Unstuffed Bell Peppers

Rating: 4.36 stars
44
A classic family favorite deconstructed. My kids love stuffed green peppers, but don't like to eat the whole peppers, so I came up with this to make it more appealing to my picky eaters.

Deviled Chicken Breasts

Quick and easy, this is an excellent mid-week dish.

Lemon Blueberry Pavlova

My favorite way to enjoy lemon meringue is with pavlova. The meringue base cools and dries out slowly, creating a crispy, crunchy crust on the outside which contrasts beautifully with a soft, sticky center. Topped with an intense lemon curd filling, fresh blueberries, and a homemade blueberry sauce, this dessert takes a little bit of time to make but is also simple and easy to pull off!

Salmon Croquettes with Fresh Salmon

These croquettes are made with fresh salmon, but still cook really quickly. They are great to snack on as an appetizer dipped into some tartar or remoulade sauce, over a green salad, or with some wild rice and veggies on the side.

Kimchi Fried Rice

Rating: 4.5 stars

This is a very basic kimchi fried rice, a humble dish made with leftover rice, kimchi, and usually a processed meat like Spam®. In this recipe I used cubed ham and veggies I had in the fridge. Serve with a sunny side up egg over top if you like.

Rich and creamy! I have found that Parmesan cheese doesn't melt well, and often substitute Gruyere cheese.

You can keep the batter covered in the fridge for up to a week. Just be sure to whisk well before using again. You may also use whole wheat flour for this recipe.

This is a family recipe that has been developed only over the last 5 years. In this short time it's made me famous in our close circle, but until now I've never shared it with anyone.

A lovely, crispy waffle perfect for the morning.

The Real Mojito

Rating: 4.74 stars
477
This is an authentic recipe for mojito. I sized the recipe for one serving, but you can adjust it accordingly and make a pitcher full. It's a very refreshing drink for hot summer days. Be careful when drinking it, however. If you make a pitcher you might be tempted to drink the whole thing yourself, and you just might find yourself talking Spanish in no time! Tonic water can be substituted instead of the soda water but the taste is different and somewhat bitter.

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Rating: 4.71 stars
2748
My grandmother's recipe for roasted chicken. We are German and she used to do it this way all the time. I never have had a chicken this juicy before; this little trick works and makes the people eating it go silent. It's funny. We nibble on the celery after.

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Rating: 4.7 stars
2654
This is a great recipe when you don't want to wait for the dough to rise. You just mix it and allow it to rest for 5 minutes and then it's ready to go!! It yields a soft, chewy crust. For a real treat, I recommend you use bread flour and bake it on a pizza stone, but all-purpose flour works well too. Enjoy!

Quick and easy sugar cookies! They are really good, plain or with candies in them. My friend uses chocolate mints on top, and they're great!

Simple Macaroni and Cheese

Rating: 4.41 stars
534
A very quick and easy fix to a tasty side-dish. Fancy, designer mac and cheese often costs forty or fifty dollars to prepare when you have so many exotic and expensive cheeses, but they aren't always the best tasting. This recipe is cheap and tasty.

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Rating: 4.8 stars
2164
Authentic Italian-style risotto cooked the slow and painful way, but oh so worth it. Complements grilled meats and chicken dishes very well. Check the rice by biting into it. It should be slightly al dente (or resist slightly to the tooth but not be hard in the center).

The Best Banana Pudding

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Rating: 4.64 stars

These muffins are extra large and yummy with the sugary-cinnamon crumb topping. I usually double the recipe and fill the muffin cups just to the top edge for a wonderful extra-generously-sized deli style muffin. Add extra blueberries too, if you want!

This cake was sent home from our children's school. It is the simplest, great tasting cake I've ever made. Great to make with the kids, especially for cupcakes.

This is a great recipe to make your own fajita seasoning. No bouillon cubes means this is perfect for vegetarians too! Make up a larger batch and store in an airtight container for future use.

Chef John's Fresh Salmon Cakes

Rating: 4.79 stars
206
Salmon cakes are one of my go-to emergency meals. Every once in a while I like to use fresh salmon. Salmon is one of those products, like chicken, that's very easy to get into a rut with. People generally find a few recipes that work for them, and just stay with those, but this fairly simple preparation should be easy to add to anyone's rotation. Serve with lemon wedge and remoulade sauce. You can use any bread crumbs instead of panko breadcrumbs, if desired.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Rating: 4.54 stars
4163
This is my husband's favorite dish, and he considers it a special occasion every time I make it. The creamy cheese sauce and the tender potatoes in this classic French dish combine to make a deliciously addictive experience. It's a great side dish with a roast pork loin or beef tenderloin. Add a green salad and French bread, and you have found the magic path to a man's heart. To avoid lumps in your sauce, add the milk just a little at a time as you stir the flour and butter. Experiment with different cheeses for variety.

Microwave Baked Potato

Rating: 4.17 stars
283
If you want the yummy taste of a slowly baked potato but aren't patient enough, or don't have the know-how to bake it in an oven, this is for you. Give it 12 minutes and get a mouth-watering, taste bud-tingling treat.

German Hamburgers (Frikadellen)

Rating: 4.29 stars
32
The original hamburger, these are served like a flattened meatball with some steamed string beans and salad. I also like to use this recipe to make Swedish meatballs (but omit the paprika). My Aunt in Hamburg, Germany taught me this recipe and I've been making them ever since. Serve with steamed string beans and tossed salad. Or serve on a Kaiser roll with lettuce, tomato, pickled cucumbers, finely sliced deep fried onions and curry ketchup.

Bucatini Cacio e Pepe (Roman Sheep Herder's Pasta)

Rating: 4.65 stars
12
This peasant food comes from Roman sheep herders who had little time and money to spend on eating. They used their sheep's cheese and a bit of the water that cooked the pasta to create a cream, then added black pepper to give it some extra flavor. Cheap, easy, and fast: this was perfect for them and for us even today!

Chef John's Perfect Prime Rib

Rating: 4.76 stars
1448
This is a specific formula for achieving a perfectly pink prime rib cooked somewhere a shade under medium rare. To use this method you must have a full-sized, modern oven with a digital temperature setting that indicates when it is preheated. Older ovens with manual controls can vary greatly, and the doors may not have the proper insulation.

Soft Oatmeal Cookies
