I’m a big believer in a hearty meal to start off the day (I usually make a tortilla with eggs, cheese, and chives most mornings) and I had heard things were a lot less formal in Italy. To better prepare myself, I decided to make chocolate-dipped almond biscotti that I quickly discovered was an even better way to start the day (especially when dunked into coffee).

I made knishes once from a boxed mix, but there was no magic in that Manischewitz powder. I finally decided to try making them from scratch last year as a Hanukkah experiment. It took more time and effort than I expected, but the results were batamt - which sounds a little like Yiddish for "the bomb." In any language, they were delicious.

In Sicilan dialect, mangia gioia (pronounced mahn-ja joy-ah) essentially means "Eat, my joy." You will definitely enjoy all the delicious recipes Alicia makes, just like this Dilly Potato Salad.

Living so close to Pike Place Market truly does spoil us. Brunch, being one of my favorite meals to cook and eat, has recently become a fun tradition to try new recipes and variations on the good old favorites.

Good cooking is largely about balance in flavor and texture. This dish is a perfect example. The brussels sprouts are your base. Kind of earthy, kind of bitter. When sautéeing, browning brings out their natural sugars. They’ll still be earthy and bitter, but also a little sweet- something to remember when you add the raisins.

When it comes to sandwiches, it's almost always better to have seven layers than one.

If you like caprese you have to try this, it's perfect for spring or summer and it obviously presents well. We basically ate it all ourselves after I made it. You don't have to use crostini either, it's delish on it's own.

I know I don’t need to tell you why. I mean, do people seriously still make French toast the old-school way, slice by slice in a skillet?

This was this first time I made baklava, so I used a tried and true recipe from my friend, Peter J. Rudy. While this recipe might not be perfectly authentic....to my taste buds, it was perfectly tasty.

I want to share a simple recipe with you that I make every week. Sometimes a couple of times a week. The great thing about this recipe is that is only takes a few minutes to make. Literally 3 minutes.

Yes, these burgers were a little out of the ordinary, but absolutely amazing. With bacon and cream cheese, fresh ground very lean beef, nice seasonings and lettuce, tomatoes and grilled sweet onions on top. You wouldn’t believe how easy they are to make, if you own a meat grinder. And -don’t run away- they are relatively low-fat!

This delicious pie was certainly worthy of such praise. It is frozen and tastes like ice cream. It has a great combination of strawberry, orange, and lime flavor with a salty pretzel crust. It is perfect for Cinco de Mayo or any hot summer day.

Puff pastry is just so decadent, and the filling is luscious. They're somewhat heartier than American "pot pies," since they don't include vegetables. If you want, you could easily add some chopped veggies into the meat mixture.

This Chicken Casserole is so simple to make and is real home made Italian style cooking that never fails to meet the taste test.

Michelle loves French Cuisine and French culture. This Noix de rumsteck à la croque aux herbes et pommes croustillantes pour mon mari, translated to Grilled Steak with Crispy Herbs and Potatoes is one of her favorite dish that she loves to make for her husband.

It’s just a twist on a quesadilla, making it into a casserole and serving it up like a pie. It’s also easily customizable. To add more protein for example, just crumble a veggie burger into the filling or stir in some diced tofu.
