Create Art & Curate Your Home

In our neck of the woods ‘Cabbage Recipes’ are a mainstay in our kitchens with Haluski, Halupki, Perogies and even Lakeside Potatoes on our menus. You will even find each dish served at local festivals and Church events.

My Hubby worked at a local Cabbage Farm thru his teenage years. He also ‘jars’ sauerkraut with his Uncle Joe and Friends each and every year….secret recipes handed down from one generation to the next.

Cabbage Roll Stew has become a favorite in our home. There are many variations…this one among my favorites! It is quick, simple and made in the crockpot, then served over rice.

My Mom makes a similar variation using Tomato Soup!
