Very Good 4.8/5
(6 ratings)

A cucumber with veggie salad, my mom said it is a german dish my grandma use to make. I americanized it a bit by adding a few tbsp of italian dressing. It seems like an odd combo of ingredients but tastes delish

A favorite breakfast food with my kids. Lower in calories than regular pancakes, and more filling because of all the eggs. Serve with German Pancake Syrup (I've added this too)

St. Hildegard's Cookies of Joy
Incredible! 5.0/5
(5 ratings)


(Recipe reconstructed and adapted from Hildegard's circa 1157 treatise Physica: Liber Simplicis Medicinæ ) These biscuits were first made over 900 years ago by the Christian saint, Hildegard of Bingen. She said that these spice biscuits should be taken t regular intervals to increase joy and positivity! I like to substitute half of the plain flour with spelt flour, and use all organic ingredients.

Low Cal. Plum cake
Incredible! 5.0/5
(5 ratings)

This Cake was made without any butter. I used none fat sour cream as a substitute. The plums can be replaced with any of your favorite fruits such as peaches, apples, cherries and prunes. Try this with a spoon full of none dairy whipping cream and you will be in heaven.

Balsamic-braised Red Cabbage
Very Good 4.4/5
(10 ratings)

My father's grandparents on both sides were from Austria and he grew up with many traditional German and Austrian dishes and a love for cooked cabbage in various forms. This love he passed on to me and I'm delighted to present his sweet and sour red cabbage recipe.

This is such a fast, simple recipe for rye bread. The bread is airy and the flavor is light. I adapted a recipe from allrecipes.com and I make this bread at least once a week.

Unlike many of the French Onion Soup recipes on SparkRecipes. com, the nutrition values listed for this one include the bread and cheese toppings. Lower in fat and sodium than any pre-packaged version of this all-time favorite, this French Onion Soup wll rival any you get in a restaurant when it comes to taste. The key to a successful soup is to cook the onons slowly, consistenly reducing the cooking temperature.
