  • Sauerbraten (sour roast) is considered by most to be Germany’s National dish, but while the basis of the recipe remains the same, variations do occur from region to region.

    Traditionally made with a beef roasting joint (topside or similar) the meat is marinated for two to three days in vinegar and/or beer, spices such as cloves, juniper berries, allspice and peppercorns, bay leaves and onions; and then braised in the marinade for a long period, resulting in very tender melt-in-the-mouth meat.

  • Those who know me well also know I love to tease, especially to tease those who are near and dear to me.

    Obviously, my husband is the most frequent recipient of my jesting comments. I exaggerate the effects of his contemplative nature, describing in great detail his many prayer chairs and their many accompanying books. I wonder aloud at the procrastination that emerges from hours spent in pondering rather than in practicality, but all the while, part of me is watching the power of that prayerfulness. I am being impelled to a similar lifestyle, even if I express it differently.

  • CALABASH—Back when he assisted with the rescue of a team of royal horses during World War II, Julius King Suggs was a few decades younger.

    Little did the corporal in the 42nd Squadron of Gen. George S. Patton’s Third Army know that someday he would be reunited with the offspring of the horses he helped save—the fancy-footed Royal Lipizzaner stallions, right smack at his daughter’s stables on Hickman Road.
