*Grandma made the best homemade kolaches. ALL FLAVORS.
*Nothing in the world will ever taste like the Polish sausages (both fresh and smoked) from the basement oven and broiler at Grandma's.
*Don't even get me started on the little Easter lamb cakes and other baked kitchen goods from Grandma's.
* When Grandma got her cute lil' baker oven mitts on peezel pastry was a factory phase.
