  1. I’m cracking up at Oma’s stinky cream cheese-caper-anchovy-onion liptauer. This is a new one on me and I think it could probably use a different name. LOL

    These dips look fabulous!

  2. lol. I disagree Maureen, I long for “Oma’s stinky cream cheese-caper-anchovy-onion liptauer” just because if it’s name. I adore anchovies.

    What a fun theme for the celebration. Here in New Zealand we were discussing eating super American foods like hamburgers and hot dogs. Yet you’ve gone and turned that on it’s head with your amazing multi-cultural spread.

  3. Thanks, all. I’m not sure what Jerry’s Oma would think of the new name I’ve given her liptauer, but I owe her some credit for my great love of stinky foods. Her fondness for garlic and onions has passed through the generations, and our kitchen bouquet is homage to that.

  4. An amazing blog written by an amazing woman. Her style of writing draws one into the story she is re-creating. A wonderful creative talent. And the food and photographs are a delicious bonus 🙂 Well done!
