    This is a Cape Verdean classic. I grew up in an area with a large Cape Verdean population and this was a common quick, easy, and traditional dinner at several of my friends' houses. For best results use Portuguese or Cape Verdean canned tuna in oil.

    Recipe #158917

    This is a somewhat soupier version of Arroz con Pollo. I hadn't made it in years and I made it again last night. It's a hit!!

    Recipe #186581

    This is a great recipe that I put together based on a favorite dish at a local restaurant. Usually I would use olive oil in a dish like this, but the butter really makes it. For the crushed red pepper I use a Portuguese product called pimenta moida that is usually marketed in the U.S. by the Goncalves company. If it is not available use Asian red chili and garlic paste and cut back a little bit on it. Preparation time includes marinating.

    Recipe #313965

    This is an adaptation of a recipe from my ex's mother. It is a Brazilian-style coconut flan. This is always a crowd pleaser at a dinner party. Fat-free condensed milk works fine (and with 5 eggs and coconut milk its probably a better idea anyway.)

    Recipe #159015

    This is very different from an American carrot cake, but I prefer it. It is very easy and always surprises people. A great everyday cake.

    Recipe #448194

    This is super easy Hungarian Transylvanian comfort food. Cheap, easy, and delicious. Serve this with fried eggs or sausage for a nice meal.

    Recipe #159018

    This is the traditional Romanian bread for different holidays, most prominently Easter and Christmas. It is like a brioche or Portuguese sweet bread, but I think better than either. It is slightly sweet and has a great soft texture. The fillings are optional but add a lot of character. This recipe is based off of several online recipes, some friends' recipes, and my own intuition. It comes out beautifully, but is a labor of love! I'm sure there is a way to use a mixer or bread machine, but I love doing this the old fashioned way. The preparation time includes rising time.

    Recipe #419036

    This is a nice cauliflower soup that my mother used to make. I've added my own touch to it. If you are not a vegetarian, chicken stock would be lovely instead of the vegetable.

    Recipe #262859

    This is a bit of work...but is so delicious and perfect in the spring and summer. I like to make this for parties. It's always very popular. If you can't find pickled cauliflower use fresh florets that you have steamed. You also can substitute the pepperoncini, pickles, and cauliflower with 2 cups of the pre-pacakged giardiniera pickles available in italian grocery stores. This just gets better and better as it sits for a few days in the fridge.

    Recipe #215377

    This is a variation on a recipe from Lidia Bastianich. I added a few ingredients that my family loves and cut out a lot of fat. It was terrific when I made it for lunch the other day. If you cant find Aleppo pepper use crushed red pepper flakes. I love the fragrance that Aleppo pepper gives dishes though. If you used vegetable stock this would be a wonderful and filling vegetarian soup as well.

    Recipe #353845

    This is super food for the winter. Very comforting and filling. For a healthier version use the vegetable oil instead of the bacon.

    Recipe #193380

    This is my favorite Romanian dish. It is popular in summer and during Ortodox lent, when hen you can't eat meat. The recipe can vary a the late summer people put in eggplant sometimes, in the earlier summer zucchini. Use what is best for the season. Make sure to follow the cooking order so that nothing gets too mushy. Serve this with rice. Some people even add a bit of rice towards the end of the cooking time.

    Recipe #191676

    This is an adaptation of a recipe from a friend's mother. In Romania I use turban squash but in the U.S. I think that acorn or butternut would be the best choices. If you would like it to be spicier use some hot pepper paste like Tunisian harissa. This is the way that I usually make it but I wanted to present the simplest version first. Perfect for Thanksgiving.

    Recipe #265268

    I've never tried to give measurements for my gazpacho recipe so here goes nothing. This is always a favorite. The cooking time is chilling time.

    Recipe #316081

    Su boregi is a classic Turkish street food available at many borek shops. It is like mix between a pie and a lasagna. This recipe for a home version is from a friend of mine in Istanbul. I tweaked it a little bit.

    Recipe #163493

    I don't know if this is Libyan or Tunisian, but its a delicious North African way of cooking fish. This is also great cold. I used to cook this a lot on Sundays and bring the leftovers to work on Monday. People's mouths would water when I heated it up in the microwave.

    Recipe #159016

    Good and relatively easy recipe for Jambalaya. I like this really spicy but you can cut down. You can do it with only sausage or only shrimp or both.

    Recipe #187232

    These are delicious!!! The best ones I've ever made. The secret is to knead the mixture for about 10 minutes. Great on the grill or baked in the oven.

    Recipe #187233

    This is the specialty from here in Cluj. The Romanian name is Varza a la Cluj. It's a heavy dish good for the winter. Truly delicious but somewhat complicated. For the more authentic version use pickled cabbage.

    Recipe #159325

    This is a very light and easy soup. Super Hungarian and surprisingly good.
