Beef Stew – (Pressure Cooker Recipe)

Soup, chili, or stew is one of those satisfying comfort foods we look forward to on a cold winter day.   My grandchildren actually approve of this dish as well, so I occasionally prepare a batch for them to enjoy. Preparing beef stew on top of the stove, the traditional way could be time-consuming, but it only takes 15 minutes in a pressure cooker.

Italian Wedding Soup with Kale – Recipe

Italian Wedding soup is almost a whole meal in one bowl, as you have the broth, the veggies, the little meatballs, and pasta or rice.

My daughter makes this soup for her family, as her children love the little meatballs in the soup, so I also added it to my list of soups I prepare at home and often share with them.

Ukrainian Doughnuts – Anna’s Recipe

My mom made the best homemade doughnuts, using her European recipe.  Hers are so much better than the quick recipe I used before. 

Every Christmas Eve my mom joined us for dinner, and always brought in a huge platter of freshly made doughnuts.  We all are still reminiscing about those sweet memories.

Today I will share that recipe with you all, in memory of my mom’s baking and cooking.

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.
