German Pancake

German Pancake by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a traditional German oven pancake. If you've never had one, you've got to make this. It is soo delicious and nothing like a regular pancake.

Perfect New York Style Pizza Dough

Perfect New York Style Pizza Dough by John Spottiswood

I have a friend, Pete Miller, who has become a pizza guru. He attended classes held by Tony Gemignani (pizza god), and has tried endless recipes at home. So I asked him for his ultimate pizza dough recipe and he gave me this. It's adapted from the book PIZZA by Diane Morgan and Tony Gemignani. The recipe in the book calls for…

Homemade Grilled Flatbread

Homemade Grilled Flatbread by John Spottiswood

I couldn't find any authentic pita bread or other flat bread at my local grocery store, so I decided to try grilling my own. It turned out to be really fun and not too difficult. And the taste was amazing. The hardest part was rolling out the dough (I doubled the recipe). Fortunately, I was able to do that while watching a playoff…

Pasta with Butter and Parmesan Cheese

Pasta with Butter and Parmesan Cheese by John Spottiswood

I've been cooking this recipe for so long, and it is so simple, that I have often overlooked posting it. We had it with our grilled chicken this week, and finally I'm putting it online. Marcella Hazan says this method of cooking pasta has eclipsed all others as the favorite amongst Northern Italians. And I must say it's among the…

Homemade Swedish Pancakes

Homemade Swedish Pancakes by Nancy Miyasaki

I love swedish pancakes and have made them for a few years from a mix I bought at Trader Joes. I was out of the mix a few weeks ago, so I tried making them from scratch. It turned out to be incredibly simple and the kids love these as much if not more as the pre-packaged mix. It's also quite a bit cheaper and means one less box I…

Buttermilk Banana Bread

Buttermilk Banana Bread by Nancy Miyasaki

I've made dozens of different types of banana bread, and this is one of my favorites. Our kids devoured it! My oldest told me "this is the best banana bread you've ever made, Mom." That's high praise from a 9th grader!

Gold Medal Best Ever Banana Bread

Gold Medal Best Ever Banana Bread by Nancy Miyasaki

I make a lot of banana bread because my kids and husband both love it. I've tried a lot of different recipes, but have found none better that this slight adaptation of the one on the back of the General Mills Gold Medal flour bag. I think they must have tested a lot of different versions before settling on this one, because it is…

Swedish Oatmeal Pancakes

Swedish Oatmeal Pancakes by John Spottiswood

I love my wife's traditional swedish pancake recipe. However, I feel much better when I eat a healthy breakfast of oatmeal, so I tried combining the two. I think the combination is wonderful. It still has the chewy, crepe-like texture of the traditional swedish pancake, with just a bit of nutty whole grain texture. Our kids say…

Spaetzle

Spaetzle by John Spottiswood

This is a simple and delicious recipe for Spaetzle. My friend Helmut normally does not add oil to his Spaetzle, but we did last night because it said to on the recipe on our Spaetzle maker. I think it helped make the dough slightly easier to work with and less sticky. Feel free to do without if you prefer.

Aunt Violet's Swedish Rye Bread

Aunt Violet's Swedish Rye Bread by Amos Miller

Swedes have always made hearty, highly flavored breads and rye always seems to play a part, the foundation for many avenues of baking exploration. Aunt Violet was one of my paternal grandfather's sisters. This is her recipe 'from home'. It seems each of the 7 Moller children brought fragments of family recipes with them through…

Moroccan Bread

Moroccan Bread by Amos Miller

It is interesting to me that one of my grandfathers, a West Virginian who lived at the end of Horsemill Hollow, always referred to bread as 'the staff of life'. As anyone who has traveled to North Africa knows, bread is a special food, treated with the utmost respect and central to every meal. My Mountaineer gramps would have much…

This is my version of a vegetarian split pea soup that is as tasty and comforting as the ham version except there is not meat added.

Black Bean and Tomato Quinoa

Black Bean and Tomato Quinoa by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a delicious quinoa recipe that we served with our garlic lime grilled pork chops. This is flavorful enough that you'll want to serve it with a relatively simple grilled dish. It would go wonderfully with grilled fish, chicken, or steak. Or try it with the pork recipe linked below.

Mexican Brown Rice, Quinoa and Black Bean Salad

Mexican Brown Rice, Quinoa and Black Bean Salad by Salad Foodie

As a main dish or a side to any number of meats or fish meals, this perky bright salad is tasty and healthy. The recipe is from the USA Rice Federation, with only slight modifications. (You can also substitute brown rice for the quinoa for simplicity.) One side serving (7/8 cup salad) provides 215 calories; 31 G. carbohydrate; 5.6 G…
