovak mothers performed magic when the cupboard was bare and they faced the big spoons and empty stomachs of a hungry family. They would turn to our Slovak Dish of Halusky. A potato and Flour dish that could be topped with fried cabbage, Skvarky, or cottage cheese. The Halusky dish is certainly the equivalent of today’s Kraft dinner but it is much nicer. We challenge readers of this news letter to submit their favourite recipes of this great dish and special toppings.

In the pages of The Slovakia Heritage Magazine, 151 Colebrook Drive, Rochester, New York, 14617-2215, USA, Dec. 1994 issue, is a recipe for Halusky from by Igor Gazdik.

Please refresh your memories and send us those special innovations to this recipe.

God We love Halusky.

As we are now in the middle of preparations for our Christmas celebrations , memories of our mothers preparing those special Christmas Kolace , and other treats are nostalgically returning. Please send us any that you know. We wish to preserve them.

Thankyou Emily for your fine contribution of recipes.

Lets keep more exciting recipes coming.
