Harley, the founder of Strawberry Hill Povitica Company, began baking povitica bread in 1984 using his mother's traditional Slavic recipe. He passed away in 1999, but his children and dedicated bakers continue to prepare the dense, sweet bread following his mother's technique. They roll dough into paper-thin layers, pile on ingredients such as nuts and honey, and roll the layers into loaves that weigh 2.5 pounds each after they're baked. Patrons can choose from Kosher-certified flavors such as english walnut, cokolada, or chocolate-chip cream cheese. The bread can be enjoyed in a variety of ways: toasted and buttered, crowned with a scoop of ice cream, or sandwiched around a whole roasted turkey.
Meals by the Week takes the effort out of menu planning by providing families of all sizes with dinner menus and customizable shopping lists that make frugal use of local grocery store discounts. Each week, subscribers get a list of fresh recipes accompanied by a shopping list with ingredients linked to supermarket sale ads. The recipes come from a huge, ever-changing database to ensure subscribers get a variety of meals that might include beef-barley stew, oven-roasted chicken with lemon and garlic, shrimp fried rice, or pasta primavera. Each recipe also comes with suggested side dishes to simplify meal planning and food-fight prep. Once subscribers have their weekly menu set, they decide how many people each meal should feed: two, four, six, or eight. Then they can simply print out a shopping list and hit the grocery store, taking advantage of sale produce and dry goods along the way.
