Yep:!: One of the reasons I married her was because of the fine food I was introduced to. I will get her recipe and post it. I have made it myself a few times. We don't measure anything but just "eyeball it".....but I will try and write up a recipe that can be followed.

You are not drunk if you can lie on the floor without holding on.

My paternal Grandparents were German, unfortunately they didn't pass on any great cuisine. As far as my Gramma was concerned there were only 2 settings on the stove. High and off!

There were some traditions in my family. The main one was eating sauerkraut on New Year's Day.

Are eggs pickled in beet juice German? That is another family recipe.

I am German and Swiss but I didn't find that out until I was over 50 - until then I thought I was Irish/Italian but I'm now learning about German Cooking and last week I made - I think it was Bockwurst (fine veal sausage) and Spaetzle and I'm in love! German cookbooks are not very common!

Cooking is like love, it should be entered into with abandon or not at all. Oregon native transplanted to Chicago....
