Pumpkin Cream Soup with Oat Petals

It has been a long while since I last posted on either of my blogs... While browsing through one of the cookbooks that I gathered while living in Poland, I thought that it would be fun to start cooking through them. Not only will this help me to keep some of the memories of living there alive, but will keep my ever-so feeble attempt at speaking and reading Polish from dwindling entirely. I also have some posts planned for Who Stole the Kishka, so stay tuned!

Hungarian Goulash

After our first trip to Budapest last summer, I spent some time in the kitchen with my mom preparing goulash. It was delightful to have a stew simmering that brought back childhood memories for her of times with her grandma. A bowl of goulash will surely provide an appreciation for those rainy or snow-filled days.

Kasha Porridge with Rhubarb Sauce

One of my new favorite discoveries here in Poland is kasha. The grocery story has an entire section of the grain and you can choose between several levels of grinds depending on what you may be using it for. In the States you can find it labeled as buckwheat groats. It has replaced oatmeal in my kitchen... Although the recipe sounds like several steps, please don't hesitate. It is really quite simple!
