    Could this blog get any better? I am loving these family heritage recipes and stories. Shulie's story about her father is most interesting, and the recipe; yummy.

    what a wonderful story. . Shulie, your dad sounds like he was a great, sweet man and hard worker. . isn't it so wonderful how our parents show us unconditional love and a good work ethic? at least that is what I have learned from my parents and father. thank you for sharing!

    Thank you for sharing the story of your father, Shulie! My grandfather was adopted and he was as particular about his PJs as your father was. Too funny! He, too, would stay in his 'lounge wear' past Noon on some days if he didn't need to leave the house when we would stay over night at grandma's house. He always made us kids laugh, too. I must make your shakshuka recipe soon. It looks scrumptious! Thanks again for sharing!

    Oh, I loved this post, Lora! Shulie is such a talented writer (and cook) and I love learning about her dear father. I met her through you…so thank you for connecting me and for both of your friendships!!! xo

    Loved this post Lora and Shulie! You've both inspired me with your straight forward heartfelt stories about your fathers. I lost my father this past July and am still feeling the waves of disbelief and memories that pop up -my father also had the 100% cotton pajama thing and a gift of pjs from Nordstrom was always appreciated 😉 thanks again 😉

    Shulie, thanks for sharing your beautiful, heartfelt, and touching story about your dad. Such vivid memories of his favorite dish, which totally reminds me of a Hungarian style sauce, where we also use the paprika (which happens to be Hungarian)…and the tomatoes, and add the eggs in the end.

    Your photos are superb, and the recipe is amazing. I've been wanting to make this dish for the longest time, and now…I got the privilege to have you share this wonderful recipe. Thanks for sharing! Hugs,

    Lora, I love this #foodmemory guest post series you started…I would love to share a very special one about my father (your maternal grandfather)…and his favorite dish that he made for us just about every Sunday!
    Congratulations, wonderful guest post! xoxo

    Aww Patty, so sorry for your loss. It's so heartbreaking. Love that your father and mine shared the love for comfy pj's. Looking forward to your writing. It's so cathartic! Your comment is really very touching.

    TY Elizabeth. Isn't it funny how universal this dish is and each culture can claim it as its own?! Love Hungarian paprika btw. Your words are so meaningful to me. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. 🙂

    Such an interesting story Shulie. Your dad went through really hard times, yet managed to leave a smiling mark on you. That's amazing. Love this post! Those look incredible for a brunch, and you reminded me of the 100% cotton pijamas my ex husband wore, lol!
