The first time I made cabbage rolls, I followed a recipe I found online and it took FOREVER to make. They were delicious cabbage rolls, but I was put off with how long they took to make. So, I did not make them again for a long time!
Last week, I thought there was no way that cabbage rolls would take THAT long to make. There had to be an easier way to make them. So, I searched once again online and found a recipe that was so easy to make that I was shocked! I was also excited!
I gathered all the ingredients and started making cabbage rolls. This time, I did not really follow the directions but instead, I added other stuff and made that recipe my own.
It is always fun to create your own dishes and alter recipes. My creative side comes out in the kitchen! My cabbage rolls came out SO delicious that is was criminal! 🙂
