Caramelized Onion White Bean Dip

This creamy white bean dip is a delicious and healthy appetizer with a touch of sweetness from the caramelized onions that is perfect for serving with crackers or vegetables. 

Chicken Curry

This chicken curry recipe has my favorite elements of Indian takeout along with the benefits of home cooking and comfort food. This curry combines chicken, potatoes, and chickpeas in a sauce that balances the spiciness from the curry seasonings with the creaminess from the yogurt.

Rigatoni with Fennel, Sausage, and Tomato

Caramelized fennel, spicy Italian sausage, and fresh cherry tomatoes come together to create a delicious pasta recipe perfect for weeknight dinners.

Honey almond ice cream is a perfect topping for fruit crisps.

One of my favorite treats at the Minnesota State Fair is a honey and sunflower seed ice cream. It inspired this honey almond ice cream recipe that has the perfect combination of floral honey flavors and a touch of nuttiness.

Potato Frittata

Frittata is a versatile dish that is perfect for any meal. This delicious frittata recipe combines the creaminess of mascarpone with cheddar cheese finished under the broiler for a nicely toasted top layer.

Vanilla Bourbon Ice Cream

Combining vanilla and bourbon make an exceptional ice cream. This bourbon vanilla ice cream recipe is reminiscent of classic vanilla ice cream with just enough bourbon to make it stand out. 

Kimchi Fried Rice

This fried rice recipe uses kimchi and Gochujang to create a delicious twist on traditional fried rice recipes.  Kimchi and Gouchujang, which is a Korean chili paste, are both fermented and a bit spicy so they bring depth and heat to the recipe.

Egg Pasta with Spinach, Mushrooms, and Tarragon-Mustard Cream Sauce

This easy vegetarian recipe combines mushrooms, spinach, and shallots with egg pasta and a creamy tarragon mustard sauce. 

Lamb Ragù

Pasta with meat sauce, otherwise known as a ragù, is a classic Italian dish. This version of lamb ragù is a twist on the original that has a touch of smoky flavor from cumin and smoked paprika, freshness from mint, and a bit of creaminess from feta.

Andouille Sausage, Pepper, and Potato Hash

This hash combines potatoes, onions, red peppers and Andouille sausage for an easy breakfast or dinner dish. Its even better with a soft-cooked fried egg on top.
