Slow Cooker Mediterranean Lentil Stew

This is an excellent slow cooker recipe... Mix ingredients and let cook. Delicious! Spiced with cumin and coriander and flavored with tomato paste, this veggie-filled lentil stew will keep you warm for winter, and all year round! Good with a loaf of fresh-baked rustic bread! Vegetarian and vegan. Serve with a piece of bread for dipping.

Rich and Simple French Onion Soup

Rating: Unrated
We have been trying French onion soup in restaurants for years and my family and friends agree none can compare to my recipe for taste and simplicity of preparation.

Greek Lemon and Chicken Soup (Avgolemono)

A copycat recipe of my favorite Greek restaurant. Creamy (but dairy-free) chicken and lemon soup. Delicious on its own or served with a Greek salad and bread or pita.

Air Fryer Mini Breakfast Burritos

These air-fried mini burritos are great for a grab 'n go breakfast or even for a midday snack. Leave out the serrano chile pepper for a less spicy version.

Nashville Hot Chicken and Waffle Sandwich

When you want to impress dinner guests in the most delicious way, try this hot chicken waffle sandwich! The waffle is tender and slightly sweet, which balances the spiciness from the chicken perfectly. The chicken is insanely crunchy on the outside with a slightly sticky, spicy glaze. The hot chicken and cold crunch of the slaw is perfect.

Simple Artichoke Dip

Serve with sliced baguettes or pita chips.

Cast Iron Chicken Fajitas

When you don't want to grill outside, use a cast iron skillet on your stove top to create great-tasting chicken fajitas. You'll need a fairly large skillet, at least 12 inches or larger, to handle the chicken and all the vegetables. Just don't forget that last squeeze of lime juice over everything. It adds just the right touch! Serve fajitas with toppings like salsa, pico de gallo, shredded cheese, sour cream, and guacamole.

Strawberry Jam

Rating: Unrated
This is by far the easiest recipe I have found for strawberry jam without using a pectin. The jam is soft, spreadable and delicious.

Chef John's Hot and Sour Soup

I'm very excited to be sharing what is probably the most delicious soup I still haven't done a video for--unless I have and forgot. Yes, it's hot, and yes, it's sour, but it's also so much more, and other than a little bit of slicing and dicing, this is relatively fast and simple to make. This is almost always served as an appetizer in a Chinese restaurant, but if you added some pork to this, or some little fun-sized meatballs, it would make a fantastic meal. Serve with extra sliced green onions on top.

Pancake Poppers

Rating: Unrated
Pancakes didn't turn out so well on my electric stove top, so I invented these. They are light and airy and freeze well too. Try them with strawberry jam, dipped in syrup, or sprinkled with powdered sugar. Perfect for kid and adult brunches! This is a wonderful pancake recipe on its own too.

Honey-Garlic Chicken Thighs
