  While in college, I lived in a small Kansas town settled by 
  Volga-Germans.  Many of the folks there still speak German 
  at home.  They are devoutly Catholic.  They throw a GREAT 
  Oktoberfest.  And let me tell you, those guys can cook. I 
  adore Cream, Bean and Noodle Soup, Kuchen, Sour Cream Twists 
  (baked like a roll, but sweet and dense like a donut), and 
  Schenkenfleckereln (could be sadly misspelled since my German 
  is quite rusty, but I know it means something like "speckled 
  noodles" due to carroway seeds). Any idea where to find some 
  of these recipes?  I'd love to find a Volga-German cookbook 
  or website.

Hi KJ,

I didn't find very many Volga-German recipes online. I couldn't locate the noodles recipe.There's one for bierocks below and a few on this website:

  Beerocks 
  A Volga German meat and cabbage pie. 

  .Ingredients:
  . 1 large head cabbage, shredded
  . 2 Yellow onions, chopped
  . 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  . 3-4 lb. seven bone roast
  . 4 tblsp. canola oil
  . 2 tblsp. ground black pepper
  . salt to taste
  . 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper [optional]
  . 3 loaves frozen bread dough [Supermarket frozen food section] 
    or make your own

  Preparation: 
  . In a large skillet, salt and pepper the roast on both sides. 
  Brown off roast on both sides. Add water to cover and cook roast 
  on stove top or a 350 degree oven until roast is well cooked. 
  Set aside and cool. When cool, shred the beef and remove all fat. 
  In another large skillet, saute the onions and garlic until onion 
  is almost golden brown. Add the shredded cabbage and cook until 
  limp. Add salt, pepper and shredded beef to the cabbage mixture 
  and let stand until cool. 
  Assembly:
  . Cut the frozen loaves into 4 sections each and let rise again. 
  Roll out each section into an 8 inch square. Place 2-3 tablespoons 
  of filling onto the square and roll up, folding the sides in so no 
  filling will escape from the roll. Set the Beerocks aside to rise 
  again. Place the beerocks on a foil lined[spray the foil with Pam 
  or other canned oil spray] baking sheet and cook in a 350 degree 
  oven for 25-30 minutes until golden brown. If you like a crusty 
  beerock, spray the rolls with water just as they begin to brown. 
  This may be repeated during the browning process. Serve hot.
