A little background
My grandmother (bubbe, bubbie, bubba) was born in a part of Eastern Europe that changed hands many times. From the time she was born its been in the hands of Hungary, Czechoslovakia, and now the Ukraine. She grew up in a small farming town and was in Auswitz during the Holocaust. After the war my great Uncle married her off to one of his buisness partners, and they traveled to American and settled in Tennessee. Since my parents divorced at a young age and my mother worked full time, I spent most of my free time at my grandparents' house. I grew up cooking these recipes along side my bubbie and I'm looking forward to sharing and revisiting the flavors of my childhood.
