Finally, it’s here. The Cafe Lattes Tres Leches Cake. If you follow me (please do!) you might remember a blogging fail when I dropped the Cafe Lattes Tres Leches Cake in February, The Cake of Broken Dreams.

New England Clam Chowder

New England Clam Chowder

So last week I posted Philly Cheesesteak Sliders (in honor of the Philadelphia Eagles – that’s before I knew how badly our Vikings were going to be trounced!) This week, I thought what the heck. New England Clam Chowder was in order to represent the New England Patriots. For the Superbowl, eh? You betcha. We’re hosting it in Minneapolis this year, so that’s exciting. And whether the Eagles or the Patriots win, you’ll have a win if you serve this New England Clam Chowder.

New England Clam Chowder – make this as thick or as thin as you’d like, very easily!

Cheesy Potato Sausage Soup - Instant Pot or Stove-top

Cheesy Potato Sausage Soup – Instant Pot or Stove-top

Oh, but I do love me some soup. Especially in the fall. And since I had some sausage left after making Smoked Sausage and White Bean Soup in the Instant Pot the other day, I thought I’d make more soup, but take it in another direction. I could hardly think of a better use for that sausage than Cheesy Potato Sausage Soup – Instant Pot or Stove-top.

Simple American Style Soused Chicken

Simple American Style Soused Chicken

Here’s another one of my recipes that tastes and looks all “gourmet” but gets dinner on the table in no time at all – Soused Chicken. I’ve made this for years and the somewhat unusual flavoring gets rave reviews. Seriously, people think you’re going all fancy whenever wine and a little cream or half and half are in the picture.

Old Time Corn Pudding

Old Time Corn Pudding

I was introduced to Corn Pudding late in life, I’m afraid, which is a bit of a shame because my down-home Old Time Corn Pudding is scrumptious, easy and really a nice side for anything barbecued or grilled. It’s also a really nice side for special occasions and holidays, too. Everyone will smile when they see Old Time Corn Pudding at the table.

Dried Cranberry & Tea Infused Scones

Are you a scone lover? Or have you only had overly dry, crumbly scones, perhaps redeemed only by the amount of icing on top? Not that I have anything against icing…but it should go on a really GOOD scone, right? This scone has no icing, but a sprinkle of sugar over the top gives it a nice sheen and a bit of sweetness.

Oven Baked Eggs Hotel Eggs

Oven Baked Eggs-Hotel Eggs

Oven Baked Eggs Hotel Eggs turn out so light, fluffy and gorgeous they’re my go-to method whenever I have a crowd. Super easy to make, they’re far easier than standing at the stove and, frankly, turn out better. Every time.

Quiche Lorraine Cooks Illustrated Version

Quiche Lorraine Cooks Illustrated

It’s hard to go wrong with Quiche. It’s the perfect, make-ahead recipe for breakfast, brunch or a light dinner. Maybe in front of a cozy fire in the winter or on the deck with a glass of wine on a balmy summer evening. A little side salad or some fruit and you’re set. While I love just about any Quiche, there is one quiche that is the pinnacle of all Quiche. Or is it Quiches? It’s this Quiche Lorraine Cook’s Illustrated version.
