Over the past few years, we've begun to gather quite the collection of recipes. To assure that they could be easily retrieved, a couple of years ago, we began to 'sticky' the threads at the start of each fasting season (since most were concocted with the fasts in mind).
This year, it became obvious that the threads were becoming too numerous to be stickied - forcing folk to scroll down through several to read other threads. After a bit of brainstorming, John came up with the idea of creating a new subforum for your gastronomic edification.
The majority of recipes are likely still to be focused on creative ways to feed your family during the fasts. However, you're certainly welcome to contribute recipes that you and your family enjoy at other times of year - particularly those for traditional foods representative of the many cultures, ethnicities, and nationalities that are the hallmark of this forum community.
It was a tough decision as to where the subforum should be located, since the proper ingredients and techniques for the making of pirohi are, indeed, matters of faith in some Pennsylvania communities. But, secularism won out and it was decided that the Town Hall Forum would be the best place to host it.
A thread on the subject of fasting itself is at the Faith & Theology Forum and will continue to be stickied there at the outset of each fasting season.
PS I found a few more threads in the dungeons - whoops, the wine cellars - and moved them to here as well. I'll be looking for others and adding them as I find them. If you aren't seeing the older ones, scroll down to the very bottom of the thread list and, under 'Display Options', use the dropdown menu next to 'Show topics' to choose 'from all dates'.
A side benefit of the really old threads - we old-timers see posts from folks who haven't posted here for a long time
and whose names bring back (hopefully) fond memories
