My husband, Joe and I always dreamed about creating a Hungarian heritage cookbook of our family's most cherished and beloved recipes since we got married in 1966. We started adding and collecting our recipes to my great-grandmother's collection. Just before my birthday in 1990 we wanted to surprise our daughter Helen with a little booklet of our most beloved recipes. Because Joe and I treasured our family traditions and recipes so much and were extremely proud of our Hungarian heritage, we decided to name our little recipe booklet The Treasured Hungarian Family Recipes®. We also wished to honor our Mother's so the subtitle became Our Mom's Hungarian Heritage Recipes™.
We planned on publishing a full size cookbook for our Silver Wedding Anniversary in 1991. However Life stopped us and we kept postponing our little project. The accident and, and years later, the death of the love of my life, my husband Joe, put the brakes on my creativity once again until my daughter Helen, told me in no uncertain terms in 2010 that life is too short to waste it.
Trying to fit all my recipes into one book, became an impossible task. I also wished to honor my Mother-in-Law and my Mother by using the subtitle that Joe and I dreamed up so many years ago, as a title of one of my latest cookbooks, Mom's Hungarian Heritage Recipes™
Today I have 7 English language, 1 Hungarian language cookbooks and 10 e-cookbooks / baking books, but dozens of recipes are still collection dust, waiting for another book to give them home...
My great-great Grandmother started this lovely family tradition of passing down her favorite recipes for the next generation to enjoy. I recall many lovely memories in my Grandmother Apollonia Swartz' kitchen, with the mesmerizing aromas all around me and wanting to learn all her secrets, that she was always more than willing to share.
I learned most of my basics from her and my Mother as a very young girl. By the time I was 12-13 I regularly cooked to ease my Mother’s burden. It was fun after all. I did not think of cooking or prepping as a chore. Even today, my favorite hobby is cooking and sharing my recipes with everyone through my cookbooks and free cooking videos on Youtube and my websites.
