Last week, I uploaded a recipe according to my DNA results, which you can find > Click here. This week I will be sharing a recipe from my husbands country. Alex is of a Serbian decent but was born in Sarajevo, Bosnia in 1990 before Yugoslavia had split. Before the split had taken place a lot people constantly moved around. These results meant a lot to Alex as it gave him more of an insight to his ancestry.


DNA Results:

East Europe: (Northeast Italy & Bosnia and Herzegovina)-  62%


South Europe: (Italy & Greece) – 19%

Caucasus: (Iraq, Syria, Turkey) – 5%

European Jewish: (Russia, Hungary, Israel) – 2%

North Africa -(Morocco, Western Sahara, Algeria, Libya) – 1%

So, as you can see, the results are a lot different from mine, a lot different regions.


I am going to be sharing a recipe for Serbian Plum Dumplings otherwise known as Knedle. This is something that Alex’s Grandma makes a lot, I will be using her recipe because I think we can all agree that Grandma’s are always the best cooks!  Knedle is mainly a dessert dish made using mashed potatoes and plums.


  • 4 Medium Potatoes
  • 2 eggs (beaten)
  • 5 Tablespoon of Unsalted Butter
  • Ripened Plums
  • Cinnamon
  • 1.5 All Purpose Flour
  • Powdered Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup of Breadcrumbs


Step 1: Wash, peel and boil the potatoes in a pan., once the potatoes are boiled mash them and let them cool. In a bowl add the potatoes and the beaten eggs, slowly add the flour and keep whisking until it becomes a dough like consistency.

Step 2: Sprinkle some flour on your hands, take a small amount dough, pat in flat in the palm of your hand, place a plum in the middle and bring the sides over and close it off making them into little balls. Add the dough balls into boiling water and cook for about 15-20 minutes.  Remove and place them in a plate

Step 3:  Melt the butter in a skillet, pour the breadcrumbs in and cook them until the are brown. Once the bread crumbs are golden brown in color cover the dough balls one by one.

Optional: You can sprinkle powdered sugar and cinnamon over the Knedle for a sweeter taste.
