My brother got this recipe from his best friend's mother when he was a teenager, passed it on to me when I was in my 20s, and it has been a favourite ever since. Even my kids like it, if I omit the peppers.
This is a recipe my mother used to make, that she got from my Oma. While it looks fancy, it is actually pretty easy. Rouladen is a thin slice of round steak, thin enough that you can roll it easily. Yummy German cooking!

This is the most aromatic and fragrant of all Indian spice blends. Used throughout North India in all types of dishes — from appetizers and soups to yogurt salad and main courses — this blend is indispensable to Moghul and North Indian cooking. It is widely available, but the homemade version is more fragrant and, of course, fresher.
This recipe is a lot of work, but is definitely worth it. Chopping everything in advance makes it go smoother. Ghee is butter that has been slowly melted so that the milk solids and golden liquid have been separated. Vegetable oil can be used but ghee gives a more authentic taste
I have always loved butter tarts and this recipe from Food that Really Schmecks is my absolute favourite. The pastry crust recipe is from the bottom of the shortening box. It only works if you make the whole batch up at once but it refrigerates and freezes well! I use this pastry crust in all my pies, whether it's butter tarts or lattice crust apple pie, or tourtieres.
I got this recipe from my dad 20 years ago, via my brother after a visit to California. My dad is gone now and this recipe makes me think of him and miss him, but it also makes me happy to be able to share it with my family. Slow-roasted, it’s fall-off-the-bone good, and the skin so yummy and crispy! My kids and I fight over it!
First time I made it the odour when blending just about knocked me over! Something about the combo of wine and garlic and bread ... But the flavour is totally awesome! In fact my family complained that I didn't make enough!
