Tortas de Papa/Potato Cakes

Written by

The liturgical season of Lent has been my favorite since I entered the Church years ago.  I imagine it has something to do with the beauty of the intense time of penitential practice that had been missing from my spiritual life for so long.  One challenge that I encountered in the beginning was how to feed my family meatless meals since I was inexperienced in this area.  Fortunately, I have a devout Catholic mother-in-law who is also an amazing cook!  She passed this recipe onto me and I now enjoy making these for my husband and children during Lent.

Great Balls of Snow

Written by

I recently tried this recipe in the attempt to feed my children healthy food in the midst of Christmas season. My husband always laughs at me when I am baking because my greatest weakness (or strength) is that I do not follow any recipes. Please don't judge me. I often ask Our Lady to help me cook when I am in need, and it always turns out miraculously edible.

Strawberry Balls

Written by

Is this a main meal or a dessert? In my family, we always made it into a main meal, and we would make a lot of it. I come from Slovakia, and this is everyone's favorite traditional food, especially children's top favorite. Once strawberries or plums are in season, we would make 100 of these balls and freeze them for later. Because my parents came to town, we made some (only 60) out of frozen strawberries. They disappeared within couple minutes.

I learned to eat this delicious recipe when I met a friend from Syria and her mother was an excellent cook who introduced me to many new meals. Now my family and I enjoy it as one of our favorite snacks. The great thing about Hummus is that we can have it with anything; crackers, veggies, pita bread, in a wrap or in a sandwich.

This is a great alternative to traditional apple crisp. It’s very easy and quick to throw together and we love honey in our house so this has become a favorite.

Pumpkin-Spice Chili

Written by

This is a great fall time recipe. It is a nice variation of your typical chili and is easy to throw together. The recipe is flexible; when I make it, I seem to do it a little differently each time.
