Imagine walking downstairs in your home and being enveloped by the sweet aroma of sautéed onions, as fond memories of Easter Sunday pierogies come to mind. Such is the tradition for the Baydala family. This year, five of the six Baydala siblings worked with their dad, Troy, and sister-in-law Jeanette to make this special holiday dish. May you be blessed with years of family traditions and fun!
Call it mother’s intuition. Sixteen years ago, Susan Tyler knew better when the obstetrician told her to go to the hospital. Minutes later, her water broke and, with one hand on her baby’s head, she caught him as he swooshed out. Belated happy birthday to Justin Tyler. You’ll always have the story of your “special delivery.”

Bravo to all cast members on a job well done!
