Having my mom with us for the past 5 months has been such a blast. Not only did we get some great help with C and sometimes a much need it break from stress, but she has been willing to re-create some of my childhood goodies.
We made some plum and walnuts jam, apricot jam as well as "zacusca", this Romanian veggie spread that is delicious on freshly baked bread or crackers. And while I was tasting all the goodies, I realized that eating them is not what I am looking forward to the most (though they certainly are delicious), it's the way the house smells when you cook and make all this, it's the memories of easier and simpler times of childhood!
