  • 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.

  • Cauliflower-Cashew Soup

    Cauliflower-Cashew Soup

    It’s impossible to tell that there isn’t cream in this tasty soup. I imagine a good blender can make a difference on the texture.

  • Satsuma Mandarin Sorbet

    Satsuma Mandarin Sorbet

    Every winter we buy 2-3 bushels of satsuma mandarins from the local Asian market. This year we had a lot left over and were looking for ways to use them. I started making ice cream this weekend so thought it would be nice to try this out. It retained all the fresh flavor of the fruit and was incredibly smooth.

  • Tofu Sauce

  • 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.

  • Berry Pudding

    Berry Pudding

    Summer berry pudding is proof that with a handful of good ingredients, you can make an elegant dessert that tastes as good as it looks. Put simply, this dessert is just some stale bread and berries with a bit of sugar refrigerated in a bowl overnight. While this may be an accurate description of the level of effort, it’s a woefully inadequate description of the magic that happens when these humble ingredients come together.
