Stuffed Cabbage Rolls
Watching my Slovak Grandmother for years, I have to say that although this recipe is similar to that which many people make, it wasn't according to her, authentic. She would add a clove of grushed garlic into the meat mixture which would be 1/2 pound ground pork and 1/2 pound ground meat. Instead of condensed tomato soup for the sauce, lay the cabbage rolls on a bed of drained (not rinsed) sauerkraut. Cover with tomato puree, add two small pieces of kielbassi to the pot and cook until the rolls reach an internal termperature of at least 165 degrees F. She has since passed on, however, the taste of her Stuffed Cabbages, live on in this recipe.

Banana Bread - Quick Bread for Machines
I found this bread to be absolutely the best banana bread that I have ever eaten. My children love it for a dessert. You have to be sure to follow the directions closely and check for doneness. For me it was quick, easy and economical. I would recommend this recipe for anyone with a bread machine with a dough and bake cycle.

Slow Cooker Carnitas
I made this one evening and not only did my family enjoy it, but I took some into work the next day where the bowl was emptied. Everyone thought it was great.
