For Easter, my family from Romania cooks up some amazing dishes! We make Cozonac cu nucă – Walnut Roll, a sweet bread filled with walnuts and raisins. Then there’s Pasca – Ricotta Cake, a yummy cheesecake with cottage cheese and eggs. We also enjoy Drobul, a tasty appetizer made with lamb. Mucenici are another favourite, sweet pastries shaped like the number 8. And we can’t forget Ouă roșii, hard-boiled eggs dyed red, a symbol of Easter.

These dishes are special to me because they connect me to my Romanian heritage and bring my family together during this holiday.

At Easter, I love finding all sorts of yummy dishes on the table! There’s sarmale, those delicious cabbage or vine stuffed rolls, plus stuffed peppers. And let’s not forget about the comforting meatball soup, homemade bread, and those tasty stuffed eggs!
