Delicious as a salad for a barbeque or to eat with your favorite protein.
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
Originally an unwritten recipe from my mother, she always made these to go with pork and sauerkraut.
My mother was born and raised in Bavaria. Our family loved red cabbage. She is gone now, but I've adapted her recipe with just the right ratio of ingredients to make it just like hers! The key is using red wine vinegar. This freezes very well, too, but there aren't leftovers when I make it for family get togethers.

Add a LITTLE extra flavor to your veggies by pan frying up some turkey bacon while you steam your veggies until they are ALMOST DONE. Then add them to the pan with bacon and stir. The flavor of the bacon permeates the veggies. This IS tastier with real bacon as the flavor is stronger, but healthier with the turkey bacon.
A yummy use for leftover mashed Potatoes.
Home Made Noodles
A childhood favorite brought by my ancestors from the motherland, only healthier!
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.

5 Cups Flour
1/2 teas salt
enough water to make soft
