My sister spent 2 weeks burning the midnight oil on Ancestry.com working on extending our family tree branches back to its roots. She was attempting to find Irish heritage since she was going to be taking a trip to Ireland. Where she is right now!- She did not have luck finding Irish blood in our tree. She did how ever find that our family roots back in this town for many many generations. More than likely we were one of the first settlers in the area. Once she made it further she found most all of our heritage comes from Germany.
This makes so much sense to me looking at the style of cooking my grandmother had. The home made noodles that remind me that of the German's spaetzle.
All of these things coming in to play I have decided to get my hands on a GOOD German cook book. When I do get my hands on one that seems authentic that is actually in English ... (Even tho I took 3 years of German in school I'm not sure I could manage my way around a cook book) I am going to cook and post many items from said cook book.
If anyone out there in blog land - knows of any REALLY good German cook books. I would love names, suggestions, or even ideas.
Thank you for any help in advanced!!-
