Dumpling that Saved a Town and A Spring Food Winner, Rhubarb
Spring is here and so it is time to think about the first seasonal fruit and Veg. I am still making some dumplings from my big project with dumplings, many of them Dumplings from my German heritage.
Since I just got done with dessert dumplings I wanted to share one of my favorites, the Dampfnudel. there are both sweet and savory Dampfnudels and it has the coolest history of any food. The stuff you could make a movie out of. The town of Freckenfeld, Germany was saved during the 30 years war by none other than the Dampfnudel!
Rhubarb is a sour choice for so many folks but is one of the sweet signs of Spring when you see it coming up in the garden. It is very healthy so a real great choice to add more recipes to your culinary repetoire.

Just a little Tibit Idea for Grilling
I have been at the families house in Reno, Nevada and had a propane
BBQ but didn't have a kettle BBQ to do a dish that was defined by the smoky flavor of
briquetts and wood. So figured there must be a way.

German Strawberry Torte

Thoughts on Mother's Day
The national holiday in the United States called Mother's Day was spearheaded by one woman in particular that dearly loved and respected her mother who devoted most of her life to great causes.
The story of this lady Anna Marie Jarvis is an interesting one. She was a career woman and not even a Mother herself.
