Stuffed Peppers with Rice and Mushrooms – Vegetarian Recipe

Green Peppers are one of those vegetables that taste great raw, or cooked. I like all color peppers, green, red, orange, yellow, as a raw vegetable used in salads, or with dips. I also would like to share this recipe for peppers served hot, as a main meal, or a side dish. Peppers, like cabbage rolls, may be stuffed with meat or vegetable stuffing, so I selected the vegetable stuffing for this recipe.


Cabbage Rolls – Vegetarian Recipe & Technique

Most of you already are familiar with Cabbage Rolls, but to Eastern European cooks, they are known as Holupki. Holubtsi, or Golabki. All Cabbage Rolls may look the same, yet be very different, depending on the filling used to prepare them. The most popular filling consists of cooked rice mixed with ground beef and spices; however you can also use rice or buckwheat mixed with mushrooms, spiced up mashed potatoes, or a vegetarian filling, which I will introduce in this recipe. Cabbage Rolls are not the easiest dish to prepare, since it requires a lot of prep work beforehand, especially the cabbage, but if you love them, it’s well worth the effort.


Angel Wings (Khrusty)- Recipe

Angel Wings, known as, Khrusty, or Chrusciki, are a very popular and dainty dessert specialty found in Polish bakeries, European specialty stores, or even some grocery stores. They are very light and airy, and quite simple to make. My granddaughter already loves these, so I have to make sure these are on hand when she is visiting.

Suburbs or Cities – Love Them Or Leave Them

Recently I read an article, Suburbia R.I.P, written by Michael Cannell, leaving me with a feeling that living in the suburbs is a dying dream….” In the wake of the foreclosure crisis many new subdivisions are left half built and more established suburbs face abandonment”. There might be some truth to this statement, since the downturn in our economy affects everyone, including the suburbs. The new home constructions did slow down considerably, but I have yet to see “half built” abandoned subdivisions, or totally abandoned suburbs.
