This recipe originates in Valencia which is located on the eastern coast of Spain. It is simple, colorful and flavorful. Prawns and mussels are simply sauteed with onion and garlic, then cooked in a white wine-tomato sauce. It is a good summer main course and can be served with rice.
Convents in Spain were famous for the delicate sweets that were produced within its walls. Nun's Sighs or "Suspiros de Monja" is an example of these traditional desserts. They are golden and crispy on the outside and rich and creamy on the inside. A thick batter is prepared and spoonfuls are fried, then sprinkled with powdered sugar or candied fruit.
These chewy cookies are best eaten when they are fresh from the oven, while the chocolate center is still warm.
This rich, creamy soup will thicken as it cools. Thin with hot water, a tablespoon at a time, to the desired consistency. Lentils provide fiber, folate, and protein, as well as iron. The fresh topping adds vitamin C, plus a dose of quercetin.
This recipe for pork steaks and sauerkraut is a one-pot dinner that can be made in the oven or on the stovetop. Pork steaks come from the Boston butt or pork shoulder cut. If you can't find them, ask your butcher to cut a pork shoulder roast into 3/4-inch slices. Growing up, we had pork steaks a lot because they were (and still are) so reasonable. I updated the sauerkraut with a touch of apple. Here is a larger picture of pork steaks and sauerkraut. Makes 6 servings Pork Steaks and Sauerkraut

Whisk warm milk into the flour mixture to ensure a lump-free sauce. We also recommend shredding your own cheese for a creamier texture. We tested with Cracker Barrel Extra-Sharp Cheddar.
You can use fresh raspberries, but frozen taste just as good.
... but the fruits were so juicy and sweet in their own right that it seemed a crime to cover them up with sugar! Thus, we came up with the nectarine tartine. Not only is it fun to say but it has all the qualities of our favorite kind of summer dish - light, fresh, little or no heat required, and taking full advantage of the season's produce.

Here's a cool, light salad that's great for hot, humid days. If you anticipate having leftovers, toss together only what will be eaten at dinner to keep all the components at their peak.
The nice thing about this dish is that you have the lovely, cool salad contrasting with your warm or hot fish. It works really well and is beautifully refreshing. Feel free to use whatever fish looks nice and fresh, just ask your fishmonger to fillet and pin-bone it for you.
This dish won us over not only because of its great name, but also because it puffs up to great heights while cooking. Because it does not come out as sweet as griddle pancakes, it is traditionally served with lemon juice and powdered sugar, but we find it even more tasty with spoonfuls of Caramelized Pears. Game plan: If you don’t have a cast iron skillet, the pancake can also be made in a large, ovenproof frying pan. This recipe was featured as part of our Winter Cabin Fever story.

Frittelle di Riso, or rice fritters, are a winter tradition in much of Italy, and (In Florence) especially popular on San Giuseppe, Saint Joseph's (March 19). I transcribed this rice fritter recipe while watching wife Elisabetta make them. Though they are quite simple they're also quite good. You'll need:
The thing about risottos is that you can never have enough combinations, and just when you think you?ve done them all, you come up with a new one that hits the spot. The use of vodka instead of wine leaves you with a fragrant freshness when the risotto is cooked, which marries fantastically well with smoky flakes of haddock and the al dente crunch of fine yellow beans. As there is fish in this risotto, you don?t want to include any Parmesan, so bear this in mind. If you?re a risotto fan you?ve got to give this a try.
Marc Murphy grew up eating this intensely cheesy baked spaghetti. "When I was young, we lived in Genoa, where spaghetti is the pasta of choice. This is my mother's version of macaroni and cheese," he says.
All it takes is a sprinkling of salt and pepper to enhance the earthy flavors of the carrots in this simple side dish.

A large rotisserie chicken from your supermarket makes a great shortcut for this recipe.
San Francisco’s Nopa is the ultimate neighborhood restaurant. Though the eatery’s known for its burger, the menu has a distinctly Mediterranean influence. The more sophisticated dishes, such as these lamb riblets, are major crowd-pleasers. What to buy: Denver ribs, also known as riblets, consist of seven to eight ribs that are cut from the lamb breast and belly. You’ll have to special order them from your butcher, so be sure to plan ahead accordingly. And make sure the butcher doesn’t separate them into individual ribs; ask for the whole rack. Harissa is a North African chile and spice paste that adds a nice dose of heat to foods. You can make it yourself, or easily find it in a jar or tube at most gourmet markets. This recipe was featured as part of both our Modern Potluck story and our Bar Snacks photo gallery.
One of the challenges of entertaining is the many food allergies, issues, sensitivities and aversions guests can bring with them to the table. It's impossible to please everyone, but this soup goes a long way towards universal satisfaction and joy. Cashew Tomato Soup has hippie roots but its rich and spicy creaminess makes it a favorite for many carnivores, even though it's vegan -- a fact I seldom mention, unless there's a vegan around to care. On top of that, it's a quick and simple dish that can easily be made ahead of time and reheated just before serving. But don't make it just because it's vegan-friendly and easy. Make it because it's absolutely, amazingly delicious.
My mother's signature dessert. Assemble it just before serving, but you can make the meringue up to two days ahead; store in an airtight container.
Linzer Cookies are great for the holidays and look just as good as they taste. A dough scraper, which can be purchased inexpensively at kitchen stores, makes transferring these star cutouts onto baking sheets a breeze.
Andy Nusser sautés apple rings until they're golden, then serves them with fat chops and a puckery pomegranate vinaigrette. To dress up the dish, he sometimes replaces the apples with quince.
This is just like my mom used to make (OK, apart from the molasses I’ve added). It’s tender and flavorful, and the leftovers make a mean meatloaf sandwich.
De Engelse naam voor deze cake, Victoria-cake, is genoemd naar Victoria Beckham ? o nee, sorry, ik bedoel natuurlijk koningin Victoria (1819-1901)! Of je nu een grote (zoals op de foto), of meerdere kleine, eenpersoonsgebakjes wilt maken, dit is hoe dan ook een perfect klassiek recept voor verjaardagen, feesten en partijen, of gewoon voor bij een doordeweeks theekransje. Ik heb hier aardbeienjam en verse aardbeien gebruikt omdat ik dat erg lekker vind, maar je kunt in plaats daarvan ook frambozen of bramen gebruiken, of een mengsel van alledrie.
Deli meats help turn a salad into a main dish with minimal effort.
Cola in the marinade tenderizes the meat.
So immature they haven't yet formed a papery skin, young garlic bulbs are pearly white and still have their green stems attached. The garlic is mild, with a delicate flavor that makes for a fantastic vinaigrette that Colby Garrelts drizzles over plump veal chops and smoky, charred corn and orzo salad. Look for young garlic at farmers' markets and specialty-food shops in the late spring.
