Easter is one of my favorite holidays! My grandfather was Russian (and Easter is a big deal in the Russian culture) so we always had lots of family around with lots of traditions. My favorite one is Shashlik, or lamb skewers. I have watched my grandfather, mother and brother all make the delicious dish every year, but I have never had to make it myself (one of the perks of having so many amazing cooks in my family). This year Jeff and I decided to host Jeff's family for Easter. This meant that I was in charge of cooking the lamb. I was a bit nervous that I would ruin it and that Jeff's family wouldn't like the food (this was new to them). Luckily my mom and brother were just a phone call away.

I had a wonderful time sharing my family tradition with Jeff's family. Also, the good news is that I didn't ruin it and it tasted as good as ever! I can't wait to try making it again next year!
