Barbequed Steak

Rating: Unrated
A tender cut like Porterhouse, T-Bone, Rib Eye, New York or Top Sirloin are all good steaks for this simple marinade. Serve with a dollop of garlic butter, if desired.

Borscht II

Rating: Unrated
This takes some time, but is well worth the effort. I use a food processor. It is a hearty soup, great on a cold winter night. Serve hot, topped with sour cream.

Butterball Soup

Rating: Unrated
Tender little bread dumplings in a chicken broth make this a special treat.

Whole Wheat Drop Biscuits

Rating: Unrated
These are quick, easy, vegan biscuits. I especially like them with soup or vegetarian chili.

Authentic German Potato Salad

Rating: Unrated
This is my mother's recipe. Everyone, German or not, loves it. It is easy to double the recipe as well. I often bring it to potlucks, and we also have it at home on special occasions. There are usually no leftovers, but if there are, they don't last long!

German-Russian-Dakota Knefla

Rating: Unrated
This version of knefla is a tasty, easy German-Russian staple for dinner, comprised simply of dough and potatoes. Sometimes I add 2 teaspoons of chicken bouillon to the boiling water for extra flavor. Serve with sausage, brats, or alone. Some like it with sauerkraut or breadcrumbs for garnish.

Fleischkuechle (Flesh-Keek-Luh)

Rating: Unrated
Deep fried dumplings with seasoned ground beef. This is a favorite in Germany. Our family is German and my grandfather taught me how to me it! Recipe sounds odd. Take a chance. I guarantee your family will love it!

Apple Kuchen

Rating: Unrated
This is a delicious German recipe.

Bauernomlett (Farmer's Omelet)

Rating: Unrated
In Germany, this simple dish is served at breakfast , lunch or dinner. It's also called 'Farmer's Omelet.' Serve with a dill pickle or a nice salad as a side. My kids prefer ketchup with the meal.

Norwegian Butter Cookies

Rating: Unrated
Excellent as either drop cookies or cookie press cookies. Try using lemon extract in place of the vanilla for a citrusy punch!

Lefse I

Rating: Unrated
A special Scandinavian treat. Beginner lefse makers might want to make only a third of the portion the first time through! Serve any number of ways. A favorite is with butter or margarine and sugar. Some people like cinnamon with this, too. Jellies make an excellent topping as do thinly sliced fried sandwich meat.

Vanille Kipferl I

Rating: Unrated
This recipe is known in America as almond crescents. I converted the measurements and translated this recipe that has been in my family for generations. It's a German Christmas cookie.
