EM:

What type of frosting? My preference is anything but chocolate. I just don't care for chocolate.

When my daughter was learning to cook she made "ME" tollhouse cookies. I would eat the cookies and tell her they were great. Then I would tell her my favorite cookie was oatmeal/raisin. Next batch of cookies - tollhouse. We had a conversation when she was about 35 years old. She said that she had just figured out that I didn't like tollhouse cookies.

I collected recipes when I was stationed in Germany. Most of the recipes are German cooking. I do have one for dough balls for carp.

Have you heard of salt-raisen bread? The basic ingredient is potatoes with a bit of flour.

As you are probably aware, Rudi and I spent the better part of 2 years in Lahr, Germany on a posting with CF. I love German food. You should share a few of that collection of yours. :D

Nope can't say that I have heard of salt raisen bread. Sounds good though! Want to share? :wink:

I use Mrs Minnick's Sauerbraten Mix (actually, it's a liquid) for my sour beef. It comes in a glass container shaped like a fancy booze bottle. Find it with vinegar, ketchup, etc area of the supermarket, at least here in the Mid-Atlantic region.

Home grown recipes are always appreciated!
