Somewhere early on this Lent I decided this Easter was going to be a little different. I think my decision had something to do with a conversation I had with my mom while looking over some old holiday recipes. She remarked how she could no longer make all those special foods like she used to and I could hear the sadness in her voice. I think it was at that point I decided to try my hand at some homemade traditions....homemade Babka and homemade Paskha.

If this comes out like Mom's, I'll be thrilled!
It was messy, it was time-consuming, but it was fun. Hopefully, the end result will be worth it. I think it will be. I'll know in a week when Orthodox Easter arrives.
