Nanny Fela was the quintessential Yiddishe Bubbe to my children, Lawrence and Sally, who are now grown and married with children of their own.  They have the fondest memories of Nanny Fela's bubbeleh, which they always requested for breakfast when they visited her in her bungalow in the Catskills.  My son describes the bubbeleh as [...]
