    Your website is not going slow for me, unlike the previous commenter. But YES I wish every food blog would have that recipe round-up of the best, will have to try some of these here for sure, bookmarked. Reply

      Hi Julie, we are always working to improve the speed and provide a great user experience. Is it a specific page loading slow or is everything slow for you? We have various services working in the background to ensure pages are loading quickly and if there is an issue, I want to be able to fix it quickly. Thanks! Reply

      Ha ha you’re so nice 🙂 I don’t have any cookbooks yet. It’s on my life’s to-do list but I am holding off this year since we have a 2-year old that keeps us busy and we are building a house which is taking up any trace of free time we have right now. 🙂 Thanks for asking – that is a great compliment! Reply

    This list surprises me!! I’ve made a lot of your recipes but only two on the list (number one, and the creamy chicken and mushroom which was actually a flop for me). My favorites are your salads…Easter salad, olivye, all your cucumber/avocado salads, your borscht, and kielbasa crostinis.
    Oh, and how could I forget the “easy Plov”… SO good. I suppose I come here for more Slavic cuisine…if I want to make Asian I will go to an Asian food blog, but that is just me. Reply
