Summa Borscht

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
My great grandmother made this soup and it is a family favorite. I'm so glad I found this saskatchewan recipe! It is almost the same, but hers starts with browning mennonite or farmer sausage in the pan, then drain the fat but keep the brown bits in the pan for flavor. She used to use fresh greens from her garden (nobody knows exactly what they were!) but I used fresh dill and parsley. She didn't use buttermilk either, just half and half at serving time. This is a delicious, hearty soup. My husband loves it (without half and half). My kids hated it the first time and loved it the second time, can't wait to see how the third time goes tonight!

Savory Bubble Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2006
Wow!!! My hubby absolutely loved this bread, his friends too. I used an angel food pan, and it came out looking like it came from a fancy bakery. I used crushed garlic right in the melted butter. The first time I made this I mixed the herbs with the butter, and ended up needing more, the butter soaked into the herbs. The second time I rolled them in butter then in the herb mixture, and they were quite messy, and I got a bit too much herb on the balls, cause they were so wet. Next time I will mix the herbs with the butter, and make a bit extra, it seemed to go on more evenly. I used freshly grated parmesan cheese and sprinkled it over each layer both times, and it was really nice. I used shredded cheddar the second time(sprinkled between layers) mmmmm it was really good. I didn't have the herbs called for so I just made a mixture of oregano, basil, parsley, and dehydrated onion. This bread was so much fun to pull apart and eat. We had it with baked spagetti and also with beef stew. I bet it would be good to do this with butter, brown sugar and cinnamon, maybe a Christmas morning treat.

Soft, Moist and Gooey Cinnamon Buns

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2006
WOW!!! I just inherited a regal bread machine with no manual, so I added the ingredients as listed, and it worked perfectly. It was my very first time using a bread machine, also my first time making cinnamon buns. I used a little bit of extra butter and brown sugar, and used lots of butter in the pan. When I took them out of the oven I turned them out onto a plate immediately, cause I knew all that gooey sugar would turn very sticky, then I drizzled what was left in the pan over top of the buns, and soaked the pan in soapy water right away. I think these are the best cinnamon buns ever. I put cream cheese icing on half of them, cause my hubby likes his without. To me, they don't really need icing, I think they are perfect the way they are, but the kids liked them both ways. I think next time I won't even bother with icing. They are the perfect texture, the perfect sweetness, and they are so easy!!! I will make these again and again, especially for Christmas treats to pass out to my hubby's single friends!
