Julia Child's classic recipe. The cubed beef must be perfectly dry before it goes in the pot otherwise it won't brown perfectly. And that is what this recipe is going for: perfection. https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8064/8166450629_8cb5e716ef_b.jpg
Yeast-risen flatbread called injera made with teff flour is the special national dish we had at our Eritrean friend, Bēylula's place. It is unique not just because we had it in the Netherlands, it was special because it was homemade by her mother and we were totally spoiled by their warmth and hospitality. Wat or Tsebhi is a very delicious stew made with the special spices. The injera tastes very similar to dosa in the Indian cuisine. There is one vegetable dish with beans that I really like very much. Overall, this was a very wonderful treat.

This is the Layered Potato Casserole (Hungarian Rakott Krumpli) recipe which I've learn to make it from my Hungarian mother-in-law. Some families have a different version, but after you've made it the first time, you will know how you want to modify it to make it your own personal taste. It is a very delicious and hearty comfort food, a little heavy but it can last you for the entire day. This dish is essentially requiring the sour cream. In Hungary, it is called tejföl in English Smetana. As it is a dairy product that is produced by souring heavy cream, Smetana is easily found in Central and Eastern Europe. (It is not the same type of sour cream in Singapore)

About Courtney HillShe grew up in a smaller town in Southwest Missouri and learned most of what she knows about cooking from her mother, who learned from Courtney's grandmother. "I didn't personally grow up on the farm but I have relatives who are farmers and well, let's just say we know a thing or two about good food! I learned the rest of my cooking knowledge from my formal education. I have a Master's degree in Family and Consumer Sciences (Home Economics to the lapers) and I taught high school for 4 years. I decided to stay home with my twins when they were born and have loved being home with them. I still love teaching and the FCS (family and consumer sciences) umbrella of subjects, so I have started this blog to share my knowledge with you."
