A variation of the plum dumplings, this is a great way to use apricots in a dish. These dumplings are a great idea for breakfast or dinner (with a glass of cold milk); they can also be served as dessert.
My grandmother used to make this dish pretty often, especially during lent. As a child I was not too found of it but now I like it and, to my surprise, my kids also enjoy eating cabbage and noodles, especially my three year old daughter.
Still looking for the perfect side dish? Rice pilaf is the one and what a versatile food you can add any vegetables you have in the house, add cheese, walnuts, anything you have on hand and it’s great.
Another great dessert for the season. Really easy to make and the kids enjoyed having this snack at school.
The sweet Plum Dumplings are a fall favorite in our household. They can be served as dessert or main dish. I’ve seen variations of this recipe in Romania, Austria, Croatia and Hungary. It’s simply delicious and makes a good snack for kids’ lunches too.
I remember few years back when one of my daughters just started walking and climbing everything we found her on the kitchen table eating a plum dumpling. To this day this is one of her favorite dishes.
Chicken Paprikas is a great dinner idea and it’s pretty easy to make. This is definitely one of my kids favorite dish! Usually I make a double quantity of dumplings as they want extras.
I have this recipe from my mom but it’s a Hungarian inspired recipe and there are different variations so you can definitely make this your own and if you feel something else is needed, maybe you have a favorite vegetable you want to add or change the meat type go ahead. What makes paprikas a paprikas is the tomato sauce, paprika and the dumplings – those are an insanely delicious combination so keep those in your recipe.
