Most of Faworski's are in Kalisz area, look at the map:

There is only 24 people with that last name in Poland, so it's not common name.

shawna2277

does this seem like a Polish or Russian name?

All those names you provided indeed sounds like Polish.

If anyone can be of help finding more info for them or in translating this passport, I would appreciate it very much.

You may scan this passport and we can help you with the translation. Finding out her birth place maybe could help with finding some relatives in the neighborhood area.

Food / vegetable dish with mainly eggplant and parsnip tomato, capsicum - recipe/name of dish [2]

Maybe it was something like couscous salad? makeyourdaytasty.blogspot.com/2013/05/kuskus-kuskus.html

Ingredients:

eggplant,
red capsicum,
couple small tomatos,
parsley (more common than parsnip in Poland),
hard cheese,
150g smoked chicken,
250g couscous,
1 tsp. thyme,
olive oil,
2 tsp. lemon juice,
salt, pepper

Cut and throw eggplant on the hot oil. Fry until browned. When our eggplant is ready, cut the other vegetables and throw.
Add the thyme then season to taste with salt and pepper.
Vegetables cook for about 15 minutes.

Couscous pours into a bowl and pour hot water, about 1 cm above the porridge. Let stand until couscous swells.

Cut chicken. When our vegetables and grits are ready, mix all ingredients. Add the lemon and fresh, chopped parsley. Mix.
If needed, you can season to taste with salt and pepper.
Finally sprinkle with grated cheese.
Done :)
