and come next week, we will have our very own Karol!!
Yup, I've talked about it enough:
my son is taking the name of our newest saint
Sunday, which was a day of Divine Mercy indeed, we whipped up this
tasty ( and pretty easy ) recipe that Jessica featured at Catholic Cuisine.
Please visit her detailed post for the interesting story behind our JPII's
favorite dessert as well as the how-to on this polish pastry,
Here's what you need for the custard filling:
2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
A pinch of salt
6 egg yolks
And, as you can see, I did not make my own pastry dough,
but chose instead to but filo dough shells, which were delicious!
A few shots of the process:
Bring to a boil:
Submerge in ice water:
And, the finished product...
dessert on Divine Mercy/Canonization Sunday,
served on dishes given to me many many years ago by
a dear family friend who also had a love affair with our Karol!
Imagine the party in heaven!
Thank you, Jessica, for sharing the tutorial on Kremowska pastry!
Next week, I'll be blogging our big day:
my son's confirmation...
as well as some fitting dinner and dessert treats for the occasion.
Kremowska will be among the goodies served.

Pope Saint John Paul II,
please click to my friend, Tracy,
at A Slice of Smith Life.
Her family basked in Divine Mercy Sunday and the canonization of
two popes by two popes on this historic day with many
activities, treats and with much prayer!
If you are looking for just the perfect craft to do
after reading and learning about our St John Paul II,
please click to Jennifer at Catholic Inspired...
she and her daughter created an adorable
( and easy according to her step by step!)
liturgical ornament for our newest saint which you don't want to miss!
We were graced to be in our pontiff's presence a number of times.
Here, in America, twice.....once, in Rome.

this beautiful Faith,
if you are Catholic and have not been involved in the
practice of the Faith but would like to come home,
there is nothing that would make your Church happier!
Please contact me and I'll put you in touch with
a priest who can assist you!
