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!

Bircher Muesli

Having spent the Christmas holiday away from home, we splurged Christmas morning and had breakfast at the hotel. The assortment of offerings was beautiful and my heart was instantly swept away by the Bircher Muesli. Easy to prepare, wholesome and fun to dress up - this is now my standard breakfast.
