This is a great cheesecake. I get a lot of requests for the recipe.

Peanut Blossoms II

Rating: 4.5 stars 692
I make these every year for our annual cookie open house. We make about 15 to 20 different kinds of cookies and have a 4 hour open house with friends. We then prepare cookie trays to take to shut ins and freeze the rest to enjoy all year long. My husband helps with this four day project! He's retired ... and I'm partially retired. It has been a long standing tradition that we enjoy every year!

Chef John's Lemon Bars

Rating: 5 stars 1205
This is one of my favorite cookies of all time, although technically they're closer to a pie than a cookie. Nothing prepares you for that intense, awesome sweet-tart lemon flavor and custard, perfectly contrasted against that crisp, sweet buttery shortbread cookie.

Polish Gołąbki (Stuffed Cabbage Rolls)

Rating: 4.5 stars 11
This Polish dish is my grandma's recipe. It is easier to do in large batches since the prep is time consuming. I double or triple the recipe and bake them in an electric roasting pan. I freeze any extras and when they come out of the freezer, they taste even better because the cabbage has gotten more tender. My grandma made these with various combinations of beef, veal, and pork and was always experimenting to get them right. I typed this up based on her notes, but she cooked as I do. Experiment with the meats and the flavors until you get something you like. I like to mix up the type of spices I use, sometimes they are plainer with just the marjoram or sometimes I use Italian seasoning.

Breakfast Cups

This is a good way to get the morning going. Just give yourself about an hour. They are filling and versatile. Kids can also help some.

Polish Style Lasagna

Rating: 4 stars 182
Rich with potatoes, pasta, onion, butter and cream cheese, this pierogi-like dish is the best! It's also quick and easy to make. Serve with your favorite vegetable.
