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.
If you like chili, or baked beans, you will enjoy this Calico Beans recipe.
It is very tasty and inviting on a cold winter day, or at a barbecue. You will not be slaving over the stove mixing it endlessly, since once you are done with all the prep work, it cooks slowly on its own, in the slow cooker. The smell of fried bacon and barbecue sauce plays games with everyone’s taste buds.
One of my husband’s favorite meals is Beef/Veal Goulash, served with garlic butter mashed potatoes. I love cooking, but I really do not like to spend all my time in the kitchen, so my pressure cooker comes in handy for this recipe, since it takes only 17 minutes to cook this meal.
Even though I was an avid soccer mom for many years, my family enjoys watching football, and I prepare lots of tasty snacks during football season. Pizza and chicken wings are always on the menu, but Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip is a must. It is a delicious, quick, and very easy to make dish, and you never have to worry about storing left overs, since there won’t be any.
If you like sausage, and kraut, you will love this combination all in one meal.
Kraut takes a while to cook in a regular pot, but with a pressure cooker your meal will be ready in 15 minutes. My family enjoys this meal served with boiled potatoes, tossed with butter and dill.
