This is a recipe that is near and dear to my heart. It is a recipe that my grandmother made many times for me when I came to her house. The recipe comes from an old cook book she received as a gift at her wedding. It was one of my favorites, and she’d serve them for dinner- what a treat right??

This summer was the first summer that she is no longer with us and while I have made these before for her and my grandpa, making them this year just for him felt nostalgic. Eating them with him and my brother around the table at which she used to sit at with us too eating them just last summer brought back many memories from childhood when life was bliss. It brought back memories even just from the previous summer when we had no idea how different our life would be this year. It is amazing how a dish can stir the heart and mind.

These pancakes are a traditional polish recipe that is not known as well as it should be. I have loved these my entire life, and now, not only do they satisfy my taste buds, but they also satisfy my heart 🙂

    Perfect too for this time of year, when the first hints of chill, make us yearn for comfort.

    Try as I might, though, I just can’t get your photo to materialize on my table, automatically. Guess I’m just going to have to try your recipe!
