  5. These look wonderful, Greta. I would also love to know more about them as I have never heard of paskas before. Happy Easter.

  6. First of all, YUM!

    Today I was presented the "Ancestors Approved" award by Dionne Ford of the Finding Josephine Blog. As a recipient of this award I’m supposed to list ten things I have learned about any of my ancestors that has surprised, humbled, or enlightened me and pass along the award to ten other bloggers who I feel are doing their ancestors proud.

    I have chosen to present you with the award. You can pick up the picture of the award on my blog post at

    Thanks for sharing your ancestor stories!

  7. Oh, Greta, I wish this weren't a wordless Wednesday post. Please tell us more about this delicious-looking food! And maybe you could give us the recipe, too, please?

  8. Thanks - I should give credit to the baker, my husband, as well as to the "braid-maker," my daughter. Mary, Linda, and Nancy - Paskas are an Easter bread made by many Eastern Europeans, especially Slavs (Russians, Ukrainians, Ruthenians, etc.). They have a lot of eggs, which is something that is not eaten during the Great Fast, so they go into the Easter basket along with ham, sausage, and hrutka, aka "egg cheese." I will try to post the recipe for Paska this weekend.
