Tomato Crostini with Whipped Feta

What a wonderful appetizer! Whip up the feta in advance and on the day of your dinner party just slice the bread and prep the tomatoes.

Ham Frittata

Frittata or Zapekanka, call it as you wish. This dish goes beautifully with a nice Sancerre for brunch or dinner. This is one of our faves!

Not Your Store Bought Cranberry Sauce

I can’t stop eating this. Serve it with chicken or with crepes. This is a Cranberry Sauce that we eat all throughout the year.

Boil the eggs in advance and all you’ll need to do is blanch the asparagus, make the croutons and serve. Serve with Roasted Salmon and dinner is ready!


This is one of our favorite dinner recipes. Serve it with a nice glass of wine and good bread and you are good to go. As I am cooking and dicing everything a certain calm comes over me and for some reason this dish always makes a great ending to my day no matter how challenging.

Lemon Orange Trout

This is by far the easiest Trout recipe ever. The lemon and orange give it a perfect flavor to enjoy with a nice glass of Sancerre.

Salad Niçoise

This is such an easy yet absolutely fabulous dish. It is visually pleasing and can be mostly done in advance. Enjoy it with a favorite glass of white wine.

Roasted Salmon with Cherry Tomatoes

We’ve lost count as to how many times we have made this dinner. Roasted Salmon with Cherry Tomatoes is a dish on it’s own. Easy and delicious!

This is by far our favorite out of all the fish recipes. Quick, easy, and so delicious. Make it with a salad or with asparagus. The options are endless.

This Radish Salad does not get any easier. Combine all of the ingredients and serve. Makes a wonderful side dish for any occasion.

Lazy Sunday Beef Stew

This is a great stew for a lazy Sunday afternoon. Brown everything, combine and let the oven do it’s magic as you enjoy a catnap or a good book.

Sautéed Mushrooms

There are a lot of questions on how to clean mushrooms. There are two basic methods. Either brush off each mushroom with a paper towel or wash them.

Lemon Roast Chicken

The best way to prep this chicken the night before and refrigerate. The next day put it in the oven and dinner is ready. Enjoy!

Chicken Cakes

This is my mother’s go to recipe. Quick, easy and oh so delicious. Makes a great lunch, brunch or dinner. Grab a glass of wine and enjoy!

Roulette a lá Russe

Unlike the Russian Roulette this one is much tastier with a very pleasant ending. This makes a lovely dish for a dinner party.

Kat’s Boeuf Bourguignon

First tried from the Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking – this is my version. Serve it with potatoes, butter noodles, pasta or even rice.

Superbowl Pork Stew

This is a perfect meal for a lazy Sunday. Brown everything, throw it in the oven, grab a glass of wine and enjoy your afternoon.

Roasted Potatoes

Serve this as a side dish to a steak along with some roasted asparagus and a nice red wine. Easy and no hassle cooking is the point of this recipe.

Roasted Asparagus

Asparagus has never been my favorite vegetable until I learned this recipe. Use it as a side dish to steak or fish and you won’t be disappointed

The history goes on and on but one thing is clear stock (broth without the actual solids) can take a dish from ok to wow in 2 seconds.

Salad d’Olivier

Salad Olivier is a Russian staple at any celebration table. There are different variations, yet all are the same delectable result!

Apricot Glazed Lamb

If you want lamb decadence this is your recipe. Easy to make, quick to grill and absolutely delicious. This recipe serves 4.

Kat’s Russian Borsht

I prefer this soup very thick, meaning full of loads of meat and vegetables so that it is a meal on its own. You are welcome to reduce the ingredients or add more liquid. There are about as many variations to this soup as there are cooks. Every cook has their own version, this is mine. I prefer the meaty bouillon but I do not add soup bones because I find that it makes the soup entirely too heavy, especially with all that meat.

Herb Crusted Pork

This recipe is absolutely wonderful. I personally prefer it on a bed of mashed potatoes with a salad and young red wine. You can always use dried herbs just use half the amount. This is also my go to recipe for a quick dinner if I have a busy day ahead, or for a lazy Sunday afternoon. I normally marinate the meat first thing in the morning to be cooked for dinner. This way the meat really takes in all the flavors. You can also skip the marinating time and put the meat straight into the oven after rubbing with the mixture.

Chicken Pasta

My family loves this recipe and I hope you will too. This is probably the quickest and easiest pasta that could be. Just add the chicken and veggies.

Shrimp Salad

Light and perfect for a lunch or a dinner. Easy to make and delicious to eat. Pair it with your favorite white wine such as a Sancerre and dinner is served!

Sausage and Asparagus Rapée Morvandelle

I love Rappée Morvandelle no matter how hard it is to pronounce. This is a different take on the original but we still loved it and hope you will too. Make it the night before and just reheat for breakfast for a quick and easy meal.

Grilled Shrimp

This is one of favorite recipes for shrimp. So simple and delicious. We find it that it is our go to recipe for a quick dinner.

Sautéed Cod

This is definitely a weeknight meal. Combine it with some sautéed potatoes, heirloom tomatoes and a nice Riesling a 30 minute dinner becomes so much more!

Baked Brie

Hot brie with honey and caramelized walnuts make this one of the easiest and most delicious recipes we can think of. Serve it at your next dinner party.
