Important things in life: food and grandmas
Found this lovely photo-set about grandmas and food they make: http://www.demilked.com/delicatessen-with-love-gabriele-galimberti/

My father-side grandma was always praised for her pancakes, pickled mushrooms (going to forest with her and picking mushrooms was part of a joy) and meat-jelly.

My mother-side grandma baked a lot.
Her specialities were fried things: donkey-ears, stork-nests and pig-fangs. Everyone has a little bit different dough and a way of cutting and folding, all were fried in oil and richly covered with sugar-powder.

Long-ones with twists are pig-fangs, more square-shaped in top were called stork-nests.
She also made nut-shaped cookies with fillings and mushroom-shaped cookies she coloured with sugar-frost. I am still amaze how workful the processes of making those things were but she bakes a lot.

Which reminds me - I have to call her tomorrow and ask (again) for stork-nests recipe. It is criminally sugary and fatty like hell but tastes like... like childhood. :)

What were your grannies' specialities?

As a matter of fact, it's not the most critical thing in life we have more vital things than this, however, this likewise considered as one of the essential things and on the off chance that you don't complete your school you won't land a decent position that is the most imperative thing! what's more, Essay Editing Service, I am likewise hunting down a college so I tell this in the event that anything isn't right please excuse me for telling this.
