Lena Yost nee Bowers baked these simple, fluffy and fragrant sugar cookies and would be pleased that her recipe, a family favourite, has been passed down for three generations and counting.

When my new girlfriend (now wife) was told that my family was serving traditional Romanian ‘Creamed Chicken’ as part of the holiday meal she felt a little nauseated in anticipation as she imagined what that might taste like.  As she politely tried a small portion at supper it immediately became a ‘Where has this been all my life?!?’ experience for her.  Simple food made well is some of the best food you can have.

Mary Cojocar nee Banda was a good cook and it was a pleasure to be a guest at her house during holidays or any event.  Cabbage rolls were always served.  Here we have her preferred recipe.
