Crocus – Krókusz, azaz kerti sáfrány

When I first notice the crocuses starting to flower by the rock near to the entrance to our garden, I am joyfully surprised and immediately think “Spring is here!”  But it might be only early February and there is still more waiting for Spring to arrive.

My first cookbook – Az első szakácskönyvem

The first cookbook I owned is the one my mother gave me when I started living on my own after college.  It’s called Édeskönyv (Sweets) by Mária Hajková.  It’s a baking book written in Hungarian, more precisely translated into Hungarian from Slovak, published in 1957.  It promises that its 745 recipes will turn out good.  Some of my very favorite desserts come from this book.
