Hattie Carnegie mentioned in an interview that she had a weakness for the Austrian cuisine from her homeland.  In an effort to hang on to their Austrian culture, Hattie's mother often used Austrian recipes and taught Hattie how to make these dishes, since it was her culture and Hattie loved it so. I decided to look up some recipes and share them. Unfortunately, because these recipes are from Austria, these recipes are in grams and I don't know the conversions. You could probably find them in any cookbook though. 

For easier research-All recipes are now in categories starting with:
