the carpathian mountains of eastern slovakia and romania are where vlad tepesch, or dracula, was from.
not surprisingly my wife's relatives also are from there.
oh gosh, no biggie buckster. I think I was poisoned
by it not long ago. < no really.
my mil had garlic oil and onion oil in her pantry I remember. we used that in this dish. since, and not long ago, I found Durkee garlic extract and onion extract. I bought them both, not being able to resist. haven't used them, but maybe some day will.

Stuffed cabbage is yummy!!
never thought of it that way and my vote would be no, not really, cause the cabbage just sort of disappears into the background. All I can say is very comforting food. Great flavor without a lot of fussiness.
Long ago in one of the really old BH&G cookbooks there was a recipe for Italian style spaghetti made of all things with cream of mushroom soup and I think even a tad of soy sauce or was it Worchestershire sauce, I get those two confused, anyway, it was so easy, so basic and so good, sort of like an old version of Bolognese in flavor. Anyway, some times the best recipes are the ones with the least amount of trouble for the best results. I'll have to look for that in one of my four old BH&G cookbooks. If anyone finds it first, feel free to let me know again what's in it.
