Those tidy packages of Ramen noodles seem to be quite versatile. Here they turn a broccoli salad into something special. The seasoning packet and a bit of oil and vinegar make the dressing, and the crunchy noodles combined with sunflower seeds, peanuts and green onions, do wonders for the broccoli slaw.
When I was a child, my best friend and I loved when my dad made this cheese and potato soup with dill. It looked to us like he had shaved all of his whiskers off into the pot of soup, earning the name Daddy's Whisker Soup!
The recipe for this rich and tangy Russian soup calls for wild mushrooms and three types of meat cooked in a highly seasoned beef stock with kalamata olives, marinated mushrooms, capers, and dill pickles.
This is great as a party appetizer or a full meal. Tasty, full of flavor AND good for you. The crunchy crust is what I really like! You can play with the veggie toppings and cheeses for a great meal that is fast and delicious! Our favorite quick meal!
