    Ukrainians are known for eating potatoes in almost every one of their meals. Even though I've lived longer in U.S. than I have in Ukraine, I still have a weakness for traditional Ukrainian foods. We don't eat as much potatoes as we used to, but when we do, they are a real treat. I especially love this dish, because of all the mushroom and bacon flavors, seriously, so delicious. And it's so easy...

    I can't believe that it's already August, I can't believe it's Friday... and I can't believe I am saying this, because only old people think that days fly by, right? So as the summer started, we've had a nanny come over and stay with the boys. She is amazing and most days boys are very good at behaving, while she is with them. To give them some inspiration for their behavior, we've created a...
