German
During the middle and late 19th century, Wisconsin and the Milwaukee area became the final destination of many German immigrants fleeing the Revolution of 1848. In Wisconsin they found the inexpensive land and the freedoms they sought. The German heritage and influence in the Milwaukee area is widespread and none is more prominent than the German culinary influence at places like Mader’s, Karl Ratzsch’s, Usingers and more. Today, I’ll prepare a terrific menu with this German heritage in mind. You can sample all of these foods and take home the recipes to prepare for your family…
Spinach Salad with Hot Bacon Dressing
Jaeger-Style Pork Schnitzel with
German Potato Dumplings
Versunken Apfelkuchen (German Apple Cake)

Fabulous Steakhouse-style Holiday Get-together
Steakhouses are great (particularly if someone else is paying) because you get to indulge yourself in a borderline dangerous amount of beef in the classiest of surroundings. But that's only part of the story. The unsung heroes that make any steakhouse visit complete are the sides and desserts. So, tonight I've put together a full classic steakhouse menu for you to make at home. It's more intimate and fun to eat with family and friends at home and by staying home you can treat everyone to a great meal without taking a second mortgage! I'll prepare...
Beef Wellington with Madiera Sauce
Hasselback Potatoes with Herbs
Creamed Peas
Flaming Cherries Jubilee with Ice Cream
