Happy Easter, Friends

Rose Flowers

There’s not going to be a lot of baking or cooking in my house this Easter. I’m busy chasing and catching Ivanka all around the house as she is always leaning like the Tower of Pisa. She started to crawl some time ago and she now gets up on her feet, however she doesn’t know a safe way to get out of this position except for simply releasing her hands and falling down on her back - ouch! There’s no safe place at home to leave her alone for a single moment, so I like to go to someone else’s place and let the baby explore a new space - this distracts her from trying to get up on her feet for some time. So, I’m looking forward to visiting my parents this Sunday and enjoying a happy baby and a family meal with all the traditional Easter treats.

I am hoping to make a new kind of Paskha this time though - please ask Stano to help me with the baby on Saturday! ;-) This is going to be a pretty unconventional Paskha, while Mom will be making the traditional kind.If I succeed, I will post about it after Easter. For now, I just wanted to refresh the two recipes we use every Easter. I don’t usually advertise our recipes, but if you’d like to make something Russian this Easter (why not - Orthodox Easter coincides with the Catholic holiday this year), both of these are really worth trying!

      Thank you Tanvi! I hope Ivanka will help me with Easter egg decoration when she grows up - I love that!

  5. Alina, have you bought those beautifully pained eggs - not made them yourself, surely?!

    • Alina says:

      Katrina, I made them myself - I used to decorate Easter eggs every year but now of course I don’t have enough time anymore… I normally use an illustrated book of Russian fairytales as a reference + my own fantasy of course!
