Modified eggplant with zucchini and smokey cheddar
About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother is from Hungary, and every year for New Years day she would make Bab Leves (Le-vesh), which is Hungarian Bean soup. When I was younger I would help make the Csipetke (chi-pet-ke) which is pinched noodles. I continue to make this soup every year, and sometimes during the year when I get a craving...:)

Easy Garden Green Beans
This was wonderful! I harvested Bush Beans from the garden today (First harvest:) and wanted a simple way to cook them that had zero sugar. I halved this recipe and chopped extra garlic and left it in with the beans(we love garlic). I didn't measure anything, but I think I got about the right amounts per the recipe. And I think steaming left them with great flavor. Thank you for posting this! My boyfriend also loved it and said I should make them like this all the time. (oh, I also used sea salt, and skipped the parsley as I didn't have any, and just put the grated Parmesan cheese on for serving.)

Pork Loin with Caraway Crust
I thought this was amazing. I didn't have the Caraway seeds though, so had to sub...used half celery seed and half cumin seed. I also added a bit of garlic powder and some black pepper, and used EVOO rather than Veg. oil. And we used the charcoal grill: about half hour one side, flip, another half hour or so, check temp. We planned on having leftovers, but we ate it all right away. It was amazingly juicy and a ton of good flavor. Will be making this on a regular basis. I am going to buy caraway seeds today, so I will use it next time. I am sure it will be just as good!

Eggplant Delight
I gave it 4 stars cuz I had to change it so much. I only had 2 very small eggplants a lady at work gave me, too small to set anything on. also I had only smokey cheddar cheese. The eggplant looked really lonely in the pan, so I fried up a zucchini the same way I did the eggplant, and ended up using olive oil, garlic powder, salt, a bit of pepper, and diced onions. I mixed everything but the cheese together in the pan, then placed the cheese on top to didn't melt so I mixed it in too. It turned out to be a gooey yummy mess!!! I am totally keeping this recipe handy, with my modifications...I am going to try to post a photo as well.
