Silesian Dumplings with Caramelized Onions Recipe

Ever since I moved away from home almost a year and a half ago, my diet has definitely changed. I no longer eat the ethnic food I was used to eating…mostly because I don’t know how to make it and my mom did all the cooking.

If you don’t know already, I’m half Persian and half Polish. I know how to make one dish from my Persian side but I’ve never tried making anything from my Polish side (aka my mom’s side).

That’s where my idea of creating a vision board came from. I have a lot of wants, needs, and expectations for myself and I think the best way to tackle them head on is by creating a vision board so I can see my aspirations and never lose sight of what I want.
