I love this time of year because during these cold months I can make and eat all of my favorite comfort food. This recipe for One Pan Kielbasa and Cabbage is a favorite of ours. It's a quick and easy dinner, and its ingredients are a part of my Polish roots. I'm also excited to share this post because it's that time of year again for the annual Cookies for Kids Cancer fundraiser. Scroll down a bit for more details.
What is kielbasa
Kielbasa is a form of sausage originating from Poland. In the United States it is most often seen packaged as a U shape. There is no singular form of sausage that is specific to kielbasa, it instead covers a wide variety of Polish Sausage. Kielbasa can be served warmed, grilled, or boiled and is best served with traditional Polish dishes such as sauerkraut or pierogies.
what is the difference between sausage and kielbasa
Kielbasa is known for its coarse texture, garlic seasoning and being made from pork. Kielbasa differs from other sausage varieties in that it the meat and seasonings typically stay the same. Kielbasa is typically not smoked, which is another way that it differs from most sausage.
cookies for kids cancer
For the past several years I've participated in a fundraiser called Cookies for Kids Cancer that raises money for Pediatric Cancer research. Cancer is the #1 cause of death of children by disease in the U.S. There are 40,000 U.S. children actively battling cancer right now. The National Cancer Institute’s budget for childhood cancer is less than 4%. Cancer has affected so many people, donating to fund research can truly change lives.
Our goal is to raise at least $3000. Because these three companies: OXO, Mediavine amd Dixie Crystals have each pledged to match our donations raised through this campaign up to $3000! That means when we raise $1, it turns into $4!
Help us make a difference by donating to Cookies for Kids' Cancer!
