In the Kitchen with Oma

~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~

My mother has been cooking from the time that she was 9 or 10 years old.
She was born in 1922 in the former Czechoslavakia and had 7 siblings.
When she was 14 years old she left home to serve her "Pflichtjahr".
That is when she began to cook in earnest.
She loves experimenting with spices. Everything she cooks is delicious.

My mother has led an exciting life.The next time she visits
I'm going to videotape her talking about all her adventures.
She has told me how they fled first to Austria
and later to Germany.

I have copied most of the recipes that I wrote out and took photos for
and posted them on this Website. I hope you will try them.
Let me know how they turned out.

Schnitzel
My Tante Poldi cooks this for us
every time we visit.
Try it for dinner-
it's easy to prepare!

This is the low-fat version-
hard to find in an Austrian kitchen.
Enjoy- Dave and Sandy!

No self respecting German
would publish any recipes
without having one for
Sauerkraut
This one is a "Family favorite".

~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~

Flädle
These are used in clear broths
instead of noodles.
They also make a GREAT dessert!

This is a broth to serve with Flädle.
It's a great way to use meat
that would otherwise be discarded.

Oma's schwäbischer Kartoffelsalat
It's perfect to serve with Schnitzel!

smaller than a dumpling.
