This one screams old-timey, German, "down-home," and "comfort food" all at once! Sandwiches can be assembled ahead of time, covered & chilled. At meal-time, bake as directed. Thanks to *Midwest Living* for this awesome recipe and the excellent alternatives featuring midwest-region crops.
With home-grown apples from our trees out back, this is a great addition to the Saturday breakfast menu and the church coffee hour on Sunday morning! From the reverse-side of the October calendar page hanging in the office copy room.
Did you need a choice? Turn this into a smoothie at serving time by running it in the blender again OR scrape up spoonfuls into pretty serving dishes and drizzle with more WINE or gingerale. Either way--this is sure to capture your Valentine's heart! Just watch out for those brain-freeze headaches!!! COOKING TIME = CHILLING TIME.
Snowflakes drifting by the frosty windows, but inside we're listening to Christmas carols and decorating cut-out cookies. Dad comes and stomps the snow from his boots. Christmas Saturday, and we're ready for a piece of this special fudgy cake to load up our plates, with a glass of icy milk alongside. COOKING TIME includes chilling the cake. Thanks to Gooseberry Patch for another excellent recipe.
When our church decided to host a "German Reformation Night" dinner, I went hunting for authentic German recipes. Here is one that fits the bill. There are two ways to make the dumplings (explained below). Serving ideas suggested below too. Gushundheit--!
Gather the children when you pull these out of the oven--lots of oohs & aahs at the puffy cakes! My mother-in-law featured these on her restaurant breakfast menu, and usually makes them at least once when we're visiting. Serve with Honey Butter (below) or some warm fruit compote.
A few years ago in an on-line fabric swap, one of the gals from Germany shared with me that THIS is the kind of potato salad served in the Bavarian part of Germany today. Quite different from what we Americans call "German" potato salad. As my dad would say: puts hair on your chest!
Thanks to Jeff Smith (Frugal Gourmet) for including this in his Christmas book AND my family favorites for Christmas dinner. Tangy and sweet at the same time. EXCELLENT color for a holiday meal--jazzes up the table.
Just like Gramma used to make on the old wood-burning stove! Excellent to serve with bacon and eggs for breakfast or as a side-dish for a light supper during Advent. Similar to hash-browns ONLY BETTER!
Here's another one my mom made frequently during the winter for Sunday lunches; she'd get it ready before we left for church and then it would be ready to pop in the oven as soon as we arrived home afterwards.
Light, flakey dough surrounds the brown sugar-cinnamon-butter filling (with optional raisins or nuts); two perfect pans of exquisite breakfast fare. Serve with some pork links, glass of juice or milk, and you've got a down-home breakfast. My German gramma made these EVERY time our family visited...and she cooked 'em in her wood-burning cook-stove, too. Our 4-H club makes these for a concession stand fund-raiser and we sell-out EVERY year! Don't be put-off by the LENGTHY set of directions---they're written for the uninitiated (non-bread-makers) among us. I really WANT you to have fun making these, so I told you EVERYTHING you'll EVER want to know in how-to-make sweet rolls.
Here's something to warm 'em up after a shift in the deer stand waiting for the big buck OR those charming Christmas carolers on a frosty night OR for a tail-gating menu before a big football game on an autumn afternoon.
Every nationality has their own type of Slumgullion.This recipe has been passed down.Addition of V-8 juice when it became available on the market. Meat, macaroni, vegetables and spices. Can't get any better than that. A wonderful dish to serve the next day, add more juice if necessary to reheat.
Typical German comfort food. Use either Savoy Cabbage or simple green cabbage. Usually it is served with fried sausages or pork chops or topped with sliced heated kielbasa . - The original recipe calls for caraway instead of cumin.
