Cabbage Balushka or Cabbage and Noodles

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2013
Very simple comfort food. It makes a nice homey dish for a cold winter evening. Sometimes I go crazy and add turkey bacon or, cook the cabbage down in a little chicken broth. I always add some garlic. This dish really isn't anything special (in fact, overall it's pretty bland)and yet, it always gets gobbled up. Served with crusty bread slathered in butter and cheap red wine served European style in a short chunky glass - it seems to appeal to a sense of primal peasantry and, a longing for simpler times.

Beef Pot Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2013
The perfect (every single time) pot roast. A suggestion from one who just seldom feels the need to follow directions & has to constantly tweek & personalize every recipe I feast my eyes on - JUST TRY to leave this one alone. It is perfect as it is, your guests will love it and you will be the little kitchen genius who knows how to make a perfect roast beef.

Grilled Escarole

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2013
This is a classic in my home during the long fabulous Las Vegas grilling season. It's super easy, always delicious and goes with anything you've popped on the grill - steak, seafood, chicken, grilled veggie plate. The only thing I do differently is to use blue cheese dressing with the blue cheese crumbles. Definitely adds a 'special', gourmet touch to your meal and tastes great.

Southern Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2013
This was yummy and a big hit with the family. I sautéed the mushrooms with butter and a splash of wine and passed on the bread crumbs. Can't really fathom what they would have added to this delicious soup. I will definitely keep this in my recipe rotation - especially now that's officially autumn again. I think next time I will use a couple of different types of mushrooms to add layers of flavor. You know you've got a winner when you're asked, "why don't you make that mushroom soup again". Enjoy!

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2013
Yep - this was a hit. Forgot the onions and milk but did add several garlic cloves, slowly sautéed the meatballs in a little olive oil and drenched them with marinara sauce when they were just about done. Make super yummy meatball sandwiches. Delicious! Highly recommend.

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2013
Wow - this one got some serious rave reviews at my house! I didn't have parsley so chopped up a couple of handfuls of swiss chard, added aabout half again as much paprika, didn't have soy sauce so I used worcestershire sauce instead and loved it. No lemon - oh well. I did add sautéed garlic (about 5 cloves because we're all garlic crazy over here). This soup has a wonderful layer of flavors without being heavy or (gasp) fattening. My grandson announced anchovies would go great in this soup and I think he's absolutely right - next time we will add a tin of finely chopped anchovies along with some garlicky croutons - oh yum!

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2013
Great french toast recipe. To prevent ingredients seperating - I first mix all dry ingredients, then beat in the eggs till smooth and add the cup of milk last. The cinnamon and flour are perfectly blended that way and, with no seperating. Also, I add quite a bit more cinnamon (probabaly a tablespoon). Almost any kind of bread works great - normally I use a french or italian loaf bread sliced in two and thoroughly drenched in the mix, then slowly cooked in a covered skillet so the middle isn't soppy. Great stuff!
