Global Eats: Hungary

For the second meal for my Global Eats project, I traveled to the Central European country of Hungary.  I brought the other two members of the Hungry Trio along with me.

Raspberry Sweet Rolls

I am now home and back to work, but I had a lovely few days home with family for the holidays.  Christmas is a big celebration in my family.  We love giving each other thoughtful gifts and spending time together eating and being merry.  Well, the being merry part is hard for me because I…
