Green Pea and Mint Soup

This refreshing cold soup is a celebration of spring vegetables with a generous amount of green peas and fresh mint. It is very simple to make, and it looks beautiful when served.

Panko-Breaded Fried Razor Clams

Rating: 4.68 stars
I grew up on the West Coast where these tasty little treats are found. You can vary the amount of ingredients used in the recipe according to the number of clams you have, but be sure to use real Parmesan cheese and only panko crumbs, not regular bread crumbs. Pound the necks with a meat tenderizer, or deep fry them, if desired. These are delicious!!!

Grilled Salmon I

A simple soy sauce and brown sugar marinade, with hints of lemon and garlic, are the perfect salty-sweet complement to rich salmon fillets. Even my 9 year old loves this recipe!

Cedar Planked Salmon

Rating: 4.84 stars
This is a dish my brother prepared for me in Seattle. It is by far the best salmon I've ever eaten. I like to serve it with an Asian-inspired rice and roasted asparagus.

Chinese Pork Dumplings

In Seattle's International District, Liana Cafe House sells traditional Chinese pork dumplings from a tiny takeout shop. See how to make them at home.

Best Ever Caramel Apple Crisp

Rating: 4.64 stars
When our class visited an apple farm this fall, we realized that we all shared a common love apples dipped in caramel. We created this really easy dessert that the whole family can enjoy.

Texas Sausage Kolaches (Klobasneks)

Rating: 5 stars
I grew up in Central Texas, where kolaches and sausage kolaches (also called klobasneks) were plentiful. Every donut shop and bakery had them. Then I moved to Seattle, where nobody had heard of them! I couldn't find a decent recipe online. Everything I tried didn't turn out as fluffy, sweet, and heavenly as the kolaches I know and love. I cobbled together this recipe for what I think is the perfect sausage kolache.

Fresh Cherry Cobbler

Rating: 4.32 stars
This is a delicious cherry cobbler made with fresh cherries instead of canned. It may take a little longer to make because you need to pit the cherries, but it is well worth it when you taste the finished product.

Good for You Greek Salad

Rating: 4.64 stars
A yummy and low-fat Greek salad recipe. You can use two green onions instead of the small red onion, if you wish.
