  • I am a Polish gal, parents came from Kracow in 1917. Love to cook Polish dishes, known for my yearly “Polish Night” where I invite many friends to share at my table.(I have people telling me they hope to get invited next year.) Married a German guy, and he loved my cooking.

  • This looks just like the one my mom made but withou the buttermilk. Do you have the directions my recipe was hand written and is over 45 years old and almost illegible.
