Late Summer Chicken Paprikash – in the Kitchen with Jenn

My Great-Grandmother taught my mom how to make Chicken Paprikash, then she taught me and that is the way I have always made it. I have come across many different recipes, but I have never felt the need to test any of them out. Then I was flipping through Eva Longoria’s cookbook, a book filled … Continue reading Late Summer Chicken Paprikash – in the Kitchen with Jenn

“Mutti, When Are We Ordering the Wurst?”, by Werner Fricker Jr.

Werner Fricker Jr. tells the tale of our favorite Hungarian Smoked sausage. Is this story the definitive end of that tale? Who knows, after all everything has an end but the wurst has two.

An ‘Ode’ to Paprika, by Michael Fricker

You might just say we can't get enough of the stuff. I used to say, “Paprika makes everything better.” It was mostly tongue in cheek but when I really contemplate the idea there isn’t much, I can think of that it would not improve.

Goulash – in the Kitchen with Jenn

 After a vacation filled with eating in restaurants and grabbing fast food at rest stops, nothing sounded better than pulling out my Landesverband Frauengruppe Cookbook to make one of my favorite comfort dishes, goulash. The book contains several different goulash recipes—everything from recipes using fish to venison. I chose to make Liz Tindall's (Trenton Donauschwaben) "Beef Goulash ( Rindsgulasch)".       Goulash got its … Continue reading Goulash – in the Kitchen with Jenn

Hamburgers – in the Kitchen with Jenn

Last weekend, to kick off grilling season, I decided to take my Landesverband Frauengruppe Cookbook outside. I combined two German recipes and fired up the grill to make an American classic. I used Deutscher Kulturverein, St. Louis’ German hamburger recipe and Christa Miller’s (Milwaukee Donauschwaben) cheese spread to make a mouthwatering cheeseburger packed with German flavor.   Deutscher Kulturverein’s “German Hamburgers” cook up perfectly on the grill. The recipe is a … Continue reading Hamburgers – in the Kitchen with Jenn
