Justine asked if my book had a recipe. It did.
So did Kowalski, in a way, because when he started -- I wonder if you might be able to take a look through the dessert/pastry section ... I don't exactly know what to call it, but -- I was all over it:
You mean the devils on horseback doughnut bites!
I had to peel back my language a little, but that is, in fact, what he meant. He brought them back from his great-aunt's house once. I had never had them, nor have I ever forgotten them. Holy smokes.
I grew up hating cabbage rolls, hating them. When I came back from college, my girlfriend's Lithuanian grandmother made a huge pan of them for us -- just like My Big Fat Greek Wedding -- because she heard we were vegetarians, ahahaha! It was one of those times when I realized it had just not been my (s)mother's best work. Same with lima beans! Yuk! Je reviens!
