Like Beer and Sausage? Roast Them Together With Peppers and Onions For an Easy Fall Dinner

Instead of getting charred and snappy like they would on the grill, these German-style garlic sausages wind up with a nice, evenly browned surface thanks to a hot oven and baste in beer, olive oil and red wine vinegar.

Ideas in Food vs. Rote Grütze (German Red Fruit and Groats Dessert)

In name, Dutch Apple Pancakes—which are also called German Pancakes or Dutch Babies—sound similar to traditional pancakes. In reality, they're more like a popover.
