Bohemian Pork Roast

Rating: 4.58 stars
When I lived in Chicago used to go to Cicero for a treat like this, served with steamed dumplings and mashed potatoes. Use the drippings to make an incredible gravy.

Pumpernickel Rye Bread

Rating: 4.58 stars
This is a hearty bread. Mix it in the bread machine (or stand mixer) but bake it in the oven. I recommend baking in the oven instead of the machine because the loaf is fuller and the top is much nicer. I hope you enjoy it.

German Lentil Soup

Rating: 4.17 stars
This is a really good lentil soup recipe I created based on the favorite German Lentil Soup which has been served for years at Karl Ratzsch's in Milwaukee. Serves a small crowd, tastes great the next day, and freezes well. Garnish with croutons.

Russian Cabbage Borscht

Rating: 4.63 stars
An elderly lady residing in Turkey served this to a friend of ours while he was in that country several years ago. She has since passed away, but her recipe lives on. It is the best Borscht recipe I've ever enjoyed. Serve topped with sour cream, extra dill weed, chopped fresh tomatoes.

Irish Soda Bread Cookies

Rating: 4.71 stars
All the flavors of Irish Soda Bread in a quick and easy cookie!

Crispy Roasted Chicken

Rating: 4.71 stars
This oven-roasted chicken is inspired by the Brathaehnchen served commonly in Bavarian Biergartens, small shops, and food carts. You can serve this chicken with many side dishes, but favorites are fried potatoes or spaetzle and a nice garden salad. Weiss beer doesn't hurt at all!

Braised Cabbage

Rating: 4.59 stars
Braised cabbage is a tasty side dish with any meal.

Kielbasa and Cabbage

Rating: 4.55 stars
This smoked Polish sausage dish is great for company, but quick enough for a weeknight! It is super good and easy, and can be prepared well in advance. Complete your meal by adding a baked potato, fruit salad, and bread.

Harissa Powder

Rating: 5 stars
Harissa powder is the ground spice blend of the spicy, earthy North African paste with a base of smoked chili peppers. It can be used as a dry rub on meats or as a spice in place of any other spice blend in your favorite recipe, such as tacos, tagines, braised meats, curries, or even tofu. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 month, or until the expiration date of any of the single ingredients, if earlier.

Chef John's Beef Goulash

Rating: 4.71 stars
This Hungarian-style goulash is a thick beef stew that is great served over buttered noodles and garnished with sour cream.

Authentic Hungarian Goulash

Rating: 4.08 stars
This recipe was given to me by my sister, who got it from a lady visiting from Hungary in 1961.

Russian Black Bread

Rating: 4.65 stars
I have been looking for a good Russian Black Bread recipe. This one is the closest I have come. The vinegar adds a bit of a bite, but believe me, with cheese it is marvelous.

This is a great recipe for that wild bird you're not sure what to do with. Sweet and tangy at the same time.

These rolls are fragrant with caraway seeds and topped with coarse salt, making them the perfect base for Western New York's Beef on Weck sandwiches.
