Vaselopita - Greek New Years Cake

Costas French Market Doughnuts (Beignets)

Rating: 4.5 stars 259
As kids, we always put in a heart-filled request for these on Christmas Eve. It was quite a family affair - my mom would make up the dough, my dad would roll them out and cut them and then after frying them up, us kids would take turns shaking them in a paper bag with powdered sugar! I finally got to go to New Orleans and I was excited to get to try 'the real thing' at the famous Cafe Du Monde...I was SO HAPPY because my husband and I both said our recipe was a near carbon copy of CAFE DU MONDE! We've made this recipe for over 40 years and I promise it won't disappoint!

Pineapple Fried Quinoa

Rating: 4.5 stars 59
Like pineapple fried rice, but with the ancient grain quinoa. Simple to make and bursting with Asian flavors! Always nice with fresh pineapple, but canned or frozen work well, too.

Spinach Brownies

Rating: 4.5 stars 1418
They look like brownies, but they're not sweet! Here's a wonderful way to have spinach. This is a treat my girls love to eat. Two 10 ounce packages frozen spinach, cooked, may be substituted for fresh.

Hearty Chicken Tortilla Soup with Beans

Rating: 5 stars 21
This filling chicken tortilla soup will leave bellies full and happy, and is boyfriend-approved. For a spicier soup add a diced jalapeno to the onions, or a 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper. Garnish soup with shredded jack cheese, avocado, cilantro, lime slices, and crispy tortilla strips if desired.
