Sauerkraut Soup with Cannellini – Ukrainian Kapusniak Recipe

Europeans love their soup, as anyone who traveled to Eastern Europe would agree that soup in part of every lunch and dinner menu.

Soups are quite simple to prepare, and very nutritious as well.  You can make your own stock, as the base for every soup, or use the ready-made available at your grocer.  There is such a variety of broth now…chicken, beef, vegetable, low-fat, low sodium….so it makes it that much easier to get your soup cooking together.

Portobello Veggie Burgers – Vegetarian Recipe

The Great Lent is here already, at least for the Eastern Rite Catholics, therefore I will share my new meatless recipe for Portobello Veggie Burgers.

These burgers are not only great for lent, but anytime when you feel like taking a break from eating meat.

Easy Garlic Bread – Recipe

I used to purchase frozen Garlic Bread, or even the fresh one in the bakery section of my grocer.

However, once I tried making it at home, I am sold on it, and it is my favorite accompaniment with pasta dishes, or tossed salads.

It is so simple to make, since you use ready made French Baguette, or Italian Bread.

Ukrainian Kanapky – Open Face Sandwiches

These open face sandwiches, which we call “Kanapky”, or better  know to my children as “church sandwiches” (since they always enjoyed them at a church bake sale), are very presentable on a party table, and extremely tasty.

You can use the full slice of bread, for a filling kanapka, but for parties I prefer to cut each slice of bread in half, or even into thirds as for tea party kind of appetizers.  Then you use the other ingredients in proportion to your bread size.

They are so delicious…almost addictive… and you will not just have one…I assure you of that.

Homemade Pasta – Recipe

Making your own pasta is quite simple, and probably much easier than you ever imagined.

It’s even easier with a pasta maker, especially if you want to make spaghetti.  However, today I am making it the old fashion way; the way my mom used to make it.

Fresh pasta tastes so much better than the store bought selections, plus how inexpensive it is to make.
