    This is super easy Hungarian Transylvanian comfort food. Cheap, easy, and delicious. Serve this with fried eggs or sausage for a nice meal.

    Recipe #159018

    This is a really easy one. In Romania this is most commonly eaten with fish or grilled pork or chicken. It is GREAT with many things though (french fries, pizza etc.) This is a slightly more complicated version that is more common in Transylvania. In the south the ingredients are usually just garlic, salt, and water. A mortar and pestle are most traditional but you can also use a garlic press or very finely mince the garlic as well.

    Recipe #207270

    My mom makes this and its also very common in the Portuguese restaurants of SE New England. This is fantastic with spaghetti and even better with roasted potatoes.

    Recipe #215381

    This is my favorite Romanian dish. It is popular in summer and during Ortodox lent, when hen you can't eat meat. The recipe can vary a the late summer people put in eggplant sometimes, in the earlier summer zucchini. Use what is best for the season. Make sure to follow the cooking order so that nothing gets too mushy. Serve this with rice. Some people even add a bit of rice towards the end of the cooking time.

    Recipe #191676

    These are delicious!!! The best ones I've ever made. The secret is to knead the mixture for about 10 minutes. Great on the grill or baked in the oven.

    Recipe #187233

    This is a very light and easy soup. Super Hungarian and surprisingly good.

    Recipe #160739

    This is just too good. It takes a bit of doing (pounding meat) but it is impressive and delicious.

    Recipe #159063

    This is a great Latin American sweet and spicy ground meat dish. It's great served plain with rice and beans, but also can be a filling for empanadas or tacos. and is EXCELLENT in baked pasta dishes like baked ziti ot lasagna. The list of ingredients is long, but it is quite simple to prepare.

    Recipe #217937

    This is a Cape Verdean classic. I grew up in an area with a large Cape Verdean population and this was a common quick, easy, and traditional dinner at several of my friends' houses. For best results use Portuguese or Cape Verdean canned tuna in oil.

    Recipe #158917

    This is a nice cauliflower soup that my mother used to make. I've added my own touch to it. If you are not a vegetarian, chicken stock would be lovely instead of the vegetable.

    Recipe #262859

    This is a somewhat soupier version of Arroz con Pollo. I hadn't made it in years and I made it again last night. It's a hit!!

    Recipe #186581

    This is an adaptation of a recipe from my ex's mother. It is a Brazilian-style coconut flan. This is always a crowd pleaser at a dinner party. Fat-free condensed milk works fine (and with 5 eggs and coconut milk its probably a better idea anyway.)

    Recipe #159015

    This is very different from an American carrot cake, but I prefer it. It is very easy and always surprises people. A great everyday cake.

    Recipe #448194

    This is the specialty from here in Cluj. The Romanian name is Varza a la Cluj. It's a heavy dish good for the winter. Truly delicious but somewhat complicated. For the more authentic version use pickled cabbage.

    Recipe #159325

    I made this up the other night. It is GREAT!! Surprisingly great even. In Romania I use a sausage called Cirnati Paprika which is a bit like Spanish chorizo or Portuguese linguica. Use whatever spicy red sausage you can.

    Recipe #188268

    This is essential for any party in Romania. Serve it with sliced bread or crackers as part of a buffet. Be creative with garnishing. I like to use tomato roses and sliced hard boiled egg.

    Recipe #163477

    Romanian potato salad. Excellent with grilled meat or chicken cutlets. Pickled red peppers are more traditional but roasted are probably easier to find in the U.S.

    Recipe #163476

    This is a great Transylvanian soup!! I've written you the vegetarian version but it is very common to add some pork to this. The name for this in Hungarian is lucskos and in Romanian lucicosi. Make sure that you use fresh sauerkraut packed in plastic, not from a can.

    Recipe #287957

    This is a Syrian recipe that I love to make for parties. The pomegranate molasses is a product that is available in Arab shops. If it is not available try pomegranate juice. Adding lemon juice and sugar might work, but the color will be different.

    Recipe #215380

    This is the classic tomato sauce my grandmother used to make in summer with tomatoes from the garden. It's pretty standard but I still think it's the best. This makes a lot, which is great, because it freezes wonderfully.
