Rye bread is a hearty staple in German homes. This recipe makes a delicious rustic loaf with a thick, crunchy crust and soft, flavorsome interior. I've given easy directions for making it using a KitchenAid stand mixer. Adapted from a recipe by Sunset Breads (1995)
If you've ever been to Germany, then you will be familiar with the ever present "Schnell Imbiss" stands. Similar to a hot dog stand, the Schnell Imbiss stand sells a variety of wurst dishes including the famous "Currywurst," a grilled bratwurst, cut into slices, and served with a ladleful of warm curry sauce. Curry sauce is also served over "pommes" (aka French Fries). This is the recipe, as told to me by a German Imbiss lady herself. It is really quite simple to make and keeps well in the fridge. The Imbiss stands always use mild curry powder to make this sauce. It tastes much better than the commerically prepared versions.
Schnecken means “snails,” which is what these coiled buns resemble. They are much stickier, puffier, gooier and generally more over the top than ordinary Cinnamon Buns. These are just drop-dead good! I had them at a friend’s house and stopped on the way home and bought the cookbook that the recipe came out of: How to Be a Domestic Goddess, by Nigella Lawson. I liked these even better than the Cinnamon Buns we drove for over an hour to get (only to wait in very long lines) at Knaus Berry Farm in Florida! Preparation time does not include time for letting dough rise(One hour and 20 minutes).
A delicious recipe using red cabbage, fragrant spices & apples or pears; whilst this is happily cooking away, the spicy smell pervades the kitchen & indeed the rest of the house and heralds the start of my festive baking & freezing season - who needs expensive pot-pourries! Not only is this dish delectable to eat alongside turkey, pork, beef and hams in particular - but the colour is just gorgeous, a rich jewelled ruby red! This cabbage can be kept warm for long periods, reheated and also freezes very well, making it a very well behaved recipe!!
This was really surprisingly good for such a quick and easy meal. The flavors blended well together and Dave added the mustard on the side. I thought this would serve 4 but Dave was hungry so I stated between 2-4 servings. He kept taking the brats out of the pan while I was cooking. From American Home Town Cookbook made my way.
I tried this recipe from the Every Food magazine and DH and I just loved it. The flavor, with garlic, parmesan, and a wine sauce, take it beyond the average schnitzel recipe. It's also fairly quick and easy enough for a week night meal.
These are very thin pancakes and they are a real favourite of my kids! I usually have to make a double recipe to make sure my husband and I will get some too! My kids love these and in Mennonite tradition these are eaten as a supper! Funny eh?
