As you already read in my log, I am using a pressure cooker on regular basis, for cooking quick meals on a busy day. I will share a few of my favorite pressure cooker recipes. Here is one for Spareribs with Barbecue Sauce. My family likes this dish served with boiled, chunky potatoes, seasoned with sauteed onions, salt and pepper to taste.
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.
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.
I loved my mom’s cooking. She had limited resources, but always managed to prepare delicious meals for our family and friends.
I inherited her love of cooking and baking, and am a very lucky recipient of her hand-written recipes. She loved collecting and trying different recipes, as much as I do.
The family tradition continues, as my daughter and granddaughter also enjoy culinary arts.
During my childhood, soup was part of our daily menu. Sometimes it was the only thing on the menu, especially for lunch.
