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.
If you like hot chicken wings, but your stomach does not tolerate the deep fried wings you find everywhere, this recipe is for you. I made these for my last gathering and they earned a high mark.
You are also in charge of their flavor; you can make them as mild as you like, or as hot as you like. I personally like mine on a milder side, and not too much sauce. Also, I make sure my wings are clear of any lingering feathers, or extra pieces of fatty skin.
These Walnut Crescents are another favorite cookie recipe of mine. This dough is very similar to the Butter Balls recipe, but instead of almonds it uses ground walnuts.
It is a very simple recipe to make, but once baked, these cookies are very delicate and fragile For best results it is best to leave them on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes after baking to cool off, before gently removing them onto a cooling rack.
