State fairs serve stuff like this and I knew I had to make a home version. Cheesy, creamy cheddar Mac is fried to a crisp fritter consistency. Serve with sea salt and hot sauce. It all starts with a great homemade Mac and cheese recipe.

A holiday favorite.
This is compote for spreading on pound cake or when you want a few sweet spoonfuls of a sweet chaser to finish a meal. This is one of those recipes that should be a side dish but ends up being the legend that made the meal it was made for. It is deep wine red in color, courtesy of the cherries and Italian plums, sweet and tart and utterly sublime. Yes, of course it goes on ice-cream. Or anoint it with some crème anglaise. It calls for orange juice but if you had cherry brandy around that would do nicely too.

Apples, raisins and dried cherries, along with a hot toffee sauce, make this bread pudding cake an easy delight. It is comfort food at its finest hour. Bake it, slice it and serve with the addictive sauce for a surprisingly decadent cake. You can use leftover challah or croissants for this recipe. This test cake went to a local writer's meeting for their Christmas party where it caused a stir sans proper punctuation. I serve it for non occasions too...which make those times into occasions.

A classic that takes simple ingredients to produce the ultimate comfort food. Just make sure you use a heavy bottom pot so there’s no scorching. The creamed coconut comes in a can and can be found in Asian or Indian markets or most supermarkets. It adds a wonderful creamy taste that is not too coconut-y but mostly offers a velvety texture. The trick to this is a slow simmer but the reward is indescribable.

Do they eat this in Bavaria?

The hue of this filling is like a Californian sunset. The taste is…..heavenly. A totally awesome new variety of hamantashen pastry. Dried mango and strawberries are available from Costco to bulk food stores.

This is a lovely quick summer dessert (discounting it does take a sweet yeast dough that has only one rise) that features a pastry soft-crisp base that’s anointed with a cheesecake-like topping and then finished with fresh strawberries. It is really a galette or tart but calling it Strawberry Pizza is sure to get it the notice it deserves. You could glaze this but a dusting of confectioners’ sugar is really all that’s needed. The confectioners’ sugar makes the strawberry juices leach out and gently soak into the pastry. This goes fast; refrigerate between servings. I would expect to find this served on the terrace of a French restaurant. It’s sublime in every respect.

This yeasted sweet coffeecake bread,  is as tender as a buttery brioche and reminiscent of a feather-textured Italian panettone, except with a totally new spin. It is a mildly sweet dough that encases chunks of banana, brown sugar, and (optionally), butterscotch or chocolate chips. The dough featured finely ground, toasted walnuts. Definitely not your average banana bread. Just sweet enough and just buttery enough to deliver a lovely bouquet of taste and texture. . If you hankering for a traditional baking powder/baking soda Banana Bread, quick bread style, check our recipe index Search. If you like this concept but are not a banana fan, omit the butterscotch and chocolate chips, and use 2 cups blueberries instead. Everyone who tested this, and shared it with others said:
Not a crumb left. Disappeared in seconds. Fabulous (raves from Connecticut to Florida and Indiana)

Use an Italian style pizzelle waffle iron for an authentic look
