Honey Cake with Buttercream and Jam – European Recipe

This Layered Honey Cake recipe was born today due to the leftover buttercream from making my Shortbread sandwich cookies.

It is a very simple recipe to make, as you begin with baking a fluffy honey cake on a 13″ x 18″ cookie sheet, then cutting it into 3 even sections and layering them with buttercream and your favorite jam, then drizzling it with a glaze.

Standing Prime Rib Roast – Super Recipe

Prime Rib is one of my favorite “special occasion” dinner meats, because it is so flavorful, even with very little additional seasoning.

Prime Rib tends to be a little pricey, so I only make it once I find a nice piece reasonably priced. You want to buy a piece with at least 3 ribs (6-9 lbs), which will generously serve 5 – 8 people.

Uzvar – Dried Fruit Drink Recipe

During the summer months when fresh fruits and berries are in abundance I like to cook a fruity drink called Kompot.

At Christmas time I prepare a similar drink called Uzvar, which contains mostly dried fruits and berries, plus a few fresh apples.

Kompot and Uzvar may be sweetened with honey, however, I like to use a packet of Strawberry Jello powder for flavor, sweetness, and color.
