MERRY CHRISTMAS!


As magical as my own Christmases have been in Budapest, it made no sense to isolate our children in Canada. The baby Jesus and the angels had to go. We had no choice but to adapt the Santa theme. They had no doting grandparents, fun loving aunts and uncles and cousins to celebrate with. We tried to compensate. Christmas broke us each year; we were the only ones putting presents under the tree. We held onto the Christmas Eve tradition when everyone was wide awake for magic. Jim took them up the street looking for Christmas lights. On top of the hill the blinking red light was thought to be Rudolph’s nose. When I put the last package under the tree, I opened up the front door and yelled “Come quick you are going to miss Santa!” They hurried home, but Santa was always gone by the time they fell through the front door. The magic now carries on with the grandchildren.

It began with posting a few recipes on line for my family. "zsuzsa is in the kitchen" has more than 1000 Hungarian and International recipes. What started out as a private project turned into a well visited blog. The number of visitors long passed the two million mark. I organized my recipes into an on-line cookbook. On top of the page click on the cookbook to access the recipes. I am not profiting from my blog, so my visitors will not be harassed with advertising or flashy gadgets. Feel free to cut and paste my recipes for your own use. Publication is permitted as long as it is in your own words and with your own photographs. However, I would ask you for an acknowledgement and link-back to my blog. This is to my old on-line friends and visitors: policing the comment section for spam and answering questions has become a chore. Good wishes to you all, happy cooking and keep on feeding your people with good food.
