Package from the north

My sister Dani sent us a package in May and I already lost any hope of it arriving.

But it did, today:) YAY!

I noticed a funny smell coming from the package and when I opened it, some yellow powder came out. (I really would like to know what the post office workers from around the world suspected was in the package:) It turns out, my sister had sent us some dressing mixes and one of the baggies with the Cheese Nacho Dip mix had opened somewhere between Canada and Paraguay.

After I cleaned everything up, I sat down to enjoy the best part of the package: a recipe book I had been looking out for for a while. Mennonite Girls Can Cook!

 (wierd picture: book on my lap:)

There are so many great tasting recipes in this book, I recommend it to everyone who likes good, home-cooked meals.

This is comfort food at its best!

Waffles with Vanilla Custard and some delish looking raspberry sauce on top.

Chicken noodle soup, looks just as good as my Oma's.

This one I have wanted to try for a while: Rolled up Kielke. (Kielke is a homemade pasta/noodle)

I can just imagine how good this will be with baked farmer sausage on the side!

 Wareniki is a well-known recipe in our Mennonite culture. I never liked them as a child, but love them now. (Pasta pockets filled with cottage cheese drenched in a creamy sauce. )

This is one of the first recipes I ever tried from the Mennonite Girls Can Cook blog. It's my signature Easter dish (at least has been last year and this year:)

These cinnamon roll-like Maple Twists are delicious!

My Mom made these "Pies-in-a-pocket" for my oldest sister's wedding and we loved snacking on the leftovers!

Thanks Dani, for sending this recipe book to Caroline and me.
 I don't think she'll get her turn with it anytime soon:)

Have a great week, all my readers, commenters and lovely lurkers:)
