The photos in the banner at the top (only a shallow sliver of a much larger photo) are either from our home or our travels and are offered for their beauty alone (though a brain-teaser for me: "Where was that?").

  • 4 eggs
  • 1.5 cup milk
  • 1 cup flour


  • 4 packages of farmer’s cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • sugar to taste
  • vanilla to taste (aprox. 1 tsp.)

procedure; pancakes:

  1. Hand; mix together and let sit until you don’t see little bubbles on top.
  2. Pour .25 cup in [very lightly greased] sauce pan and quickly coat pan lightly. Quickly pour out excess batter, leaving a lip (Shanna writes:”I’ll show you during our blintz lesson!”) It should be lightly brown on top.
  3. Use the edge of a sharp knife to lift up edge of pancake and pull out gently with your fingers. Line up pancakes on a piece of was paper or clean dishcloth.

procedure; filling:

  1. Beat together with mixer until blended. Place 1 heaping tablespoon on each pancake. Fold up like a burrito. (Shanna writes: “I’ll show you!”)
  2. Fry up with butter until golden brown. Serve with sour cream and jelly.

Enjoy and share with your mom!
