Oh boy where to start....She makes an outrageous pasta with fresh vegetables. Her meatballs are to die for. She makes a delicious veal over spinach. I can go on and on....Now I'm hungry, let me see if she'll make me something
She is an awesome cook with 2 generations of family recipes. The BBQ is mine though!
My wife makes what she calls Cutlets, which is how they are translated from Russian. The best way to describe them are fried meatballs.
1 lbs. beef, 1/2 lbs. pork, 1/2 veal, 7 pieces of bread soaked in milk, all put through a meat grinder. Add 2 cups of bread crumbs, a fried onion, and 2 eggs. Roll it into a ball (kind of flat, 4x as thick as a 1/4 lb. hamburger, 2/3 the diamter), coat it with bread crumbs and fry it. After frying, leave them in a low heat frying pan to make sure they cook through.
This is my absolute favorite meal at home, especially with some fried potatoes.
Man that sounds good, cpw! The hubby likes to make spagetti and he can do pretty well by spicing up a decent sauce.
I like to experiment. Apparently the meatloaf I made the other day was real good. Go figure! I do have to clean and butcher my own game. I enjoy making different things, but I guess my stir-fry would be my signature dish. It's always a bit different tho, as I discover new sauces and ingredients. Doing the same thing every time is boring!
I put it all back together better than before. There\'s lots of leftover parts.
Patty can make just about anything and I have so many "dishes" in mind that it's really hard to think of a favorite. One of my favorites is her lasagna, which is better than I've eaten anywhere. She's unquestionably the best cook in all the family and that says a lot I think.
But above all, she makes a cherry pie that is to die for. Actually the crust is the best part of it for me. She has a somewhat unique recipe I think, as I've never had a pie from anywhere that is even close.
