Scottish Brose Pudding Recipe

| by Lisa | sweets

Brose is a Scots word for an uncooked form of porridge in which oatmeal (and/or other meals) is mixed with boiling water and allowed to stand for a short time. The recipe for Athole Brose, the cocktail form of brose, in “Traditional Scottish Recipes” by George L Thomson is flavored with whiskey and honey. To make this brose pudding, I pureed steel cut oats and mixed it with whipped cream, whiskey and honey. The texture is similar to tapioca, but the flavor is undeniably Scottish.

Russian Stuffed Cabbage Recipe (Golubtsy)

| by Lisa | vegetables, sides, bread

This is one delicious stuffed cabbage recipe. The sauce really pulls all the flavors together. The next time I make it, I will use 2 cabbage heads so I could use only the thinner, more pliable outer leaves rather than having to use the stiffer inner leaves. I added an egg to this recipe to help the beef and rice bind together better.
