Don't you love imitations that are almost perfect, let alone easy and fun? This fits the bill. Don't tell Kraft.

One of my visitors, Louise Chowanski mentioned very special, unique sweet and tart coleslaw she finds in a local supermarket deli section. Since Louise is a B&B hostess with the mostess (she knows a great recipe when she sees one), she generously shared with me the basic ingredients and amounts and invited me to fiddle. I did. This is a sweet and tangy coleslaw, chock full of apples, toasted almonds, and a hint of maple syrup and orange. It is perfect with BBQ chicken or ribs or alongside grilled salmon. It is so unique it becomes an instant classic. You can use lite sour cream and mayonnaise.

Serve warm with a maple-tinged caramel sauce. Big chunks of apple in a golden batter with a touch of spice. Great for breakfast, brunch or a summery, post BBQ dessert.

Add a touch of fresh, tangy cranberry sauce to this appetizer classic. It just takes minutes to create a buttery bundle, filled with oozing, warm Camembert or Brie cheese, with a scarlet dash of cranberries. You could substitute Major Grey Chutney if you like or leave this classic: brie, filo, butter. Provide pear wedges or crusts of bread for dipping.

Addictive, spiked nuts for snacking on. A great gift recipe.

Always better homemade.Prepare batter the night before or at least several hours ahead. Serve with a nice rib steak and green salad for a real event.


If you like things nippy to the point where they bite back at you, this packed cheddar spread is for you. Great with soft or crisp pretzels, beer, or black bread.

This is from the days where pubs and general stores habitually had such cheese spreads to help hawk their crackers. White horseradish makes this a bit more fierce tasting.

These are extraordinary waffles (now inducted in my new cookbook, When Bakers Cook, 2013) Make the batter an hour ahead or preferably overnight to have waffles the next morning. These bake up deep golden, buttery and with crisp exteriors featuring a  soft, almost pudding-like interior. Great with maple syrup or topped with whipped cream, or ice-cream and fresh strawberries. Waffles are special so make sure you invest in a waffle maker that lasts a lifetime and is only as pretty as it is high-performing. The BB Test kitchen relies on our All Clad Waffle maker,

Nothing beats a tender, crispy, slightly sweet, golden corn fritter. This is a summery morsel that is a meal on its own but it is intended as as side dish or appetizer. Fresh corn is best but even canned corn comes up shining in this delicious teaser. Serve with hot sauce or go sweet with a spritz of pure maple syrup or peach chutney.

There are many ways to make onion rings. This recipe offers the lightest, crispest rings imaginable. Panko are Japanese breadcrumbs and if you try them once, (Costco sells them or Asian food markets), you'll see why they are great for chicken filets, fish and particularly, onion rings. They are available in Asian food stores.
