Puff Pastry Reuben Roll Up

In Dianes Kitchen


Reubens are one of my favorite sandwiches. What a unique way to make them using Puff Pastry, another favorite of mine. Everything is in there….corned beef, sauerkraut, Baby Swiss Cheese and Thousand Island Dressing all rolled up inside a delicious Puff Pastry. Can it get any better?

Adapted from:




Rinse the sauerkraut really

good with cold water.


Using the back of a spoon, press all

of the water out of the sauerkraut.


Take one thawed Puff Pastry out of the box.


Open it up and lay it flat on

a lightly floured counter.


Using a rolling pin, roll the dough from

one short end toward the other short

end making the dough about 16” long.

Don’t roll it any wider.


Spread Thousand Island Dressing

all over the dough keeping it

about an inch from the edges. 


Sprinkle caraway seeds over the dressing.


Place the rinsed sauerkraut

evenly over the dressing.

How to Make Maraschino Cherries – Recipe and History

Authentic Italian Recipes from Nonna Box

A Japanese legend tells of a warrior who became so old that he outlived his family. His most precious memory was of playing underneath a cherry tree, but when it died, he was so devastated that he wanted to die too, despite the fact that  a new tree had been planted nearby. That winter, the old warrior begged the tree to blossom once more and vowed that he would take his own life if his wish be granted. It was and the old man committed hara-kiri under the dead tree, his spirit and his blood soaking down to the roots to color, forever, the fruit of the tree. It is said that the tree blooms every year on the old warrior’s birthday.

Roasted Garlic

In Dianes Kitchen


Do you love garlic?  Have you ever tried it roasted? This is a fabulous way to use it in any recipe because you use it just like you would a fresh garlic clove. Roasting garlic gives it a milder and sweeter taste by taking away the harshness of fresh garlic. After roasting, it will keep for a couple of weeks in the refrigerator or do like I do and freeze it in teaspoon size portions for months.
