Honey Vanilla Ice Cream
This is the best homemade vanilla ice cream I've ever had. The honey and brown sugar give it a rich, buttery taste that can't be beat.
Squash and Zucchini Casserole
Here's a vegetable casserole that's great as a summer meal. You might want to put a cookie sheet or something under this dish as it bakes, because it sometimes bubbles over.
Spinach Cantaloupe Salad with Mint
Spinach salad with cantaloupe, avocado, red peppers, and mint. Truly a refreshing summer delight! Serve with crusty French bread and a lovely buttery chardonnay.
Baked Sweet Potatoes
Very healthy and tasty sweet potatoes that will be a great addition to any meal. Very easy!
Roast Leg of Lamb
Cooking peeled potatoes in the pan around the roast is yummy. The only other things you need are gravy made from the pan drippings and a fresh vegetable.
Triple the Ginger Cookies
These are a real pain in the butt to make, but they are worth it. The best ginger cookies I have ever eaten.
This is a recipe created by Russian German immigrants. It is very popular in the Nebraska, South Dakota region where I am from. Cabbage and ground beef are encased in a neat little bread package.
Indian Tacos with Yeast Fry Bread
My cousins grew up on a reservation in South Dakota, and this is how we always made our fry bread (with yeast).
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.
