Dal Bhat

dal bhat

We made Dal Bhat as part of our Nepali food party one night. I thought it would be like a soup but it ended up thicker then I expected. It was still yummy mixed with rice and the chutney makes it not so dry. Ingredients: 1 c. lentils 1 T. oil 2 cloves minced garlic 1 […]

Nepal’s Cauliflower Curry

cauliflower curry nepal

We’ve ended up having people over a few times when we made food from each country and the same happened for Nepal night. It’s a good thing because we still had a ton of left over lentils (note: lentils are filling and you don’t need to double the recipe.) This cauliflower curry however, flew off the […]


Guatemalan Pupusas


We ate Guatemalan pupusas one night for dinner this week. It’s kind of like a dough ball stuffed with beans and cheese. Right up my alley! Based on the four dishes we tried, it seems like Guatemala food is often stuffed or cooked inside of something else. Ingredients: 2 c.  masa harina (a dough made from […]


Plantain Rellenitos

plantain rellenitos

Plantain Rellenitos was our choice of dessert for Guatemalan week. And since it has both bananas and beans, it can almost be considered healthy! Just kidding. They were very rich but tasty. Ingredients: 4 ripe plantains (we used bananas and cut down the sugar content) 1 c. of refried bean ⅓ c. sugar (since we […]


Guatemalan Tamales


My first thought at tamales was ‘where am I going to find banana leaves for wrapping in Germany?’ Lucky me, I found you can also use parchment paper or even tin foil to keep the tamales together. Ingredients: 2 c. corn flour 1/2 c. butter, cubed 1 t. salt pinch of sugar 1/2 c. broth […]


Chiles Rellenos

chili rellenos

For Guatemala week we tried out our modified version of Chiles Rellenos. I try to make dinner kids approved most night so we don’t have to cook twice. So this version is maybe a little less spicy than usual. But I would still recommend this way! Ingredients: 6 large poblano peppers 2 tsp. vegetable oil 1 medium […]


Vanilla Pudding / Budyń

vanilla pudding

It was always a special treat growing up when we could make pudding for dessert! Vanilla is my favorite, even if that makes me boring. This is the first time I ever made it from scratch, and it wasn’t even that hard! Ingredients: 2 c. milk 1 Tbsp butter 1/2 vanilla pod 3 Tbsp vanilla sugar […]


Haluski or Polish cabbage and noodles

Polish cabbage and noodles haluski recipe

We choose Poland week because of the cabbage actually. When I was making the sambusa, it called for a little cabbage. Mo was sure which kind to get so he bought 3 different heads. I’m not a big cabbage eater but somewhere in the recesses of my brain I remembered a lady that used to make ‘Cabbage […]
