Fearless Females Blog Post: March 7: Favorite Recipe

March 7 — Share a favorite recipe from your mother or grandmother’s kitchen. Why is this dish your favorite? If you don’t have one that’s been passed down, describe a favorite holiday or other meal you shared with your family.


I finished this post a bit early!


[Note: This post originally ran during the Fearless Females series in March 2010]





My favorite meal was Palancinka (palacinky) – A Slovak crepe. I have this recipe in my book: Baba’s Kitchen: Slovak & Rusyn Family Recipes and Traditions. My grandmother used to make them for me for lunch – they were and remain one of my favorites!


I'm going to make them for Shrove Tuesday (instead of pancakes!)


Palacinky


1 c. flour

1-½ c. milk

2 eggs

2 tbsp. sugar

1 tbsp. oil

tsp. salt


Combine all ingredients beat until smooth.


Heat a small amount of Crisco in a skillet (an omelet pan works nicely). Pour a small amount of batter into skillet and spread around in the skillet (like making a crepe). Cook until brown, then flip over and brown other side. Turn onto a plate. Repeat until all batter is used.


Fill with cottage cheese and jelly (any flavor)*. Roll. Then drizzle some melted browned butter on top.
