    Thank you.
    It was quick.
    Now question is - where to buy this stuff?

    I'm sure you can get it all at your local grocery store.

    Did you check the supermarket, in the same corner where all peppers and ground garlic are hanging?

    If you buy a basic spice rack from a department store, it should contain all of those and more. And come on a cool little spinny thing!

    I would have to buy several of those racks, I guess..
    I need quite a lot of those spices, which you kindly translated for me. I am going to bake pryaniki (Пряники) for the contest, so it should be enough for everyone to taste... and do not forget the family...

    But anyways, thanks for the tip, Fantom.

    I just realized: the word "пряник" originates from the word "пряный" - "spicy" Never notised before...

    Wow, how big is it going to be?
    not that this is related in anyway, but I spent all day trying to make Russian Easter Bread with my Russian friend two years ago, about 5 loaves... I'll stick with hard-boiled eggs and marshmallow candy!

    "Не поделитесь ли вы своим рецептом?" - It's even better.

    Если получится вкусно - конечно поделюсь. А если одержу победу в конкурсе - поделюсь со всем миром. Приз - размещение рецепта на обратной стороне тарелки для Santa's cookies.

    I haven't decided yet if I really want to participate..
