My love for cabbage rolls started way back in college, when one of my Ukrainian roommates cooked some for dinner. It was one of the heartiest and tastiest cabbage rolls I have ever tasted in my life, and I was instantly addicted. From then on, I’ve tried making cabbage rolls myself and perfecting my own recipe. I’ve even tried making different versions of the dish like the Ukrainian Golubtsi, the Polish Golabki, and the German Kohlrouladen. They’re all cabbage rolls, but each country has its own different twist on the dish so that no two are exactly alike.
Pizza is delicious but inconvenient. I know that this might sound odd to you: after all, pizza is a finger food that’s broken up into perfectly sized portions. It’s also easy to share or even to store for leftovers later.
Despite these facts, I still prefer calzones and strombolis to pizza, especially when I’m only cooking or ordering for myself. Both of these pizza turnovers are easy to eat by hand. They’re usually perfectly sized for one person and come with just the right mix of cheese, sauce, and meat on the inside.
Italian food is an American invention. I’m not trying to say that the Italians don’t have their own unique cuisine, of course. They love to make delicious dishes that you can’t really find outside of Italy. What I am saying is that the pizza, pasta, and tomato sauce you probably think of when you think about Italian food are all very Americanized dishes.
Eggs are some of the world’s most uncomplicated food stuffs. Just crack one open, cook it the way you want it to be cooked (e.g fried, boiled, poached, baked, etcetera), and serve. You get a ready meal in just a few minutes.
