  • Clafoutis

    Clafoutis

    First had this at a brunch at Beast in Portland, OR in July 2019. They made theirs with blueberries and was topped with whipped crème fraîche and a big slab of candied bacon – it was so good I decided we needed to make it at home and was happily surprised how simple it was…

  • Linguine with White Clam Sauce

    Linguine with White Clam Sauce

    My grandpa Coach got this simple yet amazing recipe years ago from The Willow Inn East in Northfield, IL. Every time I make it it reminds me of him.

  • Lavash

    Lavash

    This is identical to the flatbread sold at delis that costs $6 for three big rounds. Can be baked to a crisp or left slightly soft. It can also be folded to make different shapes.

  • Potato Gnocchi

    Potato Gnocchi

    Just like my grandma Tanya makes…add sauce of your choice.

  • Beef Stew

    The first time I made this I was happily surprised with the result. I thought I had made a mistake the entire time since it didn’t appear to have enough liquid for a stew, but in the end it was amazing.

  • Apfel Käsekuchen

    Apfel Käsekuchen

    Apple is the star of this dish, so use vanilla to lay down a nice neutral base, paint on layers of honey and marzipan then add lemon zest to provide some highlights. The result is a rich decadent dessert you don’t feel horrible about having for breakfast. It’s like all the best parts an apple pie and a soft custardy cheesecake all wrapped in a sweet buttery brioche-like dough.

  • Chicken Parmesan Nuggets

    I decided to try and make this one night when my wife asked me to make dinner for us, keeping in mind the kids would need to eat it too.

  • Baja Style Fish Tacos

    Baja Style Fish Tacos

    I prefer these to grilled fish tacos although they’re not quite as healthy. The yum yum sauce with the cilantro, crispy fish, and the slaw make for an amazing dish.

  • Dutch Baby

    Dutch Baby

    I usually make this on the weekend when I have time to sit around and eat for a while. It’s better than pancakes and probably healthier than waffles or french toast.
