Martha and her mother made a delicious Polish version of Stuffed Cabbage leaves, called golabki. The filling was a simple one -- rice and meat with onions, garlic, celery, cloves, and green apple -- and the dish was as tasty as it was comforting. Served with a hot tomato sauce and creamy sour cream, it's a perfect meal for the winter season.
