Winter Baking website is dedicated to traditional recipes from the Slavic Region of old Europe. The Slavic Region is represented by many nations including but not limited to Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Macedonia, Germany, Ukraine, Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and parts of Russia and others. In the 10th century the Czechs were more powerful, and in the 16th century Poland was the strongest nation in the area. Russia is now the most powerful Slavic country.

    This site and blog is about the home cooking of our grandparents in the old country that they brought over to the Americas. And who doesn’t enjoy pierogi, kielbasa or even Hungarian Chicken Paprikás?! Maybe you have a different version of a recipe and would like to share. Maybe you even have a story which you would like to share about your own Babchi, grandma, nana or whatever you called your grandmother.

     On this blog I hope to share with you my ideas and practices in the kitchen. Sometimes certain things done by others can lead to true and accepted short-cuts. Maybe even a more improved method of cooking and baking. At anytime you wish to add something or even find something I posted is incorrect, please feel free to comment. Cooking Slavic food, whether it be Polish, Czechoslovak, Hungarian or other countries in the region, is important to keeping our ethnic heritage alive in our traditions.
