Plum Dumplings-Szilvás Gombóc...and a Guest Post


I am so thrilled and honored that Roxana of A Little Bit of Everything asked me to guest post for her, while she is vacationing in her homeland, Romania. She has asked some of us who was born outside of the United States to guest post for her, I almost felt as if I'm not going to be able to fulfill this request, because although I was born in Hungary, I did not grow up there. I was 8 years old when we came to the United States. My maternal grandmother, and mother was also born in Romania, what was considered part of Hungary up until after WW1. They were originally from Transylvania...yes, the actual home of Count Dracula, from the 15th century, whose castle still is in existence, as a big tourist attraction. Transylvania/Romania is still in very much existence, and I still have most of my relatives living there, whom I have never met, also, in Hungary as well!

I feel as if I know Roxana in person, because of the background connection.We seem to have had this special bond instantly, since we first met through our blogs.
Thank you Roxana, for your invitation to guest post for you, and I hope I don't disappoint you with my traditional Hungarian dish, that I actually learned how to make when I was a young "mommie"...from my Hungarian aunt, right here in Florida, which was over 30 years ago!

If you would like to get the recipe, please stop over to Roxana, also know as Green Girl! You will find other delicious and amazing desserts, and yummy yeast rolls...which is her "forte."

  4. Ahh I am Hungarian and my sisters and I are going to tackle some of my grandmothers Hungarian recipes this weekend. I have been googling like crazy to get visuals and understand what some of the ingredients are. I grew up eating and loving Hungarian food and I want my kids to know it as well. These look fantastic. I will be checking back.

  16. Elisabeth, these look amazing, just what I would love for dessert. Isn't it wonderful that us bloggers can't find friends from all over the world and food brings us closer together. I love family recipes from our heritage and you were lucky to have someone show you how to make them. Can't wait to check out the recipe!
