Long Connecticut winters are ideal for cooking, and keep the house warm too. I enjoy cooking, and any kind of meat is a fun thing to cook right now. I love trying out new recipies.

My mom came from Germany, my Dad from Hungary and I grew up eating a lot of ethnic dishes. I wish I got my mom's kuchen recipe.

One Thanksgiving,we had 15 for dinner. I cooked a turkey and a goose. What a great time.

Great dish! I added an extra layer of noodles to make 2 layers instead of 2. And I still had another layer of noodles left over. Next time I'll double the sauce! Extremely delicious !!! — brentnhunter 5/8/2013

Perfect for tonight's low of -10 degrees. Heated the whole house with the best smell. This is my 10th time making this. As always, comes out perfect ! To the person who commented " bland", she probably had American paprika. Please switch to authentic Hungarian sweet paprika. — sgrishka 1/24/2013

Rosti (Swiss Fried Potatoes)

Rosti (Swiss Fried Potatoes)

This IS a timeless recipe. I did take some shortcuts tho. I cooked the bacon, and let it set. I boiled the potatoes for 5 minutes. (15 is too long). Then I grated them after peeling, and 1/2 way through grating, I added pure olive oil so they wouldn't stick, adding then the onion and bacon. (sprinkle the oil all over 1/2 way through). Then I preheated the oven to 350, and put a cookie sheet on the grate to warm up. Incredibly, the mixture flew into a greased round pan, with butter sliced over it (1/2 stick total) and made it into the oven for an hour. Everyone loved it because I was able to make a steak while this bugger was cooking. 6/22/2011

Thank you for the nice comment on my page. Glad you liked the black bean and corn salad. I often make this as one of my sides to mexican meals.

last 1/2 hour would be fine for the stew, that way they keep most of there flavor and remain somewhat firm.
