Swedish Stewed Mutton

Season the breast of mutton with salt, pepper, thyme and mace; let stew slowly with 1 onion and 2 cloves of garlic chopped. Add some chopped capers and mushrooms; cook until tender. Then thicken the sauce with flour mixed with a glass of wine and boil up. Serve hot with baked turnips.

French Waffles

Sift 3 cups of flour with 1-1/2 teaspoonfuls of baking-powder and 1/2 teaspoonful of salt. Beat the yolks of 3 eggs; add a tablespoonful of melted butter and 2 cups of warm milk. Add the beaten whites and stir in the flour, making a light batter. Grease the waffle irons and fill with the batter. Bake until a delicate brown. Remove to a hot dish. Serve hot with powdered sugar on top.

German Sweet Pretzels

Mix 1/2 pound of flour with 1/2 pound of fresh butter; add 1/4 pound of sugar, 1 egg and 1 beaten yolk, 1 tablespoonful of sweet cream and some grated lemon peel. Mix thoroughly and mold the dough into small wreaths; brush the top with the yolk of an egg and sprinkle with powdered sweet almonds. Lay in a well-buttered baking-tin and bake until a deep yellow.

French Apple Soufflé

Cook apples and sweeten to taste. Mash well with 1 tablespoonful of butter. Beat the yolks of 3 eggs with 2 tablespoonfuls of sugar, the juice and rind of 1/2 lemon; add the whites beaten to a stiff froth. Put in a buttered pudding-dish and bake in a moderate oven until done.

Italian Roast Beef

Cut several deep incisions in the upper round of beef and press into them lardoons of salt pork. Stick 2 cloves of sliced garlic and 1 dozen cloves in the meat; season with salt and pepper and dredge with flour. Put in the dripping-pan with some hot water and let roast until tender. Serve with boiled macaroni.
