Cabbage Borscht

The Ukrainians made borsch, and the Mennonites of the Ukraine borrowed the soup but substituted cabbage as the main ingredient rather than beets, and called it Borscht. My Borscht is much like the soup my mom cooked, for which there was no written recipe. But it goes something like this... Borscht 2 lbs. soup bones, with lots of meat 8-10 cups water 2-4 carrots, sliced 4 medium potatoes, cubed 1 large (or 2 medium) onions, chopped 1 medium head cabbage, chopped fine 2 teaspoons salt 1/4…

Ingredients - for cake 2 eggs 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 cup Crisco shortening 1/4 cup milk 2 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 tsp vanilla 1 1/2 cup flour…

Shepherd's Pie

Also another tip if you are pressed for time, is to brown ground beef a head of time, and freeze in the amount you need to be ready for days when you are busy with other things. TOPPING : half a 5 lb bag of potatoes 1 cup milk 2 tablespoons butter salt and…
