One of the most popular, traditional Romanian dishes is sarmale. It can be made with fresh or sour cabbage or grape leaves (as is common in Moldova and Bulgaria). Because they take some time to make, they are often served for celebrations and holidays such as Christmas and Easter. TWomen will often sit around the table rolling them and visiting.


This is a light and sweet Romanian favorite. It is traditionally served at Christmas and Easter and a few other celebrations.

I'm in to cooking with as many whole foods. These recipes focus on good fresh ingredients. They are also budget and (usually) calorie friendly.
Cook once, eat healthy all week!
Need time to exercise after work? All 6 meals take about 3 hours. I find having a verity of delicious healthy meals prepared helps me resist mid week take-out. Left-overs make great work day lunches. Turn on the radio and spend Sunday afternoon cooking and keep your weeknights free.
