German Cabbage Dishes
Cabbage is a mainstay in German cuisine, cooked as well as fermented into Germany's world-famous sauerkraut. Take advantage of cabbage's mild complement to tart condiments in your next German feast.See Popular German Cabbage Dishes Recipes

Some say it's a good tailgating salad that makes the party, rounding out all the other great dishes, like chili, brats, pie, and desserts. We kind of agree. A good, old-fashioned German Potato Salad or a Creamy version that is just a little lighter on the mayo sound to us like essential dishes for true-blue tailgating.
There's a big difference between a food that can be grilled and a food that's meant to be grilled. Take bratwurst: this sausage is tasty regardless of the preparation, but when grilled, bratwurst really reaches its full flavor potential. The skin becomes deliciously crisp while the interior stays juicy and succulent.
My husband loves California, but once in a while, his Midwestern roots tug at him. Like every time we go to a diner. In this part of the world, they put vinegar in the coleslaw, and mayo on the burger.
Crispy pan fried pork chop recipes and red cabbage with apples, red wine vinegar, and caraway seeds.
If, like me, you ever spent a significant part of your adult life living without a dishwasher, then you'll know what I'm talking about: the indescribable feeling of supreme comfort and ease the first time you load your very first dishwasher after a big dinner, press that button and hear it hum to life. Whatever conflicted feelings we may have about technology, at that moment it seems like humanity couldn't possibly have come up with a more perfect invention (forget antibiotics or automobiles). For all the promise of microwaves, we may not be able to cook dinner with a touch of a button, but we can come close to cleaning up after dinner by pressing one.
The Battle of the Summer Side Dishes keeps heating up, and we've just entered the lasted phase, a kind of War of the World's, with traditional potato salad vs. great recipes from Germany, Italy, and, yes, America, too. Who will win the conflict depends entirely upon you.

Betcha when you think "cranberries," you almost automatically think "sauce" -- and no doubt, cranberries do a noble job serving as the sweet-tart foil to Thanksgiving's main event: the turkey. But these ruby-red berries are incredibly versatile--they have a bright, fruit-forward flavor that lends itself to appetizers (especially those with mild cheese), drinks (from cocktails to refreshing teas and punches), side dishes (they add a nice crunch, color, and spark to rice), and desserts, where they play nicely with a whole host of other fruits and spices. Plus, that slight sourness is a boon when you're pairing the berries with ubersweet ingredients like apples, apricots, and peaches.
There's no doubt broccoli is good for you--it's loaded with fiber, vitamin C, and other cancer-fighting compounds. And it's delicious all by itself, either steamed with a little bit of sweet-cream butter or roasted with a drizzle of olive oil. But don't get stuck in a broccoli rut!

It's no mistake to use the expression "just peachy" to describe complete satisfaction. In fact, we can think of nothing more satisfying than fresh summer peaches, especially in desserts. As these succulent, sweet fruits come into season, there is no better time to showcase their taste in any number of creative peach desserts.
There are few fruits quite as stunning as blood oranges. Enjoy them in some favorite recipes before their short season is over.
I used to love collecting chestnuts at this time of year with my family and remember how we painstakingly roasted and peeled them. You, too, can make roasted chestnuts at home, like we did. But I used the word "painstakingly" for a reason.
